Star Wars Battlefront II is free, and you should download it



Epic Games is offering Star Wars Battlefront II for one week. Launched in 2017, the shooter combines a globally successful single-player campaign and hearty online modes.



The Epic Games Store continues to spoil gamers. Until January 21, it is possible to grab Star Wars Battlefront II for free, a multiplayer-oriented shooter game launched by Electronic Arts in 2017. This is the Celebration Edition, which offers, in addition to the content, a whole range of packed with customization items (including those inspired by the Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker movie).

Star Wars Battlefront II is first of all this game that demonized lootboxes (random rewards that can influence gameplay) and microtransactions (purchases that can be made in the game), due to some abuse on the part of Electronic Arts. “Seriously? Did I pay $ 80 to have Darth Vader unlocked? One of the first players, for example. Under fire from critics, the multinational quickly rectified the situation and today these issues are a thing of the past for Star Wars Battlefront II. Especially since the title has received a number of beneficial updates since 2017.

A well-made solo adventure


In the tradition of a Call of Duty, Star Wars Battlefront II incorporates a (real) single player campaign and several competitive online modes. A Star Wars product born under the agreement between Electronic Arts and Lucasfilm, the experience is intended to be as authentic as possible. Fans will be delighted to find the heroes, ships, sound effects or even emblematic environments of the saga. As a bonus, Star Wars Battlefront II is visually very successful thanks to the Frostbite Engine from the DICE studio. The handling is accessible and everyone can enjoy killing stormtroopers controlled by artificial intelligence ... or another player.

The story mode of Star Wars Battlefront II is successful in the sense that it focuses on an unprecedented event. It follows the heroine Iden Versio, who leads the elite Inferno squad, tasked with fulfilling perilous missions on behalf of the Empire. Witnessing the destruction of the second Death Star from Endor, she will gradually question her place in the galaxy in the face of the faltering Empire. We are indeed in a pure Star Wars story, with the same qualities and the same faults. There are key themes (links with the father), articulated around a very strong female character. For the record, Janina Gavankar, actress seen in True Blood who plays Iden Versio, was treated to an amazing cameo in The Mandalorian series. She did not appear as the heroine, but donned the costume of a Mon Calamari - she revealed in IGN columns on November 14, 2020.

Classic in its approach and the messages it conveys, the Star Wars Battlefront II solo at least has the merit of avoiding the (well) disguised tutorial syndrome. Too often, multiplayer oriented shooter games tend to hide unwanted learning phases in their campaign. Iden Versio's tale is no different, but we have seen worse in the genre (the latest Battlefields, also developed by DICE).

In multiplayer, Star Wars Battlefront II offers a number of ways to have fun: from short games to more epic battles, with objectives that change as the match unfolds. There are even space battles, for those who don't want to invest in Star Wars Squadrons. Finally, we will note the opportunity to embody figures from the Stars Wars universe: from Darth Vader to Kylo Ren, including Yoda, General Grievous, Boba Fett, Chewbacca or even BB-8. You will understand, there is a good dose of fan service that animates Star Wars Battlefront II.
