ABOUT THE GAME - STRAIGHT FROM EA

Star Wars Battlefront II is an upcoming action shooter based on the Star Wars film franchise. It is the fourth major installment of the Star Wars: Battlefront series and seventh overall, and a sequel to the 2015 reboot of the series. It is under development by EA DICE in collaboration with Criterion Games and Motive Studios, and published by Electronic Arts.

Unlike its 2015 predecessor, it features a story-driven single-player campaign and multiplayer character classes; it also features cross-era characters and locations from the original, prequel, and sequel Star Wars movie trilogies. The game is scheduled to be released worldwide on November 17, 2017,

Singleplayer

The second iteration of this franchise will be featuring a campaign, similarly to the original Pandemic game of the same name, with a full campaign storyline rather than being solely focused on multiplayer as DICE's first Battlefront was. The game's singleplayer protagonist, Iden Versio, leader of an Imperial Special Forces group known as Inferno Squad, played by Janina Gavankar, will be participating in the events leading up to The Force Awakens. There will be segments in the campaign where the player will be able to control characters such as Luke Skywalker and Kylo Ren.

Multiplayer

Instead of the paid Season Pass downloadable content (DLC) seen in the 2015 predecessor, this game is expanded with free DLC provided to all players with a free EA account. Lead actress Janina Gavankar stated that the DLC would be free to all players, using a seasonal structure similar to Overwatch and Rainbow Six Siege. There are many playable heroes from each movie era, including: Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, Emperor Palpatine, Boba Fett, Yoda, Darth Maul, Han Solo, Rey, Kylo Ren, Finn, Princess Leia, Lando Calrissian, Bossk, Chewbacca, and Captain Phasma; although both Finn and Captain Phasma will be released in a wave of content after the initial release. The planet to be released alongside them is Crait, seen in the trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

  • Mushroom Wars 2 Review

    Mushroom Wars 2 is a wonderful title to play and an amazing competition to watch. There’s so much to talk about, anticipate, and be surprised by, that you should expect this title to live on for many, many years. The developers have been truly successful of creating the tools for a competitive player to use — and then getting the hell out of the way; Zillion Whales leaves us with a trendsetting, unrivaled masterpiece, and then lets us play it the way we want to play it.

  • ELEX Review

    ELEX is an ode to fans of Gothic and Risen, and fans will most likely be satisfied. How detailed the title is makes it clear: Piranha Bytes isn’t trying to cash in on an aging franchise.  That being said, the issues cannot be brushed aside. It’s been nearly two decades since the studio published its first game, Gothic I, and what plagued the earlier titles plagues ELEX as well. And that, is a problem.

  • Destiny 2 Review

    All the elements are there: you’re gunning down massive hordes of baddies and you’re doing so with outstanding visual fidelity, a variety of weapons, and you’re able to cause this mayhem using big, explosive abilities. But, a bit too much of Destiny 2’s action is watered down by long cooldowns, the lazy sit-behind-cover until you’re full-health again, and the way enemies completely lose their ability to aim once your health hits the blinky-red portion of the on-screen health bar. The stakes always seem so low, the rewards so random and barely earned. It’s not a bad game, but it’s not one that lives up to the lofty expectations set by the way it’s marketed and talked about by its fans.  Miles wide, but an inch deep: Destiny 2 is not the game it should be.

  • Deceit Review

    The concept is great and the execution is far from bad, but there is room for improvement. The maps are rich and make each game feel incredibly singular and flustered in a different way. But, the weapons feel weak and movements feel awkward. There’s much potential and excitement to be had in Deceit, and even more screams and scares.

  • The Jackbox Party Pack 4 Review

    The Jackbox Party Pack 4 includes six (well, five and a half) new Jackbox party titles for a quick laugh with a lot of friends or family. The different titles included can be fun, and if your friends and family are crazy, they can be a blast; enjoyment really falls down how rowdy you’re willing to be.

  • Overgrowth Review

    Overgrowth, while fun for a while, misses the mark for a captivating story or combat. The world feels uninviting and dead, giving off the feel of a game from the early 2000’s when the processing power of hardware was much more limiting. The combat is fast-paced and fun, but it lacks depth and eventually goes stale. The story that ties it all together feels loose and lacks impact, each character blends into another and consequently prevents the player from connecting at a deeper level. The title does shine for the first hour or two, but it quickly loses its flair.
