Since the game was unveiled earlier this year, we’ve known Star Wars Battlefront II will feature a full single-player campaign which tells the story of Inferno Squad, the Empire’s top special forces unit. That said, aside from its leader Iden Versio, information on the shadowy unit has been rather scarce. Well, it looks like the Squad is about to step out of the shadows.
Star Wars Battlefront II lead actress Janina Gavankar (True Blood, Halo 5: Guardians) recently shared this image of her character Iden Versio, along with the rest of the Inferno Squad. Check it out, below:
Definitely wouldn’t want to get in this Squad’s way! As Gavankar’s tagging indicates, she’s backed up by Paul Blackthorne (Arrow), who plays a character named Gideon Hask, and TJ Ramini (24, Prison Break) as Del Meeko. We also get another glimpse at the Squad’s Imperial droid, which you can upgrade and customize throughout Battlefront II’s campaign.
Star Wars Battlefront II bridges the gap between Return of the Jedi and Star Wars: The Force Awakens from the perspective of the Dark Side. Following the destruction of the second Death Star, Inferno Squad is tasked with carrying out Operation Cinder, a plan to take down the Rebel Alliance in the event of the Emperor’s death. Inferno Squad’s story will span decades, bringing them into contact with numerous established Star Wars characters.
We’ll learn more about Star Wars Battlefront II and Inferno Squad later today, as this year’s D23 convention plays host to Level Up! The Walt Disney Company’s Video Game Showcase. Gavankar has already teased she’ll be part of the livestream, which kicks off at 1pm PT.
