Star Wars Battlefront II’s Space Combat to Debut at Gamescom

EA has announced that Star Wars Battlefront II’s multiplayer space combat will debut at Gamescom later this month.

EA has plans to reveal a never-before-seen trailer as well as actual gameplay of Starfighter Assault mode. EA teases:

“Teams will face off in a swirling dogfight in the Fondor: Imperial Shipyard map, weaving around an Imperial Star Destroyer complete with speedy fighters, thundering bombers, distinct hero ships, and more. Will the brave pilots of the Rebel Alliance triumph against the Imperial Navy, or will the intrepid aces of the Galactic Empire foil the insurgents’ plans?”

For those interested in the first glimpse of Battlefront II’s improved starfighter combat, you can tune in to the livestream on August 21 at 9:30am PT.

Fondor: Imperial Shipyard will join the Theed Galactic Assault map in the beta, which begins October 6th, or October 4th if you’ve pre-ordered.
