EA's biggest game this year is certainly Star Wars Battlefront II and it's no wonder the publisher chose to dedicate over thirty minutes of its EA Play 2017 conference to the game.
Moreover, though, YouTube content creators were able to capture some gameplay beforehand and it just went live on the popular video platform, giving us a much better look at the gorgeous graphics enabled by the latest version of the Frostbite engine.
Here's JackFrags's gameplay, recorded at 1440P@60FPS. Then we have footage captured by STAR WARS HQ, showcasing all the vehicles available in Assault of Theed's map and even all the heroes.
We're going to be hosting in-game events, quests, and challenges to keep things fresh. There are also going to be Seasons, the first of which releases in December inspired by Star Wars: The Last Jedi. And, strap yourselves in: this content will be free for everyone who plays Star Wars Battlefront II.
Every player who owns Star Wars Battlefront II will have access to the same iconic characters, planetary conflicts, sleek starfighters, and epic space battles throughout the entirety of the post-release support period. This starts with the Star Wars: The Last Jedi Season coming this December, where all Star Wars Battlefront II players will get access to Finn, Captain Phasma, the new planet Crait, and more.
These new heroes will come with new Star Cards as well. Star Wars Battlefront II players will also be able to customize their favorite heroes and classes using Star Cards, which come in four rarities: Common, Uncommon, Rare, and Epic – all of which can be earned through play. Completing the in-game quests and challenges, taking part in events, and opening Crates can all grant Star Cards, which allow you to further customize your trooper, hero, and starfighter abilities.
Finally, here's the official gameplay trailer published on the EA Star Wars YouTube channel. The game is out on November 17th for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
