Star Wars Battlefront 2 Release Date Announced
Coming soon from a galaxy far, far away.
In a panel at Star Wars Celebration, representatives of teams working on Battlefront II--EA, Motive Studios, DICE, and Lucasfilm--revealed the release date alongside a full trailer.
Unlike 2015's Star Wars Battlefront, Battlefront II will feature "all eras" of the Star Wars canon rather than drawing only from the original trilogy.
Battlefront II also includes a canon single-player campaign set after the events of Return of the Jedi. It follows an Imperial commander named Iden Versio who swears to avenge the Emperor and quell the Rebellion, though it will include other perspectives. It also introduces a new planet, Iden's homeworld.
Battlefront II's multiplayer features trooper classes as well as an upgrade system for troopers and heroes, which allows for greater customization. Troopers will correspond to the era and location you're battling in, which means Clone Wars-era troops won't show up on Hoth. However, it seems heroes will be available regardless of era.
Preordering the Battlefront II will give you extra content, including Last Jedi-themed costumes for Rey and Kylo Ren. See the full list of preorder bonuses, including what comes with the deluxe edition.
