If you are excited for EA and DICE’s Star Wars Battlefront and are a fan of reading, then you’ll be glad to know the hotly anticipated shooter will be receiving a novel tie-in later this year.
Star Wars Battlefront: Twilight Company will release on November 3rd, 2015 and is being written by Alexander Freed. No stranger to Star Wars, Freed’s past work includes Star Wars: The Old Republic, Blood of the Empire and Star Wars: The Old Republic, The Lost Suns, a series of web comics that tied-in to the 2011 Star Wars: The Old Republic video game.
The novel will be published by Del Rey books and considered canon. The official description is below, courtesy of the star wars wiki:
The Galactic Empire endures. Despite the destruction of its terrifying Death Star by the Rebel Alliance, its oppression spreads undiminished across the stars.
Under the direction of the Emperor and Darth Vader, an army of highly trained, single-minded stormtroopers quashes dissent and destroys resistance.
But on worlds like Sullust, Coyerti, Haidoral Prime, and untold others, Rebel forces fight in the trenches, determined to maintain hope against the unrelenting Imperial war machine…
Star Wars Battlefront will release on November 17, 2015 for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
