“All wings report in!”
–Red Leader, Star Wars: A New Hope
From the skies of Scarif in Rogue One to the climactic clash above Endor in Return of the Jedi, starfighters have played a pivotal role in almost every defining battle of the Galactic Civil War. During these confrontations, the brave members of the Rebel Alliance faced seemingly insurmountable odds, squaring off against the merciless forces of the Galactic Empire in intense, ship-to-ship space combat.
Since its release, X-Wing™ Miniatures Game has invited you to enter the Star Wars galaxy and play out your own battles with some of the series’ most iconic starfighters. Leading custom-built squadrons into fast-paced, high-stakes battles, you’ve flown with the Galactic Empire, the Rebel Alliance, and the Scum and Villainy of the galaxy in countless battles. You’ve modified your ships for every scrap of speed, maneuverability, and firepower. Now, it’s time for a new chapter in your X-Wing journey.
Today, Fantasy Flight Games is excited to announce the next evolution of your interstellar dogfights: X-Wing Second Edition, a game of daring space combat for two players! With three fully assembled and beautifully pre-painted ships, and all the cards, movement tools, tokens, and dice that you need to get flying with the second edition, the X-Wing Second Edition Core Set is the perfect way to introduce yourself to the new mechanics or experience X-Wing for the first time.
While the X-Wing Second Edition Core Set provides everything you need to get started with your first space battles in the new edition, it isn’t all that will be on offer. You can bring your full collection of first edition ships into the new edition with Conversion Kits for the Galactic Empire, Rebel Alliance, and Scum and Villainy. What’s more, a full hangar bay of expansions will launch alongside the Core Set, giving you plenty of options for creating your squadrons and customizing your X-Wing Second Edition experience.
