Star Wars Battlefront 2 Trailer Leaks!
Star Wars Battlefront 2 first trailer was supposed to premiere during the Star Wars Celebration event this week in Orlando, but it got leaked today.
A female soldier narrates the video, which shows there will be a story campaign (“the untold soldier’s story,” the video says), as well as multiplayer battles that the series is known for. And as rumored, Battlefront 2 won’t be limited to one era of Star Wars alone. Instead, “all eras” will be represented, the video says. Some of the characters shown in the video include Darth Maul, Yoda, Rey, and Kylo Ren. You may have a new mode of traversal, too, as it looks like there will be rideable Tauntauns.
People who preorder the game will get access to Star Wars: The Last Jedi Heroes. This sounds like it could be content related to the new movie, The Last Jedi, which is due out in December. 2015’s Star Wars: Battlefront also received content (Battle of Jakku) tied to a new movie, in that case, The Force Awakens.
Today’s leaked trailer confirms Battlefront 2 is coming to PlayStation 4. Versions of the game for Xbox One and PC are also expected. It also appears that Sony’s co-marketing deal with Disney proceeds for the sequel, as the new video ends by saying “the Force is great with PlayStation.”
No release date has been announced for Battlefront 2, though launching near The Last Jedi would seem likely.
EA had planned to debut a Battlefront 2 trailer during a panel at Star Wars Celebration on April 15. The panel is titled, “The Galaxywide Premiere of Star Wars Battlefront II,” and it takes place at 11:30 AM PT on April 15.
