Tabletop firm Fantasy Flight Video games has introduced Star Wars: Limitless, a brand new TCG protecting the total breadth of the setting. It is described as a “fast-paced, dynamic game that’s each straightforward to be taught and strategically deep”, aiming to please informal gamers and event die-hards alike.

The playing cards will function characters, ships, and places, drawing from the “films, TV sequence, comics, video video games, and all the things in between”. I can see it now: a aggressive scene flooded with Durge aggro and Quinlan Vos management decks.  

The intention appears to be for this to be the be-all, end-all of Star Wars TCGs, with one thing for everybody—and presumably an extended lifespan. It actually is sensible to go broad when your competitors is behemoths like Magic: The Gathering and the Pokémon TCG, to not point out potential threats like Disney Lorcana on the horizon. 

However this may increasingly even be a little bit of an try to wipe the slate clear. Fantasy Flight Video games has a specific amount of egg on its face with regards to card video games. Its earlier Star Wars TCG Future died a quiet dying (although COVID-19 actually did not assist its probabilities); the distinctive and common Keyforge was positioned on an extended hiatus after which handed off to a different firm seemingly due to a pc glitch (sure, actually); and followers are nonetheless lamenting the premature dumping of Android: Netrunner. An enormous, broad, profitable Star Wars TCG would definitely match properly into the corporate’s spectacular portfolio of board video games, tabletop RPGs, and card video games. 

If any firm has an opportunity at launching a brand new staple TCG at present, it most likely is Fantasy Flight Video games. “Star Wars: Limitless is the fruits of FFG’s wealthy historical past combined with the celebrated Star Wars model,” says the corporate’s assertion. “As a studio, we’re placing unprecedented sources throughout each division into this game.” That is a whole lot of experience in Star Wars and tabletop video games, and, with huge board game writer Asmodee as its proprietor, a whole lot of potential sources. 

We’ll discover out if the Drive is with Fantasy Flight Video games when Star Wars: Limitless launches in 2024.
