Star Wars: Battlefront 2 Trailer Leaks Ahead of Weekend Celebration

Lots of familiar faces from the new movies and the old, but told from the Empire's side.

New information on Star Wars: Battlefront 2 was supposed to be coming during this weekend's Star Wars Celebration, but someone has jumped the planetkiller weapon and the new trailer has hit Imperial Space a few days early. And even though it's short, we get to see some interesting tidbits.

The opening shows the Death Star exploding over Endor, and Imperial troops being exhorted to "Avenge our Emperor" by what appears to be and an officer on Endor who saw the Death Star's demise first hand. Text talks about the untold soldier's story, so she could be the new protagonist in the promised single-player campaign. 

There will be multiplayer battles, which could include Hoth and Starkiller Base. We also get glimpses of heroes and villains spanning across all eras, including Darth Maul, Yoda, Rey and Kylo Ren. There could be more space battles as well, based on the footage, which makes sense after the Rogue One Scarif DLC for the first game included space combat.

No matter how you carve it with a lightsaber, it looks promising. Hopefully, we'll get more concrete details from the planned panel discussion on the game this weekend. If you can't be at the event, there will be hands-on time coming at EA Play around E3 this year.

      I'm gonna wait to be hyped about this one. The last one was just boring. I know it's lame but I really did just want Battlefield in a Star Wars skin.

      They will have to do something amazing if they want PC players to buy.

      I wonder if it will have single player war stories similar to BF1, they could be very fun in a Star Wars setting.

        I believe they have already stated it will have a campaign. I don't even mind if it's something short and sweet like Titanfall 2, but I NEED a campaign!

        I'd be 10x more interested in buying if it had a campaign. Especially if it supports coop. Only played the beta of the last one and they nailed the visuals/feel for things, but I had no desire to play that multiplayer long term.
