Star Wars: Battlefront 2 has been officially revealed with this exciting trailer.

It’s finally here. EA has dropped the first official trailer for Star Wars: Battlefront 2 moments ago during the Star Wars Celebration event.

The video is made up of “game engine footage” and shows a few scenes from the campaign. It looks like we’ll be playing as a member of an Imperial special forces unit. DICE alongside Motive, and Criterion are all working on Battlefront 2.

The trailer actually leaked online a couple of days ago, though this version is much longer and the context of events makes a lot more sense.

The video also reveals that you’ll get to play as heroes from the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi film by pre-ordering, though no details about this promo are available at this time.

The most interesting reveal here is that we’ll be able to fight across the different eras of Star Wars, which sounds great, but no doubt is going to be a challenge for developers.

Star Wars: Battlefront 2 is out later this year on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. We expect to get the release date at E3 2017 in June.
