A new Star Wars game is set to be unveiled at Star Wars Celebration in April in California, USA.

Star Wars Game 1

Electronic Arts will be releasing Star Wars Battlefront at the popular semi-annual Star Wars convention happening in April:

We’re thrilled to share that Star Wars Battlefront will be taking part in Star Wars Celebration next month in Anaheim, CA from April 16-29. We could not think of a better or more appropriate place to debut the game officially for the first time than the premier event that celebrates the Star Wars universe and the legions of fans who have fallen in love with it.

After Star Wars was bought by Disney in October 2012, Disney and EA entered into a 10 year deal with Disney to exclusively develop certain Star Wars games in collaboration with DICE, BioWare and Visceral. The first collaboration comes with DICE who has created Star Wars Battlefront. In Battlefront you can choose to either join the Rebel Alliance or the Evil Galactic Empire and you will move up in the ranks of your chosen path by engaging in Star Wars battles on popular planets fans will recognise from the movies. You will be able to fight one-on-one against stormtroopers and you can fly your favourite Star Wars spaceships, like Snowspeeders and Speeder Bikes.

The premier of this new Star Wars game is just one of the many exciting things to look forward to at this year’s Star Wars Celebration. The convention is sure to thrill fans of everything Stars Wars. The event will be opened by Stars Wars: The Force Awakens director and co-writer, J.J. Abrams, with the official Star Wars Celebration site stating that Abrams and producer, Kathleen Kennedy will “kick off the show in a big way“. The site goes on to tease that it will be a “day long remembered“. We can only hope to get some more deets on Star Wars: The Force Awakens especially because the last taste we got anything was in November last year when the first 88-second teaser trailer was released.

Other great things Star Wars Celebration will feature this year include a first-ever 3D screening of Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and a kick-ass art show.
