Well, that’s an instant pre-order from me. The trailer shows the campaign side of Star Wars Battlefront 2. You are a storm trooper commander who has just witnessed the destruction of the Death Star. After the Death Star, she states, “the real war has just begun, we must avenge the emperor”. The title will also contain will take place over the prequels, sequels and the latest releases and contain characters from all eras. Players can also take the fight online in 40 player battles. A statement features below:
“In Star Wars Battlefront II, we all wanted to really capture the essence of being heroic and how in Star Wars, anyone can become a hero,” says Matt Webster, Executive Producer at Criterion. “Whether that’s playing as an iconic character like Rey or Luke, as a front-line trooper or fighter pilot in epic multiplayer battles, or playing through a new Star Wars story that bridges the gap between Star Wars™: Return of the Jedi™ and Star Wars™: The Force Awakens™, you will become a hero in Star Wars Battlefront II.
“EA has assembled an incredible set of developers to create a Star Wars gaming experience unlike anything fans have ever experienced,” said Douglas Reilly, Senior Director, Digital & Franchise Management. “Star Wars Battlefront II will offer everything players loved about the last instalment, and adds new modes that we know the fans want, including an entirely new story developed in partnership with Lucasfilm.”
“We wanted to create a campaign that told a story we haven’t seen before in Star Wars”, says Mark Thompson, Game Director at Motive Studios. “It was important for us to tell a new authentic story, one that gives players a brand-new perspective. By putting players in the boots of an elite member of the Imperial forces, we can show them what the battle was like from the other side.”
Players will have a lot more choice in customisation online and in the campaign. You’ll be able to choose what land and space vehicles you’ll use against the enemy. That’s right, space vehicles, space combat is back.
