E3 UPDATE: Han Solo and Chewbaca also revealed.
The first reveal trailer for EA's Star Wars Battlefront 2 is out, giving us our first look at the characters and plot. From the looks of things, Star Wars Battlefront 2 is going to take an ambitious approach to Star Wars #VideoGames, stretching across all eras of the films and giving us an Imperial viewpoint for the game's story. But what we all want to know of course, is who's going to be in it?
All The Heroes And Villains So Far In 'Star Wars Battlefront 2'
So far, the biggest reveals character-wise are tied into the novel choice to set the game from the perspective of an Imperial soldier, or possibly soldiers, throughout all the eras and battles of the #StarWars films. This allows EA and developer #DICE access to the full gamut of characters from the movies. We've only seen a few brief snatches, but here's all the heroes and villains revealed so far:
Everyone's favorite little green Muppet (or weird CGI cartoon if you count the prequels) will be showing up and yes, he'll be wielding his lightsaber as well. The ancient Jedi master seems to be facing off against Darth Maul in the cinematic trailer, which is a bit unusual, since he's dead.
Darth Maul, also known as 'the best part of Episode 1' also shows up in the trailer, wielding his familiar double-bladed lightsaber in a battle against Yoda. Whether this appearance will be canon is unknown, since the sith apprentice died in his climactic fight. He was brought back in the clone wars CGI cartoon, but in that series he had big honking robot legs, and there's a distinct lack of clanking in the trailer.
The protagonist of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens makes a very, very brief appearance in the trailer as well. Rey's seen running through a forested battleground, apparently unarmed.
The Darth Vader fanboy and all around bad-dude Kylo Ren was the last of the major #StarWars characters to show up in the short teaser trailer. In the longer trailer, we also see him show off his force powers and unique lightsaber, before finishing the trailer with a menacing look at the camera.
We see a brief shot of young Luke Skywalker, as he's held at gunpoint and ordered to halt by the new protagonist of the game, Iden Versio during the reveal trailer for Star Wars Battlefront 2.
The main character of Star Wars Battlefront 2 is Iden Versio, an imperial special forces operative who is tasked with wiping out the partisans of Saw Gerrera, the extremist rebel leader from Rogue One.
