Leondro Velarde, Reporter

Star Wars Battlefront 2 will be the direct sequel to 2015’s Star Wars Battlefront, that was focused on the Original Star Wars trilogy. This included characters, locations, and weapons.

The official release date is set for November 17 this year for PC, Xbox One, and PS4. Unlike the first Battlefront in 2015, this second installment will have a single player campaign. The campaign will revolve around the new character, Iden Versio. It all takes place during the 30 year period between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens.

While multiplayer will have 40 players a match. The game includes a class system for troopers, which is customizable and upgradable to fit your play style. Vehicles and hero characters such as Darth Maul, Yoda, Luke Skywalker, and Kylo Ren work in the same way as troopers.

So far there have been 2 pre order editions. The Elite Trooper Deluxe Edition, and the Standard Edition. The Elite Standard Edition includes:

  • 3 day early access to the game
  • Upgraded versions of all 4 trooper classes
  • Upgrade abilities for all classes
  • Kylo Ren and Rey costumes from The Last Jedi
  • Ability modifiers for Rey and Kylo Ren
  • Ability modifier for the Millennium Falcon

While the Standard Edition includes only the last 2 bonuses on the list above.
