May 12, 2017 - 7:50am
Star Wars Rebellion is one of the hot two player games out right now, and so Fantasy Flight Games couldn't help but expand the game to encompass more of the Star Wars universe.  Coming in the third quarter of this year is an expansion to the game called Rise of the Empire.  This box adds a bunch of new things to the game, a lot of which was inspired by the events and characters in the Rogue One movie.  You will be able to deploy Jyn Erso and Cassian Andor to find the Death Star plans and the empire will now have Director Krennic on their side with his Death Troopers. You will also get lots of new vehicles like the Interdictor, the U-wing, and the nimble TIE Striker.  There are also additional scenarios to play that allow you to play out the events of Rogue One, more from the original trilogy, and even key moments of the Star Wars: Rebels TV show.  Needless to say if you are a fan of the base game, this expansion will make it all that much better, check out FFG's preview for more information.
