The trailer for Star Wars Battlefront 2 has leaked online, and fans couldn’t be happier. The clip focuses in on the game’s single-player campaign, which looks set to star the character that narrates the commercial.
We know that this character was an Imperial pilot at the time of the Battle of Endor, which took place at the conclusion of Return of the Jedi. From what you can see in the clip, it looks like the Empire’s defeat prompts her to try avenge the death of the Emperor. This is likely the basis for Star Wars Battlefront 2. In the trailer we see Yoda fighting Darth Maul, Kylo Ren, and even clips of the new Tie fighters.
As far as the new protagonist is concerned, fans have pointed out that she bears a striking resemblance to Rae Sloan who was an Imperial officer featured in the new canonized books and comics. The only issue with this is that Sloan was was in command of a Star Destroyer during the Battle of Endor, and we see the game’s protagonist on the planet as the Death Star explodes in the leaked clip, so this might be changing.
Other fans pointed out that the character, and the voicing bear a striking resemblance to Janina Gavankar(Sleepy Hollow, The Mysteries of Laura). Gavankar is no slouch on video game creditation either, she’s lent her talent to some pretty big names in the industry. Halo 5 Guardian’s Hunt for the truth, and Far Cry 4. She’s been posting Star Wars related suff on her Twitter timeline lately, which leads us to believe she’s going to be in the game.
check out the trailer and lend us your thoughts on it. Star Wars Battlefront 2 releases on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC & Steam this year.
