It’s been a wild week for eagle-eyed fans of Star Wars Battlefront II. On Wednesday they thought they spotted an unannounced droid in the background of some new official artwork for the game. A rep for the game threw cold water on that theory but then clarified today that, actually, these both were and weren’t the…
The Empire is without an emperor. Last week, a Star Wars Battlefront II update apparently brought back the evil Emperor Palpatine’s game-breaking ability to shoot lightning through walls. An emergency fix completely removed him from the game, and it’s unclear when he’ll return.

Here’s a comparison between Star Wars Battlefront II running on Xbox One and Xbox One X, courtesy of YouTuber ElAnalistaDeBits. It’s a great example of the difference high-resolution textures make. Looks so clean and crisp, doesn’t it?
Star Wars: Battlefront II is definitely happening and it will have a single-player story (if you still had any doubts). EA officially “announced” the game at this year’s Star Wars Celebration, showing off the game’s protagonist and aerial combat. It’ll be out this year on November 17 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
