The game offers an original “Star Wars” storyline with new characters set within the Galactic Civil War of the “Star Wars: Episodes IV” and “VI” movies with players controlling a leader on the front lines.

Those who choose the Rebellion will be able to call upon Han Solo, Chewbacca and Princess Leia to support their missions, while leaders of the evil Imperial forces will command AT-ATs, TIE fighters and Stormtroopers to control the galaxy. In the game, players build and defend a base, deploy armies and vehicles to attack other players and travel to multiple planets to complete missions.
