Star Wars Battlefront II was officially revealed today and we got a lot more information regarding the game. There will be a single-player campaign that was surprisingly absent from its predecessor that is designed to bridge the gap between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens. The multiplayer aspect will include content from the prequel, original and sequel trilogies.
According to Xbox Wire, the Xbox One version of Battlefront II will feature a two-player offline split-screen co-op mode exclusive to consoles.
