"Next year we'll see Star Wars Battlefront back with bigger and better worlds, because we now have the new movies to work off [and] not just the historical movies that we used before."
―Blake Jorgensen, Electronic Arts chief financial officer[src]

Star Wars Battlefront II[5] will be released on November 17, 2017 by Electronic Arts. It is a sequel to 2015's Star Wars Battlefront. The sequel will include worlds depicted in the new Star Wars films[3] as well as content from the original and prequel trilogies.

StoryEdit

The storyline predominantly follows Iden Versio, commander of the Imperial Special Forces unit Inferno Squadron. Upon witnessing the destruction of the second Death Star, Versio's troops look to her for direction. Versio tells her troops that they will avenge the Emperor.

The story will span thirty years, beginning in the waning months of the Galactic Civil War and concluding around the destruction of Starkiller Base.[6]

There will be segments in the campaign where other characters are playable as well, including Luke Skywalker and Kylo Ren.[7]

GameplayEdit

The game will return to the roots of the classic Battlefront games, using a class based system for infantry troopers with each class having a shared progression system, but with equipment differing depending on faction.[2]

The classes will be Officer, Assault, Heavy, and Specialist.[8]

More vehicles will be included for all factions, including Tauntauns. Space battles will also be making a return with new starships. Vehicles will also be apart of a new customization and progression system.[9]

Playable hero and villain characters from the films will be expanded upon, with players able to customize skills to their liking. Creative Director Bernd Diemer stated that he wanted the heroes to have more depth rather than feeling like a momentary power up.[9]

EditionsEdit

The game will come in a standard edition and several deluxe versions.[8]

The Elite Trooper Deluxe Edition offers early access to the game as well as class and Hero upgrades.[8]

DevelopmentEdit

The game's development was revealed in an interview with an EA executive in 2016.[3] More information, including its development by DICE and Motive Studios, was revealed during EA's Livestream during E3 2016.

The game's development is a collaboration between DICE, who are developing the multiplayer, Motive Studios, who are developing the single player mode, and Criterion Software, who are developing the vehicle and flight controls.

The game will include content from all three film trilogies.[10]

On April 12, 2017 a teaser trailer was leaked giving confirmation that the game would include content from all three main Star Wars eras, a single player campaign, and heroes such as Kylo Ren, Rey, Darth Maul, and Yoda.[11]

EA premiered the trailer for it at their panel at 2017's Celebration Orlando.[5]

A goal of the story is to humanize the Empire in ways that haven't been seen before.[6]

DICE has hinted that the game will not include a season pass,[12] instead seeking a better alternative in order to avoid "fragmenting" the community of players.[13]
