Battlefront II: Darth Vader hires Boba Fett

Published (Updated )

There's a new game in town. In the Rise of the Empire campaign, the "Changing of the Guard" mission takes place 20 years after Kamino in Clones. It is actually led by Boba Fett, whom you get to play as. We're impressed.

Any other instances of Fett beyond getting to play him on some of the single player maps?

What we already know:

Boba Fett on single player maps: Kashyyyk, Utapau, Mygeeto, Felucia, Yavin 4, and Jabba's Palace

Jango Fett on single player maps: Kashyyyk, Felucia, and Yavin 4

Back in October, StarWars.com had some news on this:

Boba Fett Returns to Kamino to Fight Anti-Troopers

"Officially, there never was a 'Clone Rebellion' on Kamino," recalls the beleaguered voice of a retired clone. "Unofficially, approximately twenty years after we were created, a special detachment of the Imperial 501st Legion was dispatched to Kamino, with orders to eradicate an army of clones that had been bred to take arms against the Empire. Our mission commander, an expert on the inner workings of Kamino, was a young bounty hunter named Boba Fett."

When last we saw young Boba, he was holding the empty helmet of his father, destined to become the stand-up-to-Vader bounty hunter we see over twenty years later. What happens in between is the fodder for countless hours of fan imagination.

Taking twisted advantage of the bizarre lineage of the characters involved, this mission makes you the clone son of Jango Fett, leading an army of clones of yourself (basically, since Boba has unaltered Jango DNA) back to the planet where you grew up to wipe out another army of clones of yourself.

And the anti-troopers are the good guys. Confused? Good.

We'll keep a running list here until moving it to the Arcade listing for Battlefront II.

Keep us posted, fans and visitors, if you see anything!
