It seems like every year is going to be a big year for the Star Wars franchise thanks to the Disney acquisition of the IP. Well, while the cinemas will be flooded with Star Wars titles about every little charaacter to ever grace the lore, video game players will have the same opportunity. Star Wars Battlefield 2, developed by the team at DICE, is getting more and more press as the November 17th release date is quickly rounding the corner. Star Wars Battlefront 2 is one of the most anticipated titles for both PC and console gamers alike this year so let us see if it lives up to the billing!
DICE is seeking to cash in on the excitement that has slowly been building around ‘Episode VIII: The Last Jedi’, due for release this December, by releasing Battlefront 2 ahead of schedule in November. Fans of the title can already anticipate that there will be cross-over material between the games and the film franchise. We already know that there will be both Rey and Kylo Ren skins available for ownload if you go ahead and slap down the pre-order charge. We also know that if you are a subscriber to Origin Access, and let’s face it many of us are, you’ll get the game all the way on November 9th — a whole week early.
One of the strongest aspects of the Star Wars franchise is the far-reaching and always enjoyable landscapes you get to experience firsthand. Battlefront 2 will bring gamers to all of the most famous locations in the lore. We’ll get to see Yavin IV, Hoth and Tatooine as well as Hosnia Prime, Scarif an even Jedha. THere are a slew of maps that have yet to be announced but we can’t wait to try them out. THe multiplayer in Battlefront 2 will obviously be the big pull and having all of the character types from the main IP, along with the new characters introduced in the Abrams-verse, means that we’ll be getting something special this time around.
