Command a whole new faction of ruthless criminals as you experience the beginnings of Tyber Zann's rise to power as the galactic crime lord. Encounter upgraded Empire and Rebellion forces as you seek to replace Jabba the Hutt as the most powerful criminal leader in the galaxy. -- 3d Gamers

More screenshots
Posted on 9/25/2006 at 8:37 PM by Crazed Ewok
Petroglyph has released some more awesome screenshots and concept art. My favorite of the four is this one. It kind of reminds me of a giant Raven's Claw or Moldly Crow (it looks more like them in the actual screenshot, trust me), but that cool blue motif really makes it nice. There's 4 images in the group, such as this one which visualizes some Droidekas fighting against Wookiee soldiers.

All of these and a podcast detailing the concept art can be found on Petroglyph's main page for EaW here.
