"Your feeble skills are no match for the power of the dark side."
The Heart of the Empire expansion for Star Wars: Imperial Assault welcomes you to Coruscant, capital of the galaxy! This globe-spanning metropolis is home of Emperor Palpatine and countless other beings. It is also home to countless mysteries, including the location of an ancient artifact of incredible importance…
Set forth on a new, replayable campaign of sixteen missions that explore every level of the world, from its glistening halls of power to its grimy underworld alleys. You will find three new heroes ready to join the Rebellion, aided by the talented Force user Ahsoka Tano. You'll maneuver through the crowded city, chased and confronted by Imperials at every turn. And you will find the Emperor isn't the only major player working against you. The former Sith, Maul, has sent a Clawdite Shapeshifter to findthe artifact, and any face in the crowd might hide the Shapeshifter's true identity.
Altogether, Heart of the Empire expands your campaign and skirmish games with three heroes and thirteen other figures, such as the massive AT-DP, baton-wielding Riot Troopers, and twin-gunned Sentry Droids. Coruscant will come to life with dozens of new map tiles and more than 130 cards. New energy shield and rubble tokens will throw a wrench in your opponent’s plans by modifying the battlefield, and new power tokens will give you more control over your fate than ever before!
