We've Finally Seen A Campaign Mission From Star Wars: Battlefront II

Below you'll find all of the announcements from the conference in the order they were revealed. It will introduce a single-player storyline where its predecessor did not, but expect the game's multiplayer to expand as well. While this meant many fan-favorite stories from the Expanded Universe were left behind, it also meant all new content moving forward would be canon.

The trailer shows us lots of Star Wars goodness, with characters, maps and weapons spanning all 3 Star Wars eras. Even if you're not a fan of the prequels, it's hard to argue that the inclusion of Maul and the possibility of well-known Clone Troopers isn't exciting.

We don't know what platforms Anthem will be on, though the end of the trailer warns that 4K won't be available on "all platforms" so Xbox One and either PlayStation 4 or PC seems like a slam dunk. Players will be able to embark on a narrative driven single-player campaign, sort of story time in soccer. First, the story of Star Wars Battlefront II will showcase the bridge between what happened in Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi and Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens. Players looking to get into the game earlier can do so with the Star Wars Battlefront II: Elite Trooper Deluxe Edition starting on November 14th, or through the Play First Trials on EA Access and Origin Access‡ starting November 9th.

Penned by Spec Ops: The Line scribe Walt Williams, players follow Iden Versio, the commander of Inferno Squad, with brief interludes featuring Luke Skywalker, Kylo Ren, and more. A demo will be playable in August so stay tuned for that along with other details regarding the upcoming game.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 was the star of the show at EA Play 2017, with a full half hour of Electronic Arts' pre-E3 press briefing dedicated to the game's multiplayer component. EA said in the past that Battlefront 2 won't offer a Season Pass, but today marks the first time the publisher has detailed its post-launch plans. Featuring real-world courts and a new story, players will be taking their skills from the street to the stadium.
