In The Force Awakens, there is a fantastic battle set between the Rey and her buddies and the forces of the First Order on the planet of Takodana for Maz Kanata’s fortress. It’s an iconic scene for the film, where Finn goes from abandoning the Empire to full on betraying it. There are lightsabers, cool stormtrooper fisticuffs and of course, various scum and villainy running around trying to fight against stormtroopers.
EA has given us some news on the upcoming Battlefront II, all narrated by Finn himself, showing us the smorgasbord of new features that Battlefront II will have. Key among these will be the ability to join in the battle of Takodana ourselves. You can play as the Resistance, of course, trying to slow down and crush the first order’s attempt to capture such an important place. Or, you can do what I think I’ll do, grab a controller, spawn in as a First Order stormtrooper and scream “Traitor” over and over again at anyone playing for the Resistance.
The attack on Takodana will take place in three stages, with the First Order attempting to capture critical territory, and then take out the Resistance’s defenses. Much like Evolve’s levels changed from play to play based on who won and how, the battlefields of Battlefield II will shift with players meeting or missing objectives, creating a very dynamic experience.
There seem to be a lot of features they’ll be bringing to Battlefield II that fans of the original Battlefield II (from 2005), crave. With the return of much-loved features and the introduction of new and reworked mechanics, Battlefield II should definitely be an interesting experience for fans both old and new.
