Found this in the desciption of Edge of Darkness:
Edge of Darkness is the first deluxe expansion for Star Wars™: The Card Game. Its twenty-two unique objective sets add 132 total cards that allow players to battle for the fate of the galaxy as either of two new affiliations, the dark side’s Scum and Villainy or the light side’s Smugglers and Spies.
 

Does anyone know the difference between these new ones and the old ones?

They're the same affiliations we have now. This set is just their version of the core set basically.

Yeah, they're not really "new" affiliations.  It will just fully flesh out the Smugglers and Scum affilations so that they're as playable as the other 4.

Also, there are rumors that the next big box will debut the multiplayer version of the game …

I am looking forward to seeing what FFG has thought up for multiplayer rules for SW:LCG. 

I hope that they spent more time on it than they did on the Tourney Tie Breaker rules…   :P

Pretty sure that's the case. They can't exactly sell a product that consists of an empty box.

While I am pretty sure you are being sarcastic just in case and to avoid any confusion for anyone else reading this. No this is wrong.

I think its a possibility, but not on edge of darkness, rather on future expansions related to the new triology, those two will go along side jedi and sith I suppose.

It is still on the boat so will likely not start shipping till next week as it was put on the boat shortly after Assault on Echo Base was and that Force Pack started shipping yesterday. I expect Edge of Darkness to be an early July release with The Battle of Hoth Force pack coming later in the month as it just got put on to the boat yesterday.
