New Expansions Announced For Imperial Assault

Some people might've thought that since Fantasy Flight came out with Star Wars: Legion, that maybe Imperial Assault would get left behind. It does seem like it's been a while since the last expansion came out, but that will soon change. Fantasy Flight's announced the Tyrants of Lothal expansion, as well as several Ally and Villain packs.




The struggle against the Empire is just beginning. Throughout the galaxy, resistance groups have begun to join together into a Rebel Alliance. The Outer Rim planet of Lothal is under the watchful eyes of Grand Admiral Thrawn, who monitors the planet for Rebel activity, looking to crush it beneath the Empire's heel. The Lothal Resistance has arisen to fight back against this tyrannical oppression, and now it's your turn to answer the call!

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce Tyrants of Lothal, a new expansion for Imperial Assault, available for pre-order now from your local retailer! Tyrants of Lothal is not releasing alone either, so be sure to also pre-order the Ezra Bridger and Kanan Jarrus Ally Pack, the Sabine Wren and Zeb Orrelios Ally Pack, the Thrawn Villain Pack, and the Hondo Ohnaka Villain Pack to upgrade your Imperial Assault experience! You can find out more information about these additional figure packs here.

Tyrants of Lothal introduces new heroes, enemies, allies, map tiles and a six-part mini-campaign for Imperial Assault, the strategy game of epic missions and thrilling combat. These components bring the planet of Lothal to life and give you the oppurtunity to join the burgeoning Rebel Alliance. Whether it's in a campaign or skirmish game, the fate of the Rebellion rests on your shoulders… but you're not alone. Join the crew of the Ghost from Star Wars Rebels in your epic fight against Grand Admiral Thrawn, your dealings with the shifty pirate Hondo Ohnaka, and your mission to take down the tyrants of Lothal!

Before Luke Skywalker blew up the dreaded Death Star, before Princess Leia called for aid from an old war hero, before the Rebel Alliance crystalized into a force that would bring down a Galactic Empire, there was Phoenix Squadron. They were a band of rebels who fought against the Empire in the Lothal sector, tucked away in the outer rim of the Star Wars galaxy. Thanks to the crew of the Ghost from Star Wars Rebels, they acheived great success.

Still, Phoenix Squadron has enemies. With the increased Rebel activity in the Lothal sector, the Emperor has sent one of his most trusted and efficient servants, the dreaded Grand Admiral Thrawn, to hunt down and destroy Phoenix Squadron. Sensing profit from chaos, the pirate Hondo Ohnaka hides on the edges of the conflict, more than willing to assist the side with the deepest pockets.

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce four new figure packs for Imperial Assault available now for pre-order from your local retailer:

Ezra Bridger and Kanan Jarrus Ally Pack
Sabine Wren and Zeb Orrelios Ally Pack
Thrawn Villain Pack
Hondo Ohnaka Villain Pack

These figure packs contain everything you need to add these heroes and villains to your Imperial Assault campaign and skirmish games! Daring missions, powerful command cards and beautifully sculpted figures await you in each of these packs! These figure packs will release alongside Tyrants of Lothal, and they work in conjunction with the mini-campaign found in that expansion.
