You may have already seen the (now yanked) leaked Battelfront 2 footage from earlier today, showing off some rather impressive looking gameplay. That leaked footage showed battles featuring Darth Maul (from Star Wars: The Phantom Menace) and Rey (from Star Wars: The Force Awakens) and even a little Boba Fett.

It’s fast paced and thrilling stuff for fans of Star Wars. The first rebooted Battlefront from EA was a decent game, but it felt like it was lacking content – particularly in the single player arena.

“It’s quite possibly the most authentic Star Wars shooter ever made thanks to some amazing visual production values, but with shallow action and very little ambition to do more than necessary. Just like the films.”

It seems that EA has addressed the feedback and criticism – and the game will be receiving a proper offline story mode – exactly what people have been asking for since Battlefront’s release. It wont follow the stories told in the movies – but lets players play through a new Star Wars story that bridges the gap between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens. Also, taking a page from Titanfall 2, all players will get all maps for free. Hooray!

Editor. I’m old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time – they were capable of being masterpieces. I’m here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.

    I didn’t bother with Battlefront 1, and I doubt the second one will pique my interest, but I’m sure the Star Wars fans will eat this up.

      I wasn’t keen on the 1st one after playing it at rAge but this looks much better

    WTF EA not charging for season updates, new playavle characters free, not ew weapons free, new maps free …… Is it a trap.

    Well Battlefront 2 better be good with pproer single player as promised since it ia why Andromeda had crappy faces.

    Which also is awesome looks like the SP campaign will at least in part be a story from the Empire.
