Our man, James, previewed the game at E3 and said: “All of this was a blast, but it didn’t feel especially new. Now, this isn’t to say that there isn’t some hot new content in Battlefront 2. There will be characters and settings and weapons that players haven’t seen before. But these are fresh modifications to an existing formula. There are rumours (and reports and images and official confirmations) that the game’s story mode was previewed to a select few. Unfortunately, I was not among their number during last night’s event. Still, my brief time with EA’s newest entry in the Battlefront series was both positive and memorable.”
Make sure to get some playtime with the Star Wars Battlefront 2 beta in before it ends on Wednesday morning!
