Star Wars Battlefront 2 Trailer

Over the weekend, Electronic Arts unveiled the official gameplay trailer for Star Wars Battlefront 2, revealing the first footage from inside the game itself, and it’s intense.

The Star Wars Battlefront 2 trailer primarily shows off the battle in Theed, the royal city from Naboo where we met Queen Amidala in Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. Battle droids and Clone Troopers battle across the city as droid fighters and Naboo starfighters battle above. Then things get really crazy when Darth Maul shows up and stars spinning around his double-bladed lightsaber.

Outside of the trailer, there were a couple more big announcements about the game coming to consoles this fall, including a huge change in how players will get DLC, and the reveal of some more major characters from the saga being playable in the game. Read More »

Star Wars Battlefront 2 Trailer

When Star Wars: The Force Awakens brought the sci-fi saga back in a big way, Star Wars invaded every type of media you could think of, from comics to TV shows to video games. The latter resulted in the revival of one of the most popular video game franchises to take place in a galaxy far, far away: Star Wars Battlefront.

Though Star Wars Battlefront was a big bestseller before The Force Awakens hit theaters, the game ended up disappointing even some hardcore Star Wars fans by not having a campaign mode (creating fast boredom) and having some clunky gameplay, both as a soldier on the ground and as a pilot in space. Thankfully, it sounds like all those problems will be resolved when Star Wars Battlefront II arrives later this year.

Star Wars Battlefront

Yesterday, the 2016 fiscal earnings for Electronics Arts were revealed by the video game company, revealing that Star Wars Battlefront has sold 14 million copies so far. The game was one of the #4 best selling title of 2015, and it’s been selling more and more each month, largely thanks to the expansion packs adding new characters, levels and game variants. With numbers like that, it should come as no surprise that a sequel is on the way.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 has been confirmed by Electronic Arts CFO Blake Jorgensen during this year’s earnings call, but it won’t arrive until 2017. And it’s just one of a handful of Star Wars games intended to be released over the next few years. Find out more after the jump. Read More »
