Star Wars Battlefront II seems like the game we should’ve received two years ago. At least, that’s the feeling I get after trying out both the singleplayer and multiplayer portions at EA’s “definitely not E3” event EA Play on Saturday, and hearing what’s still in store. Space battles? Check. A proper class system? Check. Maps that draw on all three eras of Star Wars history? Check.
Oh, and did I mention singleplayer? Yeah, that’s probably the most important part. It could still all fall apart before release this November, but here are my initial impressions of Star Wars Battlefront II, one of the many new games shown at EA Play.
