First Look: Imperial Commando: 501st
« on: March 23, 2009, 10:30 PM »
So the RC in TFU game was a hint of how they would look like Nice!!! I thought it was going to be like the IC Scout hehe perhaps later.

Cant wait to have the book or action figures are made....PS: of course another Game   ;)

The Clone Wars are over, but for those with reason to run from the new galactic Empire, the battle to survive has only just begun....The Jedi have been decimated in the Great Purge, and the Republic has fallen. Now the former Republic Commandos -- the galaxy's finest special forces troops, cloned from Jango Fett -- find themselves on opposing sides and in very different armor. Some have deserted and fled to Mandalore with the mercenaries, renegade clone troopers, and rogue Jedi who make up Kal Skirata's ragtag resistance to Imperial occupation. Others -- including men from Delta and Omega squads -- now serve as Imperial Commandos, a black ops unit within Vader's own 501st Legion, tasked to hunt down fugitive Jedi and clone deserters.

For Darman, grieving for his Jedi wife and separated from his son, it's an agonizing test of loyalty. But he's not the only one who'll be forced to test the ties of brotherhood. On Mandalore, clone deserters and the planet's own natives, who have no love for the Jedi, will have their most cherished beliefs challenged. In the savage new galactic order, old feuds may have to be set aside to unite against a far bigger threat, and nobody can take old loyalties for granted.

Find out more in Imperial Commando: 501st, the sequel to Order 66, by bestselling author Karen Traviss. It is due out in paperback from Del Rey Books in October. Here's a first look at the cover art by Greg Knight.

I can't wait for this one as the Republic Commando books were just great!  When I finished Order 66 I thought to myself they sure better continue this story cause I will be very angry if it ends here!
