Check out the trailer that dropped for Star Wars Battlefront II (https://vimeo.com/212842535).  The new game will span from the Prequel Trilogy era up through the current Sequel Trilogy.  Expect to see more about the new game at Star Wars Celebration Orlando later this week.

Check out some of the concept art for Battlefront II (http://www.starwarsunderworld.com/2017/04/star-wars-battlefront-ii-concept-art.html).  There are some great images from locations like Kamino and Jakku along with some others that we haven't seen before.

Check out the next trailer for BATTLEFRONT 2 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nWHQ77BZDZg) and get into the cockpit of your favorite starships!  This one take you through dogfights spanning entire saga:  In the Unknown Regions during the ST era, in orbit around Endor, and the shipyards of Fondor circa the OT, as well as around Ryloth and above Kamino during the Clone Wars.  It's pretty amazing to watch!

So, there has evidently been some backlash about features in Battlefront II (https://www.forbes.com/sites/insertcoin/2017/11/15/star-wars-battlefront-2s-loot-boxes-feel-like-a-fork-in-the-road-for-video-games/#70cdf35a6e75).  Notably on the topic of  loot boxes, crystals, or more commonly regarded as in-game micro-purchases.  Estimates are out there that purchasing ALL of the loot boxes in Battlefront II could cost gamers as much as $2000.

Check out this statement from EA about the situation (https://twitter.com/EAStarWars/status/931332890717143040)

I guess the $60 + it costs to buy the game simply wasn't enough for EA and DICE.
