Star Wars Battlefront 2 Will Be A Linear Story, But It Will Follow Different Perspectives

Not trying to be something it is not.

Posted By | On 21st, Apr. 2017

Star Wars: Battlefront 2 may be promising a story based campaign, but it will still stay true to the series’s, and Star Wars’s as a whole, strengths. Don’t expect it to be non linear, giving you full agency or anything- Battlefront 2 will be a largely linear experience, mostly following the story of its protagonist, though it will periodically change perspectives.

“Without getting into too much detail that I will get in trouble for… We take all of our cues from how to tell a Star Wars story working with Lucasfilm story group, analyzing the movies, breaking down the beats and flow of Star Wars storytelling,” said DICE’s Mark Thompson in an interview with Eurogamer. “So yeah, it is a continuous story with a beginning, middle and end and you follow Iden’s journey for 30 years from the end of Jedi up to the Force Awakens at Starkiller base. It isn’t a discrete set of missions or separate War Stories like Battlefield 1, you do follow Iden through this journey whilst from time to time, switching sides and playing from the perspective of one of the iconic heroes because again that’s just part of Battlefront‘s DNA. Sometimes you’re a Trooper, sometimes you’re a pilot and sometimes you’re Luke Skywalker with a lightsaber.”

So there you have it, folks- Battlefront 2 will stick to the series’ strengths, and not try to become something it is not. I actually think other games could stand to learn from that.
