Star Wars Battlefront II Single-Player Campaign To Last Around 5-7 Hours
The Star Wars Battlefront II single-player campaign will take around 5-7 hours to complete, according to EA Motive’s studio producer, David Robillard.
That’s what the producer told Australian website Press Start. “…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”, Robillard told Press Start reporter Damian Filippone.
Unlike EA’s 2015 Battlefront reboot, its sequel will feature a full-fledged campaign mode set in the 30 years between the destruction of Death Star II and through the rise of the First Order. The story will focus on Iden Versio, the leader of Inferno Squad, an elite special forces unit of the Galactic Empire.
“EA has assembled an incredible set of developers to create a Star Wars gaming experience unlike anything fans have ever experienced,” said Douglas Reilly, Senior Director, Digital & Franchise Management back in April of this year. “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.”
“We wanted to create a campaign that told a story we haven’t seen before in Star Wars”, says Mark Thompson, Game Director at Motive Studios. “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.”
