The Star Wars franchise made a triumphant return in recent years, starting with the Force Awakens in 2015 and Rogue One last year.

The pop culture phenomenon was once again welcomed positively by the masses, and it comes as no surprise that a follow up of its video game adaptation, “Star Wars: Battlefront”, will soon be released as well.

Gaming titan EA, as per Business Insider, finally divulged details of the highly anticipated sequel, starting with the game’s new star—a heroine named Iden Versio.

According to EA, the intergalactic bad-ass chick will lead a special forces unit called the Inferno Squad, which started havoc in Endor when the second Death Star exploded.

Unlike its predecessor which focused mainly on multiplayer battles, “Battlefront II” will have a narrative-driven, single-player story campaign.

Aside from Iden, users will also be able control the franchise’s most familiar faces, including the likes of Anakin Skywalker and Kylo Ren.

Another facet of the upcoming game will be a much improved space battles feature, which will once again bring the multiplayer mode to new heights.

“Players can drop into the cockpit of the galaxy’s most iconic ships, weave between asteroid fields and fly through imperial dockyards in high stakes dogfights,” EA described the feature.

But perhaps its most endearing update will be a  larger scale for online battles, which will now reportedly support 40 players at a time.

“Star Wars: Battlefront II” will be made available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC, and will hit gaming stores worldwide on November 17.
