EA’s upcoming video game happens during the time between Episodes VI and VII of the Star Wars movies. A new snippet of Battlefront II’s story mode shows the start of Emperor Palpatine’s posthumous scorched-earth scheme to leave the galaxy in ruins after his death.
The order being given in the clip above is called Operation Cinder, which essentially calls for wreaking havoc on a bunch of planets with artificially altered environmental disasters once Ol’ Evil Wrinkleface meets his demise. Operation Cinder came up as a major plot point in the Marvel Comics miniseries Journey to the Force Awakens: Shattered Empire, along with that freaky floating hologram bot. We’ll see more of lead character Iden Versio’s participation in Palpatine’s final command when Star Wars: Battlefront II comes out on November 17.
