EA's Star Wars Battlefront II is making a lot of changes in comparison to its predecessor, such as introducing a single-player campaign. Recently, a new trailer released on the PlayStation Blog finally gives us a glimpse of what to expect from the story.

Battlefront II's campaign takes place between the events of Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens. Although Emperor Palpatine has been defeated, he lives on through Messenger droids. These Messengers bear the face of the dead Palpatine through a hologram. In the trailer, we see a Messenger droid giving foreboding instructions to enact the Emperor's plans of revenge.

"Early in Star Wars Battlefront II, a Messenger tasks Iden and her father, Garrick Versio, with terrifying instructions," EA writes on the PlayStation Blog. "We don’t want to reveal much more about this critical sequence, but its pretty clear that Iden’s “unusual” mission will place her on a collision course with the last wishes of the fallen Emperor."

Star Wars Battlefront launches on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC as of November 17. If you're eager to try out the game sooner, a multiplayer beta is coming October 6, or October 4 if you pre-order the game. For more on Battlefront II, check out the recently revealed Arcade mode.
