Story-wise, from interviews, demos, and concept art the following can be gleaned:

  • Haden Blackman is writing the story, which involves "delv[ing] deeper into Darth Vader's history."
  • Steve Sansweet confirmed that it will take place between Episode III and Episode IV, will feature both established and new characters, and its story "has some incredible revelations."
  • The demo shows a Star Destroyer in the sky over Naboo, although it was possibly only used to show off the graphics engine as opposed to reveal any plot.
  • The first piece of concept art shows Vader, AT-STs, and an AT-AT fighting Wookiees on Kashyyyk. The second piece of concept art show Vader looking over a group of four people, presumably mercenaries: a Gand, a Human woman with a vibrostaff, a masked Human or Humanoid male, and a droid that resembles a cross between Grievous and HK-47.[3]
  • The third piece of concept art shows a human figure with a red lightsaber standing before a crashed capital ship, which appears to be a Venator Class as seen in Episode 3.
  • The fourth piece of concept art shows a Human man with two blue lightsabers, and two Human women, using a Force bubble to blast away Stormtroopers. A UT-AT can be seen in the lower right side of the picture and another one being thrown to the left.
  • Another concept art shows a hooded figure with blue lightsaber standing in front of what appears to be the crashed Star Destroyer precursor, with spider-like droids approaching. The artist appears to have labelled the picture as "Raxus Prime."
  • A concept art piece shows a Jedi with a blue lightsaber lifting up an AT-AT on a world that appears to be Naboo.
  • A concept art shows a female Zabrak holding two green "light-tonfas."
  • A concept art shows a hooded figure with a green double-bladed lightsaber inside some type of dark medical or torture facility. An EV supervisor droid, an IG-series assassin droid and a protocol droid are visible among the wreckage.
  • A concept art titled "Greatly Exaggerated" (in reference to the supposed death of some characters) shows Shaak Ti and a Rutian Twi'lek Jedi in a crystal cave resembling Ilum, with Rancors and a Dark Jedi.
  • A concept art depicts Darth Vader knighting an apprentice of his.
  • A Force Power Pre-Viz, while not actually using gameplay footage, shows a Jedi fighting stormtroopers in several locations, apparently including Aldera on Alderaan, the medical facility on Polis Massa, and a ruined city that could be Coruscant, or possibly Nar Shaddaa.
  • A female Zabrak Jedi character in the game is named Maris Brood
