New Campaign Expansion Announced for Star Wars: Armada

Star Wars: Armada is essentially a dog fighting game on a large scale with small ships coming in clusters and bigger ships by themselves.  Armada is a  game where you each create a fleet and battle it out to see who wins, but this expansion aims to change that.  The Corellian Conflict is a campaign expansion for the game and brings an overarching story, galaxy map, and in game consequences for winning and losing.  Now you will be able to wage battles to control key points and hyper space lanes of the Corellian sector, with control of different points offering different rewards.

Also a factor is that damage carries over from battle to battle, so a severely damaged ship at the end of one battle, will be easy pickings in the next if not repaired quickly.  Also included are an additional 16 squadron cards, allowing you to field icons like Rogue Squadron, Black Squadron, as well as bring out iconic pilots like Biggs Darklighter and Ciena Ree.  All this together is shaping this expansion into a must have for those wanting more of a story to go along with the Star Wars: Armada set.  Look for this on store shelves in the 4th quarter of 2016, and you can read the preview on the FFG site.
