  • Epic Looking Star Wars: Battlefront II Space Battles Teaser Trailer Leaked

We'll be at Gamescom this week, and will share our impressions of the new mode with you, so stay tuned.

Following a recent leak, Electronic Arts has published the official Star Wars Battlefront II Starfighter Assault gameplay trailer, which features game engine footage and gives us a glimpse of various ships as well as maps.

EA is hosting a live show from Gamescom on Monday, August 21 starting at 9:30 AM PT. We find out that the squadron is being led by none other than Poe Dameron from Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

We don't get to see Luke in action for long.

The trailer begins with familiar ships - X-Wings, Y-Wings before showing off vessels from the Prequel trilogy like Trade Federation fights and Darth Maul's Infiltrator. Here, the battle is taking place above the planet Ryloth located in the Outer Rim Territories. It's pretty cool because Yoda pops in on his own special starfighter, revealing that most of the characters from the ground battles will make an appearance in the space battles. Players will be able to take part in battles set across different locations from all three cinematic Star Wars eras.

It's well-known by now that Star Wars Battlefront 2 is looking to pull content from every corner of Star Wars canon with its multiplayer offerings.
