Star Wars: Battlefront 2: Release Date, Settings, Heroes | Everything We Know (So Far!)

Everything we know so far!

After taking consideration from the gamers who picked up Star Wars: Battlefront, the 2015 reboot, EA has managed to do some fine tweaking and is delivering a sequel that they hope will be satisfactory for the fans.

With new details about the game released during E3 this year, we have listed down everything we know about the game so far down below.

What’s The Story

Unlike the 2015 reboot, Star Wars: Battlefront, the upcoming sequel will feature a single-player campaign, which is something that players expressed an interest for in the past. Within the narrative, players take on mainly the role of Iden Versio.

Iden Versio is the commander for the Inferno Squadron, a unit within the Imperial Special Forces. After Iden witnesses the destruction of the Second Death Star, she vows to avenge the Emperor.

EA has noted that the game will span thirty years from the start of the Galactic Civil War to the destruction of the Starkiller Base. Players will not be locked into Iden the entire time as other playable characters will come up such as Luke Skywalker and Kylo Ren.
