It sounds like Star Wars: Battlefront II will be mixing things up for their official gameplay reveal, drawing on multiple eras to create a 40-player battle as part of its worldwide gameplay premier. The action will take place in Theed, the capital of Padme Amidala\’s homeworld Naboo, which was a focal point of Episode 1: The Phantom Menace. Clone Troopers and Battle Droids will be duking it out with Darth Maul and Rey making up the Heroes that will cut through enemy ranks at will.
The Assault on Theed is set to go down during EA\’ E3 2017 livestream at 12:30 PST on Saturday, June 10th. The match set-up is your typical Assault/Defend scenario, with the Clone Troopers protecting the capital from the growing onslaught of Separatist Battle Droids.
Star Wars: Battlefront II is said to have three times the content of DICE\’s first outing, which should come as good news to many who felt that the game was lacking. The game also will not have a Season Pass, but will instead use “something different.”
Star Wars: Battlefront II will launch on November 17th, 2017.
