What is Star Wars Rebellion Rise of the Empire Expansion about?

There are new leaders. There are new missions. New tactic cards for more cinematic combat. Mostly inspired by Rogue One, Rise of the Empire is an expansion for Star Wars: Rebellion. And just as the movie provided new insight into the Galactic Civil War presented in the original Star Wars trilogy, Rise of the Empire adds new depth and story to your Rebellion game experience.

The Death Star plans can be recovered by Jyn Erso and Cassian Andor. By giving false orders and attacking behind enemy lines, you can confuse Imperials. You’ll be in charge of Director Krennic’s death squads. Using cinematic combat and tactics, you can lure Rebel pilots and soldiers away from their base and into massive battles. Even Jabba the Hutt shows up, offering his services to the Empire and feeding his prisoners.

The galaxy is having a dark time, and it’s getting darker. Galactic Empire spreads oppressive rule to new systems every day, destroying all hope and peace. There’s also rumours that the Empire is building a secret battle station with unimaginable power. In the face of this overwhelming threat, only a few unlikely heroes can save the world.

You can control one or both sides of this struggle with Rebellion. Whether you’re in charge of the growing Galactic Empire or the fledgling Rebel Alliance, you’re in charge. Your military strength, resources, and political alliances must be balanced against your secret missions to advance your cause. If you want to win battles or have your forces succeed on missions, you have to keep an eye on the loyalties of whole systems.

The result is that your game becomes a story of individual heroics with far-reaching consequences, and that story depends a lot on the missions you complete. As a result, Rise of the Empire has brand new missions for Empire and Rebellion that take your Rebellion games outside the original Star Wars trilogy, allowing you to start out with the Death Star under construction and Director Krennic eager to see it done.
