EA has announced a livestream event to show off the gameplay of Star Wars: Battlefront II's Assault on Theed mission in action which will coincide with EA Play on June 10th. Because EA seems to hate their fans, the Battlefront II stream will air at 12:30 pm PT, but will be included in the EA Play event as well. So if you want to see all of what EA is offering in the upcoming year, you may as well stick around for the whole show which starts at 12 pm PT. Or catch just the Battlefront II gameplay reveal at 12:30pm.
The stream will feature the Assault on Theed mission, which involves:
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 Jumptroopers 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.
Darth Maul and other cross-era heroes like Rey will enter the battlefield in a massive multiplayer livestream gameplay event.
While the full details are still a bit unclear and we don't have a link to the stream, we do know that the stream will feature a mix of your favorite Star Wars: Battlefront II Game Changers, YouTube stars, and Twitch streamers, from JackFrags to Darkness429. They'll be forming two teams of 20, led by StoneMountain64 and Neebs Gaming, to play the game in it's first gameplay reveal. While we don't have a link to the stream just yet, here's a link to EA's twitch page for Battlefront II which will most likely be hosting the stream. Considering this is also part of EA Play, the main EA twitch is also a likely host.
