From Fantasy Flight Games comes Star Wars: Imperial Assault, designed by Justin Kemppainen and Corey Konieczka. Imperial Assault will place players in the middle of the war between the Galactic Empire and the Rebel Alliance. Playing 2-5 players in about 90 minutes, Imperial Assault will offer two different modes of play. In the Campaign game, players will be able to play through an arc that is set in the Star Wars Universe. The Galactic Empire will be controlled by one player and others will team up to form the Rebel Alliance using sabotage and stealth to achieve victory. Players who continue to play through the story arc will will see their characters grow and gain new abilities to use in future missions. But beware, the controller of the Galactic Empire will gain new abilities as well and will attempt to thwart your progress at every turn! Skirmish mode offers two players the chance to go at it in tactical combat, both competing for the same objective.
