Producer Ben Irving had this to say:
"“This year, it’s even more personal. We’ve raised the stakes for the player as they fight to seize control of the Eternal Throne and rule the galaxy. But that’s not the end of your story. In fact, it’s just the beginning. You must be prepared to make difficult choices along the way to not only take the throne, but also fight to keep it.”"
After conquering the Eternal Throne, players will be able to grow their power and influence through the all-new Galactic Command Progression System, which features a fast-action Star Wars combat. With multiple challenge modes to choose from, each player can choose to play their way.

In another new addition to the game: Uprisings, players will be able to join with three allies to confront different enemy factions that rise up to challenge their command, while earning rare and powerful rewards. In each battle, players will have to choose a side in the ongoing Dark vs. Light Side War. As the Dark or Light Side takes control, battles will erupt across the galaxy. This will offer large group battles that will certainly bring players together like never before, to shift the balance of the Force to their side, be it Light, or Dark.
