Now that the trailer is out and we've had some time to go over it and hear online from a couple people who have been to E3, were ready to break down all the info we have. We did a bunch of this on state of the BFC this week and you can watch that at this timestamp here: State of the BFC S3e4 E3 Talk Go to 57:55 if the timestamp doesn't work for you.
The first thing to say is that this first trailer is of AT-AT Walker Assault, which is a 20 on 20 mode. The trailer is labeled as Pre Alpha Gameplay, despite how polished the game looks, and it is running on a PS4.

Heres a couple more pieces of information I have from scattered places which I can source more specifically later:
- The multiplayer game modes are titled Walker Assault, Supremacy, Fighter Squadron, Blast, Drop Zone, Cargo. There are, "to be announced in the months ahead".
- Drop Zone is the 4v4 game mode according to this article, "a close quarters, infantry only 8-player mode called Drop Zone".
- The game seems to have a skilled reload option, where pressing square at a certain time in overheat significantly reduces the time between firing one clip and the next.
- When a snow speeder grapples an AT-AT, the pilot of the speeder controls a mini game to stay grappled, instead of flying in circles.
- Power ups can contain vehicles, weapons, and heroes.
- There will be no collectors editions acceding to the EAStarWars twitter. Deluxe edition will be it.
- D-Pad down will toggle between 1st and 3rd person and left and right on the D-Pad to toggle shoulder views in third person.
- Jedi must be played in third person.
- The jump button is on X on the PS4 controller according to some guy on reddit who played it.
- At the very least, there will be Jedi 1v1s in the Hero Battle Missions.
- This instagram video from EA shows footage. There is 1 empty station that shows the spawn in screen but I can't quite pause it on a frame where the text isn't blurry: Click Here for Video
- We get to see more next month at Comic Con! Source
