“Stand-by alert. Death Star approaching. Estimated time to firing range, fifteen minutes.”
    –Star Wars: A New Hope

Inspired by the dramatic space battles of the original Star Wars trilogy, X-Wing allows players to wage fast-paced, squad-based dogfights between Rebel and Imperial starfighters. Flexible squad-building rules allow tremendous potential for customization; even with just a few ships, you hold a wide range of options with the game’s many pilots and upgrades.

Now, your X-Wing experience becomes even more personalized and customizable with the release of X-Wing Mission Control!

X-Wing Mission Control is a free online resource that allows you to design and share new X-Wing missions.

X-Wing missions with Mission Control!

Recreate Famous Battles or Imagine Your Own!

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.

Furthermore, Mission Control’s custom editor easily allows you to select components from all available X-Wing products. Will you try to break through the Imperial blockade with your GR-75 medium transport? Will you invent a mission to hunt down a powerful Imperial prototype starfighter? Shifting your focus from harrowing dogfights to large, tactical battles is as simple as dragging a ship to the map or removing it.
