Fantasy Flight Games isn’t letting off the gas for Star Wars: Armada – check out the teaser for the next Clone Wars Wave!
Star Wars: Armada has been in a bit of a limbo for a while. The last release was the 100% Amazing Super Star Destroyer. While that was pretty spectacular, fans of the game have also been waiting for a “real” release for awhile. Well, it sounds like Fantasy Flight Games has heard the fans loud and clear because the past week they announced a new wave of ships set in the Clone Wars Era!
War! The ancient Jedi Order has taken to the stars to defend the Galactic Republic. As the threat of the Separatist Alliance spreads, leaving plundered worlds and petty tyrants in its wake, the Republic fleet is often outnumbered, but never outmatched. Guided by the ideals of the Republic, commanding legions of dedicated Clone Troopers, and equipped with versatile warships and elite starfighters, champions such as Obi-Wan Kenobi and Bail Organa fight to bring a swift end to the chaos of the Clone Wars and restore peace to the galaxy.
This Fleet Starter lays the foundation for your Galactic Republic fleets by putting you in command of a mighty Acclamator-class Assault ship and two powerful Consular-class Cruiser miniatures. These ships are joined by four squadrons of V-19 Torrent Starfighters flown by crack clone pilots ready to defend the fleet. Additionally, 20 upgrade cards invite you to customize every aspect of your ships with iconic officers and powerful weapons.
War! Commanded by the sinister Count Dooku, the Separatist Alliance has drawn numerous worlds into open insurrection against the Galactic Republic, spreading chaos and tyranny in the name of greed. With its powerful warships and vast reserves of droid forces, the Separatist fleet seems an insurmountable threat to peace and freedom in the galaxy.
This Fleet Starter provides the building blocks for your own Separatist fleet, starting with a Munificent-class Frigate miniature and two Hardcell-class Transport miniatures. These ships are supplemented by four squadrons of Vulture-class Droid Fighters ready to swarm their enemies. In addition to these miniatures, six ship cards give you the power to choose the exact models that make up your fleet and 20 upgrade cards invite you to fine-tune each ship with iconic officers, powerful weapons, and more.
Abe did a good job breaking down all these ships and he’s already on the hype train for more Armada. So much so that he’s wanted everyone to know another teaser image was shown off during the FFG GenCon Online livestream:
We can see that FFG is going heavy into Star Wars: Armada’s Clone War era. There are some big hitters there as well as fan favorites with two new ships for the Clone forces of the Republic and the Robot forces of the Separatists.
Get ready to return to the Clone War era in Star Wars: Armada!
