The last time that EA attempted to hype up a Star Wars: Battlefront announcement, it turned out to be Team Deathmatch, so we're not getting our hopes up for this new reveal just yet. However, an image on the franchise's official Facebook page showing an X-Wing does hold a little more promise we suppose. It's accompanied by the words: "Prepare for take off."

Our guess is that this is going to turn out to be some kind of dogfighting playlist, with Tie-Fighters and X-Wings going head to head above a series of iconic landscapes. We already know that there'll be no space combat in this release, so you can rule that out right now, but we should see the full extent of what this option has to offer at Gamescom next week.
