  • More Star Wars Battlefront Campaign Details Revealed

    star wars battlefront 2 campaignSo far, we know that Star Wars Battlefront II is getting a single player campaign, but we know relatively little information about it.

    This is quite surprising considering how close we are to the launch now. Thankfully, we have a few more snippets of information today that we can use to help slowly piece together the Star Wars Battlefront campaign story.

    Battlefront II producer David Robillard has revealed the length of the Star Wars Battlefront campaign. According to Robillard, the playtime is roughly 5 to 8 hours, depending on how well you can play against the AI opponents.

    Considering that this is usually the average length of a single player campaign for AAA first-person shooter games, I think we've got something special to look forward to. There are no details of any level of replayability for the single player campaign yet. These days, most campaigns seem to have very little replay value.

    It'd be great to go back to the days of Halo 3 - during those times it seemed couch co-op campaigns with massive replayability were a big focus for developers. These days there's less focus on the single player, and more focus on the multiplayer. This is certainly the case for Star Wars Battlefront 2, but at least they did actually include a single player campaign this time around.

    So, in summary, it might not be wise purchasing Star Wars Battlefront 2 on release just for the single-player campaign, but if you plan on playing the game for both the multiplayer and the single player, you'll definitely get your money's worth out of it.

  • Star Wars Battlefront 2 Gets Space Battle Trailer

    star wars battlefront 2 space battleOne of the first complaints that players had with the first DICE Battlefront game was that the game didn't have any space battles.

    This was a feature in the original Battlefront franchise that a lot of fans appreciated. Thankfully, Battlefront 2 will be getting space battles and the gameplay has been showcased in a brand new trailer from EA.

    A brand new game mode is coming to Star Wars Battlefront 2 called Starfighter Assault - this is the mode that will incorporate most of the new space gameplay. In Starfighter Assault, one team must work together to destroy a starfighter, while the other team must try to keep it alive.

    Players will have the opportunity to fly through space in a number of popular Star Wars spaceships, including TIE Fighters and A-Wings.

    Besides the space combat, everything else about the new Starfighter Assault mode will remain the same. This means players will be able to use various pickups spread around the arena.

    Players will also get the chance to fly different spaceships that belong to the heroes in Battlefront 2. As an example, Darth Vader's unique TIE Fighter is available as a hero power-up.

    Star Wars Battlefront 2 is set to launch on November 17 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. The Starfighter Assault game mode will be available at launch, alongside a number of other game modes.

    Some game modes will be making a return, while a number of new game modes will be brought to the Battlefront franchise for the first time. Some games, such as the Starfighter Assault mode, will be based on game modes from the first two Battlefront games.

  • Battlefront 2 Will Have Loot Box Micro-Transactions

    battlefront 2 loot cratesStar Wars Battlefront 2 has been confirmed to feature loot box micro-transactions. While this is a common occurrence in games these days, some players are concerned about the contents of these loot boxes.

    With the loot boxes in Battlefront 2, players have two options. Players can either earn credits by playing the game normally, or they can top up their credits balance by purchasing credits with real money. These credits can then be spent to purchase and open loot boxes, or otherwise known as 'Crates' in Battlefront 2.

    Players are also given crates for logging in regularly - so players have the opportunity to earn rewards for being a loyal player. All of the crates in Star Wars: Battlefront 2 will contain a number of different rewards, including Star Cards, Crafting Materials, and Credits.

    Credits can be used to purchase more crates, while Crafting Materials can be used to craft more Star Cards. Finally, Star Cards include upgrades for heroes and characters in Star Wars Battlefront 2.

    These Star Cards do include cosmetic changes, but they also include some improvements to stats, including stats that affect damage reduction. This gives players who have a lot of money to invest in the game, a higher chance to get the best Star Cards. It should be noted that players who open chests with credits still have a chance to get good Star Cards.

  • Battlefront 2 is Coming 2017

    battlefront 2 2017It's almost been two years since the first DICE Battlefront game, and now another one is on the horizon.

    The first DICE-EA Battlefront tile may not have been accepted well by the community, but DICE has had chance to learn from their mistakes and they're hoping Battlefront 2 will be appreciated by FPS and Star Wars fans alike.

    First things first, the new Battlefront 2 game is slated for a Holiday 2017 release, which means it'll most likely arrive around the same time of the year the first Battlefront title did in 2015. DICE will also be getting help this time round from another studio. The studio which has been hired to help out is none other than Criterion, the same guys behind the explosive Burnout video game series.

    Another newly formed development team named Motive Studios will also be helping out. So far we're not sure how much of a part either of the other two developers will play in the development process, but DICE will be the main team, with Criterion and Motive offering additional support.

    Battlefront 2 will feature a number of changes when compared to the original. Firstly, Battlefront 2 will have a single player campaign, which is an area that the original received a lot of complaints for. Battlefront 2 will also feature gameplay from all Star Wars eras, so this could include the original trilogy, episode 1, 2, 3 and all of the newer movies.
