ABOUT THE GAME - STRAIGHT FROM EA
Star Wars Battlefront II is an upcoming action shooter based on the Star Wars film franchise. It is the fourth major installment of the Star Wars: Battlefront series and seventh overall, and a sequel to the 2015 reboot of the series. It is under development by EA DICE in collaboration with Criterion Games and Motive Studios, and published by Electronic Arts.
Unlike its 2015 predecessor, it features a story-driven single-player campaign and multiplayer character classes; it also features cross-era characters and locations from the original, prequel, and sequel Star Wars movie trilogies. The game is scheduled to be released worldwide on November 17, 2017,
The second iteration of this franchise will be featuring a campaign, similarly to the original Pandemic game of the same name, with a full campaign storyline rather than being solely focused on multiplayer as DICE's first Battlefront was. The game's singleplayer protagonist, Iden Versio, leader of an Imperial Special Forces group known as Inferno Squad, played by Janina Gavankar, will be participating in the events leading up to The Force Awakens. There will be segments in the campaign where the player will be able to control characters such as Luke Skywalker and Kylo Ren.
Instead of the paid Season Pass downloadable content (DLC) seen in the 2015 predecessor, this game is expanded with free DLC provided to all players with a free EA account. Lead actress Janina Gavankar stated that the DLC would be free to all players, using a seasonal structure similar to Overwatch and Rainbow Six Siege. There are many playable heroes from each movie era, including: Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, Emperor Palpatine, Boba Fett, Yoda, Darth Maul, Han Solo, Rey, Kylo Ren, Finn, Princess Leia, Lando Calrissian, Bossk, Chewbacca, and Captain Phasma; although both Finn and Captain Phasma will be released in a wave of content after the initial release. The planet to be released alongside them is Crait, seen in the trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
