Welcome back, Rebelscum! There have been many installments in the Battlefront franchise since the original by Pandemic Studios debuted in 2004, but none have offered a narrative story based campaign. Battlefront has always focused on action and fast paced missions, but with Battlefront II we finally have a story to play through.
The campaign is set between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens, and follows a new character, Iden Versio, the commander of the Imperial Inferno Squad. Throughout the course of the game, Iden Versio defects to the New Republic. The story begins with the Battle of Endor and goes up to the Battle of Jakku. There's also an additional mini campaign that leads up to the events of The Last Jedi.
