Star Wars: Battlefront II for PC, PS4 and XONE is a sequel to the 2015 multiplayer FPS game set in the Star Wars universe, and the fourth game in the franchise that was created by Pandemic in 2004. The game was released on many platforms, including PC. Each part of the game was developed by a different studio: DICE created the game’s multiplayer mode, space battles were created by Criterion, and the single player campaign was created by Motive, a studio led by Jade Raymond.
The story in Star Wars: Battlefront II for PC, PS4 and XONE begins right after the destruction of the second Death Star. We play as Iden Versio, leader of the Inferno Squad, the Empire’s special forces. Her job is to avenge the Emperor. As we play, we will meet both completely new characters and the heroes known from the movies, among them – Luke Skywalker.
In terms of gameplay mechanics, Star Wars: Battlefront II for PC, PS4 and XONE is not that different from the next science-fiction first-person shooters. The gameplay is focused on completing quests and eliminating hordes of enemies with a wide range of weapons based on the weaponry from the Star Wars movies. Space battles, where we can fly space ships and fighters, are a new addition to the game.
Unlike the previous game, Star Wars: Battlefront II for PC, PS4 and XONE offers a rich single player campaign. Of course, it wouldn’t be a Battlefront game without a multiplayer mode. Up to forty players can take part in online matches. We can customize our gadgets, vehicles, and the soldier we play as (or one of the fim saga’s heroes, we can play as Luke Skywalker, Rey, Kylo Ren, Yoda, Darth Maul, and many others). Matches take place on diverse maps, like the Starkiller base, Mos eisley, or Yavin 4.
The beautiful 3D visuals of Star Wars: Battlefront II look astonishing no matter what platform we play on. Developers spent a lot of time on polishing and fine-tuning every visual aspect of the game, from character models, through highly detailed weapons, to the detailed locations. Star Wars: Battlefront II also has a beautiful soundtrack that has the feel of George Lucas’ original movies.
