Bringing back an old style of news compilation that I did with DICE's first Battlefront game (Even got the same poll recreated for this one)

Of course, the thread content will expand as more news show up so I would hold off on the poll unless you really feel strongly enough to think so before reading everything.

Some information here regarding the versions presented for Star Wars Battlefront 2 EA. Click to expand to read the details as it hints as to how this game will be set up and what will be in it as well. First off, we can see that there's going to be some unlockable weaponry here (Obviously) seen from across the Star Wars films with one of these being notable from Rebels. Some links here to save you guys the trouble in searching.

Season Pass Ditched

The differences in the two versions are mostly early unlocks and cosmetics most likely because of a decision made to ditch the season pass trend EA and DICE love to do so much and divide the communities in all their games with such a system. We have yet to hear on how they will actually incorporate any future DLC so caution is advised to avoid over-exuberance to such good news.

"We decided on that, and it's one of those difficult decisions because it has so many implications all around," Diemer said. "When we looked at the way Battlefront had evolved over its lifetime, with the DLC and everything, we decided, 'You know what? For this type of game, season passes are not the best thing. We need to [take it apart] and come up with something better."

"We don't want to segment our community," he added, saying that, while he can't dive into the specifics, the team has "something different in mind that will allow you to play longer, be [more] invested in the game without having a fragmented community."

EA reached out afterwards, saying: "While we're not ready to confirm any live service plans just yet, what we can say is this we heard the feedback from our Battlefront community loud and clear. We know they want more depth, more progression, and more content. So we're focused on delivering that in every dimension of Star Wars Battlefront II. We'll have more to share about our plans soon.

I'm getting the hint that all those droid mentions, of the CIS being playable, were directed for me lol. It's the only news that really matters :droid

Slight hiatus as of this post's week due to college stuff which may or may not be an eight page paper to type.

Feel free to input anything yet to be presented in the comments below, and I will review over everything for their additions into the original post.

Cheers

I hope the weapons are restricted to specific factions rather than let anyone run around with any weapon. I don't want my battle droids running around with DC-15 blasters. That would look stupid. It not like every major faction doesn't have their own counterpart weapon anyway.

Like for the basic blaster rifle: E-5 (CIS), DC-15 (Republic), E-11 (Empire), A280 (Rebels), F-11D  (First Order),  EL-16HFE (Resistance)

pistols: SE-14 (CIS), DC-17 (Republic), scout blaster (Empire), DL-44 (Rebels), SE-44 C pistol (First Order)

They can do this with rocket launchers, sniper rifles, blast cannons and so on and so forth. The older Battlefronts created a lot of these weapons already. It would be a shame not to use them.

Thank you, @RogueRebel

I'll be adding those in a post update sometime soon.

For those who don't know yet, I'm making this "What We Know" as one of the source providers for my eight page paper going over the development of the Battlefront franchise by DICE. Any and all provided sourcing on decisions made for the development of Battlefront 2 EA would help a lot in trying to form a picture of it.
