The pitch for Star Wars Battlefront II is mind-boggling. Three major development studios are teaming up to create a deep and nuanced multiplayer competitive shooter set across all three Star Wars film eras. Simultaneously, they are developing a new storyline set from the Empire’s perspective that reveals the events between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens. “Ambitious” may be an understatement.
At Star Wars Celebration in Orlando, representatives from EA DICE, EA Motive Studios, and LucasFilm revealed new footage and tantalizing early details for Star Wars Battlefront II, slated for November 17 on PS4.
The material we saw and heard suggests a shooter that’s far bigger, deeper, and more ambitious than its predecessor. And the introduction of a single-player campaign that looks to be making some bold storytelling choices.
Welcome to Star Wars Battlefront II, with a new story mode taking players on an epic journey from the battle of Endor to the rise of the First Order. The prequels, original trilogy, and new era meet in a vast multiplayer adventure coming to PS4 on November 17 (or November 14 if for players who pre-order the Elite Trooper Deluxe Edition).
On behalf of everyone at Criterion Games and DICE, I’m really excited to be able to share the first details about Star Wars Battlefront: X-Wing VR Mission, coming exclusively to PlayStation VR later this year.
Star Wars Battlefront launches today, offering everyone the chance to play as either a Rebel or Imperial fighter in the most immersive Star Wars game to date. To take that immersion to the next level, we want to give one lucky fan the chance to win real-life helmets inspired by the game. So whether you end up fighting as a Rebel or Imperial, you’ll have your very own Magmatrooper helmet and Rebel Commando helmet to go right along with you.
Blasting enemy troopers, dogfighting with iconic starships, playing as Hero characters, creating powerful hands of Star Cards… There’s an entire galaxy of gameplay waiting for you in Star Wars Battlefront — and we want to make your first moments on the battlefront count.
It’s been a long wait, but we’re happy to finally share with you that Mirror’s Edge Catalyst will launch on PS4 next year February 23rd.
With the new game, we wanted to raise the bar for what an action adventure game can be by providing players an opportunity to experience fluid movement and combat, in first person. What fans loved about the original Mirror’s Edge — Faith, fluid movement, and the stylized look of the city — we’ve kept and improved on to provide new gameplay experiences.
