Star Wars Rebellion Expansion announced

Brent | May 16, 2017


One of the best games of last year (let alone one of the best 2 player games) was Star Wars: Rebellion. The game had players taking on the role of the Rebellion and the Empire in a galactic scale game of Cat and Mouse. Fantasy Flight games have decided to cash in even more on this little gem by encompassing more of the Star Wars universe.

Expected to be released in the third quarter of this year is "Rise of the Empire", the first expansion for the game. It will add a bunch of new things to the game, mainly inspired by the events and characters in the Rogue One movie.

Here is what FFG had to say:

"You can send Jyn Erso and Cassian Andor to recover the Death Star plans. You can confuse Imperials with false orders and assaults behind enemy lines. You can command Director Krennic and his finest death troopers. And you can set traps for the Rebel pilots and soldiers, luring them away from their base and into massive battles with more fully cinematic combat and tactics. Even Jabba the Hutt makes an appearance, offering his services to the Empire and feeding his prisoners to the Sarlaac."

"Altogether, Rise of the Empire enhances your games with eight new leaders, thirty-six plastic miniatures, five target markers, two attachment rings, three new dice, and more than one-hundred new cards. You'll find U-wings, TIE Strikers, Nebulon-B frigates, and the Interdictor. You'll gain new ways of subverting your opponent's plans, and you'll discover a whole new chapter in your ongoing Galactic Civil War!"
