According to code found embedded on the official EA website, the Star Wars: Battlefront game will be released on 17th November 2015. Video gaming site VideoGamer took a screenshot of the code, revealing the launch date of the PC, PS4 and Xbox One game, before it was edited out. We will be officially informed of the launch date and see a full gameplay trailer for the new Star Wars game shortly after 6.30pm UK time today, just a few hours away.

As you can see from the screenshot above, EA's official Star Wars: Battlefront website contained the text "…Available November 17, 2015 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC," until it was edited out. It was already known that EA was targeting the 'Holiday 2015' period with the game.

The internet, notably social media, has been going crazy over the latest Star Wars trailer. The Star Wars: The Force Awakens Official Teaser #2 was published yesterday and most fans are very excited by what they can see. This film, directed by "visionary director J.J. Abrams," will debut in cinemas on 18th December 2015.

While the official gameplay trailer for Star Wars: Battlefront will debut on YouTube tonight (6.30pm in the UK) you can already see about 10s of the game in a (small) thumbnail video display at the end of the above embedded trailer. If you want to go straight to that content skip forward to 1minute 48seconds.

The Endor moon forest combat footage may look like CGI but he game's lead level designer Dennis Brännvall confirmed that it is indeed in-game footage. EuroGamer notes that Brännvall took to Twitter to say "Yes, that is actually what the game looks like." He later clarified "That's not CGI."

Finally, for now, below is the first screenshot from the game, showing a Stormtrooper riding an Imperial Speeder has been published by EA. You can see it below. Remember to check the Star Wars: Battlefront site again after 6.30pm UK time to see the gameplay video.

It looks interesting although not sure if it was the IQ of the video I watched but it didn't seem as detailed as BF4, even though it's pretty much running on the same engine.
Aww hell yeah. I loved battlefront, in fact I was playing #2 last week.

Really? That forest scene looks so much nicer than anything I've seen on BF4.

I can't help getting really excited about both the film & the game…I hear that opening music, & I'm 7 years old again, watching Star Wars for the first time! Yep…I'm that old! I just hope my hopes aren't dashed like they were with the prequels. I still haven't forgiven them for Jar jar binks…:shocked2:
Think I'll be watching Star Wars from beginning to end and getting the missus hooked, she doesn't know what the big fuss is all about lol.
Anyone got any predicitons for the framerate of the console version of this game? I'm prediticing an EXTREMELY CINEMATIC 20fps with the occasional touch on 30fps.
