The X-Wing™ System Open Series

Take Part in the Biggest X-Wing™ Event To Date!

IMAGINE: You strap yourself into the cockpit of your X-wing. As you turn to exit the hangar bay, klaxons blare and a series of red and blue lights pulse their warnings. "Imperial fighters in sector 48!" Your heart is racing. Then you get the signal from the flight crew. You hit the thruster, and you're chasing your wingmates through the clouds and into the starry darkness of space. For one second, it's the way you always felt flying should be. But then you see the activity on your scanners. And then the ships—hundreds of them, maybe even thousands. You open fire. Your squadmates open fire. The enemy opens fire. And everything erupts into streaks of light and explosions…

This spring, join us for the biggest and most exciting X-Wing event to date!

Running from March 31st through June, the X-Wing System Open Series is your chance to charge full-throttle into the year's most exciting Star Wars dogfights. Eight events. Eight nations. Many starships will fall. Eight aces will emerge as champions. And those champions will win transportation, hotel accommodation, and entry to the eight-player Coruscant Invitational taking place within the sold-out 2016 Star Wars Celebration in London, England!

Fly with the Aces

Each event in the X-Wing System Open Series culminates in an unparalleled test of X-Wing skill—a massive tournament open to all comers and spread out over the course of two or three days. Eight tournaments in eight regions will yield eight aces. And each of these eight tournament champions will qualify for a unique Star Wars and X-Wing experience.

Each Open champion will receive a ticket to the sold-out 2016 Star Wars Celebration in London, England, and entry to the exclusive, eight-player Coruscant Invitational. In this final event, no one can rely upon just one squadron. Instead, the aces will need to demonstrate their ability to fly squadrons from all three of the game's factions.

In the end, this one-of-a-kind X-Wing tournament will provide a uniquely rounded champion, and that champion's legacy will become one with the game!
