What's coming next?

Recommended Posts

So, let's guess the most likely NEW ships to feature in the game. (no Legends ships here)

REPUBLIC:

SEPARATISTS:

SCUM

EMPIRE:

  • TIE/rb heavy starfighter "Tie Brute" (hopefully with front/rear arc and some kind of calculate mechanic - because of the droid brain)
  • LAAT/le gunship (not exactly essential, but an interesting addition for the Imperials)

REBELS:

  • ?

RESISTANCE:

FIRST ORDER:

EDIT: two down!

To be honest... I’ve kind of got all the ones I really wanted. The grown up TIE fighter fan boy would like the Avenger, Stormtrooper Transport, Assault Shuttle and so forth. Never liked Uglies, bored of TIE variants (except above), prequels don’t interest me (though if you enjoy that period more power to you! Different strokes etc.).

 

I would much prefer Epic got its re release before new ships appear.

Fireball and maybe other "racing" ships from the Resistance series

Based on the description you linked to... Ship ability: "The first time you are dealt a damage card, instead look through your damage deck for a 'Console Fire' and deal that card to this ship, then shuffle your damage deck." Eh?

SCUM

Noooooooo, not Uglies (I haven't seen anything from that show so maybe, Idk, but still): Clone Wars has plenty of lovable Scummy characters that I'm sure they'll release ❤️

Only a matter of time before the tie heavy arrives, and I want it.

also there are a few of those CIS ships I would like to see and would be surprised if we don’t.  Sheathpede, HMP and tri fighter will be coming over the next 9-18 months I expect.

First Order might see a Xi-class light shuttle

Can’t believe I never thought of that ship.  It’d be a great addition for the FO as a cheaper crew carrier and could be the first medium base for the FO. 😀

Personally, I'm still holding out hope for Experimental TIEs and control ships.

SCUM

  •  Pirate "ugly" starfighters from the Resistance series
  • Pirate "ugly" shuttle from the Resistance series

Like both of these but I'm really hoping for the shuttle as a generic non-limited coordinate platform.

RESISTANCE:

Given your list and the canon appearances, it's not beyond the realm of possibility to see the Xi-class shuttle as a Resistance ship, given that it was stolen and taken to Crait by Rose and Finn.  I really wouldn't like to see the Fireball show up for a while - I'd rather some of the other aces' ships (especially since there's really only Poe as a Resistance High-Ini ace in the current game).  I think what would be really awesome is a "Colossus Aces" squadron pack with Tora Doza's and Hype Fazon's ships, with Kas in the Fireball.  If you're following Resistance, the Fireball's a piece of junk that never works right.  Not ideal for a "fast-paced game of tactical starship combat" ;)

It's popped up a number of times in other threads, so I thought I'd add it here - The "Twilight" for Republic would be a likely candidate, given that the Separatists have already gotten a large-base ship in the Sith Infiltrator.  In addition, I would add the Naboo Royal Starship here (J-type 327 Nubian Transport) as a highly likely Republic ship to appear somewhere in the next few waves - high agility and speed, and a little tanky, but low attack - this would most likely be a Padme Amidala crew carrier, and we'd get pilots like Captain Typho.  It would fill the U-Wing support slot nicely.  The rest of these look like spot-on potentials.

SEPARATISTS:

Given that the Seppies are shaping up to be a high-density swarming faction, I think we're most likely to see alternative droid ships like the Tri-fighter before we'll see the independent starfighters like the Geonosian fighters or droid gunship on the playmats.  I would predict that the Rogue-class starfighter is more likely to be Scum than Separatist, since Cad Bane is most frequently shown using it.  I think the Sheathipede is possible, but not imminent, especially since it is already a Rebel ship and is more likely to be re-released first.

To be consistent with my earlier comments, I would probably predict as potential "New" for Scum:

   Rogue-class starfighter

   Corona-class armed frigate/Flarestar-class attack shuttle (Hondo's flying saucers)

   Gauntlet-class starfighter (Maul's superFang the Nightbrother) - This one appears in both Clone Wars and Rebels, so it's higher on the list of potentials, I think.  Plus, we already have Maul crew for Scum; why not a pilot?  Scum needs more Force- using pilots, and Maul would be a good one.

Possibly a pirate "ugly", but they haven't appeared enough yet. 

I can't see a Jango's Slave I release in the near future, since the Firespray was already re-released for 2.0.  It's possible, since it did have a different paint scheme, but unlikely, in my opinion.

If we're getting print media ships, I'm oblivious - I have no idea what ships have appeared in comics or novels.

I'd add Sana Starros's Volt Cobra to the scum list. 

I'd also add Anakin's spice freighter, the Twilight, to the Republic list.

For Separatists, the Mankvim-814 Interceptor from the techno union could make an appearance.

For Scum:

HH-87 Starhopper, used by Zygerrians and Hutts.

Flarestar-class attack shuttle, aka Hondo's flying saucer Jr.

Rogue-class doesn't fit Scum at all, it's a CIS fighter, Cad Bane had one, but he IIRC he got it from Sidious, to help with a job. In fact Bane has very close ties to the seppies, to the point of commanding frigates from time to time, and could be a Separatist ace.

I can't say im particularly excited about all those new releases. Out of that list I personally am only really fussed about the Tie Brute but hopefully it comes with a focus too. Also the Republic gunship is just all sorts of awesome. 

Everything else is just meh or super derivative like the FO red interceptor.. zzz boring!

Based on the Hyperspace kits, we are getting Tie Advanced Prototype and the Ghost the Imperials and Rebels.

I also guess:

Scum - Large ship re-releade

Resistance - Large ship re-release

FO - Red interceptor from the tv show

Republic - Large ship

CIS - Medium ship

Leaving aside this nonsense about Jango being a seppie, I think TCW is the most likely source for lots of new Scum ships.  Although maybe there weren't many of the right size?

J-type 327 Nubian Transport

That would be a huge ship, it is twice as long as a YT-1300 (or VCX-100, or VT-49)! I would love to see it, but it won't show up as a large...

Maybe the J-type Star Skiff (https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/J-type_star_skiff) : shorter and with weaponry, but still as wide as a VCX-100. That I can see have a place in standard X-wing.

Use it to herald the reboot of Epic.

It would certainly be a badass Scum "fighting" epic ship. But the 1st ed. Epic movement doesn't fit very well for it.

Am I too far off if I expect the huge ship maneuver system to be changed? I could be wrong and they'll keep it the same, but I expect them to bring it more inline with how the rest of X-Wing performs maneuvers. It'll be met with allot of players ranting about "crap dials" while they ignore the effect that base size has on the maneuvers.

The plastic range and movement templates they just announced might indicate some change with the Epic movement. And I woul love that.
