Largely inspired by the characters and events of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Rise of the Empire is an expansion for Star Wars: Rebellion that adds new depth and intrigue to the game’s epic conflicts between the tyrannical Galactic Empire and rag-tag Rebel Alliance.

Altogether, Rise of the Empire introduces eight new leaders, thirty-six plastic miniatures, five target markers, two attachment rings, three new dice, and more than one-hundred new cards. You’ll find U-wings, TIE Strikers, Nebulon-B frigates, and assault tanks. You’ll gain new ways of subverting your opponent’s plans, and you’ll discover a whole new chapter in your ongoing Galactic Civil War!

This new expansion adds a ton of new stuff to the game and some new mechanics as well. You can play through the new missions or you can combine the sets and see what craziness the game gets up to. Want to see if the Death Star Plans can be stolen by Luke Skywalker and Han Solo? Or maybe the fiendish Jabba the Hut can capture Jyn Erso! How will your Rebellion play out?

New leaders. New missions. New tactic cards that lead to more fully cinematic combats… Rise of the Empire is an expansion for Star Wars™: Rebellion inspired largely by Rogue One. And just as the movie provided new insight into the Galactic Civil War presented in the original Star Wars trilogy, Rise of the Empire adds new depth and story to your Rebellion game experience.

You can send Jyn Erso and Cassian Andor to recover the Death Star plans. You can confuse Imperials with false orders and assaults behind enemy lines. You can command Director Krennic and his finest death troopers. And you can set traps for the Rebel pilots and soldiers, luring them away from their base and into massive battles with more fully cinematic combat and tactics. Even Jabba the Hutt makes an appearance, offering his services to the Empire and feeding his prisoners to the Sarlaac.

Altogether, Rise of the Empire introduces eight new leaders, thirty-six plastic miniatures, five target markers, two attachment rings, three new dice, and more than one-hundred new cards. You’ll find U-wings, TIE Strikers, Nebulon-B frigates, and the Interdictor. You’ll gain new ways of subverting your opponent’s plans, and you’ll discover a whole new chapter in your ongoing Galactic Civil War!

 

If it’s based on Rogue One, shouldn’t it be Rise of the Rebellion? Ohhh It’s cause of the Death Star …got it.
