Star Wars Battlefront is an action shooter series set in the beloved Star Wars universe. A full trailer was released today at the Star Wars Celebration in Orlando, Florida, for the long-awaited Star Wars Battlefront II, and it is bringing players to the dark side. Check out the entire trailer right here!
The description on the Youtube video boasts that players will “live the untold story of Iden, an elite Stormtrooper, in an original single-player story,” which is a very exciting prospect for those who often complained of the lack of story in 2015’s Star Wars Battlefront. The idea of playing a “bad guy” is also pretty new to the series, which glorifies the underdog resistance movement. That is certainly something that will get players talking.
In the trailer, we see characters from all eras of Star Wars history, including more recent characters such as Rey and Kylo Ren from the newest installment in the Star Wars main storyline, The Force Awakens. Of course, we see some reoccurring characters as well, such as young Luke Skywalker as well as a teaser for a fight between Yoda and a still-standing Darth Maul.
Star Wars Battlefront II will certainly have all the action-packed multiplayer battles and dogfights we loved from the first title, but the addition of a story and it being that of a Stormtrooper is certainly an innovative addition. It truly seems as though EA has listened to the pleas of fans and given them what they asked for. I might even have to pick it up.
Star wars Battlefront II will be released on November 17th of this year for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Will you be playing? Are you a fan of this new dark side storyline? Let us know!
