According to EA, Star Wars Battlefront II’s story campaign will center around an elite unit of Imperial special forces agents called Inferno Squad, with players stepping into the boots of Inferno Squad’s leader Iden Versio, portrayed by actress Janina Gavankar (Sleepy Hollow, The League, True Blood). As for the multiplayer component, it will allow players to fight both on foot as Imperial and Rebel troopers and in space using a variety of vehicles, and some of the playable heroes and villains players will get to control include Yoda, Rey, Darth Maul, Luke Skywalker, Kylo Ren, and more.
Those who pre-order Star Wars Battlefront II will receive a variety of exclusive bonuses including special outfits for Rey and Kylo Ren which are based off their looks in the upcoming film Star Wars: The Last Jedi. There’s also an Elite Trooper Deluxe Edition of the game which grants access to additional bonuses, including three days of early access to the full game.
