Ever since we got our first look at the upcoming video game Star Wars Battlefront 2, we've been foaming at the mouth over the seriously enhanced gameplay. This new launch trailer for EA seen above is next level stuff, though. Prequel, OT, and Sequel characters mixing it up, traveling to other worlds, it's all the stuff of Star Wars fanboys dreams.
I never finished my campaign on the 2015 Battlefront reboot, but I genuinely enjoyed it while I was playing. I imagine this will be more of the same, but better, like all good sequels. The list of playable characters is also impressively loaded with fan favorites: Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, Emperor Palpatine, Boba Fett, Yoda, Darth Maul, Han Solo, Rey, Kylo Ren, Finn, Princess Leia, Lando Calrissian, Bossk, Chewbacca, and Captain Phasma. Damn, I can't think of a single one of them I wouldn't want to play through the entire game as... Palpatine maybe, that'd probably get boring wielding all that power.
Anyway, Star Wars Battlefront II is scheduled to be released worldwide on Friday November 17. Yes, that's the same day as Justice League, The Punisher, Jim & Andy, and one of your kids' birthdays too, at this rate.
