A Big Announcement for EA and DICE

Today at around 11 o’clock EA took the moment to update their new Star Wars Battlefront II Website. If you want to visit the website Click Here. I was actually one of the first people to view this website. The reason is because since 9 o’clock I have been refreshing the website because I knew that there was going to be a huge trailer and announcement from DICE and EA. I actually viewed the website at the beginning at around 10:30 ish and then they disabled my connection with the web site. This is because I might have viewed an over excessive amount of information about the game. They didn’t know that some people could easily find out. After 10 minutes they disabled my connection and an hour later they re-updated the website with some more content.

The trailer section of the website was super buggy though. When you clicked on the youtube video trailer the video was unavailable. This was probably because they were still making some changes to the trailer. Below is the actual trailer for Star Wars Battlefront II.

This on top is the trailer of Star Wars BATTLEFRONT II.

Trailer Breakdown

Most of the trailer is based on this Elite Black Stormtrooper named Iden Versio. She is the head commander of the group Inferno Squad. This is what the single-player is based on.This is a group that was created by the Sith lords based on the event that happened between the Star Wars movies: “Rogue One” and “A New Hope”. If you remember from Rogue One (Spoiler Alert), everyone dies with the Death Star. Jin and Cassian and the whole crew are killed in the process of retrieving the files of the Death Star. That is the reason why Leia destroys the Death Star in the following movies after that. So what Inferno Squad is, the group like Rogue One but for the bad people. They are created to avenge the Death of the Death Star and that is exactly what the campaign in BATTLEFRONT II is about. In the campaign, you will be allowed to play as both sides and during the camping, you can play as the new heroes that will be appearing in the game. During the trailer, it shows the brand new characters that will be appearing from all of the eras in the Star Wars timeline including The Clone Wars and The Force Awakens. Other than that it shows different vehicles that you can ride on including news maps that will be available to the public. Vehicles including tyrants and maps including Mos Eisley, Space, The Resistance base, The First Order Base, and a new Endor map.

The way how the trailer is broken down is 3/4 of it is based on the Single-Player campaign and story and the other 1/4 is about the new things that are being brought in the game and at the end there is a promotion for the game. If you pre-order the game right now then you can actually receive more characters that are in The Last Jedi. My hunch is that it possibly will be Poe Damron, Finn, and maybe Maz Katana.

The EA Website

When you navigate yourself to the website it shows a picture of Iden Versio in the middle of Rey and Darth Maul. There is a paragraph that then talks about the new heroes that are coming to the game. There is a button that you can click to pre-order the game and a button to watch the trailer. Next, comes the details about the single-player. Like iIsaid you will be able to as Iden Versio and other characters in Co-Op mode in the campaign itself. It talks about the battleground. You will be able to play online multiplayer up to 40 players per server game and revel in deep class-based online gameplay, pilot a wide variety of land and air vehicles, and control iconic characters with distinct abilities that can turn the tide of battle. After that comes Galactic Space battles. Pilot renown craft like the Millennium Falcon or Luke Skywalker’s X-wing in exciting dogfights with up to 24 players. Next, comes the character itself in the game. For the first time in Battlefront, we will be seeing character upgrade abilities as well as customizing the abilities of the hero itself. Play as—and against—Star Wars’ most feared villains and cherished heroes from all three eras, including Kylo Ren, Rey, Darth Maul, Yoda, and much more.

Last but not least you will be able to play Co-Op with your friend offline in skirmishes. Take on the battleground offline in split screen *split-screen co-op available only on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One*. Lastly, EA has made much more flexible in this game. You will be able to customize your abilities for any character you play from a Droid all the way to a Rebel and even a Stormtrooper. “Tailor unique abilities for each hero, trooper, and starfighter to gain the upper hand in battle with Star Wars Battlefront II’s diverse and powerful progression system. The path to victory is yours to decide.” This is exactly what is written on heir website. The last thing I want to mention is that there will be 4 classes in the game just like you see in the spawn/deploy screen after you get killed like in Battlefield 1. This is really different and the only way I know is when you click on the pre-order button you can see the contents in the game and this is where it is listed. I am not sure if anyone has found this out yet.

That is it for this article. I really can’t wait till this game because DICE and EA have really stepped up the game and has changed many things coming to the game. I remember back in the first game it was very simple and you couldn’t really customize your abilities or upgrade them.
