Action 17 November 2017

Star Wars: Battlefront II is a sequel to the 2015 multiplayer FPS game and the fourth game in the cult series that was started eleven years earlier by Pandemic. Unlike the previous game, Battlefront II offers both a complex multiplayer mode and a single player campaign set right after the destruction of the second Death Star. Iden Versio, the game's protagonist and the leader of the Empire's special forces, is given the task of avenging the Emperor. Different studios developed different parts of the game. The single player campaign was created by studio Motive, lead by Jade Raymond. Space battles were created by Criterion, and the multiplayer mode, key element of the game, was developed by DICE. Up to forty players can take part in online battles and play one of the four available classes. Additionally, we can customize characters, vehicles, and gadgets. It is worth mentioning that the game presents more than the original trilogy (episodes IV-VI). We will meet, and play as, heroes from different eras of the Star Wars universe, like Rey and Kylo Ren from The Force Awakens or Darth Maul from The Phantom Menace.
