The wildly popular Star Wars Battlefront series of video games launched ten years ago, and despite great reviews of the first two offerings, it seemed like a third console game in the series would never come. A few portable system (and mobile) versions followed, but attempts by EA and LucasArts seemed to spell doom for a more robust follow-up.

Now the third main entry in the series not only has a release date, but a trailer.

Some of the most exciting things from the trailer:

  • Darth Vader showing up on Endor
  • Jet-pack propelled Boba Fett
  • The Millenium Falcon
  • Piloting a Tie Fighter
  • Coordinated attacks
  • Potentially playable Ewoks

That’s right, I listed Ewoks as something exciting. The way I see it, the Ewoks present a Home Alone type situation where they’re not strong enough to defeat the Empire’s forces on their own, they are creative enough to setup traps and pitfalls along the way to give themselves a chance. It could be really fun and challenging to take on the task.

Star Wars: Battlefront is set to be released November 17th, 2015.
