The Star Wars: Edge of the Empire Beta, also referred to as the Star Wars: Edge of the Empire Beta Playtest, is a limited-edition softcover rulebook published by Fantasy Flight Games as the first installment of the Star Wars: Edge of the Empire roleplaying game. It was first available on August 17, 2012 through the Fantasy Flight Games website. Copies were additionally made available at Gen Con 2012 and at Celebration VI.

The Beta included five full-color character sheets as part of the promotional Star Wars: Edge of the Empire Beta Retailer Kit.[3]

DevelopmentEdit

Behind the scenes Sterling Hershey, one of the Beta developers, contributed by writing "the Game Master chapter, the Beta test adventure, and some others [sections] that were not included in the Beta."[1]

Much of the art and in-universe information present in the final product was removed in the beta to simplify the playtesting experience.[4] Likewise, some elements that appear in the beta are not present or were modified in the final Star Wars: Edge of the Empire Core Rulebook (i.e. the Mobquet MB-C1 medium transport was removed, and the Personnel carrier has many differences).
