“Star Wars: Battlefront 2” was officially announced last week and several details about the upcoming sequel were also confirmed. However, it still left a lot of questions unanswered that the developers of the game gladly acknowledged online.
“Star Wars: Battlefront 2” will have an Elite Trooper Deluxe Edition which will include additional upgraded abilities for each Trooper classes, weapons and hero characters from “The Last Jedi.” Fans were wondering if this extra content will be exclusive to that version of the game.
Game designer Christian Johannesen responded to that question on Twitter by saying that the extra content on the Elite Trooper Deluxe Edition “can be unlocked by playing.” He didn’t specify if all of those can be unlocked, but it looks like at least some of it can be by simply playing and progressing on the standard edition of “Battlefront 2.”
One benefit that appears to be exclusive to the deluxe edition is that those who purchase it will be able to play the game three days early, as pointed out by Games Radar. The Elite Trooper Deluxe Edition of “Battlefront 2” costs $80, while the standard version of the game is $60.
As for other details on the multiplayer aspect of the game, associate game design director Dennis Brannvall also confirmed on Twitter that “Battlefront 2” will continue using dedicated servers like the 2015 game. He also shared some insight on the new class system stating that it will allow gamers to customize classes to fit their style, but won’t offer the same level of “freedom” as the Star Card system, according to GameSpot. Officer, Assault, Heavy and Specialist are the four Trooper classes available in the game.
Brannvall also briefly talked about “Battlefront 2’s” reloading system for weapons saying that it may be a combination of both reloads and cooldowns. He didn’t give out any specifics, but did say that they were doing improvements and that they’ll “have more details later.”
There’s also some mystery as to what EA and DICE have in store for “Battlefront 2’s” post-launch content. The developers have confirmed that the game won’t have a Season Pass for DLCs, only stating that it will have “something different” and “something better” instead.
“Star Wars: Battlefront 2” is scheduled to be released on Nov. 17 for the PS4, Xbox One and the PC.
