Taking place after Episode VI: Return of the Jedi and before Episode VII: The Force Awakens, it’s your job to join forces with other rebels and fight against what’s left of the Empire, following Emperor Palpatine’s demise. You’ll need to build up your team of heroes by developing new skills and going on dangerous missions in sector-wide battles. At the start, you can choose to play as a human, Twi’lek, Mirialan or Zabrak. Each character is customizable, and you’ll earn more skills and weapons the more missions you complete.
Here are just a few of the game’s features, according to the video game developer:
- Create the Hero the Galaxy Needs – Choose from a wide range of special skills, species, visual customizations and classic Star Wars gear to become the next Han Solo, Boba Fett or unique hero of your own design.
- Shape the Future of the Game Universe – Join players worldwide in massive sector-wide battles to dictate the expansion of in-game content, including new planets, exclusive gear and unique crew members.
- Real-Time Co-op Against the Empire – Explore the secrets of the sector, build a powerful crew with allies, and play alongside friends in synchronous cooperative play.
- Brave Challenges on Classic and New Worlds – Battle your way through missions on Hoth, Cloud City and more, fighting against powerful bosses led by an ominous new adversary.
