Our next Star Wars Battlefront will be even bigger, taking players into more locations, and allowing them to play with more heroes and characters across multiple Star Wars eras. There will be new ways to play, including an all-new single player campaign, and much, much more that we're excited to share with our players in the months ahead. To build a game of this magnitude, we've brought together three great studios -- DICE, Motive, and Criterion -- and aligned their areas of expertise to deliver an amazing experience in the next Star Wars Battlefront.
Leaked trailer:

Full reveal trailer (and hopefully gameplay) at Star Wars Celebration 2017, April 15th at 6:30pm GMT

Mmm. I wouldn't mind playing a nice single player campaign in that universe. Probably be some half arsed tack on.

Terrible pop in at the beginning of that trailer :D

That's what I'm concerned about. I'd be down with a solid single player component but I'm betting on a half assed 4-6 hour campaign that is essentially the multiplayer game with bots. I'll be so happy if I'm wrong though!

Well you guys haven't read/watched the links have you ;)

The single player campaign follows the commander of Inferno Squad commander Iden Versio (played by Sleepy Hollow's Janina Gavankar) through 30 years of her life, going from her origins in the prequel era, the aftemath of Endor and into the First Order era with Kylo Ren.

You'll also get to see what happened to Luke and other 'heroes' in the years between the prequel and original trilogy eras.

And best of all IT'S CANON :D :D :D

Iden has her own squad on Land and Space, they mentioned her being there before/after key moments in the main series and witnessing them herself.

I'll judge by what the finished game is, not what EA (the most trusted of publisher) says I'm afraid. Battlefield anyone? Short single player campaigns that are barely worth it compared to the main part of the game - the multiplayer. I'll be glad if it turns out good, I'm just not holding my breath at this moment.
Also kinda gutted that it takes place after Return of the Jedi. I'd love to have had a Battlefront style "best of" parts of the movies (basically a set of set pieces that take you from episode 1-8) - I think the original Battlefront did that?
I actually enjoyed the newest Battlefront though, it was simple enough for me to get into, plus it looked amazing and the sound direction was fantastic. But I tire of multiplayer games quick for whatever reason (well, apart from Destiny) so if the single player is over quick I don't think I can justify the asking price at launch, especially with so many big games out around the time. Hope I'm priced wrong though, an epic single player SW adventure is totally something that I want.

I get what you're saying, I just have more faith in EA's new studio (Motive) to handle the Campaign I guess, Battlefield 1's 'war stories' were pretty good too, not great but definitely a huge step up from BF3/BF4's mediocre attempts.

The fact it's canon makes it a must play for me regardless of whether it's 6 or 20 hours long.

As for the MP side, I got burnt out on the original pretty quickly too, after around 20 hours, the depth just wasn't there for me to continue to invest time in it but it sounds like they've remedied that in this too by putting out more maps and having character classes and deeper customisation of weapons etc.

I'm a huge Star Wars fan so I was always going to get this, and I'll wait to see gameplay footage before blowing my load but at the moment the signs are very positive and I'm officially on board the hype train.

Judging by Amazon this game is pre-ordered out the ass already

Just watched some of the open beta. This game looks like dog shit.

Having actually played it I'm pleased to report it's definitely not dog shit, and if you're a Star Wars fan its pure fan service.
