Default X-Wing New Releases

New faction coming in Q4 of this year. “You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy.” –Obi-Wan Kenobi

Quote:
“This bounty hunter is my kind of scum, fearless and inventive.”
–Jabba the Hutt

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce that in the sixth wave of starship expansions for X-Wing™ the galaxy’s Scum and Villainy will join the game's fast-paced space battles as its third faction!

The ranks of the Scum and Villainy faction are filled with many of the Star Wars galaxy’s most notorious bounty hunters, pirates, and Black Sun agents. You’ll find such infamous figures as Boba Fett, IG-88, Greedo, and Prince Xizor. These Scum live outside the law, do their best to remain at the periphery of the ongoing Galactic Civil War, and allow no one – no one – to threaten their profits.

Whenever Rebel or Imperial forces dare to interfere with their illicit dealings, Scum head to battle, and they do so in some of the best starfighters that money can buy, such as Slave I, IG-2000, and the MandalMotors StarViper-class attack platform. These expensive and technologically advanced starships are further supported by a number of mainstays that have proven their efficiency over the course of numerous battles.

I am reminded of the stars wars RTS: Star Wars: Empire at War: Forces of Corruption : I've never seen so many Colons in a game title.

note: if you see me giving tactical advice: just assume i have a internet tab open to 1d4 chan and I'm summarizing off of that.

No idea why it's on a larger base, I don't even recognize that ship or the two to its right.

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

Something I'm slightly confused about X wing, and forgive me if I have no idea what the hell I'm talking about, as I said I'm confused

I had to double check the timing on this but X wing started in August of 2012, Disney bought Starwars in October.

So, logically, Final Fantasy would have had to get the rights to make X wing from Lucasfilm, not Disney. Does that mean if (or maybe when) Disney comes out with this cool new ship for the upcoming movies they can't use it for there game because that ship was not part of the original deal with Lucasfilm?

note: if you see me giving tactical advice: just assume i have a internet tab open to 1d4 chan and I'm summarizing off of that.

A quick google gets me this.

http://community.fantasyflightgames....isney-and-ffg/

Nothing definitive, but a few more reads suggests that people think it would be strange for Disney to turn down the money gained from FFG (Fantasy Flight, not Final Fantasy) considering what else has happened in the industry. After all, they purchased the agreement from Lucas Film who had the license extended to FFG, so it would carry over. In regards to the new ships, it seems likely that they'd capitalise on the existing infrastructure and fanbase along with the generated hype from the films, similar to what Lord of the Rings and Warhammer did - it's just a shame after all that, that the LotR game franchise was recieved so poorly (it didn't help that the game was so poor either - IMHO, a Warhammer fantasy version would have been preferable).

Disney are no strangers to cashing in on merchandising, so it shouldn't be much of a probelm.
