Star Wars fans are eager to see how EA and developer DICE build off of 2015's Star Wars Battlefront, and on June 10th (at 12:30 pm Pacific) they'll get to see a 40-player Assault on Theed battle transpire over a special livestream.

The battle pits Republic clone troopers against Separatist battle droids as the clones try and stop a troop transport as it approaches the palace.

While this location is based around the prequel-era location of Naboo, cross-era heroes are featured such as Rey from The Force Awakens.

Our Take
Curious to see what kind of other 40-player modes the sequel contains, as the livestream's battle sounds a lot like the Walker Assault mode from the 2015 title.
