EA used their presentation on Saturday at Star Wars Celebration to premiere the trailer for “Star Wars Battlefront II”.
The trailer confirms not only that the game will boast a single player campaign, unlike the last one, but one that will be both canon in the “Star Wars” universe and explore a very specific period.
The action follows Iden Versio, a special forces Imperial soldier, and kicks off at the end of the ‘Return of the Jedi’ as second Death Star explodes and the forces of the Galactic Empire are now in disarray. Iden vows to avenge her slain Emperor and eradicate the Rebellion in a story that will span the decades between ‘Return of the Jedi’ and ‘Force Awakens’.
The game offers players the chance to battle on land and in space in an expanded multiplayer experience with iconic heroes and villains from four different eras – Prequels, Clone Wars, Original Trilogy and Sequel Trilogy. There will also reportedly be ‘Last Jedi’-themed DLC. “Star Wars Battlefront II” will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on November 17th.
