The hype is almost certainly going to be through the roof when DICE finally unveils Star Wars Battlefront gameplay footage this week. But the developer isn’t leaving anything to chance, whipping fans into a frenzy with a series of teases.

First up, here are some lovely shots from EA’s Star Wars account. You can put them together for a whole image, as I’ve done above.
