After years of waiting, the new Star Wars Battlefront game is finally just around the corner. Those who remember how many times the potential sequels of this successful series have been cancelled, certainly appreciate knowing that the time has finally come. And the freshly released gameplay trailer offers the players a peek at everything they can expect.
Star Wars Battlefront, this time developed by EA Dice Studio, promises a return to the iconic battle locations known already from the previous Battlefront games, such as Endor or Hoth. It is clear from the trailer that the creators have put a lot of effort into recreating the film environment. A very special bonus appears in the possibility to recreate the Battle of Jakku – Jakku being the desert planet featuring in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Players will therefore have the chance to visit this planet before the film comes out. Just like in Battlefront II, there is the possibility to play as some of the heroes: at least Han Solo, Boba Fett, princess Leia, Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader and the Emperor are shown in the trailer. Every Battlefront fan is probably delighted at the iconic details remaining in the game, the trailer shows for example the classic snowspeeder trick of destroying AT-ATs by tripping them with the tow cable.
Star Wars Battlefront‘s launch date is 17th November for North America and 19th November for Europe and Australia.
