The Top Ten
Players will be able to select from one of the four classes every time the spawn into Battlefront 2 ’s 20-versus-20 multiplayer ground battles. The assault trooper is a more generic class, akin to what was available in the original game. The heavy trooper is less mobile, but brings tons of firepower including a massive rotary autolaser. There’s also the specialist, who uses longer ranged weapons with scopes. Finally, there’s the officer class, a support role that can provide healing.
Like 2015’s Battlefront, DICE developed the multiplayer portion of the sequel. The game’s multiplayer maps and characters will be taken from all three eras of Star Wars films. This time around, users will be able to play as Luke, Yoda, Darth Maul, Rey, and others. Once again, multiplayer maps will feature up to 40 players per match. Three maps have been confirmed so far: Yavin 4, Mos Eisley, and Starkiller Base. - OfC

Kylo Ren is a playable hero for the First Order in Star Wars Battlefront II. He is the son of Han Solo and Leia, Luke's nephew and Vader's grandson. - OfC
In Battlefront 2, the lasers feel like chunky retro future weapons, replete with more recoil, rhythm, and scatter to make them feel like deadly light containers on the verge of exploding at any minute. These lasers don’t go pew-pew, they go BOOSH BOOSH. Or something. Whatever a laser and a football tackle sound like combined. - OfC
Visually, Star Wars Battlefront II is just frankly ridiculous. Despite churning out games on a yearly basis now, DICE still manages to make impressive strides forward in visual quality. It’s all once more powered by Frostbite 3, and DICE proves yet again that it’s the best in the business at portraying large-scale battles. - OfC
"I think the main thing here is to keep the community together," Fegraeus said about Battlefront II's free DLC model. "In terms of the brand, to me, when it comes to Star Wars, that's a family feeling. If you're a fan, you're a part of the family. And splitting that up and saying, 'If you have this content you can play here, but if you have this content you can play here.' And if you don't share, you will be split up. What we wanted to do was have a journey that starts at the launch of the game. So when the game launches, this journey starts with different seasons [of DLC]." - OfC
