As the leaked trailer (which we broke down here) revealed, the game will span all eras of the Star Wars movie canon, including the prequels, sequels and, of course, the original trilogy. That means getting to play as six different factions, from the Republic and Empire to the First Order and Separatists. There’ll be a bounty of heroes to play as too, including new ones like Yoda and Darth Maul, and new worlds and environments to battle in.
The story mode to the game will be based around the ‘untold story of Iden Versio, an elite Stormtrooper’ in charge of an Imperial unit named Inferno Squad. The narrative will be a Star Wars canon story, and will follow the character’s journey beginning from the final moments of Return of the Jedi when the Death Star II is destroyed, into the 30-year gap to The Force Awakens, connecting the original trilogy to the sequel trilogy.
