Battlefront II will feature more eras and characters than ever before, playable in both a campaign mode and an improved multiplayer mode. Even better, it looks like EA is correcting what many saw as the shortfalls of the first game.
Battlefront II’s campaign will take place in the 30-year period between the end of Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens. The story will follow protagonist Iden Versio, who leads an elite Imperial unit called Inferno Squad, and players will get the chance to play as well-known characters like Luke Skywalker and Kylo Ren during the campaign.Check out the trailer here.
According to EA, the campaign is developed by former Ubisoft Toronto head Jade Raymond’s Motive studio, and new characters have been created “in close partnership with the story group at Lucasfilm.” On stage at Celebration, Lucasfilm confirmed that Battlefront II's story will be canon within the Star Wars universe.
Battlefront II’s multiplayer, meanwhile, is once again developed by DICE, who developed the first game. Battlefront II’s multiplayer will span all three eras of Star Wars films and will have playable heroes and villains including Rey, Luke, Yoda, Darth Maul, and more. Modes will support up to 40 players, and maps announced so far include Yavin 4, Mos Eisley, and Starkiller Base.
Star Wars™ Battlefront™ II will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on November 17, 2017.
