Star Wars: Armada lets you command entire fleets of giants starships and the swarms of fighters they carry. It's been a bit since we've seen much for the game, but that doesn't mean that the folks at Fantasy Flight haven't been working on it. They've got a bunch of announcements for the game coming after Gen Con Online. There's new Separatists and Republic forces, as well as upgrade packs and new dials coming out.
From the article:
In the epic space battles of Star Wars™: Armada, no two fleets are the same. Not only do you have the power to hand pick the ships under your command, you’re also invited to outfit your ships with a range of upgrades. From assigning iconic commanders and officers to lead your fleets to outfitting your ships with additional weapons and ordnance, you’re free to fine tune your fleets down to the last detail.
Even the best admirals rely on these tools to claim victory and, with Armada entering the Clone Wars, you’ll soon have access to everything you need to dominate the galaxy. Fantasy Flight Games is excited to announce two expansions for Star Wars: Armada:
Bringing together a hangar bay of 290 essential upgrades in a new standard-sized card format, the Upgrade Card Collection gives you the flexibility to immediately start assembling the perfect fleet. Meanwhile, the Dial Pack allows you to further expand your fleets with 10 additional command dials and seven additional speed dials.
Whether you’re comfortable commanding a fleet of Imperial-class Star Destroyers or are just entering the game with a Fleet Starter, these packs give you more power than ever to assemble the Star Wars fleet that you've always wanted to command.
From the article:
Turmoil is spreading across the Star Wars™ galaxy. Commanded by the sinister Count Dooku, the Separatist Alliance has drawn numerous worlds into open insurrection against the Galactic Republic. Massive Separatist fleets crewed by battle droids and commanded by nefarious corporate leaders move from the Outer Rim to the Core Worlds, launching fresh assaults after each one the Republic thwarts. As the Separatists bring the full weight of their armada to bear, it could bring the Republic crashing down at any moment.
Soon, you’ll be able to assume command of these fleets and experience the tactical fleet combat of a whole new era. Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the first Separatist Alliance expansions for Star Wars™: Armada:
With three highly-detailed, pre-painted capital ships, two commanders, and 12 starfighter squadrons between them, these expansions form the foundations for your Separatist fleet and invite you to begin your quest to dominate the galaxy. What’s more, you’ll also find all essential components needed for one player to begin playing Armada, making this the perfect entry point for new players or veterans looking to explore a new faction alike.
