Star Wars Battlefront 2 gameplay unveiled, free DLC announced

'Star Wars Battlefront II': First Look At Theed Revealed; Gameplay Trailer Saturday

2017's Electronic Entertainment Expo is finally upon us, and we're kicking off the round of conferences with a pre-E3 press event from EA Play!

In fact, Payback evokes memories of the Burnout franchise (with a hint of Stuntman), as you ram into enemy vehicles and send them crashing. Often these microtransactions are focused on extra aesthetic options of in-game characters, but in some cases can include extra abilities or characters. Battlefront II's campaign will fill a narrative hole in the Star Wars film franchise between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens, and the game as a whole boasts three times as much content as the first Battlefront.

Star Wars: Battlefront 2 was arguably the biggest draw for many this year, and EA's conference didn't disappoint. This included an on-stage presentation and featurette about the group of skilled players who helped provide input to developers about the type of changes needed to make Battlefront II's multiplayer a success.

Well, the bloke behind that game, Josef Fares, has founded a new studio called Hazelight and looks set to bring another co-op experience to gamers.

Microtransactions can be highly profitable, so EA is not likely to worry about a loss of revenue by switching to this business model and giving expansions for the game away for free. Games like Dragon Age: Inquisition and Star Wars: Battlefront are a lot of fun so if you aren't an EA Access subscriber and want to try out the service, now's your chance!

New smart speaker expected as Apple kicks off conference
That device was just a multi-touch feature phone with a few Apple utilities until it became everything with the App Store launch. Against other smart home assistants, the HomePod's targets are different from ostensible competitors like the Amazon Echo .

More details about the character were also revealed and it turns out that players will be playing as 3 different characters and each one will have their own unique playstyle.

Following the reveal of Madden, EA detailed the future of Battlefield 1 in 'In the Name of the Tsar.' This DLC pack will open up the Eastern Front, introducing new units and maps to revitalize multiplayer gameplay.

The game was first teased past year in a short video but it's worth noting that the publisher never confirmed we'd be seeing it.

EA confirmed that night maps will be coming to the smash hit video game. If it is executed effectively for Battlefront 2, it could give the game some serious longevity.

The game will arrive on PS4, Xbox One, and PC on November 17, 2017.
