It's official: Han Solo, Princess Leia, and Emperor Palpatine are headed to the front lines. Star Wars Battlefront lead hero designer Jamie Keen confirmed the new hero and villain characters - which were previously leaked in some Battlefront beta files - in a post to the PlayStation Blog. They bring the total hero/villain count up to six, alongside Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, and Boba Fett.
You can check out each character's abilities in the gallery above. I'm looking forward to seeing how their different styles affect the tide of battle; playing exclusively as Vader and Son during the Battlefront beta did get a little old. And this one isn't confirmed yet, but it looks like Yoda may be headed to Star Wars Battlefront, too.
