1. Star Wars Battlefront II

With the recent announcement of Star Wars Battlefront II from DICE and Electronic Arts, a lot of people have made different judgments about this new Battlefront reboot.

As a huge Star Wars fan myself, and as the original games were a true favorite of mine, I do have rather positive judgement over this second reboot.

I also rather enjoyed the first Star Wars Battlefront DICE made, and while I did find a lot of things/features lacking it was still enjoyable for me. But with this sequel a lot of those points I and a lot of other fans found lacking are now getting filled in and extended upon!



A couple days before the true announcement, there was a preview trailed leaked. This already stated a quite huge hype around the whole game in the series.

But for those who did not see the full trailer yet, have a look at the various amazing scenes presented here!

2. Full Length Trailer  



3. Gameplay Details

As of now various new details regarding the gameplay were announced, which a lot of fans hoped for!

This includes but is not limited to: 

3.1. Single Player

Forge a new path as Iden Versio, commander of Inferno Squad—an Imperial special forces unit equally lethal on the ground and in space. Encounter many of Star Wars ‘greatest characters in a story of revenge, betrayal, and redemption that spans 30 years.



3.2. Multiplayer

Join up to 40 players in massive multiplayer fights in authentic locations across all eras. Revel in deep class-based online gameplay, pilot a wide variety of land and air vehicles, and control iconic characters with distinct abilities that can turn the tide of battle.



3.3. Space Battles

Wage war in spectacular space battle scenarios. Weave between asteroids, fly across Imperial Dock Yards, and take down massive capital ships. Pilot renown craft like the Millennium Falcon or Luke Skywalker’s X-wing in exciting dogfights with up to 24 players.



3.4. Characters from Every Era

Play as—and against—Star Wars’ most feared villains and cherished heroes from all three eras, including Kylo Ren, Rey, Darth Maul, Yoda, and many more. Unique, upgradable abilities ensure classic characters bring their distinct powers and personality to the battle.



3.5. Split-Screen Co-Op

Team up with a friend in two-player offline split-screen play.* Earn rewards, customize troopers and heroes, then take your skills and upgrades to the online battleground. *split-screen co-op available only on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.



3.6. Customize and Progress

4. Release Date

The release date for Star Wars Battlefront 2 is set for November 9 for EA Access and Origin Access Members with the Play First Trial
OR November 14 if you pre-order the Star Wars Battlefront II: Elite Trooper Deluxe Edition on PC (Origin), Playstation 4 and Xbox One. 

For those who pre-order the Elite Trooper Deluxe Edition get an additional bonus provided, which will grants them access to exclusive content from The Last Jedi, including weapons, customs and more!



5. The Future of this Franchise

So what do you think about this new Star Wars Battlefront title, will you buy this addition compared to the first one. Did you purchase the first one but did like/dislike. And how do you see the future of these game series?

A couple questions still remain, but for what we've already been shown from this game, for me it looks already overly impressive and I know for sure that I'm going to purchase this sometime soon!

I hope we will see some features or gameplay when Gamescom 2017 comes around. But in general I am quite excited to see what this sequel will have to offer when it is released a good month before the new Star Wars Movie: The Last Jedi.

    Looks pretty good, and it's nice to see they are adding a single player campaign this time around, hopefully it'll be worth it.

    On the multiplayer side, I think calling it massive nowadays with 40 players is a bit of a strech though, they should be able to manage 60 players tbh. Whether it's 40 by design or not I don't know but 30vs30 or even 40vs40, now that would be massive. :P

    Fingers crossed so that they don't mess it all up with microtransactions. :P

    I honestly am not a fan of Star Wars at all, but I love the Frostbite engine (the engine they used in Star Wars Battlefront 2015) and if executed properly, I am sure the game can provide the fun and expectations fans are looking for in here.

    It's like they took Star Wars Battlefront II and made another one of that.

    That sounds promising, do you think they'll keep the same multiplayer mechanics as the first title?

    Mmm... toasty!
    I don't like the fact that they bailed on a strictly multiplayer game and decided to make a new one. The graphics are nice though.
