Star Wars Battlefront 2 Will Have Clone Wars Content in 2018

Star Wars Battlefront 2 Will Have Clone Wars Content in 2018

The new content will focus on Star Wars: Episode 2.

EA and DICE announced further content coming to Star Wars Battlefront 2 starting with new content focusing on the Clone Wars. New heroes and villains from the prequel series will be coming to Battlefront 2 including Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker.

Battlefront 2 will introduce Clone Wars content later this year starting with the battle of Genosis. DICE says this is the largest map ever made for Battlefront 2. Since the battles will take place during the prequel era, DICE is introducing new heroes and villains from the time-period. DICE announced that heroes Obi-Wan and Anakin will be joining the game later this year, and from the villain's side is General Grievous.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 is currently readying content from Solo: A Star Wars Story. But new modes are being prepared including a new starfighter mode focusing on dogfights using hero ships, and an epic war mode for multi-stage campaigns like Battlefield.

This is the second Star Wars announcement after the reveal for Respawn's new Star Wars game, Jedi: Fallen Order.
