Despite being scheduled for a later date this week, a trailer for the upcoming "Star Wars" video game came out online through an ad from Sony.
A report from Gamespot confirmed that the first trailer for "Star Wars Battlefront II" was leaked ahead of its intended unveiling on the "Star Wars" Celebration event scheduled on April 15 in Orlando. The video, which is narrated by a female soldier, confirmed that a story campaign featuring the "the untold soldier's story" will be part of the game. The soldier narrating in the video will likely be the game's protagonist.
Moreover, players will still be treated to multiplayer battles that have made its 2015 sequel famous. Furthermore, the leaked video also showed some of the key characters in the sequel, such as Rey, Kylo Ren, Yoda, and Darth Maul. The addition of such characters expands the game's reach, covering some of the movie's prequels, as well as "The Force Awakens."
As for the locations, some of the more notable ones featured in the game include Hoth and the Starkiller Base, while fans can expect fantastic space battles, which were deemed lacking in its predecessor.
Meanwhile, a report from Forbes mentioned that players who will pre-order the game will also receive exclusive content from "The Last Jedi" while an offline version will also be available, giving players more options as far as choosing different modes in varying difficulties. In addition, the report also said that there are rumors suggesting that a 4K optimized edition of "Battlefront II" will come out in Microsoft's Xbox One Project Scorpio, which is slated to be released during the holiday season.
"Star Wars Battlefront II" from video game developer EA is originally scheduled to roll out in winter of 2017, with its first trailer lined up for unveiling during the "Star Wars" Celebration this week as part of a panel titled "The Galaxy-wide Premiere of Star Wars Battlefront II."
