Fantasy Flight Opens up X-Wing Mission Control

mission control screenFantasy Flight allows anyone to recreate the dramatic space battles in Star Wars with their X-Wing miniatures game. You’re able to control squads of Rebel or Imperial ships and the game allows for tons of customization and a wide range of options.

That individual customization is now going community wide with the announced beta release of X-Wing Mission Control. The free online community resource allows individuals to design and share their own missions for X-Wing.

Coordinate a daring assault run along the Death Star trench, confront the Rebel fleet outside of Endor, or dodge asteroids in pursuit of the Millennium Falcon. X-Wing Mission Control’s custom editor allows you to easily create any play scenario you can imagine, whether it’s drawn from the Star Wars trilogy or completely unique.

Simply select the size of your play area and define the ships you wish to permit. You can create mission-specific squad-building rules, or you can identify any number of specific ships and upgrades. If you use Mission Control to track your collection, it will even identify any mission components not included in your X-Wing collection.

After you’ve created your scenario you’re able to share it with others by publishing them to the site. Other individuals are then able to download the missions, play them, and then vote for their favorites.

The center is in beta, and does not work on mobile devices. It is compatible with Safari, Chrome, and Firefox, and Fantasy Flight is looking for feedback, including technical issues via their forums.
