New Star Wars Rogue One Sequel Novel Sets Up Battlefront II’s Single-Player Campaign
EA revealed plenty of new information regarding the sequel to EA DICE’s first Battlefront game this past weekend at Star Wars Celebration Orlando 2017, and one of the most lauded announcements was that the game would have a single-player campaign. The full trailer that was unveiled for the game this weekend heavily placed the spotlight on new character Iden Versio, the commander of the Inferno Squad, a special forces unit working for the Empire. It appears that this character and squadron will be the focus of the Battlefront II single-player campaign, and that the history of these characters before the events of the single-player campaign will be explored in the new Rogue One sequel novel.
The Amazon product listing for the new Rogue One sequel novel, titled Battlefront II: Inferno Squad, acknowledges that this novel’s Inferno Squad is indeed the same special forces unit that will be the focus in Battlefront II’s campaign. The members of Inferno Squad are meant to be seen as the hero figures among the individuals in the Empire, much like how the soldiers in the Rebellion looked up to the likes of Luke Skywalker and Jyn Erso.
The plot of this novel will take place right after the events of Rogue One, as the Inferno Squad is first initiated by the Empire, tasked with the mission of infiltrating and eliminating the remaining members of Saw Gerrera’s Partisans, who continue their leader’s war against the Empire even after his death.
