A new trailer has been released for Star Wars: Battlefront II. The new trailer focuses on something the first game did not have, a single-player campaign, which follows Commander Iden Versio (played by Janina Gavankar).
With the unsettling news that EA has decided to closeDead Space developer Visceral Games, and “pivot the design” of the much-anticipated single-player Star Wars game they were working on, the hopes of many of us who aren’t content will multiplayer alone lie only with this Battlefront II campaign. If it’s not surprisingly good, we’ll all be very, very sad.
On that slightly depressing note, continue below to read more about the game and watch the trailer.
