The main factions featured in the game include the Galactic Empire, the Rebel Alliance, the Wookiees, the Gungans, the Royal Naboo, and the Trade Federation. The game will feature a variety of combat units such as bounty hunters, Jedi Knights, stormtroopers, X-Wings, AT-ATs, snowspeeders, and droids.
