Star Wars Battlefront II hits PS4 in November

A new single-player Star Wars story, vastly expanded multiplayer and much more coming 17th November

Welcome to Star Wars Battlefront II, with a new story mode taking players on an epic journey from the battle of Endor to the rise of the First Order. The prequels, original trilogy, and new era meet in a vast multiplayer adventure coming to PS4 on 17th November (or 14th November if for players who pre-order the Elite Trooper Deluxe Edition).

Star Wars Battlefront II introduces a new single-player Star Wars story. As Imperial special forces operative Iden Versio, you’ll witness firsthand the destruction of the second Death Star. That calamitous event propels you and your elite team, Inferno Squad, into an odyssey of revenge, betrayal, and redemption. The action-packed campaign that follows spans the 30-year gap between Star Wars: Return of the Jedi and Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and leads you to encounters with some of Star Wars’ greatest heroes.

You’ll also take control of even more of your favorite characters in the vastly expanded multiplayer, including Darth Maul, Yoda, Kylo Ren, Luke Skywalker, Rey, and many more familiar faces from all three cinematic eras. You’ll be able to pilot a variety of starfighters in Space Battle scenarios and master the deep, class-based online gameplay in locations like Theed, Takodana, Starkiller Base, Yavin, Mos Eisley, Endor, Hoth, and more. You’ll have more options than ever with a rewarding progression system, extensive hero customization abilities, and a larger arsenal of weapons with improved modification.

Anyone who pre-orders the Standard Edition will get a whole range of rewards, including exclusive Star Wars: The Last Jedi-themed looks for Kylo Ren and Rey, an ability modifier that upgrades the Millennium Falcon, epic ability modifiers for Rey and Kylo Ren, and more. Players purchasing the Elite Trooper Deluxe Edition receive upgraded versions of all Trooper classes, a A280-CFE blaster rifle instant weapon unlock, an enhanced scope modification, and an epic ability modifier.

We’re very proud of the exciting new single-player story and multiplayer gameplay, but we don’t want to spoil too much too soon! We’ll be revealing new details on Star Wars Battlefront II this summer. In the meantime, we’d love to hear more about the characters, battlegrounds, and features you’d most like to see.

That trailer is great. You have my interest, attention, and probably all of my money :) I’d like to see as much “new trilogy” stuff as possible; I’m a bit jaded on Luke/Vader/etc. If we could get some decent Rey, Jyn, Finn, Kylo, and Poe action that would be great. The new movies deserve all the love they can get.

While the trailer is impressive, and it’s a welcome sight to see a single player campaign, I’m reserving my judgement for post-release reviews given the state that the previous Battlefront was released in, particularly in light of the decision to use in-engine rather than in-game footage again in the trailer, which isn’t in any way representative of the final experience.

Battlefront was a rushed out, incomplete hash of a game, with awful shooting mechanics, gunplay that had no weight to it, scant content, only two multiplayer modes worth playing, zero tactics and team co-ordination in comparison to Battlefield, a broken hero system, awful vehicle controls, a diabolical monetisation strategy, and the general feeling it was aimed at 13 year old Star Wars fans blowing their parents money rather than actual gamers. Sure, the graphics were nice, but slick graphics are a bonus, not the reason you should be buying a game.

Played it for about 8 hours with a friend, we were both bored stupid by that time of constant zerging across the same maps, and he was sick to his stomach at dropping nearly a hundred quid for the game and season pass.

You have my attention, but to get my money you’ll need to show me more than this. Forget shiny engine footage, show me the game.

Lol who drops £100 without doing the most basic of research?

Ahh that’s why is the “first” Battlefront always on the sale :-P !

Single Player, thanks EA! Now I just hope it’ll actually be good. But more importantly, what about PSVR support?? Please make at least all space missions playable in VR, the Rogue One demo was sooo good, but far too short and easy, we need more.
Sony are you listening, what better way to support PSVR than a full fledged Star Wars game?? Well maybe a new COLONY WARS, right?

It’s down to EA, not Sony. Only they have the licenses with Disney to produce Star Wars games.

I love star wars so was a big disappointment the first battlefront didn’t have single player campaign and is why I didn’t get it
this is star wars for goodness sake not having single player in the game was criminal and I’m hoping the one in battlefront2 makes up for it

So basically this is the game we should have got originally and not just a slightly fleshed out demo?

I see they’re still sticking with the “pay to play early” feature too on top of the impending £40 season pass so the game has more than about 8 maps. No thanks.

There is no season pass.

I’m gonna pass. The godawful The Force Awakens killed any remaining love I had for the franchise just like it killed Han. I don’t even wanna hear the hum of a light saber anymore.

I know right. All the good reviews boggled the mind. The plot was exactly the same as the first movie. Just because it didnt have a “Yippeeee” or “Noooooooo” scene to make us cringe didnt make it a good movie.

I bought the first one for fiften dollars and got my moneys worth in three minutes on a speeder bike. I had been waiting for that ever since i saw jedi. Rest of the game? Meh.

No more Emo sith!!!

SW battlefront showed us one thing. There is no reasing in buying this game in first to years. And definately there is no reason to pay more that 30€ for it. It has AAA grafics and almost no gamplay value…. I will buy it somewhere in 2019 as discounted GotY edition just to see single player campaing…
