In it you play Iden Versio, who leads the Empire's special ops Inferno Squadron, and the trailer kicks off with the destruction of the Death Star from the final moments of Return Of The Jedi. Now including characters from The Force Awakens and (potentially) Rogue One, Battlefront II hopes to address numerous problems fans had with EA's Battlefront and provide the best multiplayer Star Wars experience since the original Star Wars Battlefront II by Pandemic. Darth Maul, Yoda, Kylo Ren, and Rey were all confirmed to be playable, and that there will be many more across the three playable eras.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 will launch on November 17th for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

EA has also opened the doors to Star Wars: Battlefront II's official website, which includes a glimpse at more concept art from the game.

It said those killed were mostly residents of two villages in Idlib province but included rebel fighters guarding the convoy. It was not immediately clear if the evacuees feared attacks similar to Saturday's bombing.

Are you excited about Star Wars: Battlefront II? First and foremost Battlefront II will feature space battles, allowing players to try and take down capital ships and fly through asteroid fields.

There is a pre-order bonus for the game, which takes the form of cosmetic "Kylo Ren and Rey-themed looks" from The Last Jedi, so perhaps that's the direction DICE are going in regarding longevity.

One of the biggest complaints about Star Wars Battlefront was the lack of a single-player campaign.

Ever since The Force Awakens climaxed on the dramatic confrontation with Luke Skywalker, the identity of Rey's parents has been a fiercely theorized topic; linking her to Luke and even Emperor Palpatine.

Matt Webster of Criterion said that they wanted to capture the essence of being a hero in the Star Wars universe with Battlefront II, focusing on every area of play. Along the way, she and her companions encounter a cast of Star Wars' greatest characters.

An Elite Trooper Deluxe Edition will be available for preorder including upgrades to all trooper classes and access to the game three days early on November 14th.
