Gamescom Footage Of Battlefront 2 Starfighter Assault Mode Shows 24-Player Combat

The Starfigher Assault mode starts intense, as we see a fleet of Rebel starfighters going in on a Star Destroyer. You'll play as a new character, Commander Iden Versio, leader of the Galactic Empire's elite Inferno Squad, who sees victory on Endor slip from her grasp with the destruction of the second Death Star.

The short video teaser previews several types of space ships that players will most likely encounter once the game goes live.

Fans are no doubt hungry for any Star Wars promo material they can get with Force Friday II around the corner and only a teaser trailer for Last Jedi.

In other news, EA will also let players watch the presentation of "Star Wars: Battlefront 2's" Starfighter Assault gameplay ahead of Gamescom 2017 this week.

This is the mode where you take part in space battles!

Darth Maul's Scimitar, Poe Dameron's Black One X-Wing, Slave One and the Millenium Falcon all appeared as hero ships, each with special abilities.

After DICE's Star Wars Battlefront was poorly received by fans when it came out, the game developers look to be upping the ante with their release of Star Wars Battlefront II later this year.

Starfighter Assault will receive a full gameplay reveal during the EA Live Show at Gamescom today.

EA showed off an extended look at the sequel's highly anticipated - and highly requested - Starfighter Assault game mode. Especially with the awesome news that the game will not feature a season pass or charge its player base for any DLC, which looks set to be seasonal much like it is in Overwatch.
