Rally to Release Vader’s Deathly Grip on the Galaxy with Star Wars: Dark Side Rising Game Available Now

Experience the events leading up to the saga of Star Wars: A New Hope with the newest cooperative card and dice game created by Usaopoly (The Op)! The opportunity for fans to go to battle on behalf of the Rebel Alliance and save the galaxy is here with Star Wars: Dark Side Rising!

Available exclusively today to EMEA (European, the Middle Eastern, and African) regions, the eye-catching collaboration with Disney Consumer Products UK now welcomes players from beyond North America to celebrate the suspenseful game mechanic made popular by The Op’s flagship release of 2018, Thanos Rising – Avengers: Infinity War.

Star Wars: Dark Side Rising lets players work together to recruit rebels in a war against the Empire and prevent the construction of their ominous space station, the Death Star. Rebel cells represent four factions (Intelligence, Leadership, Support, or Tactical) and the Bases of their Operations are namesake worlds from the Star Wars universe: Tatooine, Alderaan, Yavin 4, and Lothal. Determined Jedis will take turns in their roles as Cassian Andor, Leia Organa, Luke Skywalker, or Hera Syndulla to deploy their allies against each unpredictable strike.

The allies include the Droids you are looking for—C-3PO and R2-D2—as well as all-knowing Obi-Wan Kenobi and charismatic smuggler Han Solo. With each roll of dice, the strengths of each character are amassed to thwart the Imperials, led by sanctimonious Lord Vader. In order to win, players must defend vulnerable locations throughout the game and take down agents before the construction of the Death Star dominates their once peaceful galaxy.

Unite your heroes today and become a full-fledged Light Side supporter with the help of over 200+ game components and arresting illustrations of all your Star Wars favorites. Engage the Force by asking your favorite game stores in EMEA (European, the Middle Eastern, and African) regions and select distributors for Star Wars: Dark Side Rising!
