Prepare to return to a galaxy far, far away with Star Wars Battlefront II, the explosive sequel to one of the most-played multiplayer shooters of the past year. The game’s exclusive reveal was earlier today at Star Wars Celebration where we all got a first look at the next chapter in this fantastic series that continues to make the dreams of all Star Wars fans come true.
From battling across the stars in your own X-wing, to facing off in “Who would win?” match-ups like Darth Maul vs. Yoda, and playing with the unchecked power of Kylo Ren and The First Order, Star Wars Battlefront II looks to up the ante on what fans have come to expect from a Star Wars game. The number of battlegrounds have also increased, as all three eras — prequel, classic, and new trilogy — look to make an appearance in Star Wars Battlefront II.
One of the most-requested fan features from the original game was a campaign mode and we can confirm that will indeed be included in this sequel. Introducing a new hero named Iden Versio, an elite Imperial special forces soldier, embark on an epic journey that bridges the events between “Return of the Jedi” and “The Force Awakens” in a new canon story in the Star Wars universe, one that compliments the already competitive and fun multiplayer modes.
And exclusive to the console version of Star Wars Battlefront II will be two-player offline split-screen co-op. Get ready to team up with your friends from the comfort of your couch as the two of you battle across the Star Wars universe. In this mode, you’ll be able to earn customization rewards and bring those upgrades with you to the online multiplayer battleground.
As an Xbox One gamer you no doubt already know that EA Access is an exclusive console feature, giving you availability to an expanding catalog of EA classics like Titanfall, Battlefield 3, and Star Wars Battlefront in The Vault along with an exclusive 10% discount on EA digital purchases on Xbox One which include Star Wars Battlefront II that is available for pre-order on Xbox One starting today and available worldwide on November 17! Pre-orders receive “The Last Jedi” heroes, with exclusive-themed looks inspired by the upcoming film, and the Elite Trooper Deluxe Edition will get you access to Star Wars Battlefront II three days early.
We’re extremely excited to return to this Star Wars gaming universe and we’ll have much more details on Star Wars Battlefront II in the coming months. In the meantime, keep it locked to Xbox Wire and may the Force be with you!
