E3 2017 - EA's Keynote: Everything you need to know

E3 2017 - EA's Keynote: Everything you need to know

Though it's yet to be seen if any post-launch single-player content of Star Wars Battlefront II is in the pipelines, the wording of the free content services from Electronic Arts suggests the free seasonal DLC will be fixated on multiplayer features. The theme of the show was certainly on lessons learned - from not segregating the playerbase through offering all DLC for free, to giving fans exactly what they want in recreating every conceivable scenario from their imaginations, the presentation had all that and more. For more updates, stay tuned. Star Wars: The Clone Wars fans, get excited.

This fall, players will be able to jump into a galaxy far, far away with the Star Wars Battlefront II multiplayer beta on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Origin for PC. And there will be no season pass this time round, with passes arriving in seasons for free, similar to Titanfall.

As with almost any big-budget game these days, Star Wars: Battlefront II will have a bunch of downloadable extras, season pass content, and so forth.

The voice of Iden Versio, the talented Janina Gavankar, whose mom joined her for the event, hosted the opening of this event at EA Play and also detailed a few more things for us today. It will take place during the winter and feature new content including six new maps, two of which are nighttime maps. Star Wars Battlefront II will allow players to experience the untold story of an Imperial elite special forces soldier in an all-new single player campaign. We don't know much about it, although Nolan North - who played Uncharted protagonist Nathan Drake and is a friend of Hennig's - said in mid-June 2015 that it is a Star Wars game "in the style of Uncharted".
