    We are 4 months away from the release of EA's highly anticipated game Star Wars: Battlefront II. Many fans are excited for the game after it's been revealed that it will have a story campaign and that the game will include worlds and characters not only from the new movies, but also from the prequel trilogy and the original trilogy. Actress Janina Gavankar, who plays the game's lead character, recently shared a new image from the game showing her crew, known as the Inferno Squad (and possibly a huge spoiler about it). Also making the long wait for the game's release more bearable, the official Star Wars site has just release a new excerpt from Christie Golden's novel Battlefront II: Inferno Squad, which is a prequel to the game and will be released on July 25. Read on for the details.







    Christie Golden's novel Battlefront II: Inferno Squad is set between the events of A New Hope and The Empire Strikes back and follows the Imperial Inferno Squad led by Iden Versio who are tasked to hunt members of Saw Gerrera's Partisans to avenge the destruction of the first Death Star. Here's a new excerpt from the novel via StarWars.com:

    For the full excerpt make sure to go to StarWars.com

    The novel is now available for pre-order. Also don't forget that the novel will be available for purchase at San Diego Comic-Con with its exclusive cover (see the image above) and signed by the author. You can get it at the Del Rey booth (#2913-F). The audiobook version, thanks to some Force-like synchronicity, will be read by actress Janina Gavankar — Iden Versio of Inferno Squad in the game.







    The actress shared a new image on Twitter of a render from the Battlefront II game, featuring her character Iden Versio and the rest of her Inferno Squad crew. Check it out:








    Maybe we're reading too much into it, but it is interesting that there are only three members of the squad pictured in Janina's tweet (Iden, Gideon, and Meeko presumably). Could this be a subtle and perhaps unintentional spoiler regarding the fate of master cryptologist and linguist Seyn Marana, the unpictured 4th member of Inferno Squad? I guess we'll find out in a few weeks when the book hits the shelves.





    We mentioned in the beginning of this article that 4 months seems like a rather long wait for the game. Still, recently EA revealed how you can play the game a whole month earlier. Here's how. From EA:

    Another great excerpt though the squad is a lot smaller than I thought it would be & they all have a different specialty.
    It going to be fun seeng these for very different imperials working together.

    Anyone else amused that Admiral Versio's daughter just happens to be one of the best in the Empire?
