1. Star Wars Battlefront IIWith the recent announcement of Star Wars Battlefront II from DICE and Electronic Arts, a lot of people have made different judgments about this new Battlefront reboot.
As a huge Star Wars fan myself, and as the original games were a true favorite of mine, I do have rather positive judgement over this second reboot.
I also rather enjoyed the first Star Wars Battlefront DICE made, and while I did find a lot of things/features lacking it was still enjoyable for me. But with this sequel a lot of those points I and a lot of other fans found lacking are now getting filled in and extended upon!
A couple days before the true announcement, there was a preview trailed leaked. This already stated a quite huge hype around the whole game in the series.
But for those who did not see the full trailer yet, have a look at the various amazing scenes presented here!

5. The Future of this FranchiseSo what do you think about this new Star Wars Battlefront title, will you buy this addition compared to the first one. Did you purchase the first one but did like/dislike. And how do you see the future of these game series?
A couple questions still remain, but for what we've already been shown from this game, for me it looks already overly impressive and I know for sure that I'm going to purchase this sometime soon!
I hope we will see some features or gameplay when Gamescom 2017 comes around. But in general I am quite excited to see what this sequel will have to offer when it is released a good month before the new Star Wars Movie: The Last Jedi.
