After the teaser trailer for the long-awaited Star Wars: Battlefront II leaked a few days ago, the rumors of a campaign being added to the sequel, and characters from all three trilogies being included into the multiplayer mode were all confirmed. The leaked teaser also revealed that the sequel's new campaign mode would focus on a female Imperial stormtrooper dealing with the aftermath of the Empire's fall and the rise of The First Order.
During today's Star Wars: Battlefront II panel at Star Wars Celebration Orlando, EA DICE premiered the first full length trailer, featuring a deeper look into the story that Battlefront II will be built around, and according to the game's developers, the story will be canon to the Star Wars universe.
The developers also revealed that story will revolve around Iden Versio (Janina Gavankar), a female stormtrooper that leads an elite special forces squad known as Inferno Squad. Iden's story will take place immediately after the destruction of the Death Star II from Return of the Jedi, as Inferno Squad and the remaining Imperial forces begin acting out the Emperor's contingency plan. The game's campaign will also allow players to take control of other characters, even Luke Skywalker.
As for the game's multiplayer mode, it will include heroes from all eras with much more dynamic fighting styles, and an in-game initiate system that does away with hero coins. Heroes will also have a career mode that helps unlock new abilities. Other multiplayer details include droids as playable characters, split-screen co-op, new vehicles for space battles, and new maps from all eras.
Star Wars: Battlefront II will be available on Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC November 17th, 2017.
