UPDATE! Is This the First Line from The Force Awakens Opening Crawl?
Back in 2012, Fantasy Flight Games released the X-Wing Miniatures Game – a tactical ship-to-ship combat game where the players are able to control starships, and face them against each other in fast-paced space combat. Now it appears that the company will be releasing a special The Force Awakens edition of the game, which synopsis may very well show us the first line from the movie’s opening crawl.
One of our readers sent us several photos of the new game. The game is identical with the original, but is using elements from The Force Awakens. For example the new miniatures are the blue Resistance X-Wing and two First Order TIE Fighters with the white wings. Also you have BB-8 as a companion and so on.
But the most interesting thing about the new edition is the synopsis found on the back of the box:
It’s a time of uncertainty. Unrest grips the galaxy as the influence of
the First Order spreads, but a glimmer of hope remains in the heroic
forces of the Resistance. As they struggle against the dark might of
the enemy, these brave heroes may yet awaken the skill and strength
needed to forge a new future…
As you can see, this very well can be an official vague synopsis for The Force Awakens as well. Or even better. This text could actually reveal the first line from the opening crawl that will appear on the big screen this December.
In their original game, released back in 2012, Fantasy Flight Games used for the synopsis of the game, the first line from the opening crawl of A New Hope – “It is a period of civil war”. The rest of the text was different. So if this is the case again, then here’s your first look at the opening crawl of The Force Awakens! 🙂
It definitely has the Star Wars vibe in it. And Just for fun, you can make your own crawl with the new line HERE.
The game will probably be released on Force Friday and with respect to the company we won’t post the photos and spoil the fun. You just have to wait 2 more weeks. 🙂
Special thanks to ArynCrinn for the heads up.
