Star Wars Battlefront 2's story will show "the people inside the Empire"

20 May 2017, 09:34 | Anna Nguyen

In the new video, entitled "The Story of an Imperial Soldier", Game Director Mark Thompson talks about telling a story from the side of the Empire, specifically from the point of view of an Imperial Soldier, including one of the game's protagonists Iden Version.

DICE worked with Motive Studios, the EA team supporting Visceral Games in developing the other Star Wars game, to bring Battlefront 2's campaign to life.

One of the most important things that you need to do when writing a story is make the audience sympathize with the main characters.

In Syria Military condemns attack by US-led coalition
The US-led coalition has carried out a number of air strikes in recent months that have killed civilians in areas held by Isis . Coalition officials said Russian forces had apparently unsuccessfully tried to dissuade the pro-regime movement south.


Star Wars Battlefront 2 will, unlike the 2015 game, actually have a single player campaign, and this is something that EA and DICE are actually focusing on a lot in the game's marketing. The story picks up with Inferno Squad reeling in the aftermath of the Battle of Endor after Star Wars: Return of the Jedi and takes us all the way up to The First Order's debut in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The Empire, of course, have traditionally served as the bad guys of the Star Wars mythos, and that's a tough perception to turn around.

The trailer reveals a little bit more about Iden Versio, the commander of the Inferno Squadron commando team at the heart of the game. To see every moment that directs and defines the Star Wars canon from an Imperial perspective is really going to force long-time Star Wars fans to approach this universe with an uncomfortable sense of empathy.

Here's the trailer. It's PlayStation branded, but Star Wars Battlefront 2 will also be out on PC in November.
