WATCH: ‘Star Wars: Battlefront II’ trailer leaked online
Originally scheduled for a premiere on Star Wars Celebration 2017, which will be held between April 13 to 16, the latest trailer for “Star Wars: Battlefront II” was prematurely leaked online.
The trailer showed various tidbits that gamers can expect on the game’s release. This includes appearances from Yoda, Darth Maul, Kylo Ren and Rey. Most notable are the hints to the single player campaign’s story, which appears to be set after the events of “Return of the Jedi”.
The Verge notes that it was not specified exactly where in the Star Wars canon the game will draw from. At the very least, the trailer showed glimpses of what appears to be the Starkiller base and a snowy battlefield that looks like the planet Hoth. It also showed battles raging in space between capital ships and smaller craft like X-Wings, as well as Tie Fighters.
A release date has yet to be announced but judging from the release date of the first “Star Wars: Battlefront” (November 2015), the game could be out before the premiere of the next Star Wars movie, which is “The Last Jedi”.
“The Star Wars: Battlefront” series is an online multiplayer first-person shooter game that puts players in the shoes of either rebels or imperial soldiers, on a battlefield set in the Star Wars universe. They may also play some of the iconic characters from the Star Wars movie franchise like Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker, after picking up a special item during a match. Alfred Bayle/JB
