New Supremacy Planets, Including Scarif
The list of Supremacy planets for the Age of Rebellion is spearheaded by the return of Scarif, a planet we know you’re incredibly excited to venture back to. Joining Scarif will also be a series of iconic Age of Rebellion locations; Hoth, Death Star II, Tatooine, and Yavin 4. Each of these locations will also be arriving into Instant Action, making the Age of Rebellion Supremacy experience available offline as well as online.
