The Star Wars Battlefront II
multiplayer beta has come and gone. EA is now looking to generate some excitement for the single player campaign of their upcoming sci-fi shooter with a trailer and some details regarding the story. You will be playing as Imperial Commander Iden Versio during the events that transpire just before and after the ending of the Return of the Jedi
Iden's tale is one that involves political motivation, military precision, loyalty, and betrayal. Iden and the other agents in the Inferno Squad represent and embody a devotion to the Empire for which many Imperials strive. Playing through Iden's experiences will serve as a way to humanise the Empire in a world where Imperials are often seen as inherently evil.
Gameplay-wise, Iden has various forms of Imperial weaponry and skills including a Tactical Shock, a Scan, rechargeable Impact Grenade, and a Pulse Cannon. It should come as no surprise that you will also be piloting a TIE fighter in dogfights against Rebel forces. Check out the trailer below to get a glimpse of what the game's story mode has in store.
You'll be able to fight alongside the Inferno Squad as Commander Versio when Star Wars Battlefront II
launches on November 17th.
