Star Wars: Battlefront 2 Story Scene Details The Emperor's Final Plan To Crush The Rebellion

EA's upcoming video game happens during the time between Episodes VI and VII of the Star Wars movies. A new snippet of Battlefront 2's story mode shows the start of Emperor Palpatine's posthumous scorched-earth scheme to leave the galaxy in ruins after his death.

The order being given in the clip above is called Operation Cinder, which essentially calls for wreaking havoc on a bunch of planets with artificially altered environmental disasters once Ol' Evil Wrinkleface meets his demise. Operation Cinder came up as a major plot point in the Marvel Comics miniseries Journey to the Force Awakens: Shattered Empire, along with that freaky floating hologram bot. We'll see more of lead character Iden Versio's participation in Palpatine's final command when Star Wars Battlefront 2 comes out on November 17.


    Story is 2-3 hours in length. It's meant to act as a playable movie to expand on the lore. Prepare to be disappointed if you wanted a decent length campaign.

    I can't wait to see someone pull of a Sentinel (messenger of the emporer) droid cosplay with an actual working dome helmet.
