Everything About Star Wars Battlefront 2 – Single Player, Multiplayer, Story & More
Star Wars fans can rejoice in 2017 since they won’t only be getting a second movie but also a brand new Star Wars Battlefront game. With a new name, Star Wars Battlefront 2, EA and Dice have taken the game to a whole other level. Which means they will hopefully fix some of the issues that plagued the last installment.
Why Star Wars Battlefront Failed?
Some of the issues that brought down the appeal and enjoyment of the last game were the lack of a story driven single player mode, lack of character customization, and an unreasonable lack of weapons. The worst part was if you wanted any of this “more” then you would have to pay for DLC content that should have been part of the original game
What’s New In Star Wars Battlefront 2?
From what we’ve seen and heard from EA, Star Wars Battlefront 2 will contain 3 times more content than the original game with a better focus on single player mode and have a powerful narrative. As far as the story is concerned, it will reportedly take place between the return of the Jedi and the force awakens which alone is more than enough to make it worth the purchase in my opinion.
Star Wars Battlefront 2 – Multi-Era Characters
Another interesting fact is that you will be able to play as characters from all eras of the franchise. The International trailer and gameplay showed quite a few characters from different timelines in action, which included kylo Ren and Darth Maul. This means that if you ever wanted to play as Rey, then this is the year your dream comes true!
Star Wars Battlefront 2 – Classes Are Back!
Class based gameplay is back and looks better than ever. In the Battlefront games from the early 2000’s, players could choose their character class but since Dice gained the Battlefront license in 2015 the company decided to leave the class system behind to opt for a character avatar model. Star Wars Battlefront you will have 4 Trooper classes that will be based on different range and firepower which adds a bit more variety than the last Battlefront game was lacking. The four Trooper classes are assault which are soldiers, heavy which are artillery, officer which are engineer, & specialist which are sniper each with their own unique abilities.
Star Wars Battlefront 2 – Multiplayer
As of now there’s only been one mode announced for Star Wars Battlefront 2 – Galactic assault. This is a completely new game mode that splits over two phases. In the first phase the attacking team has to escort a vehicle to a point and if they succeed, phase 2 starts. In phase 2, the defenders need to repel an assault in a newly unlocked Area on the map. It is expected that some if not most of the modes Star Wars Battlefront had by the end of its run will make their way into the final release of Battlefront 2.
Star Wars Battlefront 2 – Beta & Game Release Date
Star Wars Battlefront 2 is expected to release on November 17. If you can’t wait to get your hands on the game EA has confirmed that the game will receive a beta access on the PS4, Xbox One & PC from October 6 and close on October 9.
