Choose a side: Command AT-ATs, TIE fighters and Stormtroopers as the Empire or call on iconic heroes like Han Solo and Princess Leia as part of the Rebellion.

Build and defend a base: Train unique troops specific to each faction, and fortify a base with deflector shields, turrets, heavy artillery, and other defences.

Lead epic battles: Strategically deploy powerful armies, units, and vehicles against enemies and other players around the galaxy.

Travel to multiple planets and complete special missions: Play an all-new story as a valiant leader on the front lines of the Galactic Civil War.

Upgrade a strike team and its defences: Strengthen forces with multiple levels of upgrades for each unit.


The game also includes a storyline set within the Galactic Civil War of Episodes IV – VI. Within the storyline, “commanders” will be able to determine whether the Empire or the Rebellion have the upper hand that will win the war.
