EA is scheduled to formally show off a new look at Star Wars: Battlefront II later today, but we now have a close look at what the gameplay will look like, thanks to a leaked gameplay video that surfaced earlier this morning.
The 12-minute video shows off Darth Maul, Rey, and Boba Fett in action in the Naboo palace and its surrounding streets from The Phantom Menace, running through hallways as they destroy droids and clone troopers.
The footage is fast-paced, and really incredible to watch. There’s a real thrill following Darth Maul with his double-bladed lightsaber as he cuts down everyone he comes across. It also looks like you can populate a small group of helper NPCs to follow you around.
The start of the video features the EA logo, and as Polygon notes, it’s not clear exactly where the footage comes from, although the user responsible for the footage says that it’s “Absolutely not stolen.” There’s also a tag in the corner that notes that it’s a pre-alpha build.
Update: the video has been removed, but we’ll undoubtably get a better look later today.
