By: Benjamin Hart

Star Wars gamers have much to be excited about these days! Last week at Star Wars Celebration Orlando, Star Wars Battlefront II was officially revealed, complete with a stunning new trailer.

During the Battlefront II panel on Saturday, the creators behind the game revealed many details, including the fact that it will include a singleplayer campaign mode. The campaign will feature a brand new story focused on a band of Imperial heroes know as "Inferno Squadron" and will bridge the gap between Return Of The Jedi and The Force Awakens.

It was revealed at the panel that actress Janina Gavankar, of True Blood fame, would be portraying the game's central character, squad leader Iden Versio. Since then we have also learned of an additional cast member that will be playing another member of Inferno Squadron. Paul Blackthorne, who is best know for his role as Quentin Lance in the long running DC television series Arrow, will portray Gideon Hask in Star Wars Battlefront II. Blackthorne revealed the news on Twitter:

Star Wars Battlefront II will be available on Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC on November 17th! The prequel novel, Inferno Squadron, is out in booksellers on July 25th.
