Anyone with an Origin Access subscription, 2 can try the full multiplayer mode and the first three missions of the single player campaign for up to 10 hours before the release of Star Wars Battlefront.

Also I have played the first hour in the story mode and it had mixed feelings. For one thing it never wanted to ignite really were the actual fighting.

Like in the movies

Here Battlefront 2 is available in the single player mode actually all the show values ​​that a Star Wars fan could want. The scenes are again extremely detailed and nicely thanks to Frostbite engine and photogrammetry and the sound effects absolutely perfect. Blaster fire and the screeching of TIE Fighter sounds like in the movie, the characters seem almost lifelike, especially in the dialogues.

Graphically draws Star Wars: Battlefront 2 as usual all the stops.Graphically draws Star Wars: Battlefront 2 as usual all the stops.

I am also inspire great Skripsequenzen how the seemingly seamless The transition from the outer space to the bottom battle: In one scene I first graduate from dogfights and then landing unceremoniously in the hangar of a rebel cruiser to really sleep clean up there, then you go on foot - terrific!

In general, it is refreshing to pull even on the part of the Empire in the fight and to take on the alliance. Nor refreshing it would be, however, if they do not like straw doofes cannon fodder would accuse my blaster.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 - Good campaigns should not feel like bot matches


About the author:
Phil wishes for many years once again a single-player game in the Star Wars universe. Since The Force Unleashed 2 from 2010 prevails on this front that is complete doldrums, while the world has to tell so many exciting stories! That's why he was so excited when EA and DICE a story mode for Battlefront 2 announced and that's why he is so concerned that this just degenerates into trivial shooting. Because if you already plays on the side of the Empire, but then also please momentous battles in which the rebel scum know me so right!

Like lemmings

In practice, the opponents behave everything but smart: Opponent groups are haphazardly together, waiting to be shot or storm rows blindly into a room. It almost seems as if just a bunch of bots spawned into the match.

Atmosphere comes in the fighting at any rate hardly noticeable. The encounters with the rebels act arbitrarily and unexciting and the great setting can not conceal that the level has just turned into an arena.

Unhelpful is that the locations are only set pieces from multiplayer maps in the broader sense that one recognizes quickly. Interface and even the Hitmarker are identical - in solo mode, absolutely unnecessary for me. So often flies the magic of the game world and the clumsy, bare gameplay is revealed. Here Call of Duty makes before for years how to stand out by making small changes the gaming experience in single player mechanically from the multiplayer.

Iden version wipes almost in passing in the first hour of the campaign with dozens of rebels on the ground.Iden version wipes almost in passing in the first hour of the campaign with dozens of rebels on the ground.

For the rest of the campaign, I hope, therefore, that the enemy encounters get as much soul as the great setting. Exciting script sequences as the TIE Fighter Landing are a great example! It would be incredibly unfortunate if a single-player campaign in the Star Wars universe degenerates into a multiplayer match with bots and cutscenes.

So begins Battlefront 2: An unusual Campaign Start
