While unfortunately I wasn’t able to check out the EA panel live and see the new Star Wars Battlefront II trailer when it first debuted earlier today, I have now seen it, and I am in absolute amazement of how great it looks!
You can check it out in the video above, and see all the amazing action of Clone Troopers vs Battle Droids on Naboo, Darth Maul, Rey fighting Kylo Ren, Deathroopers, and so much more awesome new footage!
Also revealed today were some new details about the post launch content we can expect to see after the game launches, which will be free to all players who purchase the game. Here is all the info on the new content planed so far from the official Star Wars Battlefront II website:
We’re going to be hosting in-game events, quests, and challenges to keep things fresh. There are also going to be Seasons, the first of which releases in December inspired by Star Wars™: The Last Jedi™ . And, strap yourselves in: this content will be free* for everyone who plays Star Wars Battlefront II.
Every player who owns Star Wars Battlefront II will have access to the same iconic characters, planetary conflicts, sleek starfighters, and epic space battles throughout the entirety of the post-release support period. This starts with the Star Wars™: The Last Jedi™ Season coming this December, where all Star Wars Battlefront II players will get access to Finn, Captain Phasma, the new planet Crait, and more.
These new heroes will come with new Star Cards as well. Star Wars Battlefront II players will also be able to customize their favorite heroes and classes using Star Cards, which come in four rarities: Common, Uncommon, Rare, and Epic – all of which can be earned through play. Completing the in-game quests and challenges, taking part in events, and opening Crates can all grant Star Cards, which allow you to further customize your trooper, hero, and starfighter abilities.
As see if I couldn’t be more excited for Battlefront II after the Celebration Orlando reveal, seeing actual gameplay footage of prequel content with Clone Troopers in action, and voiced by Dee Bradly Baker from “Clone Wars” no less, was the main thing I was most excited for in the sequel, and the game is more than delivering on that front, as well as so much more great content to come.
Star Wars Battlefront II releases November 17th, and that date can’t come soon enough!
