At EA Play, you’ll be able to watch the first-ever live gameplay reveal of Star Wars ™ Battlefront ™ II, featuring livestream of 40-player gameplay set during the Assault on Theed – one of the new multiplayer battles from the prequel trilogy. Clone Troopers will mount a desperate defense against the invading forces of the Separatist Battle Droids. Can the Republic forces stop the relentless crawl of the massive Multi-Troop Transport as it lumbers toward the palace doors?

If you fancy bagging yourself a seat at EA Play itself, then the publishing giant is offering you the chance to do just that with a competition now open on Twitter. All you have to do is tell @EAStarWars why you love to play Star Wars games. See the official site for more details.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 is scheduled for release on PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One on November 17, 2017. The sci-fi shooter will boast a number of improvements over its predecessor, chief among which includes a fully-fledged single-player campaign, something which many criticised the original for lacking. There’s also more Heroes and Villains to pick from this time, with characters such as Kylo Ren from the new Star Wars films putting in an appearance alongside veterans Luke Skywalker and Han Solo.
