Star Wars Battlefront II Available Today

Even with all the microtransaction issues that have become talked about by so many, forcing publisher Electronic Arts to put theim on hold, Star Wars Battlefront II has finally been ’officially’ released to the general public. 

EA says that fans can immerse themselves in a game that’s over three times the size of its predecessor with more heroes, locations and vehicles from every cinematic era, deeper customization, progression, and enhanced space battles. In the all-new single player campaign, players will experience a previously untold Star Wars story from the unique perspective of Iden Versio, leader of the Imperial special forces unit, Inferno Squad.
Star Wars Battlefront II allows fans to play as and against Star Wars’ most feared villains and cherished heroes in DICE’s rich multiplayer experience, including Darth Maul, Rey, Yoda, and joining this December, Finn and Captain Phasma. There’s something for everyone in six different multiplayer modes: Starfighter Assault, Galactic Assault, Strike, Blast, Heroes vs. Villains, and Arcade.

The sixth mode, Galactic Assault, allows up to 40 players to step into battle as one of four distinct classes with a massive array of vehicles and customizable weapons in new in-game locations including Yavin 4’s jungle canopies, Kamino’s cloning facilities, and Kashyyyk’s Wookiee filled forests. 

Space combat has been designed from the ground up and brought to life by Criterion Games in Starfighter Assault, featuring distinct handling, weapons, and customization options through Star Cards. Players can immerse themselves in thrilling, multi-stage battles in space and choose from three unique starfighter classes and iconic hero ships including Darth Maul’s Scimitar and Poe Dameron’s T-70 X-wing. In Arcade, fans can jump into offline single-player or on consoles, split-screen couch co-op, allowing them to take on AI enemies and hone their skills across a variety of scenarios.  
New to Star Wars Battlefront II is a carefully crafted and authentic Star Wars story developed by Motive Studios in partnership with Lucasfilm. The campaign helps to tell the story of what happened in the empire after the events of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi from the perspective of an all new hero, Iden Versio, leader of Inferno Squad. In addition to exploring iconic locations from the films, players will be introduced to new ones including the coral planet of Pillio and Iden’s home planet of Vardos.

So, with all the talk of microtransactions, pay to win, EA putting the microtransactions on hold, and whatnot, does this game still interest you?
