Today following Electronic Arts’ live show from Gamescom in Cologne, Germany, the publisher released a press kit including a batch of new screenshots of Star Wars Battlefront II‘s Starfighter Assault mode.

We get to see a vista of the Imperial dry dock on the Fondor map, where a Star Destroyed targeted by the Rebellion is moored. Following, you can take a look at Poe Dameron’s Black One pursued by Kylo Ren’s TIE Silencer, a Star Destroyer destroyed (pun not intended) by a squadron of X-Wing, more X-Wing facing Boba Fett’s Slave I in a shield generator tunnel and the Slave I fighting against the Millennium Falcon.

The last screenshot is interesting as it’s set in the prequel trilogy showing a droid ship assaulted by a squadron of ARC-170 starfighter. We also see Darth Maul’s Scimitar, and on the left there is a ship that definitely looks like a Delta-7 Jedi starfighter like the one piloted by Obi-Wan Kenobi, but if the recent trailer is an indication, this one is actually used by Yoda (hence the different green and white paint job, while Obi-Wan’s is red and white).

You can also check out the official trailer portraying the new mode, and some gameplay from today’s live show.

Star Wars Battlefront II releases on November 17th for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
