  1. Some critics of EA have lashed out at the company in recent weeks over its handling of the Star Wars Battlefront franchise. One of the major accusations, fueled by a supposed leak from EA, was that EA and DICE had given up on supporting the game and left the player base to slowly fizzle out. The brief overview of Battlefront's future might not put that sentiment fully to bed, but it's a fact that new content will be coming to Battlefront 2 for the foreseeable future. In the next few weeks, Kessel, as featured in Solo: A Star Wars Story, will make its way into Battlefield 2 as a battleground in its own right. A revamped squad system will make an appearance, as well. Perhaps most interestingly, a new starfighter mode based around dogfighting in the special hero ships (maybe hinting at a possible future Rogue Squadron game? - Hey, I can dream!). The biggest Battlefront 2 news that stole the show can be summed up in two words: Clone. Wars. One of the biggest things fans of the original Battlefront games have been clamoring for over the years was the return of the clone troopers and droid armies that featured heavily in the prequels. Soon, players will be able to take to the battlefields of the Star Wars prequel trilogy. In general, the update will be set between the events of Episodes III and IV. The first planet available when this major update goes live will be Geonosis. Prequel heroes and villains will also swell the roster of playable characters with General Grievous, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Count Dooku, and Anakin Skywalker all leaping into the fray. Players can expect to see all of these roll out slowly throughout the rest of 2018 across all platforms.

  3. Star Wars Battlefront II was undoubtedly EA’s centerpiece attraction this E3, with the company dedicating more than half an hour of their press event to the team shooter juggernaut. After a new trailer that featured never before seen maps, heroes, and vehicles, EA presented a long look at a single multiplayer match. Keep reading for a full rundown of everything we saw. EA’s live demo featured the new “Assault on Theed” map, set on the lush and architecturally luxurious planet of Naboo. The map seems to be taking a lot of inspiration from the final battle of Episode One: The Phantom Menace, where Separatist droids fought with the Naboo army in the streets and palace halls of Naboo’s royal city. Much like the Hoth map in the 2015 Battlefront, the assaulting team (Separatists instead of Emperial this time) must escort a siege tank to the front doors of the Naboo royal palace, tear down its defenses, and shut down enemy activity inside the palace. Players are able to take the form of your standard Star Wars prequel trilogy characters, including variants of battle droids and clone troopers. The live demo showcased players competing for every inch of a sprawling, dense, yet surprisingly spacious lane of activity. When players weren’t fighting building to building on either flank, they were sprinting across the large center roadway along the siege tank’s path. Clone troopers were able to make use of AT-RT “chicken walker” tanks, bite-sized prototypes of the original trilogy’s AT-ST’s. The AT-RTs are capable of sprinting long distances in mere seconds, although it seems their attack capabilities are withdrawn as a result. When they are firing lasers, droids are easily mowed down with ease, though the lackadaisical pace puts clone troopers in a vulnerable spot. Separatist droids have their classic battle tanks at hand, which can shells at a modest pace or lock themselves into siege mode, which provides greater power but zero mobility. Clone troopers won’t have to rely on just AT-RTs to get around though. Higher class troopers can spawn with the same jetpacks seen in 2015’s Battlefront. However, the droids might have air superiority in the skies above Naboo, with their numerous vulture droid starfighters dogfighting clone V-Wings. Players were able to zip around the city at daringly low altitudes, in between large stone arches, though any level of contact is of course instant death. Heroes and villains are sure to get their due as well. After the first stage of the battle is complete, and the palace doors blown to bits by the droid’s siege tank, Darth Maul made his debut by chopping up clones into itty bitty pieces. He’ll have some deadly moves, including a lightsaber toss and spiral lunge that can decimate tightly packed groups of enemies. Rey showed up, too, but her player couldn’t hold a candle to Maul’s malevolence, so it was a bit of wash. Evidently, Rey will be able to make use of her Jedi mind control powers she tapped into in “The Force Awakens” to momentarily stun enemies. The live demo ended with the droids taking the palace throne room, essentially walking all over the clones, and ensuring their victory by numbers. While the Frostbite engine will always impress, and while Naboo is certainly a colorful locale to do battle in, it remains to be seen if Battlefront II will be able to differentiate itself from its predecessor. Make sure to check out the gameplay trailer for a more varied look at where Battlefront II will take players later this year. View full article

  5. The force is strong with this one. Star Wars Battlefront 2 was intended to show officially at Star Wars Celebration in Orlando, Florida April 13-16. However, someone with access to the trailer ahead of time leaked the trailer onto the video hosting service Vimeo, presumably because leaked videos take a bit longer to be taken down on that platform. The original upload is no longer available, but the trailer has since been scattered to the wind and picked up by the larger internet. As of right now, you can view the trailer on numerous YouTube channels, like the one below. There are a lot of exciting things about this teaser trailer, despite its short length. There are strong hints that this sequel might include space battles - possibly along the same lines as the previous Battlefront 2 on the PlayStation 2, which featured massive ship-to-ship combat combined with ground combat inside those ships. New hero characters from different eras were also shown fighting in the trailer. Notably the teaser depicts the opening moments of a duel between Darth Maul and Yoda. Rey and Kylo Ren from The Force Awakens also make brief appearances, letting us know that the entire Star Wars universe is fair game to appear in this sequel. That kind of fan service has really been the bread and butter of the Battlefront series. Battlefront 2 will be releasing with a story campaign, something many players wished to see in its predecessor. The story seems like it will follow a soldier for the Empire in a post-Return of the Jedi galaxy. The second Death Star has been destroyed along with the Emperor and the Rebel Alliance has beaten back the Empire's fleet. Various locations are shown in the trailer and seem to indicate that battles at Starkiller Base, Jakku, Hoth, and other film locations are in store - no surprises there. The main downside to this leaked trailer is that it gives no context to the systems that will back up these locations. Will Galactic Conquest return? Will bot play help bolster servers that aren't terribly busy? Are the game mode offerings going to be more robust? I suppose we will have to wait to see if the official reveal in the coming days contains more information.
