At the recent E3 2017 video gaming convention in Los Angeles, game-play simulators were set up to demonstrate the soon to be released Star Wars game, Battlefront 2. They also released samples of the video online, which have been astounding gamers. The video looks extremely sleek and realistic, and the style of play appears to have addressed some of the concerns that stemmed from the release of the first Battlefront.
In this game, possibly more so than even the first, you get to play through some of the pivotal battles of the entire Star Wars universe. It now includes some action from the most recent sequel in the saga, “The Force Awakens”. You will fly some of the most epic ships, like the Millenium Falcon and an X-wing. There will also be hero versus hero mode, which allows you to pit different characters from the saga against one another, like Rey, Han Solo, and Darth Maul.
The improvements appear to come in how they have designed the class system for characters, each with individual and specific abilities and weapons. Blaster slingers, like Solo, have an array of weapons to choose from. Jedi, like Rey, or Sith, like Maul, have multiple lightsabers.
This requires more of a team element within the game, where you have to match the skills of the squad mates more than was required within the original. This gives more direction and realism to the battle sequences, rather than more of a random approach.
The ground vehicle and space ship control seem improved as well. They are more like a real part of the game rather than just a tagged in afterthought. There are also still plenty of single-player battles to try.
Check out this video of the clone trooper game play, complete with the “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” voice actor for the clone army troopers, as well as the ever-annoying battle droids. Have fun blowing them up, especially once you get one of the AT-RT walkers.
