Not sure if this would either be considered to early or this should be rather merged with the thread of the first game but:

 

 

 

 

This gets me hyped....like really hyped.

:panic::panic::panic:

 

So it seems like this is gonna be quite be...well....really....

 

Characters/inviroment...everything from ALL places !

The official trailer came out today:

 

 

-Release Date: November 17

-No Season Pass this time around.

 

-Single Player details:

 

Source: http://io9.gizmodo.com/star-wars-battlefront-ii-will-tell-a-canon-story-of-imp-1794354644

In Battlefront II, out November 17, there will be a single player campaign. It’ll give you the ability to play as Iden Versio, played by Janina Gavankar, a special forces Imperial soldier who vows revenge on the Rebel Alliance after seeing Death Star II get blown up from the surface of Endor. The character wholly believes in the Empire and, for players, it’ll be a focus they are not used to: the eradication of the Rebellion.

In addition to a hugely expanded multiplayer experience, the highlight of Battlefront II is this brand new, canon Star Wars story that puts players on the opposite side of the conflict. As the leader of the brand new, elite, Inferno Squad (who will get their own book later this year, out July 25), Iden was raised on Vardos, a brand new planet created for the game that’s kind of an Imperial utopia. There she was raised to totally and fully understand Imperial beliefs. Her team is the best at everything in the Empire: ground battle, flying, sabotage, spying, everything. So when the second Death Star blows up, Iden and her droid sidekick go off on a journey that will take her on a story spanning the time period between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens. (It also involves Operation Cinder, which fans will recognize from some of the new canon content) However, in the game, you won’t only play as Iden. She’s the primary “hero” but the campaign will also allow you to play as Jedi Master Luke Skywalker, Kylo Ren and other stars of the series.

 

 

-Multiplayer details:

So no effort will be put into the Multiplayer apart from a direct copy of what happens in Star Wars: Battlefront, which was already not much, and we get a singleplayer campaign

Egh whatever, didn't buy the first one. probably won't buy this. By november they might have made two or three maps, wouldn't give much of an interesting singleplayer campaign I'd imagine.

Reminds me of the old Battlefront 2 that came out in 2005 (Disappointing that they didn't name this something else) when you played as part of the 501st and their journey from being part of the Republic to fighting for the empire.

There were several details about multplayer changes in this game, but the articles talking about them are inconsistent with what changes they want to discuss. From what I've picked up on IGN, Polygon, and Eurogamer articles:

  • There will be a class system implemented.
  • Power-ups such as heroes and vehicles will no longer be pick-ups but instead be obtainable by doing various things during a match through some sort of resource-based system.
  • There won't be cross-era battles such as First Order vs the Rebellion or Trade Federation vs the Empire, but heroes from each era will apparently be able to go against each other.

 

The details are still relatively fuzzy right now, so I'd still take my post with a grain of salt until DICE gives us the full details.

There's going to be no season pass for this game. Shocked EA let that happen. Expect microtransactions to take its place though.

The class system would be the most wanted change I'd imagine, that and more than three maps.

 

Who knows, maybe Battlefront 2 will be the Battlefront we originally hoped for, but I doubt it.

Did you miss BATTLEFRONT in the title? I mean, when I think of Star Wars, I think of large scale warfare on land and in space.

I've gotta say, I'm a little excited. I actually liked the first one (I didn't play it a whole lot, but I had a pretty good time), but it was severely lacking a single-player campaign and real map variety, two things I was hoping a sequel would fix. Check and check. And from the sounds of things, there's not going to be a season pass. Niiice. It really seems as if they've listened to all the criticism and have worked to deliver a vastly improved follow-up. If this works out, it could be the Titanfall 2 that the rebooted Battlefront series needs.

The main thing I wish for is an offline Instant Action or Skirmish in the game, don't get me wrong, a campaign being added is cool and all, but I'll only play through it after once to get collectibles (That is if it'll have any) and such.

 

Playing as the villains reminds me of the original Battlefront 2 Rise of the Empire campaign.

I bought the last Battlefront, played it for about a week or 2? I personally though it was a tame, very easy version of Battlefield. I could run directly towards a walker and wouldn't feel the slightest bit intimidated whereas if i saw a tank 500 meters away on Battlefield i sh*t myself more than i do playing horror games.

Battlefront 2 will have to be a lot more hardcore for it to intrigue me.

Good for too as they're other Star Wars games in development.

 

You seem to favor a game focused on the force, you could play the Force Unleashed, Kotor or the Old Republic. Plenty of options.

I'm definitely intrigued by it. I've played the first one well the first newest one but just a little bit on xbox one. I'm now on ps4 but i don't think i should get back into the game now considering you got the 2nd newest one coming already witch btw just blows my mind that EA has already made the next newest installment and it makes me think that like if you look at the pattern so far with these new battle front games,they release before the next movie of the trilogy so it makes me think that battle front 3 is definitely on its way. I definitely appreciate them doing story mode as that was lacking in the last one and i think makes the game even better cause we all sometimes don't wanna just jump into multiplayer you know? Again i'm intrigued but idk at the moment if ill be getting it.

I get the feeling there won't be a season pass, but you'll have to subscribe to EA access or something that's just like a season pass to get any DLC.

I expect them to go the same way Halo 5/Siege/Overwatch did and just use cosmetic microtransactions to cover the expenses. Which is good, as long as there isn't a major mode built around those microtransactions like the Warzone in Halo.

 

It makes me wonder how they'll handle customization for the FO. The Imperials have a ton of diverse variant gear they can use from the EU, the GAR is in the same boat and they can even use CoD-style handmade modifications and decals and stuff, but the FO is seriously understocked in comparison. Basically just Stormtrooper, Flametrooper, Snowtrooper and several slight modifications to basic Stormie equipment. It doesn't really lend to a cosmetics-based economy.

 

And the Resistance is even worse off right now. TLJ better deliver.

...considering the current attitude of TPTB is that 'everything is part of the one cohesive canon' nowadays, anyone else wondering if this might wind up telling the story of how the post-Endor remnants* of the Empire became the First Order? And, by extension, that Commander Iden Versio was pivotal in making that happen - after all, the First Order does use a bit more red and black than the old Empire... ;)

I'm also wondering if the name 'First Order' isn't along the lines of 'the Ninth Fleet' or whatever, but more a symbolic reference to 'the first order' given by the Imperial higher-ups in the wake of the Emperor's death. Bit like how 'Section 31' in Star Trek sounds like the 31st section of whichever organisation, but is actually a nod to 'article 14, section 31' of the original Earth Starfleet charter, which is the bit that allows for standard rules to be bent/overruled in the event of an extraordinary threat (which is why Section 31 is an 'ends justify the means' fringe group dedicated to protecting human interests at any cost).

In any case, I'm

- here's hoping the addition of a decent single-player story (and the added context/structure that comes with it) will do for the new Battlefronts what Titanfall 2 did for that franchise. After all, the previous game looked solid enough, just a bit too 'slight' for my liking due to being 'multiplayer laser-tag matches only'. :pWriting is largely being handled by Walt Williams (the man behind Spec Ops: The Line - now there's a good precedent for a game that's ostensibly being told from the perspective of the bad guys of the series!), and I think there's real potential in Inferno Squadron, too. They almost feel like a cross between the overall vibe of the old 181st pilots (again with the red and black! ;)) and the 'fighter squadron-meets-commando unit' MO of Wraith Squadron - yeah, it's as much just a way to have a one-size-fits-all unit that can do all the shooting/flying/etc. that the game needs, but at least it does so in a way that feels adequately 'Star Wars-y', and not incongruously 'video game-y' (looking at you, Star Trek: Elite Force's 'Hazard Team'... :sigh:).

(...)

Right on the money. From Aftermath: Empire's End:

"It's time to start over," she says to Hux [the elder]. That is our first order. To begin again. And to get it right, this time.

"Yes, of course, Grand Admiral. Glory be to Grand Admiral Sloane."

"No," she says. "Glory only to the Empire."

My Empire, she thinks.

 

The connections to Aftermath and Shattered Empire are some of the nuggets that made me most excited when the full trailer came out. In one of the shots, you can see the Emperor's Sentinel droid, one of the messengers sent out after Sheev's death to relay his final orders. The "Resistance. Rebellion..." speech in the trailer is from that, and it's a variant of a similar message captain Duvat received in Shattered Empire. Then you can also clearly see shots from the battle of Jakku, which means that we'll finally get to see it in all its glory and not just through descriptions in the novels or as a pretty skybox. And then you have all the other connections to SW lore (Iden's recon droid!).

 

So, Rae Sloane has to be in this game, or I will riot.

 

Anyway, if you watch the panel, there's very interesting talk about how the writers worked closely with both the Story Group and Christie Golden to make the most of the opportunities the shared universe offers. It's great stuff.

 

I wonder how much time will the game really cover too. Jakku and the Unknown Regions exodus is a clear finale material, where you can then just do a time skip and do a cinematic epilogue 30 years later, but they've already confirmed a Kylo Ren episode in the story campaign too, which gives me hope that we'll get to see much more of the First Order. I just wish they won't go the obvious route and make Iden betray the FO after Snoke takes over. It would be so easy to push the narrative that the FO are complete unredeemable villains that even the "good" imperials don't want anything to do with. That's just lazy. But, like you said, that the writer of Spec Ops is on board carries a promise of a bit more nuance. We'll see, I guess.

Yep. That's one thing I liked about the first Battlefront 2 (gawd, that's a mind-fcuk... :blink:) - you went seamlessly from 'loyal soldier of the Republic' to 'loyal soldier of the Empire', eradicating the Jedi with the same ease as you were assisting them only a mission or two earlier. And no tonal shift to mark 'we're eeevil now!', or re-contextualisation to make the 501st the 'good guys', either - largely because it ...didn't need saying, really.

(bit like The Wolf of Wall Street in a way - if 'Ben Kenobi's side = good, Darth Vader's = evil' isn't self-evident, in the same way as 'FYI, this guy making an absolute killing from conning gullible people into wasting money on garbage stocks is a Very Bad Person', then ...maybe get your moral compass checked, eh? ;))


In other words, I hope there's a whole lot of bitterness, fanaticism, and

( :orly:) - so yeah, agreed that it'd be nice to go more down the route of TIE Fighter, where 'doing the right thing' means 'righteously purging the Empire of enemies', as opposed to the Force Unleashed/Force Commander thing of 'morally-upstanding soldier realises the Empire is evil and defects thing', or the Karen Traviss approach of 'no, really, the Jedi are evil and my handful of pet characters are the only true good in the universe' (:rol:) to make the Empire palatable.



(oh, and mandatory cringe at the reminder that Palpatine got given a first name - and 'Sheev', at that... :dontgetit: Same as when DC decided Sinestro needed a conventional 'first name, last name' getup, and so 'Thaal Sinestro', or the ultimate cringe: Obi-Wan's homeworld of 'Stewjon'... :sui:)
