Fantasy Flight Games gives us another look inside the upcoming X-Wing miniatures game with a glimpse of how Ship and Upgrade cards work.

From the preview:

X-Wing™, the miniatures game of thrilling Star Wars space combat, is coming this summer at Gen Con Indy 2012. With its tense dogfights, intuitive rules, and stunning miniatures, X-Wing brings the magic of the movies’ most dramatic space battles to your tabletop.

In our earlier X-Wing previews, we’ve reviewed the rules for combat and explored how the development team’s commitment to detail led to the stunning sculpts for the game’s starfighters, including a TIE fighter produced accurately at scale for the first time in the industry. Today, we’ll take a look at some of the ways you can customize your experience.

    FFG is taking their friggin sweet time with this IP … where is the RPG, the minis games, the board games? It has been a full year that they have had the IP and we have so far seen nada, squat, nothing ….

    Don’t get me wrong, I am a pretty big fan of FFG they put out quality products!! I am just anxious to see them put Star Wars universe products out!!! HURRY UP ALREADY FFG!!

      The card game got delayed because they are redoing it. It originally was going to be a coop game like LOTR but it seems from current info on the site, it’s not longer coop based.

      X-Wing should be out for Gencon, so soon.

      And really, FFG takes forever to release all their games.

    If I remember correctly they only have the license to make miniature games (X-wing) and card games (new SW LCG) so no RPGs or boardgames I’m afraid.

      There original announcement said specifically Roleplaying games. The announcement which was on both Starwars.com and FFG’s site said Card, Miniature, and Roleplaying games. Doesn’t say board games though.

  • It’s got to be a tough juggle. Hopefully taking their time will mean a high quality release (knowing FFG I’d say that’s what is going to happen), but even with limited use Star Wars has to be an expensive license. They won’t want to be sitting on it too long.
