Yeah, I'm playing at launch too. I've grown to enjoy what's there throughout the week, and I hope they make the necessary improvements.


Also, I pre-ordered through PSN, so it's not like I can rescind that anyway.

Good boy.

Btw, have they confirmed how many maps will be for all modes? I know there will be 11 for Galactic Assault. But I can't find any info about the other modes.

I just really hope that Strike will have different modes on different maps. For example: Droid run type mode on Death Star, Dropzone type mode on Hoth etc.
The objective on Theed isn't interesting enough to play across all small maps imo.

Since it seems like Galactic Assault will be different on most locations I also hope they will do the same with Strike, as you're saying. The mode on Takodana feels like the last stage in Infiltration from Rogue One-DLC.

Do you mean on Takodana?

Here is a description for all GA-maps:

Naboo - A three stage assault on the capital of Naboo. Squads of droids protect a colossal MTT as it lumbers its way toward the royal palace.
Starkiller base - As the fighter attack rages above Starkiller Base, a cadre of Resistance warriors make a daring raid to rescue prisoners trapped inside the First Order facility.
Kamino - The waves of Kamino crash beneath the slender platforms of the cloning facility as armies of battle droids descend on the artificial island.
Takodana - On Takodana, the First Order moves against Maz Kanata's castle. Resistance forces have taken up a defensive position inside.
Jakku - First Order forces have trapped a group of Resistance fighters within the derelict hull of a crashed Star Destroyer in the desert of Jakku.
Yavin IV - Deep within the Great Temple on Yavin 4 is a secret of key importance to the survival of the Rebellion. But Imperial ground forces have arrived!
Death Star II - As the Battle of Endor rages all around it, an Alliance corvette crashes straight into the Death Star. The surviving Rebels must fight their way out!
Endor - Rebel forces steal an AT-AT walker and use it to demolish an Imperial base.
Hoth - Plodding AT-AT walkers advance toward the Rebel position under air cover as Rebel defenders and their screen of T-47s try to hold the position.
Kashyyyk - As the droid army storms up a beach, Wookiee Warriors and Clone troopers dig in to defend a grounded cruiser.
Tatooine - Imperial stormtroopers rush from shuttles into the crowded streets of Mos Eisley.

Heh, I was just watching the Kashyyk scene again in ROTS, and wouldn't you know it, there was a grounded cruiser.


Never really noticed that before.

Star Wars Battlefront II |OT| Heís holding a thermal detonator with a 0.15% buff!
Star Wars Battlefront II |OT| I don't like loot crates. They're coarse and rough and irritating and they get everywhere.

Tbh though I think the loot crate thing is blown out of proportion.

Dunno if it's been brought up already, but it turns out they did get back Daisy Ridley for VO work this time. Here's the soundalike from the Alpha for comparison.


Wonder which else of the new cast they'll get back (Boyega's a given).


EDIT: Meanwhile, Luke just sounds waaaay off from Hamill now lol. Sometimes I feel like they should just get the dude from Robot Chicken.

Yeah, kinda neat that it's the little droid in the back that is doing the shield also.

Looks like they're putting up new heroes a few days between now. Will update here when there's some heroes we haven't seen yet.

I wonder if that stun move can be interrupted by shooting the droid?

Okay I've thought pretty much all of the loot crate OT title suggestions have been pretty terrible, but that one is actually amazing and I could get behind that.

This is the only halfway decent one on the list, the rest are terrible (no offense to their creators). Wish I was feeling clever right now.

1, 2, and 4 are good; I'd pick 4 if reviews are negative and 1 if they are positive.

Straight up movie quotes that I think go great with the return of a good Battlefront game:

Oh, my dear friend. How I've missed you.
Chewie, we're home.
