Notes

  • Partner system replaced with full squad system for more players
  • Vehicle/Hero power-ups system replaced with new system that allows you to spend battle points earned during the match to spawn as them.
  • Phase-based massive 20v20 mode.  One example shown was Assault on Theed where you start off outside trying to break into a Jedi Temple.  The first phase will have a lot of focus on making use of vehicles, once inside it switches to infantry.
  • Full offline story mode reconfirmed following the female commander of the Inferno Squad in an original untold Star Wars story.
  • Bridges gap between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens

  • First season The Last Jedi themed and will be available during holiday 2017.
  • Pre-order for beta access and Yoda’s light saber mastery star card.
  • Star Card system overhauled to include multiple different rarities.  These are earned through play in some way, possibly through packs bought with in-game currency.  We expect these to be purchasable with real money as well to support the game’s free DLC model.
