This weekend, Star Wars Battlefront II will be on display at EA Play 2017 at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles. Ahead of attendees getting hands-on time with the game, a few new details have surfaced about the sequel to 2015’s Star Wars Battlefront.
Thanks to the official website, the new Walker mode that sees you trying to stop the invasion of large siege units is called Galactic Assault. In addition, there will be more hero customization options in the sequel.
“Master your hero,” the site noted. “Not just an iconic hero – your hero. Master your craft with customizable character progression. Equip ability modifiers, unique to each hero, trooper class, and starfighter. Use these ability modifiers to adapt and modify your character’s core powers, either as lethal active effects on your opponents, helpful status boosts, or tactical assistance, to counter any opponent on the battlefront.”
Add to all this that PVP Live has gotten word that four new heroes will be on display at EA Play and that there’s also been information shared via social media that Naboo N-1 starfighters will be flyable in the game.
It sounds like there will be a lot to see from Saturday to Monday at EA Play and more details are sure to emerge this weekend.
Star Wars Battlefront II won’t hit game store shelves until the fall, but you can already pre-order the game for new Kylo Ren and Rey costumes from Star Wars: The Last Jedi plus ability upgrades and more. EA Access or Origin Access Members will also be able to the play the first trial of the game beginning November 9. Those who pre-order the Star Wars Battlefront II: Elite Trooper Deluxe Edition will be able to play starting November 14.
Star Wars Battlefront II will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and on Origin for PC November 17, 2017.

8 ‘Star Wars’ Spin-Off Movies We Really Want To See
May the 4th be with you, everyone! Even on May the 8th! With Star Wars weekend in the rear-view mirror, it’s still a great time to kick back, get out your old glow-in-the-dark lightsaber toys and Darth Vader Halloween masks, and pop in those original trilogy DVDs. Maybe even all 8 currently-released films, if you’re up for the challenge (both mental and otherwise). Speaking of which, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story just came out on Blu-ray, marking the first home release of many Star Wars spin-off movies to come.
Of these, only one future title has been confirmed – Han Solo: A Star Wars Story, to be released in May of 2018. Beyond that, we know Disney had at least two more planned, and probably more down the line. And why not? The Star Wars universe is so ripe for exploration. There are so many characters we were introduced to in the Saga movies that could easily get their own film. And it doesn’t stop there. The legacy of the Jedi and the Sith go back thousands of years, opening up virtually endless possibilities of story material.
Given this abundance of material just waiting to be tapped into, Heroic Hollywood decided to celebrate the Star Wars holiday by compiling a list of the Star Wars stand-alone movies we’d most like to see. While some of the films on this list are more likely to be developed than others, they each share one unifying factor: they’d all be freakin’ awesome!
