Star Wars Battlefront II announced

Sequel arriving this year with a single player campaign

Posted on

Electronic Arts and Lucasfilm Ltd. have announced that Star Wars Battlefront II will release on November 17, 2017 worldwide.

Star Wars Battlefront II will allow players to experience the untold story of an Imperial elite special forces soldier in an all-new single player campaign. Taking place in the 30 years between the destruction of Death Star II and through the rise of the First Order, the single player story introduces Iden Versio, the leader of Inferno Squad, an elite special forces unit of the Galactic Empire, who are equally lethal on the ground and in space. In addition to Iden, players will also encounter and play as other iconic Star Wars heroes and villains like Luke Skywalker and Kylo Ren during the campaign.

In multiplayer battles, players will be able to pilot a First Order TIE fighter through intense dogfights in space, and play as ground troopers or iconic heroes and villains, such as Yoda and Darth Maul, across all three Star Wars eras. With modes supporting up to 40 players, maps will span locations from all three eras: prequel, classic and new trilogy, including new in-game locations such as Yavin 4’s jungle canopies, the spaceport town of Mos Eisley, and Starkiller Base. Players can choose from an array of land and air vehicles and master their own hero’s journey, with customizable character progression across heroes, villains, troopers and starfighters.

Galactic-scale space combat will also feature in a mode. Criterion has built space combat with refined handling, weapons, and customization options. Players can drop into the cockpit of the galaxy’s most iconic ships, weave between asteroid fields and fly through imperial dockyards in dogfights.

Fans who pre-order Star Wars Battlefront II will get content inspired by the upcoming film including exclusive Kylo Ren and Rey themed looks. Players can also equip both characters with ability upgrades in multiplayer. Players can also upgrade to the Star Wars: The Last Jedi Millennium Falcon and a new First Order ship.

Those that order the Star Wars Battlefront II: Elite Trooper Deluxe Edition will not only have access to all the Star Wars: The Last Jedi inspired pre-order content, but can also play as the ultimate Star Wars elite trooper. Every trooper class will receive upgrades, delivering superior firepower, deadly weapon modifications and combat abilities. Deluxe Edition owners will also get a head start on the battlefront, being able to jump into the game up to three days early.

Star Wars Battlefront II will be available worldwide on November 17th, 2017 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and on Origin for PC. Elite Trooper Deluxe Edition owners can play starting on November 14th, or through the Play First Trials on EA Access and Origin Access starting November 9th.
