A leaked PS4 ad for Star Wars Battlefront II is making the rounds, and it has some major reveals.
We weren’t supposed to learn anything new about Star Wars Battlefront II until April 15. At Star Wars Celebration, DICE was going to hold the grand reveal. However, it looks like someone jumped the gun a little early. A leaked PS4 ad has been uploaded to Vimeo, spoiling many of the upcoming secrets, and it looks like DICE is intent on fixing many of the woes of the original Star Wars Battlefront.
First off, there is a campaign. Based on the short ad, you’ll be playing as a Stormtrooper dismayed over the destruction of the Death Star. The story looks set to take place following the events of Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi as the First Order rises from the Empire’s ashes. It remains to be seen whether the campaign will encompass events from the Prequel and Sequel trilogies.
Speaking of that, the ad also finally confirms that all three eras will be playable in Star Wars Battlefront II. To prove this, the ad confirms four new heroes and villains; Darth Maul, Yoda, Rey, and Kylo Ren. Based on the footage, it looks like the Theed Generator Complex and Takodana might be playable maps. Oh, it also looks like Tauntauns are finally rideable.
Check back April 15 at 11:30 AM PT for the full reveal trailer. Star Wars Battlefront II will release this fall on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Be sure to check out the ad before EA inevitably pulls it.
