Star Wars: Empire at War - Forces of Corruption - hands-on

The Rebels gain the tactically incredible Jedi Master Yoda and the lightsaber tossing Luke Skywalker to their stable of heroes. The ungainly (yet extremely powerful) B-wing starfighter joins the Rebel Alliance ship roster as well, adding heavy assault capabilities to the fleet during space battles.

But the Corruption forces' Galactic Conquest campaign is the only new storyline that you'll get with the expansion - although the Empire and Rebel fleets receive those notable upgrades, the core gameplay changes very little from the original game. Those who played through the extensive (and repetitive) campaigns of the original game may not find enough new content to interest them, even with the shift in focus to interstellar gangstas.If you feel like living dangerously, look for Forces of Corruption to arrive in late October.
