Fantasy Flight Games Previews C-3PO and R2-D2 Ally Pack for Imperial Assault
Star Wars: A New Hope, for those that might not have realized it, is told through the perspective of the two droids, C-3PO and R2-D2. Except for a few scenes here and there, they’re in most of them. And the story follows not Luke or Han, but the droids. The film is about getting the plans for the Death Star to the Rebels. That makes R2 the most important part of the story. Well, now the droids can be part of your Imperial Assault story. Fantasy Flight is coming out with a new ally pack.
Of course, you get more than just the couple of figures in the pack (which would replace tokens you get from the Twin Shadows set, if you get that one). There’s a new campaign side mission as well as two skirmish missions to help vary up your playing experience. Along with that, there’s five new Command Cards to help make sure that you get the most out of those lovable scamps.
