While I have been refraining from watching any trailers for the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi movie, I have not had the same restraint with Star Wars: Battlefront II. EA has released the official Battlefront 2 Campaign Trailer today, and it’s a beauty!
Battlefront 2 Campaign Trailer
For the unaware, Battlefront 2 will bring us a single-player campaign from the Empire’s perspective. EA has updated its Campaign website with further details of what we can expect.
Join Inferno Squad – The Empire’s extraordinary special operations team Inferno Squad completes the missions no one else can. Equally skilled as soldiers and starfighter pilots, Inferno Squad fights to save the Empire during its most desperate hour.
A young and brave Imperial soldier raised under the tutelage of her father, Iden’s superior abilities and gifts make her a natural leader for Inferno Squad.
It is Commander Iden Versio who we will take control over in the campaign, and her story looks very promising. The Empire and its Storm Troopers have typically been the unequivocal bad guys in the Star Wars universe. However, we have seen examples of that side come over to the Rebellion, as was the case with Finn in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Will we see something similar with Iden? Only time will tell!
Star Wars: Battlefront II has undergone some controversy lately when it was revealed that their loot box system sways a bit towards the “Pay-to-Win” spectrum. Personally, I’m not very concerned about microtransactions or loot boxes, or even the multiplayer component of this game. I’m here for the story, and I’m expecting big things!
