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

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:
