Hands up who’s excited about the new Star Wars game? There’s still a way to go before Star Wars: Battlefront hits our consoles, with the finished product due for launch on November 17th in the US, 19th in Europe and 20th in the UK, but that doesn’t mean we can’t look forward to it.

So what’s on the way for fans? Battles on Endor, Hoth and Tatooine, it seems, with a trip to the previously unexplored Sullust also on the cards. If you prefer multiplayer, you can battle against the hordes in a 40-person competitive multiplayer; likewise, solo missions are available if you like to take the lonely road.

In between, you have co-op missions online, or split screen with friends offline. And you can play as Darth Vader and Boba Fett. We can’t all be Jedi, but when you can, always be Darth. Come over to the Dark Side.

Here’s the full-length trailer to whet your appetite.
