On the edges of civilized space, there's bound to be some conflict. You've got smugglers looking to trade goods. There's the Empire looking to stop them. And, of course, a smuggler might get double-crossed by the person they're working for. In this preview for Star Wars: Outer Rim Fantasy Flight looks at how combat will work in the game.
From the post:
While the allure of the Outer Rim attracts those seeking fame and fortune, there is always a cost. Only a select few become legends whispered about in seedy cantinas, the rest fall to the dangers that await on the Star Wars galaxy’s edge. Physical altercations are almost assured as these daring scoundrels pursue bounties, take on dangerous jobs, and outwit intimidating patrols.
While some smugglers avoid firefights at all costs, others revel in it, seeing firefights as a path to fame or infamy in the Outer Rim. With your blaster alone, you can hunt down powerful bounties or even destroy the galaxy’s most notorious factions' patrol ships. But getting in too many scraps can slow you down, and biting off more than you can chew at the edge of the galaxy can mean ultimate defeat.
Join us today as we preview combat in Star Wars™: Outer Rim a game of bounty hunters, mercenaries and smugglers for one to four players!
