new galactic conquest features

at E3, petroglyph showed that when you play as Zann, you can enter in the middle of a battle the empire and rebels are already fighting. What if you are the rebels and you decide to fight the empire (or vice versa)? Is there a possibility that the Zann AI could come in and fight against both of you too?

The game is coming out next month so you might as well wait and see for yourself.

I remember reading in a post by one of the devs that tactical battles, both ground and space, while playing Galactic Conquest will be two-way only.

Probably the same way. Just so that I know I'm being clear: while three players can play GC at once, only two can engage each other in battle at any one time. For example, if the Empire is holding one planet and both the Rebels and Zann Consortium send fleets to attack it, the first fleet to arrive fights the Empire, while the second fleet meets the winner. That's how I interpreted it, anyway.

I'm pretty sure you can only ever have two players in Galactic Conquest games.

Really? I thought I saw one of the devs say in an interview some time ago that you could have all three. I could be mistaken, of course, but I hope not.

Skirmish Mode (space or land, multiplayer or solo play) = 3 players/teams.
Galactic Conquest (multiplayer) = 2 players.

What about single player Galactic Conquest?

Yes, single player GC is what I want to know as well. Surely you can't just leave one faction out of it?

It wouldn't give the galactic conqeust the feel of the Galactic Civil War, if you were the Rebels just fighting Zann Consortium with no Empire. I sure hope All 3 teams can be i a galactic conquest (single)

Single player galactic conquest contains all three factions at the same time. Makes for some interesting back and forth play

It's in GC too. It's only the Eclipse that's Campaign only.
