A new Star Wars Battlefront 2 video has the creative team over at Motive Studios and Lucasfilm talk about the game’s story. More specifically – it’s Imperial angle.

The story will cover the 30-year-gap between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens, as seen through the eyes of a loyal Imperial Commander- Iden Versio.

As we covered before, Iden is part of an Imperial special-ops team called Inferno Squad. The team “crisscrosses the galaxy aboard the Imperial Raider Corvus, traveling to where their highly-refined skills are most needed.”

Through the story of Star Wars Battlefront 2, we’ll follow Iden and Inferno Squad from the destruction of the second Death Star as they face some of the New Republic’s most famous heroes, and the dark side’s most sinister agents.

“Another great thing they included was to do it from an Imperial point of view. It hadn’t really been done before, at least not at that fidelity,” Steve Blank, creative executive in Lucasfilm’s story group told the PS Blog.

Watch the video to get a better understanding why Motive wants you to join the ranks of the Empire on November 17, when Star Wars Battlefront 2 comes out for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
