Star Wars Battlefront 2 is undoubtedly one of the most-anticipated upcoming releases this coming holiday period. Not just because it’s bloody Star Wars – and that’s reason enough alone – but because it seems DICE have taken a lot of the criticism on board with how the first game was received.

We caught up with Niklas Fegraeus, Design Director on Star Wars Battlefront 2 recently to talk all things Star Wars Battlefront 2. Fegraeus discusses the team’s decision to make all the content drops for the title free and how it fractured the player base in the 2015 title.

The Design Director also talks about how they changed the customisation and progression systems, the new class system and why they decided to change the hero system too, opting for a system that now revolves around “Battlepoints.”

We also got chance to talk about those Star Wars fantasies you’ll be able to live out too! Whether it’s Rey versus Darth Maul or Yoda versus Kylo Ren, thanks to all three eras being in SWBF2 you’ll be able to live them out now as if they actually happened. Oh, and we even ask whether we’ll see everyone’s favourite buffoon, Jar Jar Binks, in the title. See what Fegraeus has to say below.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 is out worldwide on November 17th. Check out our multiplayer gameplay from E3 right here

  • I wish it was about making a good game and not screwing over the consumer instead. Disney and EA coming together on a product is the perfect storm in the ways of milking gamers.
  • How about the fantasy where EA doesn't have exclusive development rights to the franchise?
  • I dunno, my fantasy's are pretty vivid. Can I slaughter Gungans? "High-ground" Jar-Jar? Pick off pod racers with Star Destroyer cannons? Hard pass if not.
  • @3 ROFL, I also want to see toe punting Ewoks from Force Unleashed brought back! Good times!
  • And they will stay impossible unless the player hand over all that cash for the drops locked behind paywalls
  • "Star Wars Battlefront 2 Is All About Playing Out Those Impossible Star Wars Fantasies". To me Battlefront 2 is about having a great single player story / experience that they thought was not needed in the first game and caused it to get bland and end up like all other multiplayer only games. My opinion of course.
  • The moment loot boxes got announced i'm not buying this game and i know i'm not the only one pissed about the retarded loot boxes. EA is going to run Battlefront into the ground.
  • Star Wars Battlefront 2 Is All About Playing Out Those Impossible Star Wars Fantasies Or Star Wars Battlefront 2 Is All About Paying Off Those Impossible Credit Card Debts(incurred from microtransactions to level up)
  • People enjoy complaining as they live in ignorance. The loot box's in battlefront are great if you want a new weapon faster. You could also play the game like a normal person and get the same crates for a chance of something. I know I'm sick of leveling up and buying or unlocking stuff in online games, the loot box's system in OverWatch and other games helps not only extend the games life but provides a sense of rng to the mix. This is the same with Destiny 2, you could buy some bright engrams, or earn theme in game. Earning them in game is a breeze, yet people still to this day complain.
