Star Wars Battlefront 2 Revealed! Preorder Now Jedi, Landing In November

Below, you can find all the important information, from news and videos to what you can expect in general.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens left the fate of Captain Phasma a little ambiguous, though most assumed the First Order heavyweight (played by Gwendoline Christie) managed to make it out of that trash compactor alive. EA and DICE showed off the first teaser trailer for Star Wars: Battlefront II including expanded multiplayer and a new single player mode.

"In Star Wars Battlefront II, we all wanted to really capture the essence of being heroic and how in Star Wars, anyone can become a hero", says Matt Webster, Executive Producer at Criterion.

When does the game come out?

Star Wars Battlefront II launches November 17 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC (Origin).

When does it take place? Johnson adds that a big part of the movie's story will be about the "deepening familial theme". Along with shots of new and returning characters, it gives the impression that Rebels' final season will be an emotional one, with a goal of giving the series a meaningful end. As the commander of Inferno Squad, Versio escapes from custody and vows to avenge her Emperor. Something to be very excited about is that console players will be able to enjoy an offline split-screen co-op where you can play with a friend and earn upgrades you can later use in online play. The game will also feature Iden's homeworld Vardos. Trooper skins will change to match the era and location of battle for more authenticity. There are different classes, including infantry and officers, and players can unlock new abilities. Some of these heroes include Luke Skywalker, Kylo Ren, Yoda, Darth Maul, and Rey. More was teased during the panel itself, with concept art showing off prequel era battles, with several pieces showing off Kamino during the Clone Wars.

Vehicles work the same way troopers and heroes do; they're upgradeable and customizable. Players can pilot renowned vessels like the Millennium Falcon or Luke Skywalker's X-Wing in exciting dogfights with up to 24 players.
