There’s a Star Wars Battlefront II closed alpha going on right now and it seems online sleuths have discovered a few interesting tidbits from the code about the full game. They include a few teasers on the roster of playable Star Wars Battlefront II heroes for the game’s multiplayer.
The info comes from brilliantly named Reddit user uninspired_zebra who discovered references to new and returning hero characters, which are as follows:
- Boba Fett
- Han Solo
- Princess Leia
- Luke Skywalker
- Darth Vader
- Emperor Palpatine
- General Grievous
- Iden Versio
- Kylo Ren
- Lando Calrissian
- Darth Maul
- Captain Phasma
EA Games had already confirmed Darth Maul, Yoda, Rey, Kylo Ren were playable characters, with Iden Versio being the brand new female protagonist for the Battlefront 2 single-player. It’s nice to see her becoming a part of the game’s multiplayer too.
Luke, Leia, Han, Chewie, Darth Vader, Boba Fett, the Emperor, and Lando were all featured in 2015’s Star Wars Battlefront and seem to be returning in the sequel.
Therefore, the new faces you should expect to see as Star Wars Battlefront II heroes are General Grievous, Phasma and Bossk.
General Grievous seems to have excited fans, but we’re scratching our heads as to why Bossk, a Transdoshan bounty hunter who appears in a single scene in the original Star Wars trilogy would be wheeled out for Star Wars Battlefront II. We’d be happier to see Obi-Wan Kenobi and Mace Windu in the game before Bossk.
Star Wars Battlefront II is out on November 17, so we’ve still got a while to find out all the new features and heroes before it arrives. There is going to be a beta for the game for those who pre-order so no doubt some more gossip will come straight out of that.
You’ll be able to play Battlefront II on PS4, Xbox One and PC when it arrives in November.
