Star Wars Battlefront II's single-player campaign will include missions where you can play as Luke Skywalker and Kylo Ren, among other heroes.
During the official Battlefront II panel at Star Wars Celebration, representatives of the teams working on the game confirmed that, while the story stars a new character, it will also include parts from other perspectives.
