It looks like EA learned their lessons from the last one.

Bit more hopeful for this.

Looks like they do the same thing Pandamic did for the originals and make Battlefront 2 the one that is worth playing.


I miss the old Revan,

The amnesia Revan, switching them sides Revan

I hate the new Revan, the Legends Revan

SWTOR Revan, beefin with everyone Revan

I miss the cool Revan, "Heart of the Force" Revan

See I invented Revan, It wasn't any Revans

And now I look and look around and see Darth Maul is Revan

I used to love Revan, I used to love Revan

I even had that Red Mask, I thought I was Revan

What if Revan turned out to be Revan

And he relises he was Revan ? Man, that'd be so Revan

That's all it was Revan, we still love Revan

And I love you like Revan loves Revan

I'm just looking forward to the Empire's perspective of the Galactic Civil War, following the emperor's death. Hopefully. they will not connect it to whatever that abomination is called with the stupid looking stormtroopers....

I'm guessing that the story mode would be a continuation of the original Battlefront II's campaign? IIRC the campaign for Battlefront II finishes at Episode V so the new one would take place from Episode VI and beyond?

Battlefront II's story doesn't exist in the New Canon.

Instead, Battlefront 2 will focus on an elite stormtrooper squad called Inferno Squad and their time after the Battle of Endor. To me the year between Endor and Jakku sounds very interesting because the Emperor's planned that if he dies, the Empire should go down with him.

What would be hilarious is if, for whatever reason, DICE crashes and burns before Battlefront 3 is released. Even better: leaked footage of the game it could have been. BONUS: Rinse & repeat.

It will be difficult for us all but we must contain our expectations.

 

Remember how awesome the trailer of the first game was? The way they Showed the gameplay?

 

 

Game of the year we scream as we were expecting a game that was as groundbreaking as it was deep as an ocean,only to be crushed with disappointment as we saw in front of us a game that was as outrageous as it was shallow as a puddle.

 

We must wait and see if this game shall redeem that sad excuse for a game.

 

And also they still have to confirm that it will have "Galactic Conquest" game mode (Only then they will have my attention).

"No one is immune from failure. All have tasted the bitterness of defeat and disappointment. A warrior must not dwell on that failure, but must learn from it and continue on. But not all learn from their errors. That is something those who seek to dominate others know very well, and know how to exploit. If an opponent has failed once at a logic problem, his enemy will first try the same type of problem, hoping the failure will be repeated. What the manipulator sometimes forgets, and what a warrior must always remember, is that no two sets of circumstances are alike. One challenge is not like another. The would-be victim may have learned from the earlier mistake. crossing of life paths". - Thrawn

 

"All strive for victory. But not all understand what it truly is. To a soldier or pilot on the line, victory is surviving the current battle. To a politician, victory is an advantage one can bring to a bargaining table. To a warrior, victory is driving an enemy from the field of battle, or bringing him to surrender. Sometimes the victory is greater than the warrior could ever hope for. Sometimes it is more than he is able to bear". - Thrawn

There's a difference this time though;

 

  • Thrust of the story is seeing things from the Empires POV. Who are their heroes etc
  • MP across all eras, Prequel, OT and new movies.
  • Class system returns. (Assault, Officer, Heavy, and Specialist)
  • Still 20v20 matches.
  • Classes, Vehicles and Heroes are upgradable. Progression system for everything.
  • Heroes no longer tied to token pick ups, instead you earn a resource and can choose where and when to spend it.
  • Space Battles are back with ship heroes. (Millennium Falcon, Lukes X-Wing, Slave 1, Jedi Fighter etc)
  • Splitscreen co-op.
  • Vehicles like the droid spider tank and republic walkers confirmed, though nothing about whether they're still using tokens.
  • Instant action with bots is in.
  • Hoth, Endor, Mos Eisley, Naboo, Kamino, Starkiller Base, Jakku, Takodana, Yavin IV, Vardos, Scarif & more.
  • Certain modes feature heroes from all eras against each other. (Maybe hero assault from the original BF2?)
  • No plans for season pass/maps blocked by paywall.
  • November 2017 release.

 

Still, caution is wise- but there's no need to be negative just yet. I recommend hoping for the best but keeping your expectations grounded.

BTW, Inferno Squad also get's a novel by Christie Golden which is about them hunting down the remenants of Saw Gerrera's partisans during their first mission.

so this ties in with the details the aftermath books have given us?

I also hate to go off topic but sidious didn't want the empire destroyed, merely re built... Which is why he sent the eclipse into unknown space with (whom I believe) thrawn at the helm. It was mentioned in the last aftermath book if you read carefully

Bf2 sounds too good to be true right now... I am not pre ordering it like the first

Dark disciple by Christie Golden was fantastic so I'm eagerly anticipating that book, it'll sit alongside Lost Stars, Thrawn, Dark Disciple and the Darth Bane Trilogy on my shelf.

True, still we must stay vigillant for even the slightest cuts they would (in my opinion) make in this new game.

 

I just can't bring myself to imagine that this game will have the classical capture the command post or capture the flag mods from the original BF2, neither that this new space battles would allow you to use the turrets from your cruiser to destroy enemy ships or that they would have that awesome cargo vessel that would allow you and your team to invade the enemy ship to sabotage their systems (shield generator, engines, live support system and auto-turret defenses), and if you die, you could respawn inside the enemy ship (If your cargo vessel is still intact inside her of course).

 

Also, they didn't say that they would bring back the "Total War" mode that was present in maps such as Hoth and Geonosis, neither the "Hunt" mode that were in maps such as the ones that I mentioned before and also in Tatooine, Endor and Felutia.

 

There are other things here an there, and I could made a hole manifesto about it, but Tarkin said that a statement would suffice XD

 

So...Let's just wait and see what the future holds for us all.

 

Until then MTFBYW, always
