Just a few days after the grand reveal of “Star Wars: Battlefront 2” at the Star Wars Celebration, EA Dice has revealed more fresh information about the highly anticipated sequel. The follow-up first-person shooter video game, based on the popular “Star Wars” universe created by George Lucas, will feature new worlds and characters from the recent films. Players of the first game should also look out for new exciting gameplay contents, especially on the multiplayer mode.
One of the sound rumors circulating on the internet is that “Star Wars: Battlefront 2” will have dedicated servers. Just recently, the rumor was confirmed by DICE design director Dennis Brannvall via Twitter. As reported by Gamespot, Brannvall revealed that DICE will be putting up servers for the “Battlefront” sequel, the same way with every other video games released by the studio over the past few years.
Brannvall did not reveal details on other game servers, specifically about private and community servers. For now, the dedicated servers will likely be used for large-scale shooter sequences as opposed to a peer-to-peer combat system. Aside from the dedicated servers, fans are also looking forward to the number of improvements expected from the weapon reload system. Brannvall also revealed that major changes are coming for the weapon system in “Star Wars: Battlefront 2,” although he said that more specific details will be disclosed later on.
If there are new things to watch out for in “Star Wars: Battlefront 2,” there will also be contents from the first game that will not make it in the sequel. For one, the Star Cards are not going to be present in the next “Battlefront” title. The Star Cards are used in the first game to get a variety of useful weapons and power-ups, including jetpacks and explosives. More cards will be unlocked for every level-up stage.
As for the new class system in “Star Wars: Battlefront 2,” it was reported that players will not be given as much freedom in the mechanics compared to the first game. However, it was revealed that the class system will now become customizable. To note, reloading weapons in the first “Battlefront” was based solely on cooldowns and overheating mechanics, but the new system will introduce more “traditional” style of reloading, Brannvall revealed in his latest tweet.
“Star Wars: Battlefront 2” will be available in the markets starting on November 17 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC platform.
