Was checking to see if AH LCG had a release update and this showed up. OOPS!!!! It's fixed now, but it was there!

Sure hope not.
Already invested time and money into third and will not be changing.

All I can see is "Imperium" centered on the screen. It could be a new game in the universe like an LCG or something.

In all seriousness if they just make it a full game with all the expansions and errata in it, and it fits in one box, I will throw down my life savings!

ok this looks to good to be a fake, if you have taken the time to make this up so close to gencon then 'f&ck you and the horse you rode in on' however I think this looks good the art-work is nothing I can recognise from any past editions so unless you have take extreme measures to create a hoax then I am going to say looks like FFG have had a little IT issue and someone is going to get fired for blowing the big gencon announcement.

So props for the quick thinking/screen dump.

OH and FFG - TAKE MY MONEY!!!!

I'll believe it when I see it from FFG. Even a screw up of a few min should have a couple of sightings.

I was thinking about buying 3rd edition about six months ago and decided that I had plenty of games to play for the time being and they were sure to release a new edition soon. I'm now glad I waited. :)

I'm not a "fan" of this game,I don't really care if there is a new one. It would be a weird fake to make, for what purpose?

Just thought I'd share my accidental surprise since I know so many people love this game.

Star Wars retheme would be horrific. Star Wars is all about duality. I like the TI3 universe. Not everything needs to be Star Wars.

Did you just assume a 4th Edition?



Dear God my hopes are now officially in the up position. Despite all that I have invested in TI3, I would buy this in a heartbeat.

This is entirely likely. Artwork in background seems new, though I'd have thought they give a visual update to the logo.

Id really hope for Forbidden Stars to have a strong influence in the new edition. But at the same time I don't think it's going to be anything close to the epicness of 3rd edition in scope and size.

I wonder if it's related to what Man Vs Meeple will be showing off this Wednesday. They said they had an unannounced game which they will be covering that will be "HUGE". Seems like FFG is certainly preparing their website for the announce at this point, so not too much longer!

Looks like it could be that! It might also be a different game though, didn't FFG announce Fallout after that video?

It could be anything, so it's pure wild speculation!

They said 14 hours ago in the youtube comments that they believe we won't know about this until next Wednesday at Noon (I'm assuming Eastern time). I'd assume if it was Fallout, which was announced when they made that comment, that they would have said so.

Neither Man vs Meeple nor GameBoyGeek seem like the kind that would hype up Twilight-Imperium kind-of epic. Both would, however, be hyped for Fallout.

In either case, both would be good candidates in general. I am glad that Fantasy Flight keeps up their pre-Gen-Con announcement hype though, even as they are now under Asmodee. Great to see Asmodee keep supporting the 'brand'.

It would surprise me if Fourth Edition is not a heavily gutted version though. I don't think we'll see an epic in the scope of 3rd Edition ever again (which likely will keep this in my collection).

Time for some speculation!

Theory #1: It's a Forbidden Stars re-theme. I hope this is not true, but it's a possibility what with FFG splitting from Games Workshop.

Theory #2: It's an streamlined Twilight Imperium for 2-5 players. My reason for only 5 is that the Sardaak N'orr aren't in that picture, and the pictures not rectangular, it's more square. Again, I hope not, because I want all the races!

Just my 2 theoretical cents!

I don't think that this will be a forbidden stars retheme. They would call it something different, like they did with Rex:Final Days of an Empire. The mechanics are too different.

I think this will be TI3 with a lot of streamlining, including better minis.
