Electronic Arts Inc. EA  and Lucasfilm Ltd. released Star Wars Battlefront II, one of the most highly-anticipated games of the year

Star Wars Battlefront II won the Game Critics Award for Best Online Multiplayer at E3 2017.

The game’s producers, DICE, Motive Studios and Criterion Games, joined forces to create one of the most robust Star Wars gaming experiences to date.

Fans can immerse themselves in a game that’s nearly three times the size of its predecessor with more heroes, locations and vehicles from every cinematic era, deeper customization, progression, and enhanced space battles.

Star Wars Battlefront II allows players to live out their own Star Wars fantasies as a trooper on the ground, an ace pilot dogfighting in space, and an epic hero dominating the battlefront. In the all-new single player campaign, players will experience a previously untold Star Wars story from the unique perspective of Iden Versio, leader of the Imperial special forces Inferno Squad unit.

“With Star Wars Battlefront II, we wanted to pay homage to the legacy of the Star Wars franchise and recognize how much each era has meant to so many people,” said Matt Webster, Executive Producer of Star Wars Battlefront II.

“We built the game based upon what fans loved about the first game and feedback of what they wanted more of, including adding a single-player story, experiencing the ultimate Star Wars battleground across all cinematic eras, and shifting to an event and narrative driven live service that keeps the community together,” Webster continued.

Star Wars Battlefront II allows fans to play as and against Star Wars’ most feared villains and cherished heroes in DICE’s rich multiplayer experience, including Darth Maul, Rey, Yoda, and joining this December, Finn and Captain Phasma.

Battlefront II also includes six different multiplayer modes: Starfighter Assault, Galactic Assault, Strike, Blast, Heroes vs. Villains, and Arcade.

Unlike its predecessor, Star Wars Battlefront, Battlefront II has a carefully crafted and authentic Star Wars story developed by Motive Studios in partnership with Lucasfilm. The campaign tells the story of what happened in the empire after the events of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi from the perspective of the all new hero, Iden Versio.

“With Star Wars Battlefront II, the teams have brought to life a period of Star Wars that hasn’t previously been explored in the films,” said Steve Blank, Creative Executive, Lucasfilm Story Group. “We’ve worked diligently to craft a compelling story of what it’s like to view a familiar conflict from a very different perspective by allowing players to experience the Battle of Endor and destruction of the second Death Star as an Imperial.”

Star Wars Battlefront II is now available worldwide on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and on Origin for PC.
