As part of Disney’s D23 event this weekend, EA have unveiled a new behind-the-story peek at Star Wars: Battlefront II.

Check out our list of upcoming PC games for more future fights.

While 2015's Star Wars Battlefront focused solely on multiplayer action, this new video demonstrates how the team behind Battlefront 2 are working on the single-player campaign. It includes revealing interviews with the developers, writers, and cast.

While a Reddit thread recently leaked details of what playable heroes will be available, this video also gives an insight into the new campaign storyline, which follows Iden Versio, an Empiricist, and what happened to the Empire after Return of the Jedi. There’s also a whole bunch of concept art, environments, and in-game action, too - check it out above. 

“The story of Battlefront II is absolutely an essential story,” Steve Blank, creative executive at LucasFilms, says.

Star Wars: Battlefront II will release on November 17, 2017. If you’re on the fence about it, check out the open beta this October.

I just feel like the Empire's perspective will be trivialized or too condensed and inevitably, the protagonist will turn to the light side and the Rebellion. Hopefully not though!

The woman who toughs its out in a mans world.

But she can wear a suit of plastic and shoot walls with the best of them.

Eh? Please explain. You have a problem with the lead being a woman?

And another misogynist, who has a problem with women taking lead roles in video games.

Grow up, this is 2017. Perhaps you should seclude yourself away from the general population if you have a problem with women taking roles and positions in life that both men and women can do.
