X-Wing Second Edition to get first play at UK Games Expo
See it on the FFG stand
Star Wars and games fans alike should make a lightspeed jump to the 2018 UK Games Expo, where the much-anticipated X-Wing™ Second Edition will receive its Europe-exclusive first play!
Announced by Fantasy Flight Games in May, X-Wing Second Edition is the next evolution of the publisher’s hugely popular X-Wing Miniatures Game, a thrilling game of daring manoeuvres and deadly dogfighting with iconic ships from the Star Wars universe.
This revamped edition, featuring the same fast-paced, high-stakes battles with custom-built squadrons but boasting improved rules and exciting new additions, is not due for full release until September but will be on show all weekend at stand 1-E14 at Expo for aspiring pilots to try out – the first public play anywhere in Europe!
Chief among the changes that differentiate X-Wing Second Edition from its predecessor is the introduction of Force powers. The convention will represent players’ first chance to see how pilots like Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader can use their connection to the Force to turn the tide of battle at crucial moments.
With a renewed focus on flying and manoeuvring and a set of comprehensive Conversion Kits allowing veteran players to carry their collections into the new format, X-Wing Second Edition has plenty to offer seasoned players as well as representing an ideal jumping-on point for new faces.
Players should make sure to visit Fantasy Flight Games’ tables at stand 1-E14, where Asmodee UK will be offering demonstrations of this exciting new era for interstellar tabletop combat.
