The latest gameplay trailer by Electronic Arts shows us some of the heroes that will be available in Battlefront 2. In the trailer below you witness some of the new hero additions along with some from the first Battlefront game. Some of the heroes include Darth Maul, Boba Fett, Kylo Ren, Luke Skywalker, Yoda, Rey, and Chewbacca.
Darth Maul is one of the new additions to the next game, and he should turn out to be one of the favorites. His unique double-bladed Sith lightsaber and unique look should draw many players towards him. Maul comes from the species known as Zabraks or Dathomirians, which accounts for the horns on his head. While most of the Dathomirians were eradicated during the clone wars, Maul will always be the one we remember.
Boba Fett is probably one of the most well-known characters not only in the game but in the Star Wars story. While he was a hero in Battlefront 1, this popular bounty hunter will again be part of the next game. He is such a favorite that there is even a website that is just dedicated to him, it’s a Boba Fett fan club. Players love his jetpack and the ever so powerful flamethrower at his disposal.
Another new hero that will surely be a favorite amongst players will be Kylo Ren. This character hit the big screen recently when he appeared in The Force Awakens, and fans flocked to his cool lightsaber, costume, and unique voice. Kylo is the son of Han Solo and Leia Organa who is drawn to the dark side by Supreme Leader Snoke after being trained by his uncle, Luke Skywalker. He is also rumored to be one of the characters that you can play as in the single player mode, alongside Luke Skywalker.
How could you have a Star Wars game without Luke Skywalker? The easy answer is, you can’t! So Luke will be in the next game as well. Could they change his hero abilities? One reason why they could change his abilities is to simply give him a refreshing feel over the first game. While he does appear in the gameplay trailer, it’s rather short. He appears running behind the scene with Boba Fett before he attacks some stormtroopers.
Chewbacca is yet another character that is shown briefly in the gameplay trailer who was part of the first Battlefront game. He is the lovable furry giant that nobody can understand but who can really pack a punch with his strength. Chewie, which is what most of us call him, is the sidekick to Han Solo. He has a powerful crossbow that he wields when he needs it, or simply uses his brute strength.
Rey will also be joining us in next game as a Jedi. She was a scavenger in the movie on the planet of Jakku, who ends up helping Finn as she learns the mysterious power of The Force. She is one of the characters pictured in the main promo image for Battlefront 2 along with Darth Maul and Iden Versio. In the gameplay trailer, she is battling Kylo Ren.
Last but not least is the very cool addition of Yoda. Yoda is a Jedi Master who is responsible for training Luke Skywalker in Star Wars that ultimately turns the war. While being very small, Yoda is also very nimble and very powerful. This will certainly be a character in Battlefront 2 that people will be lining up to play as. In the gameplay trailer below he is seen bringing out his green lightsaber to battle Darth Maul.
