EA has released a new trailer for its upcoming space shooter, Star Wars Battlefront II.

It's only a month and a half until Star Wars Battlefront II hits shelves, and the hype is real.

EA has released a almost 5-minute-long trailer for the game that is narrated by none other than John Boyega, one of the stars of Star Wars: The Force Awakens and the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Perhaps most impressive is that EA claims Battlefront 2 will pack triple the number of locations, heroes, and vehicles over the first Battlefront game.

Some of the highlights further teased [VIDEO] Battle Points, the in-game currency and the Arcade mode, which supports offline and online as well as split-screen.

"Arcade is a new mode allowing you to take on AI enemies and hone your skills across a variety of scenarios".

The Beta will provide a small taste of Arcade on the Theed map, but the full version will have you test your wits and reflexes in all three eras of Star Wars. There's no question that EA and DICE have poured a lot more into this sequel than you might have originally expected, although some changes might not sit too well with you.

The game also ships with an all-new singleplayer campaign which is mainly played through the eyes of Imperial Commander Iden Versio, though she is not expected to be the only playable character.

John Boyega, who plays turncoat Stormtrooper Finn in the latter Star Wars movies, is a big fan of video games. You can also opt to jump into a Battle Scenario, which are pre-built matches. Or, you can use the BP to call in of the game's dozen plus Heroes, which range from Darth Maul and Rey to Boba Fett and Han Solo, and their abilities can be customized as well.
