EA Games made one of their biggest Gamescon announcements yet as they confirmed that Star Wars: Battlefront II would be coming to the event. Best yet, the footage we’re going to get to see has nothing to do with character, it’s going to be pure space fights! X-Wings, Y-Wings, B-Wings (yes, those exist), TIE Fighters, and Star Destroyers galore in what will probably be their biggest demo of the game since E3.
What’s more, EA will be doing a live stream reveal of the footage on August 21 at 9:30am PDT (12:30pm EDT) for those unable to attend in Germany. There’s no official word as to what kind of battle footage we’ll be seeing, but seeing the option in front of us, it would be a good guess that we’ll probably get a little taste of everything from the original trilogy, the prequels, the new trilogy and Rogue One.
Star Wars: Battlefront II isn’t due out until November 17, but it appears EA Games are trying to bring fans everything they possibly can to entice people to buy the game and make up for some of the flaws the first title had. No matter what, next week is going to be a sight to see.
