EA and DICE will be debuting some brand new Star Wars Battlefront 2 gameplay during a livestream event on June 10th at 12:30pm Pacific Time. The gameplay footage will feature The Battle of Theed, a major moment from Star Wars: Episode 1. This event will be held at EA Play, where the publisher will be showing off a number of big games that will arrive throughout 2017.
“Sleek N-1 Starfighters and Vulture Droids scream overhead spewing light and fire. Nimble AT-RT Walkers race around corners, pursued by roaring AATs,” describes the announcement.
“Agile Clone Jet Troopers hop from rooftop to rooftop, while rampaging B2 Super Battle Droids level everything in their path. Armies of Clones and Droids sprint across cover, their blazing weapons shattering the tranquility of the once-peaceful capital of Naboo. And at the center of the swirling melee the lightsabers and Darth Maul and Rey cut swaths through the ranks of the battling troopers.”
Star Wars Battlefront 2 looks to bring the series back in a big way. Expanding the time periods involved while adding tons of new gameplay mechanics and content, the game is hoping to rectify many of the mistakes made with the first release.
Those who are able to make it to EA Play will also be able to go hands-on with Star Wars Battlefront 2. If you’ll be in the Hollywood area you can get tickets right here.
