Star Wars Battlefront


 

Star Wars Battlefront II‘s campaign will introduce a whole new anti-hero to the Star Wars canon in Iden Versio, an Imperial commander of the elite special ops Inferno Squad. But apparently she’s not only playable in the single-player campaign: according to a recent tweet from EA, Versio will also be a playable hero in Battlefront II‘s various multiplayer modes.

A trailer accompanying the Tweet shows off Versio’s arsenal of special abilities, and they look pretty badass. Her main weapon seems to fire both normal lasers and an explosive projectile, while her special abilities include the familiar pulse cannon from the first Battlefront, a personal bubble shield, and a stun droid which will home in on enemy players from a decent range and shock them to death.

In addition to the weaponry, the trailer also seems to show off one of Versio’s alternate outfits, trading in the now-recognizable black Inferno Squad stormtrooper armor for a white variant.

The new single-player campaign is perhaps the biggest addition to Star Wars Battlefront II (besides free seasons of DLC and possible pay-to-win mechanics). Taking place between Return of the Jedi and The Force AwakensBattlefront II‘s campaign finds the Empire adrift after the destruction of the second Death Star and the death of the Emperor. Following these devastating events, Versio is tasked by her father, Admiral Versio, and the Emperor’s holographic face trapped in a fish bowl wearing a cape to perform a mysterious protocol known only as Operation Cinder.

We’ll have more coverage on the game’s single-player campaign next week, but suffice it to say that putting Versio on par with the likes of Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, and Boba Fett in the game’s multiplayer hints at how serious an addition she is to the overall Star Wars saga.

Star Wars Battlefront II is launching for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on November 17th, though players who pre-order the deluxe edition or have a membership to EA/Origin Access will be able to play the game a few days earlier.
