The first game in the Star Wars Battlefront saga was an incredible success with fluid graphics and a brilliant online multi-player system. Unbelievably, it’s already time for a sequel and Battlefront 2 promises more of the same thrills and spills fans have come to expect. Utilising the incredible performance of Sony’s PlayStation 4, it is sure to be another success for fans and newcomers alike.
Swedish game studio, DICE, is once again taking charge of this instalment with Electronic Arts supporting them throughout the process. The aim with Battlefront 2 is to include more content and more features from the Star Wars canon.
One of the common complaints of the first game was its lack of single player campaign. Thankfully, these cries have been listened to and Battlefront 2 will have an in-depth single player story mode that takes place between the new sequels and the original trilogy.
To increase that unique Star Wars feeling, the game’s multi-player offering will take gamers through the entirety of the series’ vast universe. Characters, settings and epic battles from across the film series will also be included in this new edition.
Gamers can expect to see characters including Darth Vader, Yoda, Darth Maul and Kylo Ren. DICE really hasn’t held back in including popular personalities from the entire franchise and the game’s graphics will also improve on what was seen in Battlefront. There’s no denying that was a gorgeous-looking game and its successor promises to add a layer of polish to proceedings.
To build on the successful multi-player campaign of the previous instalment, Battlefront 2 adds four distinct classes which players can select from. These are Assault, Heavy, Specialist and Officer and will each be customisable and come with their own range of abilities. Cleverly, EA has introduced a new spawning system that allows gamers to re-enter the game together in groups of up to four people should they be defeated at any point.
The blue pick-ups of the previous game have been replaced with a new points-based system that allows gamers to earn points as they play. These can then be spent on various game-changing options like an X-wing fighter or a powerful character from the Star Wars world.
