The new game will be set entirely in the Original Trilogy era (at least at the launch), although settings from other eras may appear. The game does not feature a single-player campaign, but it does offer a series of missions that can be played cooperatively or by oneself. Planets that appear as battlegrounds include Tatooine, Hoth, Endor, Sullust (the frozen/lava environment), and Jakku (the first DLC pack/free preorder bonus). Players can switch between First-Person and Third Person perspectives mid-match, and can also customize their soldiers. The game will come out in late November of this year.

Even in an incomplete state, The Bad Batch was some of the most fun I’ve had watching The Clone Wars, complete with some of the funniest lines in the series. Seeing Rex, Anakin, and four mutated Clone Troopers take on a battle on two fronts is just as awesome as seeing Echo and Admiral Trench return.
SECONDARY ARTICLE: Defining Canon.
The Super-Friends of the Star Wars media brain-trust came together to explain how they’re approaching Disney’s take on the setting.
