Star Wars Battlefront 2 has been officially announced after a week of leaks and rumors. Multiplayer will return with new locations, all three eras of the film, a 40 player count as well as the return of offline splitscreen co-op. This time any experience earned offline will transfer to the online multiplayer.
The new game will feature a single player campaign which takes place during the gap between Return of the Jedi and Force Awakens. You play the role of a special forces trooper after the destruction of the Death Star. Your mission is to avenge the emperor and continue the fight against the rebels. This has also been confirmed as part of the official canon of the franchise, so it’s worth checking out at least for that.
You’ll be able to play the game on November 17th, with the Trooper Deluxe edition getting early access on the 14th. EA Access will also get a preview on November 9th for a limited time. Be sure to watch the official trailer to see just what you can look forward to.
