‘Star Wars Battlefront II’ Adds ‘Arrow’ Star Paul Blackthorne

Star Wars Battlefront II Blackthorne
Paul Blackthorne has joined the cast of Star Wars Battlefront II as Gideon Hask.

The single player campaign follows the Inferno Squad, a group of Imperial special forces soldiers reeling in the aftermath of the Battle of Endor. Based on the trailer, it’s possible the campaign may take us all the way up to Star Wars: The Force Awakens as it teases all eras will be playable.

Character details on Hask are still under wraps but Blackthorne reunites with his former Arrow co-star Janina Gavankar who stars as the commander of the Inferno Squad Iden Versio. EA made the announcement on Twitter after Blackthorne confirmed that he has taken on the mocap duties and provided the voice of Hask who will also look like him in the game.

The single player campaign for Star Wars Battlefront II was co-written by former IGN reporter Mitch Dyer and Walt Williams. You can check out the full details on the games multiplayer experience here.

The Inferno Squad will first be introduced this summer in the new canon novel Inferno Squad which picks up after the Battle of Scarif in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

Star Wars Battlefront II won’t hit game store shelves until November 17, 2017, but you can already pre-order the game for new Kylo Ren and Rey costumes from Star Wars: The Last Jedi plus ability upgrades and more.
