The 501st Legion, also known as the 501st Battalion during the Clone Wars and later known as "Vader's Fist" and the Five Hundred and First, was an elite unit of clone troopers commissioned by Supreme Chancellor Palpatine during the Clone Wars that later became a stormtrooper unit. Made up of units like Torrent Company, the 501st fought in many battles, such as the Battle of Teth and the Battle of Coruscant, becoming one of the most well-known legions. In 19 BBY, the 501st became Darth Vader's personal unit as he led them during Operation: Knightfall, in which the clones helped take down the Jedi, whom they believed to be traitors to the Republic.
Welcome to the April update (part 1 (maybe)), it’s been a while! Take a look at what we've all been up to!

Hello there ladies and gentleman... who are we kidding?
So, we as a team have been talking about various aspects of the game. Half of them involve whether or not to ‘enhance’ princess Leia’s cleavage. It was later deemed sexist but nonetheless, remains a good idea.
Besides this, the most divisive issue continues to be how we can maintain continuity between the Galactic Civil War and the Republic Eras. It is true that George gifted the Star Wars fan-base three more films that surpass the originals in many aspects (mainly the sales of toys and merchandise) beginning in 1999.
Think about it! There are very few species of aliens that carry over into each of the trilogies. We can confirm that ewoks will be featuring heavily in the Republic segments of the game. In fact, as you read this our artists are adapting them for desert, snow and even space environments as George would have intended.
But that’s not all! We wanted to bring everyone’s favourite species to the Galactic Civil War.
We did not want to feature them as heavily as the Ewoks since some things are best served in small doses.
Anyway, enough from me! Here is a WIP screen of what we are working on. See you in the next update.
