You’ll need to take a few days off for this one – there’s a lot to see in the latest installment.
The missions cover the entirety of the franchise’s timeline, and you’ll be able to command various characters from each era – like Kylo Ren and Luke Skywalker.
If you’re into multiplayer: it has two epic space battles that can handle up to 24 players. Battlefront II has new ships and vehicles – you’ll finally be able to achieve your childhood dream of being a tauntaun rider. If you pre-order you can pick up costumes for Kylo Ren and Rey, a First Order TIE, a Last Jedi Millenium, Falcon, and extra heroes.
The single player campaign focuses on Iden Versio of the Inferno Squad – voiced by Janina Gavankar – and her quest to avenge the Emperor after the Death Star is destroyed over Endor. Players will follow her path as she tracks down Luke Skywalker. We’ll get a new look at the Empire, including a look at idealistic cities. The squad will get its own expanded universe novel in July, as well.
DICE has noted that the lead characters will have customization options that will distance the game from the arcade feel of its predecessor. There will also be a class system – the special editions come with upgraded versions of four trooper classes. I’m sure we’ll hear more on that as we approach the release date. Expectation is this will be the big one this Christmas.
What do you think – looking forward to this one?
