The Road Ahead, Part 6 — December 2019 / April 2020


qiv170uhc8nr.jpeg

DECEMBER 2019
Starting in December 2019, the focus will shift to the Sequel Trilogy for a little while. After a calendar year focusing on the Clone Wars/Prequel content (and rightfully so), December of 2019 will feature all new content based on Epispde IX. I don't think that's a stretch or a crazy prediction.

GALACTIC ASSAULT / CONQUEST
o5g32svj6vz0.jpeg
Undoubtedly, there will be an epic, major ground battle from Episode IX represented in BF2.


STARFIGHTER ASSAULT

Likewise, there will also likely be a major space battle from Episode IX represented in BF2.

HEROES

Difficult to say, but if there are any new heroes/Villains introduced in IX, they'll be represented in BF2 in this December 2019 update. This is not a spoiler, as it has been announced by Lucasfilm that Keri Russell will be in Episode 9. If I had to guess, I'd say Keri Russell's new character is a safe bet to be added. Female Hero/Villain. Makes sense. Don't know what side she's on, however, but seeing as she's a big-name actress with ties to JJ Abrams, I think we can assume she'll have a big role—one way or another.

HERO APPEARANCES

REY, FINN, and LANDO

EPISODE IX Epic skins for Finn, Rey, as well as Lando are very likely. (Lando's skin would NOT be Legendary since he already has BillyDee Williams current 2018 voice in-game.)

JANUARY 2020 - APRIL 2020

The Sequel trilogy is lacking in content options simply because it's so new and Battelfront has already explored most of the locations in the Sequel Trilogy. It doesn't have the rich history of years' worth of canon material to pull from yet. But that doesn't mean there isn't enough to focus on. Here what I think will happen for the Sequel Trilogy between January-April of 2020.


STARFIGHTER ASSAULT
0noawbaxxth1.jpeg
STARKILLER BASE
Epic Space battle from the Force Awakens. Taking down Starkiller was a major victory for the Resistance. Starfighters are a major part of the GA map on Starkiller Base and an atmosphere battle to take down the base while the ground battle rages below would be perfect.

ASSAULT ON TAKODANA
im7dw4e6y0ok.jpeg

The campaign paves the way here... Fighting above the lake and castle, resistance ships try to stave off the First Order Assault.


GALACTIC ASSAULT / CONQUEST

CANTO BIGHT
The only other major location from The Last Jedi not yet seen in BF2 (Ach-To not withstanding) Canto Bight offers for some visually unique gameplay for a Galactic Assault/Comquest Battlefront.

EXTRACTION / STRIKE

CANTO BIGHT
Canto Bight would again feature in this mode (escorting the cargo through the streets of the city, then ultimately to the beach for extraction).

HEROES
There are a few heroes and villians from the Sequel Trilogy who should make their debuts. All the below candidates would arguably have larger, expanded roles, or at least feature in the final chapter. Once they've been added, the cast of characters from the Sequel Trilogy will be well represented.

POE DAMERON

MAZ KANATA
Maz comes with her blaster and JetPack from The Last Jedi, and I'd imagine also a "slicing" ability. She wasn't good enough to be the "master code breaker" but she's a skilled slicer.

REINFORCEMENTS

CANTO BIGHT POLICE

One obvious reinforcement option is the Canto bight Police force. It would be a nice addition and certainly a map/era specific addition.


HERO APPEARANCES
t7oetzcniuii.png

There are several new EPIC and LEGENDARY skins for heroes that I think we should all be hoping for and they all center around HAN, LUKE and LEIA...

CAPTAIN PHASMA

After seeing how well the Grevious Legendary "Shattered" skin turned out, you can bet we'll be seeing a battle damaged "Shattered" Phasma.


Following this "season" of Sequel Trilogy we head into MAY 2020. May is of course the anniversary of where it all began. And I think we'll be headed back to the Original Trilogy...

More on that next...

    It’s a great post

    Doesn’t change the title is misleading
  • all depression aside why didn't you include rose tico? she is essential
  • sad that well likley only see a fraction of this. it's more depressing than anything because it shows all what is possible but what we wont get. I expect the bare minimum. but its nice to think about sometimes what the possibilities actually are. we all can have dreams.
  • UHM BIG NO. No I don’t want **** characters added. In my view force awakens- last Jedi did not exist, because Disney themselves admitted it was garbage and wanted to remove the series from cannon.


    Like stated in another forum JJ Abrams can burn in hell that George Lucas put him in. If anything add EA heroes from the legends trilogy.
  • Awesome post again OP... I think Poe and Snoke would be great hero additions.

    And FN-2199 B)

    The skins for Old Luke, Han and Leia is also something I’ve seen requested here and other places, quite a bit. Promotes the new movies as well, not sure why we have got any yet. Would love to have the Luke projection on Crait skin.

    More on that next...

    Im all in on ST content. Not so much for the CW stuff. Way to much of it as is.
  • all depression aside why didn't you include rose tico? she is essential

    You know, I thought about it. I suppose it's possible that Rose is the "other" Hero added with Keri Russell (if she turns out to be a villain). Although, I don't think it's necessary to add heroes in a 1 Hero/ 1Villain format. There's more than enough heroes on both sides to "counter" the abilities of another. I just didn't see Rose as a hero to be added.

    And for those wondering, this is ALL speculation. This is the (now) 6th post in this series that I've done. I've never claimed to know anything. Just reading the tea leaves and putting some things together. Things that I think make sense. Some is based on rumor, or hints the Devs have given... I hope I'm right and we get it all. I also hope I'm wrong and the timetable is sped up so that get it all sooner.
  • NO no no no no no no i did not just recommend rose taco of all people no that was pure kidding please no please no please no please no no no no no...

    I don't know, Steve. I mean, I certainly get where you're coming from. Content to this point has been disappointingly light, but I think Geonosis is the start of something. Hearing the Devs tease 2019 and looking back on content since October, I'm seeing a pattern emerge. I believe the content will ramp up and be delivered at a much more consistent and plentiful pace.

    That's why, although I'm "prediciting" a lot of content, I am spreading it out over several months.

    For example, in this season I'm spanning 5 months.
    5 months=
    2 GA/Conquest maps
    6 Heroes (new) if I count Rose
    2 new Starfighter Assault maps (based on existing campaign/multiplayer maps)
    ...and okay, a healthy amount of skins

    But I really think DICE will come through. If the worst I've accomplished here is giving some folks hope for the future, and showing the Devs an outline of what we want then I'm happy.

    I'd be curious to look at all these and see where we actually stand when all is said and done.

    Thanks, Piscettios.
    I think you may have an inkling as to what's next, as I've finally gotten there. I'd like to put these all together once I'm done in a more cohesive, smaller, (and reader friendly) way. I've always been optimistic when it comes to this game, and I really hope that we won't be let down.

    I don't think we can base what the future holds on what has come before. Many factors slowed the pace and set the team back. That's all over now. I want to finish before Ben puts out the December roadmap.
  • You have got to be kidding man, the Disney trilogy is complete trash. I’m not interested in a thing from that content. What a joke. I want prequils, clone wars content only from here on out.
  • I'd love to see more ST content, even though I know I'm in the minority when I say that I have enjoyed the new movies.
  • I'd love to see more ST content, even though I know I'm in the minority when I say that I have enjoyed the new movies.
    The ST movies sell extremely well both box office and home media in fact home media wise they dominated the market. They did fail in China sadly due to how SW is constructed its a cultural thing. Solo missed the mark due to premise, poor advertising and ultra competitive season. The boycotts are a joke and are organised by the same sort of person who boycotted RoTS and RoTJ for being «leftist propaganda» the PT was hated, TCW was met with vile and nasty reactions yet are both loved now (as they should) the "backlash" is small and just the same as the PT hate, if only smaller. Every one will get content from all eras, PT, OT and ST. And as the canon grows more eras and themes will explored.
