The makers of Star Wars Battlefront II haven’t been shy about showing off plenty of footage, providing fans with a thorough look at multiplayer at E3 2017 and a deeper dive into the game’s story at the Disney D23 Expo. But hey, what have they done for us lately? Star Wars fans are never satisfied!
Well, thankfully, EA will be using this year’s Gamescom event to reveal a new Star Wars Battlefront II trailer and mode. Here’s all the crucial info, straight from the publisher:
Get ready for your first look at the Starfighter Assault mode! Teams will face off in a swirling dogfight in the Fondor: Imperial Shipyard map, weaving around an Imperial Star Destroyer complete with speedy fighters, thundering bombers, distinct hero ships, and more. Will the brave pilots of the Rebel Alliance triumph against the Imperial Navy, or will the intrepid aces of the Galactic Empire foil the insurgents’ plans?
The livestream will be your first glimpse at the vastly improved starfighter combat, with superior controls, deeper customization, and role-based team play featuring an all new class-based system. See it in action, and then try it yourself. Fondor: Imperial Shipyard will join the Theed Galactic Assault map in the beta starting October 6.
The new Star Wars Battlefront II starfighter segments are being developed by Criterion, the folks behind Burnout and Need for Speed, so expect a faster, more finely-tuned experience. EA posted this teaser for the Gamescom space combat reveal on Twitter:
The Gamescom livestream kicks off on August 21 at 9:30am PT. Star Wars Battlefront II soars onto PC, Xbox One, and PS4 on November 17.
