Star Wars: Battlefront 2 trailer leaks via Sony's PlayStation YouTube channel
Thursday 13 April 2017 - 11:09 BST
The reveal trailer for the upcoming sequel to EA Games' Star Wars Battlefront, Star Wars: Battlefront 2, was released early via Sony's official PlayStation YouTube channel. It is the second time within a week that a trailer was released too early.
The first trailer for the game, which was scheduled to be shown during the Star Wars Celebration in Orlando, Florida, USA, on April 15th 2017, only features computed-generated imagery and does not feature actual gameplay.
The game will contain content from the prequels as well as the new trilogy and includes characters such as Yoda, Rey, Darth Maul and Kylo Ren.
As usual with titles from EA Games, the game will also feature unnecessary pre-order content in the form of unlocks for several hero characters from Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
The early release of the trailer is the second time that Sony's official PlayStation YouTube channel "accidentally" released a trailer too early. Last monday the channel released a trailer for the Overwatch Uprising event a day early.
Star Wars: Battlefront 2 is expected to launch in the fall of 2017 for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
