Today at EA’s E3 Press Conference, EA dropped some massive details about the upcoming Star Wars Battlefront 2.

The game’s multiplayer will include a thing called Battle points which acts as an in-battle currency to buy things like weapons and vehicles. You will start each match with 0 Battle points and they will accrue as you continue to play any given match by doing various actions.
EA also took the time to announce that Battlefront II multiplayer will feature 20 vs 20 matches. To showcase this, they showed 30 minutes of multiplayer map Theed, which is new to BFII. You may know Theed from Episode I where it appeared as Naboo’s capital city. While on Theed, you’ll be able to pilot the various starships seen in Episode I’s battle of Naboo.
BFII’s multiplayer will include multiple Force Awakens Characters such as Rey, Kylo Ren, Finn, and Captain Phasma.
Finn and Captain Phasma were announced to be available later as DLC, but luckily EA also announced that all post-launch content will be available via free updates to Battlefront II. The pair will be included in Decembers DLC drop which will come with the map Crait as well. Crait is the planet seen you may have seen in the trailer for The Last Jedi and I’m sure it will be a delight to play on.
