Star Wars Battlefront: Renegade Squadron, the next instalment of the best-selling Star Wars Battlefront series of videogames, is now available at retail stores in Australia, LucasArts and Activision announced today.
Developed exclusively for the PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system by U.K.-based Rebellion, Star Wars Battlefront: Renegade Squadron continues the immensely successful Battlefront series, which has sold more than 10 million copies worldwide since its introduction in 2004.
The only new Star Wars Battlefront experience of 2007, Renegade Squadron delivers a new way for players to experience their favourite Star Wars battles any way ? and anywhere ? they want. The game presents new battles and missions found through a never-before-told story, as well as an unprecedented wealth of personalisation and customisation options. And for the first time on the PSP system, Star Wars Battlefront players can team up or compete online with friends all over the world.
Star Wars Battlefront: Renegade Squadron is the previously untold story of a ragtag ensemble of battle-hardened rogues and scoundrels assembled by Han Solo. Gathered to execute some of the most secretive operations in the Rebel Alliance?s war against the Galactic Empire, the Renegade Squadron participates in battles spanning the galaxy. From the frozen base on Hoth to a dogfight in space through the remains of Alderaan, Solo directs the team on missions of sabotage, rescue and retrieval.
In Star Wars Battlefront: Renegade Squadron, robust customisation options replace the class system seen in previous Star Wars Battlefront titles, allowing for millions of possible unique combatants. With weapons, equipment and abilities that players select themselves, no two allies will likely ever look or perform exactly the same.
The game also boasts expanded multiplayer options for the PSP system. Up to 16 players will be able to compete against each other over the Internet and eight via the PSP system?s ad-hoc wireless connection.
