Star Wars Battlefront II launches in a few month, which suggests EA and DICE are ramping up the promotional movies. The most recent trailer focuses on the single-player marketing campaign, with a fast glimpse of some acquainted faces together with Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia.
In case you weren’t hyped for Battlefront II already, this newest trailer from EA ought to assist get the job accomplished. One of many greatest complaints leveled in opposition to the primary sport was that the entire motion was centered on multiplayer confrontations, with no story to talk of. Battlefront II goals to right that and, based mostly on this newest trailer, it appears like mentioned story goes to be fairly epic.
Whereas the Single Participant Trailer focuses on our new protagonist, Iden Versio, we nonetheless get a take a look at Luke Skywalker (within the flesh) and Princess Leia (as a hologram), so we determine it is a fairly secure guess that they are going to come into play someplace alongside the strains. There’s a lot debate as as to if or not Iden will defect from the Empire someplace alongside the road and, if anybody can persuade her, it is probably one of many twins.
And actually, that is one of the crucial thrilling issues about Battlefront II. Certain, the beta was nice (when you do not embrace these poorly conceived loot packing containers) and we’re excited to check out much more of the net, however what we’re actually interested by right here is new and distinctive tales set inside the world of Star Wars. Iden is an Elite Trooper working for the Empire, who boasts a trigger she appears to imagine in wholeheartedly. There’s the possibility she’ll determine someplace alongside the road that the Rebels are those being wronged right here, however that is not a given.
It has been mentioned that each good villain is the hero of their very own story, and that is precisely the story we wish to play by way of. What’s it in regards to the Empire that has satisfied of us like Iden that they’re the “good guys” in a given situation? We’re keen to seek out out.
As for the remainder of the trailer, it does a pleasant job organising the remainder of the marketing campaign. Within the trailer, the soon-to-be-tossed-into-oblivion Emperor refers to an “inferno.” There’s a number of lore to juggle on this universe however, if reminiscence serves, that is a reference to his last-ditch effort to be carried out within the occasion of his passing. In different phrases, if I die, this is the panic button that may simply obliterate the rise up.
Iden is part of the Inferno Squad, which is tasked with finishing up these orders. However whereas we’re positively excited to see what new faces and locations Battlefront to will introduce us to, we’re additionally delighted to be taught that loads of current characters will probably be making an look, too. Prepare to satisfy the entire gang on Nov. 17.
