Star Wars: Armada two-player fleet battle game launched


Fantasy Flight Games have announced the launch of Star Wars: Armada, a new two-player space fleet miniature battle game of Rebels and Imperials dogfighting it out for your amusement.

One of the more pivotal elements of the game is the “unique maneuver tool”, which simulates inertia and turning when flying through space.

“Capital ships can’t easily vary their speeds or execute hairpin turns like the starfighters that buzz around them,” explains FFG. “Accordingly, you only use the maneuver tool to maneuver your capital ships. Then, even as it makes it easy for you to set a ship’s course, the game’s maneuver tool lends an element of realism to its pitch and yaw.”

“As an example of how Armada uses its maneuver tool to realistically portray the different ways its capital ships can maneuver, we can consider the differences between the CR90 and the Victory-class Star Destroyer.”

In classic FFG example, the game is explained to death over on the official website, so head over there and take a look!
