The untold story.
Star Wars Battlefront II’s reveal was met with great fanfare and early positive reception, thanks mostly to the fact that other than improving on its predecessor’s already solid multiplayer base, it’s also seemingly pulling no punches when it comes to the single play campaign, telling an ambitious, and what looks to be an intriguing story. What’s more, it’s all going to be Star Wars canon!
EA and DICE have now revealed some new info on the game. More specifically, it is about the Inferno Squad, an “imperial spec ops team”, who we will be playing as. The squad seems like an elite team of super-agents. Supposedly, they are “trained as both deadly starfighter pilots and elite commandos.”
“Deeply committed to the rule of law, Inferno Squad is an Imperial shield against the chaotic threat represented by the Rebel Alliance,” reads on a post on EA’s official site. “Fearless in the face of sedition, they strike unseen and then fade back into the darkness of deep space. As the story of Star Wars Battlefront II opens, you’ll accompany them on a journey though the Empire’s final, desperate hour.”
“Inferno Squad crisscrosses the galaxy aboard the Imperial Raider Corvus, traveling to where their highly-refined skills are most needed,” the post continues. “Through the story of Star Wars Battlefront II, their exploits will bring them face to face with some of the New Republic’s most famous heroes… and also with some of the dark side’s most sinister agents.
“With control of most star systems slipping through the Empire’s dying grasp, Inferno Squad struggles to fulfill the special orders that the Emperor left behind, and in the process must make difficult choices in the face of challenges they’ve never imagined. Even as the remains of the Death Star II floated into space, they believed in the Empire.”
That definitely sounds interesting, especially for all the Empire and Dark Side-loving Star Wars fanatics (like myself) out there.
