o New duels: Battle opponents like Count Dooku and Darth Vader on your journey to become a Jedi

o New Duels of Fate mode, a battle-by-battle experience to sharpen your Jedi skills against the Dark Side.

o New Galactic Dance Off mode loaded with Star Wars-themed pop tunes where those still honing their Jedi skills can take a break to battle Darth Vader on the dance floor or bust a move “Solo style.”
