It’s here! Yesterday, Electronic Arts Inc. and Lucasfilm Ltd. released one of the year’s most highly-anticipated games, Star Wars Battlefront II.
Promising to improve on the disappointment of it’s predecessor, Star Wars Battlefront I, EA have listened to the fans and have included a tantalising playable campaign story in Star Wars Battlefront II that bridges the gap between Return Of The Jedi and The Force Awakens.
In this single-player campaign, players will experience a previously untold Star Wars story from the unique perspective of Iden Versio, leader of the Imperial special forces unit, Inferno Squad.
Multi-player mode will also see players able to live out their Star Wars fantasies as a trooper on the ground, an ace pilot dogfighting in space and an epic hero dominating the battlefront.
“With Star Wars Battlefront II, we wanted to pay homage to the legacy of the Star Wars franchise and recognise how much each era has meant to so many people,” said Matt Webster, Executive Producer of Star Wars Battlefront II. “We built the game based upon what fans loved about the first game and feedback of what they wanted more of, including adding a single-player story, experiencing the ultimate Star Wars battleground across all cinematic eras, and shifting to an event and narrative driven live service that keeps the community together.”
Star Wars Battlefront II is out now through EA GAMES on PlayStation 4, PC and Xbox One.
