The Clone Wars is hitting big right now, first with new seasons being announced and now with it being added to X-wing: The Miniatures game.
So far there isn’t much information given about what this will entail but the Jedi Starfighter and the Sith Infiltrator have both been previewed at Gen-Con. It means that X-wing will now become a 7 faction game as opposed to the two faction game it currently is.
The fact it has even taken this long is kind of surprising but it seems to be a shifting marketing trend from higher ups as well. But it means that a whole slew of new recognizable ships and characters can now be added to the game like Obi-Wan, Ahsoka, Darth Maul and General Grievous as opposed to waves featuring literal whos like “Talonbane Cobra” and “Quickdraw.”
It will be interesting to see how it all interacts in the time to come, if there will be Anakin flying across the table from Kylo Ren or if there will be an eras system implemented to make things more cinematic.
