All wings report in! Here's a blazing new Gamescom promo for Star Wars Battlefront II, taking fans inside the outer space insanity of its breathtaking Starfighter Assault Mode.

Tomorrow, Aug. 22, EA is presenting a live-streaming event of this spectacular game's Starfighter Assault feature from the Gamescom video game trade fair in Cologne, Germany, starting at 9:30 a.m. PT. During the global convention, EA and Dice Studio will introduce the world to more of the Death Star debris fields over Endor, the Fondor Imperial Shipyard, a massive Lucrehulk battleship, Kamino's research outpost, multiple generations of legendary ships, and heroic starfighter classes allowing creative customizations.

Here's the full game's official description:

"Featuring new characters created by Motive in close partnership with the story group at Lucasfilm, the Star Wars Battlefront II single player campaign will deliver a new exciting story to the Star Wars universe. Taking place in the 30 years between the destruction of Death Star II and through the rise of the First Order, the single player story introduces Iden Versio, the leader of Inferno Squad, an elite special forces unit of the Galactic Empire, who are equally lethal on the ground and in space. In addition to Iden, players will also encounter and play as other iconic Star Wars heroes and villains like Luke Skywalker and Kylo Ren during the campaign.

"In addition to the all-new single player campaign, the team at DICE is evolving the game’s multiplayer to become the ultimate Star Wars battleground. With modes supporting up to 40 players, Star Wars Battlefront II takes fans through a wide range of iconic locations from all three eras: prequel, classic and new trilogy, including new in-game locations such as Yavin 4’s jungle canopies, the spaceport town of Mos Eisley, and Starkiller Base. Players can choose from an array of land and air vehicles and master their own hero’s journey, with customizable character progression across heroes, villains, troopers and starfighters."

Strap in and target the Battlefront II gameplay promo above, and tell us if you'll leap aboard this new title from EA and Dice when it launches into our orbit on Nov. 17 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and on Origin for PC. Hang on back there!
