Today during the D23 Expo Level Up! Games Presentation, we received some new information about EA and DICE’s upcoming shooter Star Wars Battlefront II. More specifically, we learned a bit more about what we can expect to see in the sequel’s newly added campaign mode.
The segment of the show dedicated to Battlefront II was accompanied by Janina Gavankar, who plays the main character of Iden Versio in the game’s new Imperial-focused campaign. Gavankar previously hosted the Battlefront II segment of EA Play which took place last month in the days before E3. Alongside Steve Blank from Lucasfilm, Gavankar talked about her role as Versio before revealing a new “Behind the Story” video for Battlefront II’s campaign.
In this video, we get a look at some more cutscene footage of Versio and some other members of the new Inferno Squad. We also get some quick peaks at Gavankar and other actors recording capture footage for Battlefront II. Additionally, famed Star Wars planets like Endor, Coruscant, were featured as well as the new Vardos — which is Versio’s home planet.
Up until this point, we have really only seen extended looks at the multiplayer portion of Battlefront II so it’s nice to see a bit more about what we can expect from the campaign that so many asked for. If you’d like to check out today’s video for yourself, you can find it below. Battlefront II is slated to release on November 17 for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
