Star Wars Battlefront II will be making its way to PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on the 17th November 2017 and tells an untold story.
Live the untold Star Wars story of Iden, an elite Stormtrooper, in an original single-player story. Battle on land and in space in an expanded multiplayer experience with iconic heroes and villains, thrilling space battles, and a deep progression and customization system.
Developed by DICE, Motive and Criterion the game adds a single-player campaign which has you fighting on the dark side after the events of Return of the Jedi. You’ll play as Iden Versio, an Imperial elite special forces soldier, although the press release states that players will also encounter, and play as, “other iconic Star Wars heroes and villains.”
Mark Thompson, Game Director at Motive Studios said
We wanted to create a campaign that told a story we haven’t seen before in Star Wars. It was important for us to tell a new authentic story, one that gives players a brand-new perspective. By putting players in the boots of an elite member of the Imperial forces, we can show them what the battle was like from the other side.
Star Wars Battlefront II launches for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on the 17th November.
