Although Star Wars: Battlefront was received well among gamers, the lack of campaign was a bummer for gamers who are used to single player campaigns. Fortunately, the upcoming Star Wars: Battlefront II will feature a single player campaign. And now, during a recent interview, EA Motive’s studio producer David Robillard revealed that the upcoming game will feature a 5-7 hours campaign.
During the recent interview with Australian website Press Start he also revealed that the game’s full-fledge campaign will be set in the 30 years between the destruction of Death Star II and through the rise of the First Order. During the interview he said, “We thought that around 5-7, maybe 8 hours is probably a good amount of time…we wanted to stay very driven towards the Star Wars fantasy that the players are going to experience and not have it be drawn out.”
Back in April, Douglas Reilly, Senior Director, Digital & Franchise Management said, “EA has assembled an incredible set of developers to create a Star Wars gaming experience unlike anything fans have ever experienced. Star Wars Battlefront II will offer everything players loved about the last instalment, and adds new modes that we know the fans want, including an entirely new story developed in partnership with Lucasfilm.”
During the event, Mark Thompson, Game Director at Motive Studios added, “We wanted to create a campaign that told a story we haven’t seen before in Star Wars. It was important for us to tell a new authentic story, one that gives players a brand-new perspective. By putting players in the boots of an elite member of the Imperial forces, we can show them what the battle was like from the other side.”
However, you will need to wait few more days as Star Wars: Battlefront II is set for a release on November 17 for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
