In addition to a new trailer, the weekend also saw a few important details from the single-player campaign of Star Wars: Battlefront II.
During a panel at Star Wars Celebration, the development team confirmed various missions that will have players fill the shoes of Luke Skywalker and Kylo Ren. While the two were explicitly mentioned, the panel also made it clear that there are other heroes in the game as well. These will be revealed as we approach closer to release, and will also be playable.
The single-player campaign of Star Wars: Battlefront II will tell a tale from the side of the Empire. It will feature a new character, Iden Versio, an Imperial commander. According to the developer, the game will shift between different perspectives so that players can experience stories from the side of other notable characters in the franchise.
Commenting on the storytelling aspect, game director Mark Thompson stated that switching between different perspectives from protagonist to antagonist is a staple of Star Wars storytelling. It is also something that makes the single-player campaign of the game unique from others.
As such, the development team went the extra mile to include missions starring well-establish heroes in the popular franchise. There is no confirmation on how many missions will be there in the end and how many heroes we will get to play.
Star Wars: Battlefront II is scheduled for an official release on November 17 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Members of EA Access and Origin Access will have the opportunity to try the game out from November 9. As always, there will be a specific time limit to how much you can play during the early access period.
