Battlefront II: Inferno Squad novel announced
As you're probably aware by now, Battlefront II will introduce Inferno Squad, the Empire’s extraordinary special operations team sent to complete missions that no one else can. The campaign will seemingly center on this new Inferno Squad -- specifically Iden Versio, a young and brave Imperial officer and natural leader. It will follow the Inferno Squad as they journey across the galaxy on a quest to restore order and burn the Rebellion to the ground following the destruction of the Death Star.
But before we get to that, Disney is releasing a novel that will provide a bit of context and background for Iden Versio and the Inferno Squad.
Battlefront II: Inferno Squad is a new novel from Christie Golden. It’s a prequel to the Battlefront II game, set immediately after the events of Rogue One and A New Hope. According to Lucasfilm:
“…the book follows the Empire’s response to the destruction of their vaunted battle station. Determined to thwart all threats, Inferno Squad, featuring some of the best Imperial soldiers, goes on a mission to infiltrate and eliminate the Partisans — the rebel faction once led by the legendary Saw Gerrera.”
Battlefront II: Inferno Squad arrives on July 25th, and is now available for pre-order. Star Wars Battlefront II, meanwhile, is set for release on November 17, 2017.
