Star Wars: Battlefront II full length trailer, release date revealed; may have new type...

  1. It’s been an exciting few days for Star Wars fans. First came the leaked teaser trailer for the upcoming Battlefront II title. Then it was The Last Jedi’s turn to set the internet ablaze. Now, we’ve finally seen the full length trailer for SW: Battlefront II and know the game’s PC release date.

    The Star Wars Celebration 2017, which ran from April 13 – 16 in Orlando, FL, saw the official release of the game’s trailer, expanding on the leaked (and now deleted) footage that arrived earlier in the week.

    We now know that the single-player campaign puts you in control of Iden Versio, commander of Inferno Squad, which is described by the official website as "an Imperial special forces unit equally lethal on the ground and in space."

    The solo experience takes place just after Return of the Jedi, in the aftermath of the second Death Star’s destruction. The story bridges the gap between the last movie in the original trilogy and The Force Awakens, which is set around 30 years later.

    Players won’t be limited to controlling Versio in the campaign. The game will at points switch perspectives, placing you in the role of famous characters such as Luke Skywalker and Kylo Ren.

    The site also reveals when we can expect to see Battlefront II on PC. Pre-order content relating to The Last Jedi suggested the launch would come just before the movie’s December release. It seems this is the case; Battlefront II is coming to PC on November 17.

    There’s already been some confusion over the game’s season pass. Bernd Diemer, the creative director on Battlefront II, said “we don’t have a season pass,” in comments reported by Mashable. But EA asked the publication to withhold the confirmation as it may not be accurate. The company gave the following statement.

    While we’re not ready to confirm any live service plans just yet, what we can say is this we heard the feedback from our Battlefront community loud and clear. We know they want more depth, more progression, and more content. So we’re focused on delivering that in every dimension of Star Wars Battlefront II. We’ll have more to share about our plans soon.

    To be honest, I'd rather see a Half Life 3 than another bunch of Star Wars stuff ......

    Well, at least they can't use the hype that it's a new Battlefront game like the first one (and have to make it their own).
    The hype about stuff from all era's and space battles however is a little laughable (since the originals had that). But I'm curious to see if they actually give the fans what they wanted in the first place....

    So for how long has Ant-Man been in this?

    The worst part about this game is it'll be difficult to look up stuff on the actually-good original Battlefront II.
