Data miners have gone to work on the closed alpha version of Star Wars: Battlefront II, revealing new juicy bits for fans to chew on.
During the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3 2017) last month, the developer showcased the following four heroes: Han Solo, Boba Fett, Rey, and Darth Maul. Despite the marvelous demonstration of the multiplayer component, many showed concerns about whether or not their favorite characters from the Star Wars universe would make the final cut.
Good news is that Star Wars: Battlefront II will feature a long list of heroes for players to take control of. According to a recent thread on Reddit, the alpha files contain references to over a dozen names. These include Boba Fett, Han Solo, Leia, Luke, Bossk, Chewbacca, Darth Vader, Emperor, Grievous, Iden, Kylo Ren, Lando, Maul, Phasma, Rey, and Yoda.
There is no word on whether this is the final batch of notable characters for the game or if they are the ones who will be available at launch, leaving the developer with additional figures to include as part of post-released content.
Do note that except for the original four heroes, none of the rest are accessible during the ongoing closed alpha testing phase. That being said, there is the possibility of the developer releasing more heroes once we move into beta testing.
Star Wars: Battlefront II is scheduled to release on November 17 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. It is a direct sequel to the original installment, released a couple of years back. In contrast, the second attempt will improve on a lot of aspects. To begin with, there will be a complete single-player campaign for fans to enjoy. In addition, Electronic Arts has promised more meaningful content than before.
