Han Solo faces Darth Vader in new ‘Star Wars Battlefront’ trailer


EA Games has debuted a new trailer for Star Wars: Battlefront that not only offers a look at gameplay and settings but also demonstrates how players can add their own twists to the saga.

Billed as a way for fans to immersive themselves in epic battles from Star Wars, we see that won’t merely be a walk down memory lane.

Nostalgic ‘Star Wars Battlefront’ TV spot will make you feel things


If the building anticipation for the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer doesn’t have you feeling like a kid again, PlayStation’s live-action holiday commercial for Star Wars Battlefront will undoubtedly do the trick.

Delightfully nostalgic, the live-action TV spot features a bored office worker holding a battered R2-D2 action figure and reflecting on all the fun Star Wars fantasy adventures he and his brother (?) had as children. I won’t spoil the ending, but the message is pretty clear: They don’t have to end with childhood.
