PlayStation has released a cutscene from the upcoming video game Star Wars Battlefront II featuring an appearance from Emperor Palpatine.
Star Wars Battlefront II follows Iden Versio (Janina Gavankar), the commander of a group of Imperial special forces known as the Inferno Squad. The story picks up with Inferno Squad reeling in the aftermath of the Battle of Endor after Star Wars: Return of the Jedi and takes us all the way up to The First Order’s debut in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
The cutscene released features Iden alongside her father, Imperial Admiral Garrick Versio as he receives a message to commence Operation: Cinder from Emperor Palpatine via Sentinel droid. Following his death at the Battle of Endor, the Emperor used these messengers to deliver his orders to begin Operation: Cinder which was a contingency plan to destroy both the Empire and its enemies in the event of his death, leading to the Galactica ruler rebuilding itself in the unknown regions of space. You can check out the cutscene below.
