E3 is less than a couple weeks away. The final floor plans are now set and many developers are now teasing their upcoming announcements. Electronic Arts is certainly one that is guilty of hyping up their fans by recently announcing in a blog post that they are planning to present the first livestream gameplay of StarWars Battlefront II during their presentation. The developer will show off gameplay which features 2 teams of 20 pitted against one another in the Assault on Theed a new multiplayer battle set from the prequel trilogy. The blog post initially outlines the battle and gives fans a general idea of what they should expect to see during the livestream.
“Clone Troopers will mount a desperate defense against the invading forces of the Separatist Battle Droids,” the post describes the basis of the battle. “Can the Republic forces stop the relentless crawl of the massive Multi-Troop Transport as it lumbers toward the palace doors?”
EA also gives a more detailed description in the post painting a vivid picture of what players will see and experience during this battle:
“Sleek N-1 Starfighters and Vulture Droids scream overhead spewing light and fire. Nimble AT-RT Walkers race around corners, pursued by roaring AATs. Agile Clone Jet Troopers hop from rooftop to rooftop, while rampaging B2 Super Battle Droids level everything in their path. Armies of Clones and Droids sprint across cover, their blazing weapons shattering the tranquility of the once-peaceful capital of Naboo. And at the center of the swirling melee the lightsabers and Darth Maul and Rey cut swaths through the ranks of the battling troopers.”
The event will be livestreamed on Saturday June 10 at 12:30 PM PT. Star Wars Battlefront II will release in November for the Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
