The Star Wars: Battlefront II Assault on Theed Live Stream will begin at 12:30 p.m. PST / 3:30 p.m. EST
Star Wars: Battlefront II is one of the most anticipated games of the year, so it makes sense that publisher Electronic Arts would promote it as much as possible. While there will surely be some big reveals of Star Wars: Battlefront II during the EA press conference, developer DICE are hosting a full gameplay session after the event. Dubbed “Assault on Theed” this 20 vs 20 match will take place on the planet of Naboo from Star Wars Episode I – The Phantom Menace. Set during the retaking of Naboo’s capital city, players will get to see a variety of different heroes and soldier classes in action.
Viewers will also get a glimpse at the new Galactic Assault game mode, along with the game’s new progression system. New vehicles such as the Naboo Starfighter will be shown so it will be interesting to see what role tanks and spacecraft have in Star Wars: Battlefront II.
There will also be a number of popular streamers and YouTubers participating in this live stream. Here are some of the people that will be playing:
- Neebs Gaming
- Stone Mountain 64
- Achievement Hunter
- Game Theorist
- Battlefront Updates
- Typical Gamer
- Jesse Wellens
- Rachael Ballinger
This special live stream will be directly following the EA Press Conference that starts at 12:00 p.m. PST / 3:00 p.m. EST. During the actual conference, we fully expect to see titles like The Sims 4, Madden 18, FIFA 18, and a variety of different mobile titles. There has been no word on Mass Effect: Andromeda making an appearance, but do expect some info on Battlefield 1’s upcoming expansion.
For those looking to just catch the Star Wars gameplay segment, you will need to tune in after the conference has ended.
