Star Wars Battlefront II's free post-launch content plans detailed

After much pleading, EA stated that Battlefront II would indeed feature a story mode after Star Wars Battlefront didn't include one due to time constraints.

Kicking things off with their Madden franchise, Electronic Arts CEO Andrew Wilson introduced never-before-seen footage of a new National Football League storyline.

Unlike the previous Battlefront game, Battlefront II will have the highly-demanded single-player campaign, set between the stories of Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens.

We should probably expect to see more story stuff at Sony's E3 conference as the game is being marketed primarily for the PlayStation 4 audience.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 gets a gameplay trailer, with lots of explosions, flying, lightsabers, shooting, droids, and shooting. However, there is the ability to play as just about any character imaginable from the films throughout the 40 years of "Star Wars" lore.

The game will arrive on PS4, Xbox One, and PC on November 17, 2017. Free expansions will keep more players playing for longer, and that in turn will mean more opportunities for EA to sell crates.


EA finished off their E3 2017 event with a fifteen minute Battlefront 2 multiplayer match.

As with almost any big-budget game these days, Star Wars: Battlefront II will have a bunch of downloadable extras, season pass content, and so forth.

Video game stories from other sites on the web. With the demo featuring more explosions than your average Call of Duty title, Payback looks big, silly and fun. In addition, players will find new vehicles and weapons as well as the Russian Army.

In the Name of the Tsar, coming in September, brings the game to the eastern front, delivering six new maps and new playable units.

EA of course devoted a good chunk of its press conference time to three of its annual sports titles: FIFA, Madden, and NBA Live. CEO Andrew Wilson comes on, claiming it will be the most innovative game in the series so far.

EA also unveiled an outline of its post-launch strategy for Battlefront 2 as well, stating there will be themed seasons of content available at no extra charge to players.
