The announcement was presented at the Lucasfilm Publishing panel at Star Wars Celebration Orlando last weekend. Interesting, it will cast players as an infuriated Imperial trooper - Iden Versio - who has vowed revenge on the Rebels following the destruction of the second Death Star above Endor.
Following lastweek's leak of what now turns out to be a partial trailer, the full release trailer for Star Wars Battlefront II is out. The stunning new trailer gives us a great glimpse at what to expect from the next game in the series - including the single-player story mode fans have been clamouring for. "We just don't know yet", Kennedy told Fandango magazine.
Are you disappointed we won't see Rogue One from Hera's perspective or are you glad that Ezra, Kanan and the rest of the Ghost crew will get their own ending? The sequel promises to deliver "epic" battles wherein you can pilot a First Order TIE fighter in "intense" dogfights, play as ground troopers and assume control of classic heroes and villains like Darth Maul, Yoda, Kylo Ren and Rey.
Similarly to Titanfall 2, EA does not want to fragment the multiplayer community with Battlefront 2. Space battles will also be a part of the game, where players will have access to more vehicles.
EA also confirmed that Star Wars Battlefront 2 Pre Order customers would be able to play the game early.
And now, with The Last Jedi promising to return the droid and his "master" Poe Dameron to the screen, fans can start getting hyped for more of the same adorable comedy.
All good things must come to an end.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi, otherwise known as Episode VIII, will hit United Kingdom cinemas on 15 December, so it's good timing.
