Asmodee and Atomic Mass Games have announced Star Wars: Shatterpoint, a new miniatures game with a focus on skirmishes. The Shatterpoint Game is scheduled to be released in June 2023, with pre-orders scheduled to start at the beginning of the year.
Atomic Mass Games, Asmodee's in-house miniatures studio, is adding another Star Wars board game to the catalogue. This time it's all about fast-paced action with well-known and popular characters on the battlefield.

In Star Wars: Shatterpoint, fans build an attack team and steer the fortunes of the battles with them. According to the publisher, you will be able to fall back on legendary Star Wars characters and battle scenes. In a short teaser, Atomic Mass Games already shows some of the available characters, including Darth Maul, General Grievous, Ahsoka, Anakin Skywalker and Obi Wan Kenobi. The selection of Jedi, Sith and other foot troops seems to be large.
From the available units you will build up personal combat squads. The miniatures are also suitable for hobbyists and painters, as you know it from Star Wars: Legion - or better in this case Marvel Crisis: Protocol. According to product manager Will Shick, the style of the game is also based on the comics from the eighties and nineties. Without you want to appeal to both board game fans and newcomers with the game - fast, rather uncomplicated tactical fights are therefore the focus.
Before the first blaster shot is fired, a squad must be assembled. The Star Wars: Shatterpoint Game invites players to experiment. You can create thematically appropriate combinations of combat troops, such as Lord Maul and his super commands, but you can also go your own creative way to set up a unit that is as powerful as possible. As a direct result, the heroes and villains will probably each have different and unique abilities and efficient synergies can be used. The aim of each game is to complete a specified mission.
"The design and development of the miniature game Star Wars: Shatterpoint is our love letter to the excitement and energy of being a kid on a Saturday morning," said Will Shick. According to Shick, the focus is on action, adventure and the iconic characters. He is enthusiastic about the creative work of the team and the cooperation with Lucasfilms.
Star Wars: Shatterpoint is developed by Atomic Mass Games in association with Lucasfilm and published by Asmodee.
The new Star Wars miniature game is scheduled to be released in the summer, and fans will probably be able to pre-order the title from January.
