EA releases a new Star Wars: Battlefront 2 story trailer

EA has released a new story trailer for Star Wars Battlefront II, showcasing an era where the Emperor has fallen, the Death Star II is in ruins and the Empire is struggling to maintain control of the galaxy and the rebellion continues to grow stronger. 
 
Unlike its predecessor, Star Wars Battlefront II will feature a single-player campaign, delivering a story that predominantly takes place between the events of Star Wars Episodes VI and VII. This places the game's protagonist, Iden Versio, in an era where the Empire falls and the New Republic takes form. 
 

Ignite the inferno and burn the Rebellion to the ground in Star Wars Battlefront 2's single-player campaign. Take on the role of Commander Iden Versio in a story following the destruction of the Death Star II and the death of the Emperor.



The trailer itself showcases both on-ground and in-space combat scenarios, giving players a great opportunity to get the hang of the game's control before moving online, as well as the ability to see a never before part of the new Star Wars canon.    

Other videos about Battlefront II's single player has also shown the Emperor reveal a little information on "Operation Cinder", which some Star Wars fans will know is part of a wider plan known as "Contingency". These events will only be familiar to those who are up to date on recent Star Wars literature, though it would be spoilerific to speak about it in more detail to other Star Wars fans. 

 

Star Wars: Battlefront II will release on November 17th on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

Nice. Looks like the campaign has some potential. I'll still be waiting until this on a deep sale though. As much as I love Star Wars I cannot justify full retail for a standard campaign when I have absolutely zero intention of playing the multiplayer aspect.Quote

Right there with ya, that's exactly how I feel. I'm dying for an open world Star Wars game similar to Skyrim.Quote

Looks good although it will probably be reused multiplayer maps and a very short campaign.

I'll play it on a friends Origin account but no way in hell am I paying for an EA game, EA can go suck on a bag of cyanide.Quote

Keep on dying then, because it won't happen as long Bioware has SW:ToR running which is EA's answer to all Star Wars openworld RPG.

Personally though I just wish they'd kill it off and move on, but one can only dream (or die hehe?)Quote

I played SWTOR from the day it launched and until it went F2P which happened because Bioware were VERY slow with bringing new content out and not listening to the community when it came to wish lists etc... so people just got fed up and left.

I've played it a few times since then and while I really do love Star Wars, It's not Star Wars anymore, It lost that magic feel the day it went F2P and introduced microtransactions.

I'd love a proper open world single player Star Wars RPG but that could also do drop-in co-op, I know I'll never get it but I can wish.Quote
