Fantasy Flight Games: Star Wars Imperial Assault - Jabba's Realm Expansion Pre-Order

Venture into Jabba's Realm with the latest Star Wars Imperial Assault expansion by Fantasy Flight Games. Fight epic skirmishes with your beloved characters and face the mighty Rancor

Fantasy Flight Games announced the upcoming release of the latest Star Wars Imperial Assault expansion taking the fight to Jabba's Realm on Tatooine. Jabba’s Realm is a new expansion for Imperial Assault that offers a wealth of new content for your campaigns and skirmishes. You’ll find an entirely new full-length campaign that challenges you to survive among the desert wastes and criminal underworld of Tatooine, even as new skirmish missions invite you to battle in the Nal Hutta Borderlands or around the fabled Pit of Carkoon. 

Imperial reprisals have swept the galaxy, targeting not just the Rebels, but their families and loved ones as well. In desperation, you and a team of other Rebel operatives have gathered as many refugees as you can in hopes of shepherding them to safety in the Outer Rim. Your escape is discovered, however, and you’ve been shot down on Tatooine. Here, the power of the Empire is not as strong as elsewhere—but that doesn’t mean you’re out of danger. This is the domain of Jabba the Hutt, and you’ll need to play by his rules if you want to survive.

Eighteen new double-sided map tiles evoke the opening scenes of Return of the Jedi, giving you access for the first time to Jabba’s palace, his pleasure barge, and iconic locations like the sarlacc pit. Meanwhile, sixteen brand-new plastic figures offer new warriors and heroes for the Imperials, Rebels, and Mercenaries, even as new Command cards, Deployment cards, Agenda cards, and Class cards give you countless ways to customize your game. With characters like Jabba the Hutt, the Rancor, and Luke Skywalker as a Jedi Knight joining the game, this expansion draws you into the Star Wars saga like never before.

Field new powerful Allies and Villains

What’s more, four new Ally Packs and Villain Packs arrive corresponding with the Jabba’s Realm expansion, highlighting the expansion’s most famous characters and offering new cards and missions for your campaigns and skirmishes. Whether you learn the ways of the Force with Luke Skywalker, launch an unexpected ambush with the Alliance Rangers, lead Imperial forces with Captain Terro, or build a criminal empire with Jabba the Hutt, you’ll find the figures you need within these expansions. For more information on these figure packs, visit the announcement here!

Jabba's Realm Campaign and Missions

Your games of Imperial Assault gain an entirely new, full-length campaign with the addition of Jabba’s Realm, challenging a brave team of Rebel heroes to survive after they’re shot down on Tatooine. These heroes will soon learn that Jabba the Hutt may be willing to protect you from Imperial forces, but his protection comes at a price. You and your fellow heroes will need to decide just how far you’re willing to go in the service of an underhanded crime lord. 

Three new heroes join the Rebellion in this expansion, each ready to fight the Empire in their own unique way. Shyla Varad is a Mandalorian warrior, renowned for her skill with blade and whip, and eager to practice her warrior traditions against the Empire. Vinto Hreeda, on the other hand, is a reckless vigilante and gunslinger—an expert sharpshooter who has plenty of grudges to bear against the Empire. Finally, the Rebels gain the allegiance of Onar Koma, a hulking Aqualish bodyguard with an almost unmatched strength in battle. The Imperial player will need to work his hardest to take out three heroes as well-equipped as these. Of course, each of these heroes comes with a completely unique deck of Class cards, and we’ll look at these heroes in much more detail in a future preview.

The Imperial player gains plenty of new campaign tricks as well. New sets of Agenda cards and two brand-new Imperial classes—one focused on villains and one featuring the Mercenaries faction—give you countless ways to customize your forces, ensuring that every campaign is different, no matter how many times you play. With an assortment of new Supply cards, new Reward cards, new Companion cards like the Pit Droid, and new Item cards such as the Hand Cannon, you can bring your games of Imperial Assault fully into the treacherous dealings and back-alley gunfights of the Tatooine underworld. 

With your ship shot down on Tatooine and your lives in danger at every turn, you have a choice to make. Will you work with Jabba the Hutt in exchange for his protection? Can you serve the Rebel Alliance and a crime lord at the same time? Whether you’re playing a campaign or a skirmish game, the Jabba’s Realm expansion will change your games forever. Look for Jabba’s Realm at your local retailer in the fourth quarter of 2016!
