The first trailer for Star Wars Battlefront has been released. Why, there it is, right up there above this text, waiting to be watched!

Boy, it's gorgeous, isn't it? So gorgeous and perfectly scripted and composed that it gives us very little idea of what it feels like to play Battlefront. I at least appreciate the tone: big, playful, and loud.

Wes is at the Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim this week, and wrote all about the reveal this morning. We also learned that space battles won't be a focus and that the largest battles will involve 40 players.

Tyler grew up in Silicon Valley alongside Apple and Microsoft, playing games like Zork and Arkanoid on the early personal computers his parents brought home. He was later captivated by Myst, SimCity, Civilization, Command & Conquer, Bushido Blade (yeah, he had Bleem!), and all the shooters they call "boomer shooters" now. In 2006, Tyler wrote his first professional review of a videogame: Super Dragon Ball Z for the PS2. He thought it was OK. In 2011, he joined PC Gamer, and today he's focused on the site's news coverage. After work, he practices boxing and adds to his 1,200 hours in Rocket League.
