Many of us will have fond memories of growing up with Star Wars: Battlefront on the good old PS2 – and now, with a new generation of Star Wars on the horizon, the legacy (finally) continues. The new first-person-shooter from EA is expected to go on sale around the same time as the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but a new trailer hints at a full reveal of the game at Star Wars Celebration, in April 2015.
Here’s the trailer everyone’s been talking about:
Well, that speeder isn't going anywhere. Can someone give us a lift to @SW_Celebration http://t.co/srEVrAA0zl #SWCAhttps://t.co/4W4LG8myke

As you may notice, this is exactly the same trailer as the one which was released last year – so don’t get too excited. The only difference is that this latest trailer mentions the reveal date for the new Star Wars: Battlefront, in April 2015.
The game is expected to be available on all major platforms, including PC, Xbox One and PS4.
Here’s another video released by EA, which shows some behind the scenes footage:
This video is a bit more interesting, as it shows the incredible attention to detail which has gone into making the new version of Battlefront. The team has scanned the models used in the original Star Wars films and even visited the locations in order to make the game as realistic and accurate as possible. Judging by the early in-engine footage seen in the video above, the quality looks amazing.
“Above all, it is our passion for Star Wars which will bring this legacy to life, like never before.”
As the quote from the team suggests, the passion they have for Star Wars should really help ensure this title is of good quality – hopefully this will make them put in a lot of effort and care to ensure the latest version of Star Wars: Battlefront is a game to remember.
The video ends with a rather fitting quote from Yoda – you guessed it – “Do or do not. There is no try”.
We can’t wait to find out more about this game in April – hopefully our patience will be rewarded.
