The game will span all three Star Wars eras, and includes free content to keep players engaged "for years to come". A film plays with comments from some Twitch streamers of the game talking about their experiences and why they like it, set to the classic BF theme. However, EA didn't mention either game at EA Play, and it sounds like we'll have to keep waiting for more concrete information. Here's the latest on what gamers are looking forward to based on the exciting new trailer video below. It will feature a story mode wedged between the end of the second movie trilogy and the beginning of the third, and it features content from all three eras of the Star Wars universe.
Amy Hennig, senior creative director at Visceral, is heading up the studio's Star Wars title.
Expect FIFA 18, Star Wars Battlefront II, Need for Speed and more titles to make an appearance. Free expansions will keep more players playing for longer, and that in turn will mean more opportunities for EA to sell crates. Star Wars Battlefront II will allow players to experience the untold story of an Imperial elite special forces soldier in an all-new single player campaign.

In the Name of the Tsar, coming in September, brings the game to the eastern front, delivering six new maps and new playable units. Additionally, when taking the fight to space, players can upgrade to the Star Wars: The Last Jedi Millennium Falcon and a new First Order ship.
