The release date for Star Wars Battlefront 2 has not changed. It’s still November 17, but it was once again confirmed that those who are willing to pay a bit more in cash are privileged compared to ‘regular players.’ While that makes sense, it applies explicitly to Electronic Arts, which tries hard to offer extras and bonuses to this category of gamers.
Today, EA released the full version of the SW Battlefront II Deluxe Edition and made it available throughout the globe. The game can be played on both PC and consoles, including Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
Can You Purchase a Deluxe Edition to Start Playing Now?
If you weren’t among the ones that pre-ordered the new Star Wars game, fear not. You can still head to Origin and buy it if you are impatient to play the release. The price stands at $80, which is twenty bucks more than for the standard edition that comes out on Friday. Aside from the instant access to the game, you will also get Rey and Kylo Ren. Lastly, the pack includes a bunch of upgrade goodies available for multiplayer battles.
If you are an Origin Access or EA subscriber, you probably already used the Play First feature that allows you 10 hours of fun with the Battlefront II. In case you didn’t, head to the link above and start testing the first three missions of the single-player campaign.
It was the solo mode that the gaming community missed the most in the original BF released in 2015. The developers listened to the feedback and implemented the immersive story in the sequel. The plot is set after the events in the Return of the Jedi and before the ones that occur in The Force Awakens. You will lead the Inferno Squad; an Imperial unit sent on delicate missions.
As for the game itself, it has received positive reviews, but the microtransactions stole the spotlight. The reaction of the community was so adverse that Electronic Arts significantly reduced the cost of unlocking some of the heroes, including Luke and Darth Wader.
