I think that more people from here at the first game on PS4 so I'll buy it there first. I'll pick up the PC version as well if it has a good userbase.

The last one was very shallow so I'll hang on before buying this and make sure they actually deliver a £40 game first.

I know it might be a mistake to pre-order it, but hot diggity dizzle it's makin me jizzle.

Oh and calling it now: Luke and Special Forces Woman get together and make Rey. This is why the story must be canon - it's Rey's origin story.

Only seems like the first one just came out. Will they include all the content from that in this one?

Classic EA.

Might seem that way but it will have been 2 years by the time this is out. Not unreasonable at all.

Looks awesome! Enjoyed the first one for what it was, though it suffered a chronic lack of depth. Fingers crossed they're rectifying that in this.

I bet we'll see that debut at E3. I expect that we'll see a full DLC pack of VR stuff.

Unfortunately not.

Well maybe, but the 'evidence' they've got there is a tweet that Criterion are making 'something awesome in Battlefront II', we already know they are making the space combat part of the game and that definitely qualifies as something awesome.

Doesn't mean they aren't making some VR content too (or maybe that whole mode will be VR compatible), but you can't read that into that tweet.

The game's singleplayer story is in good hands, kinda:

Star Wars Battlefront 2 will have a proper story campaign, and we’re pretty interested to see where it goes after finding out where it came from.

Following the shooter’s formal reveal this weekend, Spec Ops: The Line writer Walt Williams‏ revealed on Twitter that he’s co-writing the game with Mitch Dyer, formerly an editor at IGN.

While we’re keen to see Dyer’s work in Star Wars Battlefront 2 (we naturally like to see and celebrate current and former games journalists doing exciting things), Williams is a heck of a card to come into play. Spec Ops: The Line, penned by Williams and colleague Richard Pearsey, is widely celebrated for its storytelling, which leverages the unique strengths of video games and draws heavily on the traditions of Heart of Darkness to deliver an experience we once ranked among the games most likely to mess you up, profoundly.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 has a lot of scope for interesting narratives, too. Although the campaign will feature multiple playable characters including Luke Skywalker, the primary protagonist of Star Wars Battlefront is Iden, a member of the Imperial special forces. Her perspective recontextualises the end of Return of the Jedi as a defeat rather than a victory.

Fans of the Extended Universe have had plenty of opportunities to see things from the viewpoint of the “bad guys”, and multiple Star Wars video games have done it, too. But since none of that is canon any more, it’s great to see Disney kicking off further exploration of the dark side of the Star Wars saga. Star Wars Battlefront 2 is canon, by the way; a new novel comes out in July to tell the story of Iden’s troop, Inferno Squad.


http://www.vg247.com/2017/04/18/star-wa ... ne-writer/

Not really sure about that ex-IGN editor being the co-writer, I'd have preferred someone with known writing chops, but Williams being involved is a great sign.

Meanwhile, some people will be able to get their hands on the game early via the Access programs, about a week early:

DICE has now confirmed that EA and Origin Access subscribers get to jump in over a week prior to the game’s launch. The floodgates open on November 9, though details about exactly what type of content you can expect in this trial have yet to be revealed.

Judging by how EA handled similar launches in the past, expect one or two missions from the single-player campaign to be playable, with unrestricted access to multiplayer.


http://www.vg247.com/2017/04/18/star-wa ... -revealed/

And about that season pass, and the lack thereof...

Some of the information pertains to the game’s post-launch support, and it should make fans of the original very happy. The developer confirmed to Mashable that Battlefront 2 will not have a season pass. Though this does not always mean there won’t be DLC packs, creative director Bernd Diemer went to clarify his comment further.

“We decided on that, and it’s one of those difficult decisions because it has so many implications all around,” he said.

“When we looked at the way Battlefront had evolved over its lifetime, with the DLC and everything, we decided, ‘You know what? For this type of game, season passes are not the best thing’. We need to [take it apart] and come up with something better.”

Diemer added that DICE does not want to segment the community, and confirmed that post-launch plans will be revealed at a later date. “[..] we have something different in mind that will allow you to play longer, be [more] invested in the game without having a fragmented community.”


Interestingly, following Diemer’s comments, EA provided the site with a statement saying it’s not ready confirm post-launch plans just yet, which could just mean they haven’t been finalised. It’s unlikely the game’s creative director is incorrect.

I know how to spell Moosetoofar, thank you very much. I was poking fun at the way he pronounced it.
