SW Galaxies TCG: The Shadow Syndicate

Posted By Mike on September 22, 2009



Well, we had the press release announcing the Star Wars Galaxies: The Shadow Syndicate expansion, and now you can see below for the release announcing it's...release.




Shed Light on Heroism and Villainy in Star Wars Galaxies™ Trading Card Game Expansion: The Shadow Syndicate




Vehicles and Smuggling Race Out of the Gate with All-new Gameplay, Loot Cards


SAN FRANCISCO — September 22, 2009 — Under the guise of swoop races, Dash Rendar has been secretly supplying the Rebel forces with precious cargo and materials. But, the sinister Prince Xizor has taken notice of Rendar’s illicit activities and extends his powerful reach not only to eliminate Rendar, but to also acquire any Rebel prizes for himself. Experience the struggle between the two iconic Star Wars™ characters with today’s release of The Shadow Syndicate, the fourth expansion to the successful Star Wars Galaxies™ Trading Card Game from LucasArts and Sony Online Entertainment LLC (SOE). The Shadow Syndicate brings the exciting ability to boost your light and dark side deck with all-new vehicle-based cards and 10 new Shadows of the Empire story-arc scenarios.

The Shadow Syndicate adds more than 200 new playable cards and more than 20 new loot cards to the Star Wars Galaxies Trading Card Game, bringing the total number of cards in the game to more than 1,400. The new playable cards will feature for the first time ever vehicle units that allow you to:

Grant additional movement bonuses to deliver units to battle quicker
Move multiple units at once
Redeploy units from one quest to another to either save potentially doomed units or reinforce others
Automatically bring a bonus avatar attack into play

In addition, this expansion introduces new cards to the Star Wars Galaxies Trading Card Game, including:

Expertise Trait Cards – Rouse additional support with Expertise cards! Unit cards with the new Expertise trait, such as the Leia Organa card, increase combat stats over time and allow players to acquire other benefits as they reach certain thresholds in their stats.

New Loot Cards – More than 20 new loot cards will be available, including Starship Hangar, the Air-2 Racing swoop and the ability to combine several loot items and create the awesome AT-AT house. Loot cards can be redeemed with an active account in good standing in the Star Wars Galaxies™ MMO.

The Star Wars Galaxies Trading Card Game marks the first ever Star Wars trading card game offered exclusively online. Available to both current and former Star Wars Galaxies subscribers*, the Star Wars Galaxies Trading Card Game provides players an entirely new gameplay experience by combining the challenge of a trading card game with the adventures and community of the massively multiplayer online game. Players can build their own virtual decks to fight in the story mode, and participate in epic one-on-one matches, cooperative heroic encounters and official tournaments.

In addition, all Star Wars Galaxies subscribers with current, valid, paid accounts in good standing are eligible to automatically receive five digital trading card booster packs each month included with their paid Star Wars Galaxies subscription at no additional cost, providing a simple way to quickly and easily build their decks.
