Fantasy Flight Games has announced the first expansion to last years popular Star Wars Rebellion Board Game. Rise of The Empire takes the original game back in time, adding a wealth of content heavily inspired by the film Rouge One.

Inspired largely by the characters and events of Rogue One, Rise of the Empire introduces a plethora of new heroes, villains, starships, troopers, and vehicles from that film, alongside other characters, ships, and events from Star Wars: Rebels and the classic trilogy, plus new missions that add more drama and intrigue to your games.
