Our first look at Star Wars Battlefront II is coming on April 15

Star Wars fans, it's time to rejoice: our first look at Star Wars Battlefront II is nearly here. EA announced today that the sequel to the popular online shooter will make its debut on April 15.

Why April 15? That just so happens to coincide with the tail end of Star Wars Celebration, an annual conference for diehard Star Wars fans. The reveal itself is set to take place at 11:30 a.m. PT / 2:30 p.m. ET at a dedicated panel. Along with a full panel with the game's developers, the reveal will show off the game's first trailer.

It's not clear what portions of the Star Wars story and universe the sequel will focus on, but there's plenty of tantalizing material that still has yet to be covered. And while the first game drew its fair share of criticism, it's likely we'll see DICE carry feedback from the first game over to the sequel.
