One of the battle modes that was sorely missed in EA’s Star Wars Battlefront was space battles between Rebel and Imperial ships (at least until DLC rolled out). Thankfully, EA has made Starfighter Assault for Star Wars Battlefront II and has released a trailer showing off the new mode for fans.
Additionally, EA has also revealed that fans can catch a livestream demonstration of how Starfighter Assault will work on Tuesday, August 21 from Gamescon at 9:30 AM pacific time. From there, players will be able to see the new level Fondor: Imperial Shipyard as well as three eras of heroic ships, starfighter classes and customizations and more. Check out the trailer below…
