‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’: Rey’s Abilities Revealed Via ‘Battefront 2’ Video Game?

Star Wars: The Last Jedi debuts at the end of this year, but don’t forget EA’s upcoming sequel Battlefront 2. Rey’s abilities were revealed for the game, so it’s suspected these same abilities will come to light when The Last Jedi hits theaters. The game releases in November, which is so close to the Lucasfilm movie’s release date.

Character descriptions and abilities from the game were revealed, and a nice photo of Rey was also displayed. Skins for her, as well as Kylo Ren, will also be available. The most interesting part of Rey’s Jedi powers was mentioned to be a dash strike, where she charges towards her enemies with a light saber. The next ability is mind trick where Rey causes enemies within close proximity to be confused for a certain time period. Rey’s third ability is insight, which allows her to get a sense of her environment. This will also highlight nearby enemies.

This latter Jedi ability may remind those who saw The Force Awakens after she touched Luke Skywalker’s lightsaber. Of course, it didn’t have anything to do with sensing nearby enemies, but it did get her caught up on what Luke has been up to.


The commentator of the Stupendous Wave YouTube channel figured the insight ability will be very useful, but these three highlighted abilities may cause others to ponder what to expect in December when the movie releases. Speaking of the aforementioned skins that Rey is wearing, these were said to be coming up in DLCs after the film releases. Bleeding Cool mentioned how Rey may not be fully trained considering her Battlefront 2 abilities aren’t much to write home about. So it seems that this game is aligned with the Rey’s Jedi training in the movie. After all, she just arrived and met up with Luke Skywalker, right?

Star Wars: The Last Jedi’s advertised products were always being reported as some kind of hint to future films such as toy ships and action figures.

So there is no getting way from potential spoilers if you’re an avid toy shopper. Of course, spoilers are probably considered subjective by definition, as some may see these products as teases of things to come.
