Star Wars Battlefront II takes the best-selling Star Wars® video game of all time one Imperial-walker step forward with all-new space combat, playable Jedi, and never-before-played environments straight out of Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith.
Fans of the original Star Wars Battlefront will also enjoy an all-new single-player experience that takes players through an epic, story-based saga centered around Darth Vader’s personal stormtroopers, the 501st Legion. Star Wars Battlefront II improves upon the original game’s single-player experience with open-ended, mission-based objectives spanning the 501st’s first action at the Battle of Geonosis to its finest hour at the Battle of Hoth. This compelling storyline visits locations taken from all six Star Wars films, many from Episode III, including volcanic Mustafar, the sinkhole planet of Utapau, and the thrilling space battle above Coruscant.
All-new classic movie moments complete the Star Wars Battlefront II experience, as players battle within the interior of the Death Star and visit Princess Leia’s blockade runner, the Tantive IV (as seen at the beginning of Episode IV A New Hope). In addition, at certain key moments, players can wield a lightsaber and use the Force as a Jedi or play as other popular Star Wars heroes.
For the first time ever, Star Wars Battlefront II players can engage in space combat and, during the same battle, board enemy ships to attack from within. Starting on foot inside a capital ship, players can enter the starship of their choice and travel into space to dogfight with the rival faction. From there, they can dock within the enemy’s capital ship and sabotage it from within! Or, they may simply stay inside their own capital ship and defend it from attacks and enemy fire. The choice is theirs.
The stellar online play that marked the original Battlefront returns even bigger and better for Star Wars Battlefront II. Players can locate their buddies and track their stats as they battle alongside more players than ever (up to 24 on PS2, 32 on Xbox, 64 on Windows), and new multiplayer modes such as Capture the Flag and Hunt will ensure even more replayability.
Revamped single-player experience includes smarter AI enemies and allies, plus a greater emphasis on story told through open-ended mission-based objectives.
Campaign mode tells the story of the 501st Legion, designed to honor the real-life worldwide organization of Star Wars fans focused on Imperial-related costuming (www.501st.com).
New space battles allow players to dogfight in X-wings, TIE fighters, Jedi interceptors and several other starships, or fight it out on foot aboard an enemy capital ship.
Special opportunities throughout the game for players to wield a lightsaber and use their favorite Force powers as Jedi like Yoda, Darth Vader, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Maul.
