Space battles shown off in Star Wars Battlefront II trailer

Also present is Darth Maul's Sith Infiltrator and Yoda's zippy little Jedi Starfighter.

We'll be at Gamescom this week, and will share our impressions of the new mode with you, so stay tuned.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 launches in the United Kingdom on October 17th.

Battlefront's space battles felt cramped and tacked on, albeit lovely, but like just about everything in Battlefront II, this iteration of the Starfighter Assault mode seems to be much more in line with what makes Star Wars, Star Wars. If you can't watch the livestream then check back for updates as we'll be publishing them here for you.

We don't get to see Luke in action for long.

United States stocks rise as North Korea anxiety eases
Gold, viewed as a safe haven for investors in troubled times, fell 0.6 percent to $1,274 an ounce. Apple, Microsoft and Facebook each rose about 1 percent in the first few minutes of trading.

The mode can be played in three different eras, which are as you might expect the prequel trilogy, the original trilogy and the current sequels.

Also featured in the trailer is Kylo Ren's TIE Striker and exploding Star Destroyers, hinting that the aerial combat will be pretty epic if nothing else. In an attempt to get out ahead of the leak, Electronic Arts officially released the trailer on its own channel.

EA is hosting a live show from Gamescom on Monday, August 21 starting at 9:30 AM PT. It is important to note, however, that the footage is not part of the title's gameplay, but instead only an in-engine video.

Space battles in Star Wars Battlefront 2 look rather cool.
