This was a feature in the original Battlefront franchise that a lot of fans appreciated. Thankfully, Battlefront 2 will be getting space battles and the gameplay has been showcased in a brand new trailer from EA.
A brand new game mode is coming to Star Wars Battlefront 2 called Starfighter Assault - this is the mode that will incorporate most of the new space gameplay. In Starfighter Assault, one team must work together to destroy a starfighter, while the other team must try to keep it alive.
Players will have the opportunity to fly through space in a number of popular Star Wars spaceships, including TIE Fighters and A-Wings.
Besides the space combat, everything else about the new Starfighter Assault mode will remain the same. This means players will be able to use various pickups spread around the arena.
Players will also get the chance to fly different spaceships that belong to the heroes in Battlefront 2. As an example, Darth Vader's unique TIE Fighter is available as a hero power-up.
Star Wars Battlefront 2 is set to launch on November 17 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. The Starfighter Assault game mode will be available at launch, alongside a number of other game modes.
Some game modes will be making a return, while a number of new game modes will be brought to the Battlefront franchise for the first time. Some games, such as the Starfighter Assault mode, will be based on game modes from the first two Battlefront games.
