New title combines guns, lightsabres and spacecraft

Enough with the trailers - gameplay videos are the best indication of what to expect from a game (if a little airbrushed), and judging by the one for Star Wars Battlefront EA just dropped at E3, the game is going to be a worthy follow-up to its predecessor.

While footage released previously was made using the game's engine but pre-rendered, this is said to be ripped straight from actual PS4 gameplay, and is gloriously frantic.

While the ground-based warfare looks intense it’s the aerial stuff I'm excited for, and here we get a good look at flying TIE fighters both in third-person and from inside the cockpit.

The trailer finishes with an impressive (if a little cut scene-based) lightsaber duel, as Luke Skywalker arrives to clash with Darth Vader right in the middle of the battle.

Fans of the Battlefield series have been pining for a new instalment for over a decade, and while EA have a habit of disappointing fans, the pressure is surely on to deliver a quality game given the massive push Disney is giving the Star Wars franchise with the films right now.

Star Wars: Battlefront will be released 17 November, 2015.
