EA sets out Clone Wars roadmap for Star Wars: Battlefront II


Electronic Arts has revealed a roadmap for incoming Star Wars: Battlefront II content which will bring the Clone Wars to the online shooter.

As set out on the Star Wars: Battlefront II website, a large amount of new content will be coming to Star Wars: Battlefront II in the coming months. Among the highlights include the debut of the hero General Grievous, plus his counterpart Obi-Wan Kenobi and Count Dooku, the arrival of a new Squad System and a new Galactic Assault map, Geonosis, which, EA says: “Is known as a major theatre of conflict during the Clone Wars. Traversing the Geonosian home world will be even more exciting with the addition of three new vehicles: the STAP, the BARC speeder, and the AT-TE.” 

EA describes the new Squad System thus: “September will mark the arrival of the new Squad System, bringing the ability for players to spawn on squad members, available first in Galactic Assault, Blast, and Strike modes. Aimed to encourage team play, the Squad System is an improved and streamlined way for players to stick together in Star Wars Battlefront II.” September will also see the arrival of the 91st Mobile Reconnaissance Corps and 104thWolfpack Battalion in the game. 

October and November updates will bring General Grievous, Obi-Wan Kenobi and the Geonosis map, while Count Dooku, a new Large-Scale Mode (described as: “A non-linear Star Wars sandbox experience. In this mode two teams battle for capture points and to ultimately bring down capital ships”) and the ability to play as a light-side Anakin Skywalker will arrive this winter. For more information, keep an eye on the game’s website.
