Fresh from Star Wars Celebration 2017, we finally have a look at the first full length trailer for Star Wars Battlefront II.
“Live the untold Star Wars story of Iden, an elite Stormtrooper, in an original single-player story. Battle on land and in space in an expanded multiplayer experience with iconic heroes and villains, thrilling space battles, and a deep progression and customization system.”
It appears that this game will actually have a story-driven campaign following the destruction of the second Death Star at the end of Return of the Jedi. It also appears that the perspective will be from that of a special forces Imperial trooper and her squad, which is both unexpected and unique. To many, the Rebel Alliance have always been the heroes, but to the soldiers of the Empire, they were terrorists and traitors. Seeing things unfold from the other point of view should prove interesting to many fans.
The most recent Battlefront game was beautiful, but severely lacking in content. Most notably, a single player campaign, a galactic conquest mode, and space battles. All things that made the original Battlefront games so iconic and so much fun. It seems that some of these features may be returning, including the ability to fight battles across multiple Star Wars eras with multiple heroes.
Star Wars Battlefront II will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on November 17th, 2017.
