First Star Wars Battlefront 2 Trailer Leaks

First Star Wars Battlefront 2 Trailer Leaks

The first trailer for Star Wars Battlefront 2 was scheduled to premiere during the Star Wars Celebration event this week in Orlando, but it has arrived early due to a leak. You can watch the trailer here on Vimeo (via NeoGAF).

A female soldier narrates the video, which shows there will be a story campaign ("the untold soldier's story," the video says), as well as multiplayer battles that the series is known for. And as rumored, Battlefront 2 won't be limited to one era of Star Wars alone. Instead, "all eras" will be represented, the video says. Some of the characters shown in the video include Darth Maul, Yoda, Rey, and Kylo Ren. You may have a new mode of traversal, too, as it looks like there will be rideable Tauntauns.

We also learn from the video that people who preorder will get access to something called Star Wars: The Last Jedi Heroes. This sounds like it could be content related to the new movie, The Last Jedi, which is due out in December. 2015's Star Wars: Battlefront also received content (Battle of Jakku) tied to a new movie, in that case The Force Awakens.

EA has been teasing the details about Battlefront 2 for almost a year now, having confirmed its existence last May. Since then, it's acknowledged criticisms of the first game and repeatedly suggested it will be a larger, more in-depth game that features a single-player campaign.

Today's leaked trailer confirms Battlefront 2 is coming to PlayStation 4. Versions of the game for Xbox One and PC are also expected. It also appears that Sony's co-marketing deal with Disney continues for the sequel, as the new video ends by saying "the Force is strong with PlayStation."

No release date has been announced for Battlefront 2, though launching near The Last Jedi would seem likely.

EA had planned to debut a Battlefront 2 trailer (possibly this one) during a panel at Star Wars Celebration on April 15. The panel is titled, "The Galaxywide Premiere of Star Wars Battlefront II," and it takes place at 11:30 AM PT on April 15; you can watch it live.

People asked me why I didn't get the first battlefront EA released. It's because of this. EA is going to release sequels of this series as fast as they can. Why buy a game no one will be playing after 6 months.
Outpostnine is that 1%.
