Fantasy Flight Previews Rise of the Empire Expansion for Star Wars: Rebellion

Wars are not one or lost on just a single battle. Sure, there might be one, climactic event that ends things, but there's a long chain of other battles, logistics, secret missions, intelligence, and other such along the way that got to that battle. In Star Wars: Rebellion, you have to complete missions in order to advance your military's agenda and gain the upper hand. Well, a new expansion is coming out soon called Rise of the Empire. In this preview, Fantasy Flight Games is showing off some of the new missions you'll be going on.

From the post:

Inspired heavily by Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the Rise of the Empire expansion for Star Wars™: Rebellion adds a whole new chapter to the game's dramatic take on the Galactic Civil War.

With new leaders, units, and missions, Rise of the Empire thrusts us deep into a dark time for the galaxy. The oppressive rule of the Galactic Empire spreads from system to system, destroying all peace and hope. And there are rumors that the Empire is constructing a secret battlestation of unimaginable power…

Over the course of our previews, we'll explore how the expansion's new leaders, units, action cards, dice, and cinematic combat give life to such iconic characters as Jyn Erso, Cassian Andor, Director Krennic, and Jabba the Hutt. We'll look at the dramatic narratives and tense tactical decisions it introduces to your games. And we start today with a look at its missions.
