EA showed off Star Wars Battlefront II‘s multiplayer for the first time during the EA Play event in Los Angeles.

The reveal was made with a trailer that showcases Naboo for the first time in the series, as well as some new characters that will be playable like Darth Maul, Kylo Ren, Boba Fett, Yoda, and Rey.

Battlefront II seeks to address all the issues that players had with the first game. In fact, EA is boasting that this new game has three times more content than the first one did. Battlefront II has more weapons, customization options, power-ups, etc. EA even claims that the gunplay has been retooled to feel better than ever.

After the game comes out, additional maps, characters, and vehicles will all be released for free. EA is referring to the game’s content launches as “seasons” and will keep the game fresh in between “seasons” by offering daily challenges, quests, and more to reward and incentivize players. The first content release will be out in December, and will feature content related to Star Wars: The Last Jedi. This first release will include characters Finn and Captain Phasma, as well as new planet Crait.

Star Wars Battlefront II will also offer split screen co-op for online matches, not just horde mode, though this feature will unfortunately be exclusive to console versions of the game.

For a deeper look at the game’s multiplayer, here is IGN’s video featuring a full match on the “Assault on Theed” map that will be included in the game.

Star Wars Battlefront II will release on November 17, 2017 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Those that pre-order the game will gain early access to a beta sometime later this year.
