The game is likely to please everyone with the inclusion of everyone’s favourite hero/villain. Some characters we are excited for are listed below. (SPOILERS AHEAD FOR EPISODE 9)

Ben Solo: As seen in the last film, Kylo Ren finds the good
in himself and fights against The Emperor. We hope to get hold of this
character and fight alongside Rey with Leia’s lightsaber!

General Grievous: Grievous is probably the most recognisable character from the prequel series. With enhanced cybernetics and 4 arms, he was A LOT of fun to play within the previous games.

We got our first look at the game at E3 back in 2019. It was confirmed that there would be expansive open worlds that can be navigated through a ‘Galaxy Map’. Similar to the one in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.
