FFG Announces Holiday Preview Wave for Star Wars Destiny

December 22, 2017 - 4:55pm
Fantasy Flight Games has announced a new booster set as well as two new starter sets coming out in 2018 for its popular dice game, Star Wars: Destiny. Even better, limited quantities of these will be available prior to general release to whet the whistle for those lucky enough to get them. The two new starter sets are the Luke Skywalker set (Luke Skywalker and Han Solo) and the Boba Fett set (Boba Fett and a Veteran Stormtrooper), both with powerful cards and iconic Star Wars characters that will get you off to a great start. In addition to those sets, the Legacies booster set adds 160 cards with all new characters.

"The Star Wars universe is a galaxy of change. Fans have watched regimes rise and fall as the legacy of their favorite characters shifts with the dramatic twists of the generation-spanning saga.

Now, you can experience those iconic moments with Legacies, a new 160-card booster set for Star Wars: Destiny! Legacies expands on the themes found in the first three sets with new mechanics, card types, and symbols!"

All of these had been previously announced, but the biggest news is that some gamers will not have to wait until the regular release date to get their hands on these packs. On December 15, these packs will be available to those customers in the European market in limited quantities. On January 11, they will be available to North American customers, also in limited quantities.

"Celebrate the holiday season with brand-new Star Wars: Destiny products. While this special Holiday Preview Wave offers a sneak preview at our upcoming Star Wars: Destiny products, it is important to note that none of these cards will be legal for tournament play until the wide release of these products early in the first quarter of 2018, alongside the official Legacies launch kit."
