WizKids has announced numerous new initiatives to update their Star Trek Attack Wing game.
First, WizKids will be releasing a digital version of the revised rulebook. The digital version will contain refreshed rules that incorporate rulings and FAQs released online, providing an up-to-date comprehensive rulebook. No need to worry – all previously released STAW product will be compatible; no products will become obsolete in conjunction with this update.
Second, WizKids will release a new configuration of STAW products. These products will have a lower price point and contain new content, but will not include ship models. While the new configurations won’t include ship models, they will note the previously-released ships customers need to purchase. The new configuration will offer a more cost-effective option for players who already have many copies of an existing ship sculpt. In addition to a lower price point, these packs will include a selection of updated content to support updated rules for ship models of the same type.
Third, WizKids will be introducing faction packs. These faction packs will also benefit from the improved discount structure. These packs will provide a ready-to-play fleet of ships from the same faction that will allow new players to field a team while providing a lower priced value (per ship) to new and veteran customers.
Fourth, WizKids will continue to increase their paint quality across the line. They promise that their ships have never looked better.
Last but certainly not least, WizKids has been exploring a process that will allow fans to submit their very own content ideas to WizKids. There may be limitations to this endeavor, but WizKids believes the STAW community can provide many exciting ideas. There are many details that will need to be worked out before they can announce anything more specific about the submission process.
Please note it will take some time to bring all these products to the market but WizKids hopes to roll most of these products out in 2017.
Live long and prosper.
