Star Wars Battlefront 2, the new entry in the series developed by DICE, is soon going to receive some major changes related to the progression system, but that is not the only thing the team has been working on.
A few hours ago, the team revealed some additional information about what is to come in Star Wars Battlefront 2. While Carrer and progression is the first major feature the team is trying to fix, DICE is also looking to add more graphics options as well as new flying maps, returning maps from the previous game, a FOV slider on consoles and a new offline mode that will allow players to enjoy big battles. You can find a summary of what has been recently revealed below, courtesy of Reddit user Martiger434.
