Calling all TCG and Star Wars fans! Prepare to get excited because Fantasy Flight Games and Lucasfilm Ltd. have just made a big announcement.
Coming in 2024, Star Wars: Unlimited will be an all-new TCG. Featuring characters, ships and settings from all corners of the Star Wars universe, expect to see content based on the movies, TV shows, comics and video games. This TCG will also be getting plenty of attention from Fantasy Flight as it has been announced that there will be three sets released per year.
We’ve seen plenty of card games come from Fantasy Flight in recent years such as Living Card Games and Deckbuilders. However, Star Wars: Unlimited, will be a return to form as a typical Trading Card Game in every sense. In fact, co-designer Jim Cartwright has gone on record claiming that this will be a “non-gimmicky TCG” and that Star Wars: Unlimited has had more resources dedicated to it than any other game in the history of Fantasy Flight Games. We are promised that this release will be “both easy to learn and strategically deep”.
FFG are no strangers to Trading Card Games, although some of them ended up being cancelled leaving fans disappointed. However, with the release schedule already planned years ahead and the fact that the designers are arranging ‘Organised Play’ at games stores to establish a community of gamers, we’re hoping that this will be a TCG that is here to stay.
No prices or exact dates have been announced yet but we will certainly be keeping our eyes peeled for more information. Although, didn’t Obi Wan say that our eyes could deceive us? Oh well, we will just have to use the force then!
