EA has published a lengthy trailer showing off the upcoming Star Wars Battlefront II. The nearly five minutes long video is narrated by John Boyega, the actor who played Finn in Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015).

Entitled 'This is Star Wars Battlefront 2', the video shows a large game with 18 playable locations, 14 playable heroes, and 39 vehicles - all greatly increased compared to the original game. However EA hasn't turned everything to 11, there are less game modes this time around; five compared to nine multiplayer modes in the original.

Perhaps the most welcome news is the single player campaign which tells an "untold story, which bridges the gap between the events between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens," as the voiceover says. The video, embedded below, is definitely worth a watch and is indeed a thorough outline of what will be delivered in the game when released.

Loving that my old fx8350 is hitting recommended! Looking forward to this!
Minimal and recommend Intel CPU's seem a bit far fetched, pretty sure ideal minimal to run would be an i5 Haswell 4690K even that would blow the pants off the FX-6350
Apparently no paid for DLC either so looking pretty good.
there is nothing more lame then star wars

Only reason the 8350 is recommended is because Dev's are lazy and haven't tested Ryzen processors for AMD's side of CPU system requirements, and because they dont want to hear owners of FX processeors complain about not meeting minimum requirements.
