There is a new novel coming out on November 3rd that will tie into the upcoming video game release, Star Wars Battlefront: Twilight Company. This new novel ties into the EA and Dice video game, Star Wars Battlefront, and the novel focuses on a group of rebels that are fighting during the Galactic War.
Among the stars and across the vast expanses of space, the Galactic Civil War rages. On the battlefields of multiple worlds in the Mid Rim, legions of ruthless stormtroopers—bent on crushing resistance to the Empire wherever it arises—are waging close and brutal combat against an armada of freedom fighters. In the streets and alleys of ravaged cities, the front-line forces of the Rebel Alliance are taking the fight to the enemy, pushing deeper into Imperial territory and grappling with the savage flesh-and-blood realities of war on the ground.
Leading the charge are the soldiers—men and women, human and nonhuman—of the sixty-first mobile infantry, better known as Twilight Company. Hard-bitten, war-weary, and ferociously loyal to one another, the members of this renegade outfit doggedly survive where others perish, and defiance is their most powerful weapon against the deadliest odds. When orders come down for the Rebels to fall back in the face of superior opposition numbers and firepower, Twilight reluctantly complies. Then an unlikely ally radically changes the strategic equation—and gives the Alliance’s hardest-fighting warriors a crucial chance to turn retreat into resurgence.
Orders or not, alone and outgunned but unbowed, Twilight Company locks, loads, and prepares to make its boldest maneuver—trading down-and-dirty battle in the trenches for a game-changing strike at the ultimate target: the very heart of the Empire’s military machine.
The cover art below shows a group of rebels battling it out while they are being overrun by AT-AT’s, and some smaller AT-ST’s. This new novel will tell the story of the 61st mobile infantry, or Twilight Company, and it will hit the shelves on November 3rd. It will be released just two weeks before the upcoming blockbuster video game, Star Wars Battlefront.
