Heard a few good tidbits in the last few SWHQ videos.

Jump Troopers and Super Battle Droids will not be able to roll and cross era heroes is not a for sure thing. While it was shown in the initial live stream, cross era hero play might only happen in “hero” only gamemodes.




LOL. In the game you could roll left or right to dodge. Jump Troopers will not be able to do so due to the Jump Pack on their back. Super Battle Droids because of their size.


Ah, dodge roll, okay. For a moment I thought I had missed the part where Jump Troopers and Super Battle Droids could roll around like Droidekas.


Not sure how I feel about this. On one hand, I can see this being frustrating when all the good players are maxed out and destroying you… on the other hand, loot systems like this are addicting and I can see myself playing this game even more than the first because something in my brain loves leveling up characters.


Yeah, I can’t tell if it was how talked down to I felt while watching the video, or the system itself that turned me off. I can’t say I’m too concerned as I honestly don’t feel like I will be playing enough for it to really matter much, but it just seems like such an unoriginal system that it almost feels lazy. I shouldn’t be surprised considering the unbelievably lazy power-up system in the last, I was just expecting something more creative this time around. Oh well, I’ll still buy it.

Alright, lazy is harsh, I’m sure it took a lot of work to implement the system, I’m just so sick of the same exact loots systems in every multiplayer AAA game released, but I guess you go with what works.


It’s either this… or DLC map packs that segregate the user base. I think I’ll give this a shot.


I have no problem with any of this.


We have some good news: Star Wars Battlefront II’s open beta is coming this October.

We know you’re eager to find out what’s headed your way in the beta. Here’s what’s inside:

Galactic Assault on Naboo
Join the Separatist droid army or the Republic Clones on the streets of Theed in massive 40 player multiplayer melees.
Choose from four distinct trooper classes:
Assault troopers are classic flankers, pushing the line forward and advancing the front.
Heavy troopers use their high-powered weapons and personal body shields to take ground and hold it.
Officers power up their teammates with buffs and deploy remote weapons to support their allies.
Specialists lay traps and snipe from a distance.
Control beloved Star Wars heroes, pilot prequel-era vehicles, and more.

Multiplayer Starfighter Assault
We’re not sharing all the details around this yet, but we can tell you that you’ll be able to take part in an epic starfighter assault set during the original trilogy era, piloting an assortment of Star Wars’ greatest ships in an objective-based, multi-stage battle. You’ll be learning much more about starfighters in Star Wars Battlefront II at gamescom.

When can you start playing?
If you pre-order Star Wars Battlefront II, you can jump into the beta early. Players who pre-order gain access to the beta October 4 – the beta opens to the public October 6, and lasts through October 9.

Clear your schedule, tell your friends, and get ready to get a glimpse into the beautiful, massive world of Star Wars as you never have before.

How Do I Get in Early?
Pre-Order Star Wars Battlefront II from PlayStation Store for early access to the beta, as well as a number of other content bonuses. And keep an eye on PlayStation and on EA Star Wars on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram for the latest news on what’s coming next.





I really hope it moves faster than BF1. I liked it but it felt slow at times.


Criterion, the devs behind Burnout, have done all the vehicle combat… so… it should be fast and awesome.




I’ve got a GOOD feeling about this.


Beta Details


Ahh, didn’t realize that was Beta at first, and those dates were scaring me, not like November is going to be much better. I guess I’ll have to get rid of a kid. Anybody interested?


Outta my way!!!


I can only assume that the “Arcade” mode is that Survival mode from last year?
