Fantasy Flight Game’s new tactical ship-to-ship combat game allows you to control rebel X-wings and Imperial TIE fighters in a fast paced battle to your tabletop. FFG has given another view of the upcoming X-Wing miniatures game with a peek of how ships and upgrade cards work.
The core set includes 13 ship cards and five upgrade cards that can each lend a different feel to the battles between Rebel and Imperial fighters. The Core set include one X-wing and two TIE Fighters. Expansion packs add more options to your starfighters in your squadrons and a wide range of pilots to choose from. Imperial players get single fighter expansion packs for the TIE/In and TIE Advanced. The TIE Fighter Expansion Pack adds six ship cards and three upgrade cards, and the TIE Advanced Expansion Pack comes with four ship cards including one representing, wait for it… Darth Vader! It also expands your squad building options with five upgrade cards.
