Star Wars 8 The Last Jedi will be coming out in December, but we will see the film’s heroes earlier. The teaser trailer for Star Wars Battlefront 2 has been leaked and it was revealed that characters from The Last Jedi are pre-order bonuses. Interestingly enough, they were called “Heroes,” just like the other lead characters in the previous Battlefront game.
These new heroes are going to be hard to guess, though players can see the teaser trailer here. It’s clear that EA knows who they are, but an eventual trailer for the movie should help fans guess, whenever that comes out. Still, it’s an exciting time to be a Star Wars fan and the game could end up being a success, especially when compared to the first.
Last Jedi, Same Heroes?
Until more details about the game are revealed, the only logical guesses for Star Wars 8 The Last Jedi heroes are the previous leads with new looks. Rey is already in the game sporting her Force Awakens attire, but she could have a new outfit in The Last Jedi. Same goes for characters like former Stormtrooper Fin and awesome pilot Poe Dameron, both of whom will be returning in the sequel.
Speaking of The Last Jedi, an elderly Luke Skywalker could be one of the game’s pre-order heroes. While he will mostly be Rey’s mentor in the film, we will likely seem him in action, so that should warrant an appearance in the game. Young Luke from Episodes 4 to 6 is probably in the game already, since he was a prominent hero in the first Battlefront game from EA.
A New Hope
Aside from the new characters that will be appearing in Star Wars 8 The Last Jedi, EA has promised a better single-player campaign. It was one of the major complaints from the first game, so it’s good to see this addressed in Star Wars Battlefront 2. The first game was considered a big disappointment, so EA has plenty of work to do to gain fan trust back.
Multiple eras of Star Wars have also been confirmed, so that should be a fun way to shoot people in the game. If anything, this should please any fan of the popular franchise, given the amount of characters and areas each era has.
Both Star Wars Battlefront 2 and Star Wars 8 The Last Jedi are slated for release this year. Expect pre-orders to be off the roof, assuming these new characters are cool of course. The official first look at Star Wars Battlefront 2 will be on April 15.
