Strap in, everybody. Not only are we getting a mainline Star Wars movie this year with The Last Jedi releasing in December, but we are also getting Star Wars Battlefront 2 on November 11. This is crazy to me! I’ve been a huge fan of basically everything Star Wars for as long as I can remember, and the high quality of content the franchise has been putting out has just been incredible. Lets just take a look at some of the features of Battlefront 2, shall we?
- A single player campaign penned by Mitch Dyer (formerly of IGN, and a good dude) and Walt Williams (Spec Ops: The Line). Really excited about this in particular, as Williams’ work on Spec Ops was truly fantastic, that game made me feel a whole lot of feelings!
- Story will follow the captain of an elite Imperial commandos known as Inferno Squad, at least initially. Looks like both Luke Skywalker and Kylo Ren will be playable in the single player campaign!
- This will be a canon story line, set just before the destruction of the second Death Star, all the way up to the events of The Force Awakens.
- Of course, the entire multiplayer suite of the original Battlefront is looking to return, with a new class system and a stronger focus on space battles
I’m sure we will learn more about Star Wars Battlefront 2 at E3 in a couple of months, and I for one cannot wait! now if you will excuse me, I have to re-watch The Force Awakens and start watching Rebels to prepare myself. Might even pick up some of thos new canon novels, I hear Scoundrels by Timothy Zahn is quite good. I’ve included the link for the full length reveal trailer below, check it out and let me know what you think!
And may the Force be with you, always.
