Sony Reveals TV Advert for Star Wars Battlefront PS4 Bundle

Star Wars Battlefront is coming! On November 17, that is – and Sony has just put out a new TV commercial for the PS4 bundle that will mark the action shooter’s eagerly anticipated release.

The advert, which has been posted to the official PlayStation channel on YouTube, is undoubtedly fun to watch, featuring as it does a seemingly ordinary man who spies an old and unkempt R2-D2 figurine and immediately recalls the fun he had as a Star Wars fan throughout his childhood.

We won’t ruin the surprise by telling you what happens next – instead, you can simply watch the advert below. However, we have to admit to amusement at where Sony felt the need to place a ‘Not actual gameplay’ notice – click the play button and enjoy the chucklesome moment for yourself.

As the commercial itself makes clear, the game’s launch will be accompanied by that of a PlayStation 4 bundle including the console unit, a DualShock 4 controller and a copy of the PS4 version of Star Wars Battlefront. Sony is right – the force is indeed strong with PlayStation.
