Beginner's guide

I’m completely new to the game series and would like to learn to play the game, where do I start?

We recommend that you start by playing the Tutorial mission, this will guide you through the game systems as you encounter them.

Both in Commander Customization and during gameplay, you might spot a green diamond next to some options. This means that they are recommended for beginners, and if you don’t know what to choose this option is a ‘safe choice’.

If you want to dive in and read about the game systems, different units, and really find out how the game works, you can click into the Imperial Archives. It is like an in-game Wiki, that you can go to whenever you need more info about something, without exiting the game.
