EA DICE has announced that the planet Scarif is going to be added to Star Wars Battlefront 2 as part of the game’s forthcoming Age of Rebellion update. For those out of the loop, Scarif was a popular location seen in the original Star Wars Battlefront, so fans should be pleased to hear it’s making a comeback.
Scarif Confirmed For Star Wars Battlefront 2
Writing in a post on Reddit, DICE revealed that the update revolves around the original Star Wars trilogy in terms of content. It’s due to drop later this month.
“This includes bringing specific planets to both Co-Op and, later on, Supremacy,” said the company.
We know that many of you have been requesting this and we’re incredibly excited at the prospect of playing as Luke, Leia, Darth Vader and more, through both Co-Op and Supremacy.
With the arrival of the Original Trilogy we will make a name change: Capital Supremacy will simply be known as Supremacy. We’re renaming this game mode to encompass all eras as the upcoming Original Trilogy variant will be fought exclusively on the ground.
During development, we looked at the experiences that both Death Star II and Scarif would offer, deciding that the Age of Rebellion would be focused on ground-based combat, which is a better fit for some of the more iconic locations we have available. It’s hard to imagine leaving the Death Star to go to a capital ship, let alone having to deal with the shield that surrounds Scarif.
But, don’t worry – it’s still the same great Supremacy experience, just focused on ground-based gameplay.
Star Wars Battlefront 2 was released for PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One in November 2017. Despite a rocky start – the game received much criticism over its use of microtransactions – EA has managed to turn things around and has continued supported the sci-fi shooter ever since with robust post-launch content.
