Star Wars Battlefront 2 Launch: Reviews, Release Date, Gameplay Videos, And Everything Else You Need To Know

Below you can find essential features and gameplay videos detailing what you need to know about Star Wars Battlefront II.

Star Wars Battlefront II is the latest Star Wars game from EA and DICE, and this time around, the developers have made some major changes to the series. Unlike 2015's Star Wars Battlefront, all of Battlefront II's DLC characters and maps will be given away for free to all players, but the game introduces microtransactions in the form of loot crates to compensate for that. It also features a full single-player campaign that's set between the events of Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens and puts players in the role of Iden Versio, the leader of an Imperial special forces group called the Inferno Squad.

Star Wars Battlefront II releases for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on November 17. Ahead of the game's launch, we've compiled our most important features and gameplay videos detailing everything you need to know about Star Wars Battlefront II. Check back often as we update this article with our in-depth review, guides, additional articles, and videos. Details will likely continue to change as EA responds to the backlash against loot crates; Battlefront II Hero unlock costs have already changed just before launch. [Update: EA has made an even bigger change, removing Battlefront II's microtransactions entirely for the time being.]

Our full review of Battlefront II is coming soon once we get more time with the live game. Until then, you can read our thoughts in our Star Wars Battlefront II review and review roundup. GameSpot critic Alessandro Fillari scored the game a 6/10 and wrote, "While its main narrative feels unresolved, and the general loop of the multiplayer carries a number of issues, Battlefront II still manages to evoke that same sense of joy and excitement found in the core of what the series is all about. But as it stands, the biggest hurdle that Battlefront II will need to overcome--for its simultaneous attempts to balance progression with genuine feeling of accomplishments--is deciding on what type of game it wants to be."

I write about video games, and occasionally I even get to play them. I have an unironic fondness for Star Fox Adventures.
