Electronic Arts and Dice officially announced the Star Wars Battlefront II yesterday, along with a reveal trailer. The trailer had leaked earlier, but the official video is a bit longer than the leaked one. You can check out the reveal trailer below.
Here’s more information on Battlefront II:
Star Wars Battlefront II introduces a new single-player Star Wars™ story. You play the role of Commander Iden Versio, leader of the Galactic Empire’s elite special forces unit, Inferno Squad. After witnessing the destruction of the second Death Star, Iden’s team embarks on an extraordinary odyssey of revenge, betrayal, and redemption spanning the 30 year gap between Star Wars™: Return of the Jedi™ and Star Wars™: The Force Awakens™. Along the way, she and her companions encounter a cast of Star Wars’ greatest characters. You’ll take control of many of these beloved heroes in an adventure ranging across a series of fantastic planets, including awe-inspiring settings you’ve never seen before.
When it comes to the Star Wars universe, Battlefront II has been confirmed to be a part of the actual canon. All the prominent eras from Star Wars’ history will be playable, and hero characters from each of these respective time periods will be playable as well, including Luke Skywalker, Kylo Ren, Yoda, Darth Maul, and Rey.
In multiplayer, a maximum of 40 players will be able to play in an online match simultaneously. Space Battles will also be a feature in the game, something requested by fans back when the first game released.
Lastly, pre-ordering the deluxe version of the game when it releases later this year will get you the ability to play a few days before the game’s actual launch date.
Star Wars Battlefront II will release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on November 14th, 2017.
