A brand-new trailer for Star Wars Battlefront II has arrived in time for Sony’s Paris Games Week, showcasing the game’s three playable eras and giving players a brief glimpse into the story mode.
Star Wars Battlefront II expands upon the experience of the previous game by allowing players to take the fight through three different eras of Star Wars history – the Clone Wars of the Prequel Trilogy, the Galactic Civil War of the Original Trilogy, and the currently-unnamed conflict between the First Order, New Republic, and the Resistance that serves as the focal point of the Sequel Trilogy. The game features a single-player campaign that also helps fill in the gap between Star Wars: Return of the Jedi and Star Wars: The Force Awakens, showing a campaign from the perspective of an elite Imperial soldier as she and her squad fight the Rebel Alliance after the second Death Star is destroyed.
The game will feature 14 multiplayer maps at launch, 4 single-player maps specifically designed for the game’s campaign, 14 playable heroes, 39 playable vehicles, and more of everything being added over time via free downloadable content. One such expansion will add two new heroes and two new maps tied to The Last Jedi, set for release shortly before the movie itself comes out.
Star Wars Battlefront II releases on November 17, 2017.
5 Ways ‘The Last Jedi’ Links To Greater ‘Star Wars’ Canon
Star Wars: The Last Jedi is right around the corner. The film is the next chapter in the ongoing Skywalker saga. It’s also unique in the Star Wars films as it is the first one to be an immediate sequel to its predecessor. But that does not mean there won’t be plenty of Easter eggs for fans of the greater Star Wars canon to pick up on and enjoy.
One of the biggest criticisms about the previous Star Wars canon, now dubbed Legends, is that ancillary material never connected. Since Disney has taken over and the establishment of the Star Wars Story Group, that has all changed. The modus operandi has been to have everything connect but not in an intrusive way– one that feels more natural to reward the more hardcore fans as well as to intrigue new fans.
