Star Wars Battlefront 2 Beta Thoughts
As Mods “R” Us are very excited for the release of Star Wars Battlefront, today we were lucky enough to be part of the beta on PlayStation 4 and we thought we would share our early thoughts.
First thing, this game is pure eye candy. Having a blaster battle on the streets of Naboo is really breathtaking. The folks at Dice have just done an amazing job. The first Battlefront was already a good looking game and this one here takes it to a whole new level.
There is far more going on with this beta than you would think, even though there is only a couple of different levels to play as and characters to be. We spent most of the time in the Galactic Assault mode where you pick from one of the four classes and either make a charge or defend. It is a lot of fun and a more refined gameplay experience than the first Battlefront.
The other mode that we spent a lot of time in was Arcade. Specifically, the mode where it let us play as Darth Maul and just kick ass! This was a ton of fun and it kind of felt like a horde mode. You just mow down wave after wave of enemies trying to get more time as you do so you can keep on playing. There is also a starfighter mode where you control ships, but we have not spent enough time with that mode to comment just yet.
One thing that Battlefront 2 has is loot boxes and when you first fire up the game you get three. Overwatch made a big deal of loot boxes and it looks like Star Wars Battlefront 2 is going to be doing the same thing. In all, we had a lot of fun playing this for a couple of hours and we look forward to spending more time with it in the coming days.
