Star Wars Battlefront 2 Starfighter Assault Gameplay Trailer

Star Wars Battlefront II's Space Battles in Action

The massive MC80 Liberty type Star Cruiser drops out of hyperspace as bright lances of blaster fire streak through the blackness of space over Fondor. The Rebel Strikeforce presses its attack on the Imperial Star Destroyer and its protective screen of Light Cruisers. Between the behemoth fleets swarm dozens of tiny starfighters. Nimble A-wings pursue speedy TIE Interceptors. Flights of Y-wing attack bombers launch barrages of torpedoes in an effort to weaken the Star Destroyer's shields as squadrons of TIE/ln Fighters roar in to stop them. The war has begun!

See it all now, and much more of what's to come, in the new Star Wars Battlefront II trailer, with previews of the new Starfighter Assault mode that features improved and expanded space combat, and glimpses into the starfighter battles inspired by all three cinematic eras of Star Wars.

There's much more to see at Gamescom, with details of new hero ships and looks at the new role-based starfighters. For every breaking update, follow EA Star Wars on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. Also, be among the first to try out the new feel of starfighter combat when the beta begins on October 6 (or October 4 if you pre-order) for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Origin for PC.
