Star Wars: Battlefront 2 had one of the rockiest starts for a major title in years. However, after multiple changes to the progression system, this game has been slowly recovering. During EA’s E3 press conference, developer EA DICE announce that we will be going back to the Clone Wars. Perhaps the most requested DLC for the game, this new expansion will feature multiple planets and new heroes.
One of the worlds announced will be Geonosis, which is where the first conflict between the clones and Separatist Alliance took place. DICE explained that this will be their biggest map and has multiple levels. While no footage was shown, it’s easy to assume that we’ll venture to iconic locations such as the arena, droid factory, and perhaps where the final lightsaber duel took place.
Additionally, we also know that General Grievous, Obi-Wan, Anakin Skywalker, and Count Dooku will be playable heroes. Details are still scarce, but it’s clear that DICE is committed to enhancing and improving the strong multiplayer foundation they built. Whether they will recover from the troubled start is still unknown, but it’s clear they aren’t giving up on this title yet.
The Star Wars Battlefront 2 Clone Wars DLC doesn’t have an official release date, but we do know it’s coming out in a few months.
