Star Wars: Battlefront got a lot of things right in rebooting the franchise, but it focused exclusively on multiplayer, had some balancing issues, and had a limited number of locations and characters. Battlefront II and ME: Shadow of Mordor will eat the rest of my year. Exponentially more modes, planets, maps, heroes/villains, plus a single-player campaign that looks to have real information for SW fans about the gap inbetween Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens. The opportunity to mix all three eras, the gorgeous graphics, and-really-because this is something Star Wars, makes this must-buy. Plus, free The Last Jedi DLC content will start to arrive free for players the first week of December. If you bought the deluxe version, you’re a go at midnight tonight, but for everyone else, the game will release November 17, 2017, on Xbox One, PC, and PS4.

Featuring new characters created by Motive in close partnership with the story group at Lucasfilm, the Star Wars Battlefront II single player campaign will deliver a new exciting story to the Star Wars universe. Taking place in the 30 years between the destruction of Death Star II and through the rise of the First Order, the single player story introduces Iden Versio, the leader of Inferno Squad, an elite special forces unit of the Galactic Empire, who are equally lethal on the ground and in space. In addition to Iden, players will also encounter and play as other iconic Star Wars heroes and villains like Luke Skywalker and Kylo Ren during the campaign.
In addition to the all-new single player campaign, the team at DICE is evolving the game’s multiplayer to become the ultimate Star Wars battleground. With modes supporting up to 40 players, Star Wars Battlefront II takes fans through a wide range of iconic locations from all three eras: prequel, classic and new trilogy, including new in-game locations such as Yavin 4’s jungle canopies, the spaceport town of Mos Eisley, and Starkiller Base. Players can choose from an array of land and air vehicles and master their own hero’s journey, with customizable character progression across heroes, villains, troopers and starfighters.
As one of the most requested fan modes, galactic-scale space combat is also brought to life in Star Wars Battlefront II. Criterion, with a deep history of creating some of gaming’s fastest and intuitive vehicles, has built space combat from the ground up with refined handling, weapons, and customization options. Players can drop into the cockpit of the galaxy’s most iconic ships, weave between asteroid fields and fly through imperial dockyards in high stakes dogfights.
