If you're intrigued by the prospect of Battlefront 2 having a story, and what kind of story that might be, here's a few minutes of DICE developers and actors having a chat about it.
Uploaded over the weekend, the video talks about the basic backstories of the main characters, the early triggers for the plot twists, and how Battlefront 2 can be used as a "resource to take this information into future development projects".
Whether that means Battlefront 2 will form some sort of canon is unknown, but at the very least it's nice to have a campaign again. There's also a quick cameo of Mitch Dyer, for those who keep updated with the gaming industry's equivalent of inside baseball.
We'll get hands on with the Battlefront 2 beta in October, ahead of the game's release on November 17.
