Star Wars Battlefront II has grand ambitions: a deeper and more engaging online competitive mode, battles that will wage across all Star Wars film time periods, and robust new vehicle combat.
But it’s the new single-player campaign that’s sure to catch the eye of series devotees, particularly in its promise to explore that shadowy period between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens.
In the final part of our interview with the game’s senior development staff — including EA Motive’s Mark Thompson and EA Criterion Games’ Matt Webster — we learn more about how EA’s development teams are managing the Herculean expectations that come with developing Star Wars Battlefront II.
Hard to believe that it’s already been more than a month (A whole month!) since EA announced Star Wars Battlefront II at Star Wars Celebration in Orlando, Florida.
Though details are still scarce, it’s clear that Battlefront II is shaping up to be an ambitious game that looks to expand upon its predecessor’s popular competitive multiplayer in a host of ways: deeper customization, more playable heroes, and a story-driven, single-player mode.
So we jumped at the chance to spend a few minutes with some of the game’s lead designers, including Mark Thompson, director at EA Motive, and Matt Webster, executive producer at EA Criterion Games.

By now many of you have probably explored the galaxy far, far away that is LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens (if you haven’t, then what are you waiting for?!). One of the lingering questions I’m sure you’ve had is… what’s the deal with C-3PO’s red arm?
Wait no longer. The Phantom Limb Level Pack let’s you experience these events, while collecting new characters and a cool vehicle along the way. This downloadable content is a free exclusive for PS4 and PS3 players!
Alongside the galaxy of features within LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens, we’re pleased to report that PS4 and PS3 players will also be receiving some free DLC content with the exclusive Droids Character Pack coming right at launch on June 28.
Hi everyone! Star Wars day is tomorrow and we’re celebrating early here at PlayStation store with steep discounts, free themes and more.
One of the most amazing parts of all of this is being able to work with Lucasfilm to create new game content with the characters and locations from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, told in a way that only LEGO Star Wars can. Through a strong collaboration with Lucasfilm, we’ve been able to create new stories and adventures connecting the Star Wars narrative, both before and tying into the movie. As such huge fans of the franchise, it’s a tremendous honor to have that privilege.
