GENRE First Person Shooter
ESRB RATING "RP" for Rating Pending

Star Wars Republic Commando is a squad-based first-person shooter that lets you explore the elite world of the Star Wars® military. Leading a 3-man squad of Republic Commandos, your missions take you deep behind enemy lines on over 14 intense and challenging levels through three different campaigns where you will face more than ten brutal enemies. You'll have more than a dozen deadly weapons at your disposal, but none more lethal than your squad. What makes the squad in Star Wars Republic Commando so unique is the game's innovative 'One Touch Squad Control' system that allows you to engage your squad with just one button.

Republic Commandos are the elite among the Clone Troopers and were created as a fierce, highly-trained specialized combat force to perform covert operations. Players must take their squad of Republic Commandos on numerous precision missions featuring hostage rescue, infiltration/data retrieval, assassination, assault, sabotage and reconnaissance assignments. They will have access to more than a dozen authentic weapons including the primary Republic Commando firearm, the DC-17m Interchangeable Combat Weapon System and the DC-15s Sidearm Blaster Pistol, as well as enemy weapons such as the Trandoshan Slaver APC Array Blaster and Geonosian Elite Beam Weapon. But the player's greatest weapon will be the squad. The squad instinctively reacts on-the-fly to player's commands and the situation at hand, without extensive and complex squad set-up.

Set in the period between Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace and leading into Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones, Star Wars Republic Commando covers both new and familiar environments, including the hostile surface and subterranean setting of the planet Geonosis, the massive machine-like interiors of a Separatist Core Ship, a disabled and overrun Republic Assault Ship and the lower jungles and tree cities of the Wookiee home planet of Kashyyyk. Players will engage in challenging combat against such enemies as Super Battle Droids, Droidekas, Geonosian Drones and Warriors and Trandoshan Scavenger Droids and Trandoshan Mercenaries. They will also face the powerful bodyguards of EP III's new villain, General Grievous, the leader of the Separatist armies.

Developed and published by LucasArts, Star Wars Republic Commando features an enhanced version of the acclaimed Unreal engine technology and will be optimized for Xbox Live content. The game will also offer multiplayer capabilities including deathmatch, team deathmatch and capture the flag.
