Star Wars Battlefront 2 – Story and Ending Summary
Star Wars Battlefront 2 brings the much-requested single player campaign to the series, following an Imperial commander named Iden Versio, leader of the elite Inferno Squad. While the campaign may be short, it adds on some interesting lore to the overall series, and tries to link the original trilogy with The Force Awakens.
Battlefront 2’s story keeps things nicely varied by switching up who you play as, now always centered around Iden. It’s a pretty straightforward story, but it can be easy to miss a few lore pieces if you aren’t totally up to speed on Star Wars. We’ll help walk you through the different events that happen in the game, and break them down by every two chapters. As such, we’ll be spoiling the entirety of the Star Wars Battlefront 2, right down to the ending. So if you haven’t beaten it, or there’s anything you want to experience yourself, turn away now.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 Story and Ending Summary
Star Wars Battlefront 2 starts with Iden Versio captured by Rebel forces and held prisoner, as she’s interrogated for information. Unbeknownst to the Rebels, Versio allowed herself to be captured in order to delete and encrypted transmission that the Rebel Alliance had intercepted from The Empire. This transmission held details on the Empire’s plant to lure the Rebels to Endor, and completely wipe them out there. With the help of her trusty backpack droid, Versio manages to escape captivity, delete the transmission, and then battle her way off of the ship and onto the Imperial ship Corvus. There she confirms the mission’s success with the other members of Inferno Squad, Gideon Hask and Del Meeko.
Now we move the The Battle of Endor, where we see Inferno Squad taking part by securing the area around the ruined shield generator. The squad watches in disbelief as the Empire’s plan fails and the Death Star II explodes. Scattered and broken Inferno Squad and other Imperial forces battle their way through Rebels to reach transports, so they can retreat, and Iden can meet her father on the Imperial Star Destroyer Eviscerator.
