Tomorrow’s EA Play event will have a major focus on DICE’s Star Wars Battlefront II. Not only will a gameplay livestream follow the press conference, but a new trailer will be revealed. We got a very brief taste of what to expect from Electronic Arts’ unofficial E3 press conference thanks to the PlayStation Twitter account, which posted a three second clip of gameplay.
Check out the teaser below:

The full trailer will be shown tomorrow (June 10) during EA’s press conference. The show begins at 12:00 PM PT (3:30 PM ET), and afterwards players will be able to watch 40-players battle it out on Theed. Participants will be split into two teams, which will be composed primarily of gaming influencers and celebrities, with one led by StoneMountain64, and the other by Neebs Gaming. Other names confirmed for the event include JackFrags and Darkness429.
Here’s what EA had to say on their official website about the upcoming livestream:
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.
Prepare for the Assault on Theed! On June 10 at 12:30 PM PT, Darth Maul and other cross-era heroes enter the battlefield in a massive multiplayer livestream gameplay event you won’t want to miss. You might even become part of creating it.
At EA Play, you’ll be able to watch the first-ever live gameplay reveal of Star Wars Battlefront II, featuring livestream of 40-player gameplay set during the Assault on Theed – one of the new multiplayer battles from the prequel trilogy. Clone Troopers will mount a desperate defense against the invading forces of the Separatist Battle Droids. Can the Republic forces stop the relentless crawl of the massive Multi-Troop Transport as it lumbers toward the palace doors?
Star Wars Battlefront II will release November 17, 2017 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. We’ll have plenty more on the game tomorrow.
