At today’s Electronic Arts E3 2017 Press conference, EA Play, it has been announced that in the highly anticipated follow up to the equally anticipated and recently announced Star Wars Battlefront that all forms of criticism even “constructive” (translation: not so positive) has been taken to heart for the development of this new game!
“With Star Wars Battlefront II, we’ve really taken feedback from our players to heart, and you see that in the base game, which has so much more content than the first game – a new authentic single player campaign, epic multiplayer, starfighter battles, and solo or co-op PvE on console – a huge game across all eras of the Star Wars films,” says Matt Webster, Executive Producer on Star Wars Battlefront II. “But just as important is how we support the game after launch. Our live service is built around the philosophy of keeping our fans playing together, with seasons that will add meaningful content and in game events on a regular basis.”
Star Wars Battlefront II is being developed by three studios, Motive Studios, DICE and Criterion Games. With the aim to bring the most robust Star Wars game to date. Star Wars Battlefront II will allow players to experience the untold story of Iden Versio, an Imperial elite special forces soldier, in an all-new single player campaign. The game will also allow players to experience epic multiplayer battles, including three epic space battles, where they can pilot a First Order TIE fighter through intense dogfights in space, and play as ground troopers or iconic heroes and villains, such as Yoda, Kylo Ren, and Finn across all three Star Wars eras.
Star Wars Battlefront II will be available worldwide on November 17, 2017 on PS4, Xbox One and PC. Players looking to play that little bit earlier can pre-order the Star Wars Battlefront II: Elite Trooper Deluxe Edition and start playing on November 14th, or through the Play First Trials on EA Access and Origin Access starting November 9.
The Elite Trooper Deluxe Edition includes such goodies as: Three days early access, upgraded weapons, 4 epic star cards, instant weapon unlocks and The Last Jedi Heroes pack full of outfits and even more star cards! Star Wars Battlefront II will have three times the content of the first game, with couch co-op included, and will have a class system you can customise and build your characters with, by spending BattlePoints you earn in game.
