The game will return to the roots of the classic Battlefront games, using a class based system for infantry troopers with each class having a shared progression system, but with equipment differing depending on faction.
The classes are Officer, Assault, Heavy, and Specialist.
More vehicles will be included for all factions, including Tauntauns. Space battles will also be making a return with new starships. Vehicles will also be apart of a new customization and progression system.
Playable hero and villain characters from the films will be expanded upon, with players able to customize skills to their liking. Creative Director Bernd Diemer stated that he wanted the heroes to have more depth rather than feeling like a momentary power up.
Star Wars Battlefront 2 early access is officially confirmed by EA. Players will be able to access the game early.
Players will be able to access Battlefront 2 a few days early through not only EA Access and EA Origin Access but pre ordering the game will also get you in early.

Links to the game on various social media and steam:
Pretty excited for the release of the new game. Sounds like the rest of the division is eager for it too. Of course, we're all hoping for some tweaks over the current SWBF, but in the end I'm just looking forward to some new blood, and new maps.
I know for certain that the current group of folks in SWBF are super stoked and eager for new...as I'm sure many TAW members are. Looking forward to Spin-Up of this one. Thanks MaximusSC!
I am pretty stoked about the game myself. I was not expecting much from it, but what I have seen. It has my interest! However, I am still being cautious because of the first one.
12 thumbs up!
