Battlefront II: Darth Vader hires Boba Fett

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!

    I was dissapointed when it came to accuracy for Boba and Jango Fett's guns. I guess we can't have it all!

  2. Steven Green says:

    Yeah, you can play as him on Kashyyk also I think...

    Takemetoyourfett - I couldnt aggree more. Boba's gun was ok, but jangos westar blasters??? They dont even exist in the game. But at least we got the jetpack =)

    Another thing also, why shoot fire from a gun instead of your wrist gauntlets, and also, when you fire your rocket, it SHOULD come from the backpack. IMHO

    Select Instant Action mode, then choose Mos Eisley as your level and Assault as the game type. When you begin the game you can pick between heroes and villains and fight as any of the "Hero" type character classes with no time limit.

    I found a way to play as Jango or Boba forever.Go to Mos Eisley in Assualt Mode.You'll be able to play as heroes or villains for an unlimited time.If you choose villians you can play as Boba or Jango along with other villians.
