Plot summaryEdit

Chapter IEdit

Chapter I
MERCENARY DECISION
After the destruction of
the Imperial DEATH STAR,
the war between the Rebel
Alliance and the Galactic
Empire rages on.

In the far reaches of the
Outer Rim, a rugged band
of mercenaries land on the
desert planet of TATOOINE
to establish a new base
of operations...
Heroes Will Assist

Players can side with the Rebellion or the Galactic Empire

The game features a storyline which takes place between the Star Wars episodes A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back. A band of mercenaries has arrived on Tatooine to build a new base of operations. The group is lead by Saponza and his partner. The mercenaries settle in at Saponza's homestead as their new base.[5]

Shortly after settling in, a band of thugs attack the base. After defeating the thugs, the group discovers that they worked for Jabba the Hutt, who has been angered by the defeat.[5]

In search of allies to protect themselves against Jabba, the mercenaries seek out contract jobs for both the Galactic Empire and the Rebel Alliance.[5]

Upon returning from their contract jobs, the mercenaries find their base destroyed by Jabba's forces. In order to get it rebuilt, the mercenaries must fully align with either the Empire or the Rebels.[5]

Chapter 2Edit

Chapter II
PLANETARY MANEUVERS
The Rebels continue to
strike out at the dubious
ambitions of the Galactic
Empire, who march on,
retaliating with seemingly
limitless forces.

AS the conflict escalates,
both factions seek to
gain the upper hand, vying
for strategic positioning
in a treacherous game of
galactic cat and mouse....

After Saponza's partner helped win the battle for Tatooine, the agent was cleared to move his forces to other planets to continue fighting in the war against enemy forces.

DevelopmentEdit

The game was announced on the Tumblr page of its publisher, Disney Interactive, on June 24, 2014. It had a limited release in certain markets,[1] including Australia,[4] followed by a general release on the iOS platform on August 21, 2014 [1] and a subsequent release on the Android and Windows 8 platforms on September 18, 2014. [7] However, the Windows servers and Apple/Android servers are separate from each other, preventing players from interacting across servers.

A "hackathon" was held in mid October 2014 in which developers of the game brainstormed on ideas for new features. The best-in-show winner feature was "faction flipping," a feature that would allow players to create a secondary account that would allow them to play for the side they had not chosen previously, either the Empire or the Rebellion, without having to restart the game, retaining all progress on the current account. The people's choice winner was traps, such as a Sarlacc pit that would swallow troops that came too close.[8]
