Star Wars: Battlefront 2 developers answered some of the questions the fans had about the game. We got information regarding the multiplayer servers, Star Card system, reload system and more.

Star Wars: Battlefront 2 was officially announced last week, and now the details on the game's multiplayer and reloading system are pouring in. Twitter once again proved its status as the primary source of information in between the official status reports and announcements while a game is in development. Today we have a couple of details confirmed by the associate design director Dennis Brännvall and game designer Christian Johannesen.

Lets see, it has been confirmed that Battlefront 2 will use dedicated servers for multiplayer, much like its 2015 predecessor. 

 

Next up we know that the Star Card system will not offer the same type of "freedom" as its predecessor, but, as always "you can definitely customise your trooper class quite drastically to suit your playstyle".

And when asked whether there will be a cooldown or a reloading system on the weapons, Dennis answered like a man with two penises does, when his tailor asks him if he dresses right or left: Yes.

 

Game designer Christian Johannesen tweeted that the folks who buy the Standard edition of the game will be able to unlock the Deluxe features through gameplay. What are those Deluxe features, you ask? Well, the Deluxe version includes:

  • Access to play Star Wars Battlefront II on November 14--a 3-day head start
  • Upgraded versions of all 4 trooper classes (Officer, Assault, Heavy, and Specialist)
  • Four epic ability upgrades—one for each trooper class
  • Instant weapon unlocks and weapon modifications for each trooper class
  • Exclusive Kylo Ren- and Rey-themed looks, inspired by Star Wars : The Last Jedi
  • Epic ability modifiers for Kylo Ren and Rey 
  • An epic ability modifier for the Millennium Falcon

 

This is the pre-order list and it will cost you some £62. If you opt for the Standard version (£45), you'll receive the last three features from the list.

Galactic Conquest mode is another thing people are hoping will make an appearance in the new game, but the powers that be neither confirmed nor denied that. 

Finally, and this is not a 100 percent confirmed, you'll be able to play as a Battle Droid. This was tweeted by a random person but, Dennis did retweet it so we're chalking it up as a definite maybe. The tweet: 

"It would not be the Prequels and the Clone Wars, without being able to play as the B1 Battle Droid. Roger Roger."

Battlefront II is set to release on November 17 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
