    I'd like to think some significant offline content will arrive with Season 2 but I'm resigned to the idea that Arcade will probably only get minimal improvements.

    Me too. We'll probs just see which ever blast map that gets added from the Solo DLC. That will be fun for a day or two but then it will get boring again. From the dev's comments I'd say that the two game modes we desire are still a couple of months away.

    Which comments?

    We are getting a small arcade map that's it folks.

    Dennis stated Feb 6th they were working on a large mode for Arcade. This is after January's announcement about the progression update which means some devs may have continued to work on it while the progression update was being done. I would not be surprised if we are playing the large mode this month or next. I bet we will hear about it this month.

    There is no way they would have it done by now or the end of the month. Look how long it took them to add in the 5 blast maps. With skins making new map for season 2 the progression update and everything else and they just started to look into starfighter assault at the end of last month we won't hear of anything for at lease 2 months.

    They have been working on the large mode for about three months. I expect the large mode before SFA.

    Just whenever they talked about the modes they didn’t make it seem like they were imminent.

    Also found this:



    Large Arcade modes still possible with this Season.

    I'd put my money on Starfighter Assault and any new Blast maps coming to Arcade.

    The thing is though that it doesn't make sense that way with what he tweeted.

    If we were just getting the Blast maps than he wouldn't be saying that he already said too much.

    I have a feeling its something bigger.

    This is just a small theory but could be huge if true!

    They say that there is something for Battlefront II tomorrow on Star Wars Day but its not for Season 2.

    What if tomorrow is when we get the Large Modes for Arcade and the Arcade content for Season 2 are the new maps coming with it?

    Would fit with Ben's "Already said too much." tweet as well.

    Huge longshot but would be AWESOME if it happened!

    Then it's party time!! You are right that would be AWESOME! Unfortunately, you are also right about it being a longshot. I think the large mode might be part of season 2; however, tomorrow I expect a credit/experience boost.

    That is true, the line about saying too much is giving me hope. However I’d still like to warn against to much optimism at the moment as we’ve been disappointed before. Basically it’s not been confirmed that we are getting something big added to Arcade but it’s not been confirmed that we are not either.

    After Ben's tweet I'm much more confident than I was yesterday regarding offline content. His "I've already said too much" comment feels like a heavy hint. Btw! Has anyone noticed that Double XP is also available in arcade? May the fourth has turned out to be a good day imo!
  • I wonder what offline content will be? Large bot blast or straighten assault? Or both?

    Could range from a new small blast map to a large vehicle based mode. Criterion have been extremely quiet in the last few months which could be an indicator that they have been working hard to add Starfighter assault to offline.

    Confirmation by F8RGE that it might be more than just the new maps and heroes.

    My guess is it could be Starfighter Assault or possibly but less likely the Large Ground Mode on the Large maps with Vehicles (AI vehicles as well)

    Wow ok I am now officially excited! Reason being I don’t think he’d hint at arcade content if all we were getting was a blast map. He knows we’d be angry if that’s all we got after him making such a comment. My hope is that it’s one of the two large scale modes.
  • F8rge's reddit response made my day. I am thinking a new mode. Either mode would be fine; however, I'd prefer the ground mode with hero AI.

  • Wasn't it said a few months ago that we should look to the seasons for new Arcade content. Makes me pretty excited when factoring what Ben has teased lately.

    I think out of the two modes we are more likely to see SA first. Frankly I want the large ground mode to be available in multiplayer too, and if it’s extraction I’d be disappointed. I want it to be in multiplayer for two reasons. 1: sometimes it’s fun to have that competive intense online experience. 2. If it was a new mode solely for arcade then I’d be worried that they didn’t think it good enough for multiplayer which wouldn’t be a good sign.

    Also am I right in thinking that everybody here wants the large mode for arcade to basically be Conquest. With tickets, free flowing game play and command posts of sorts. Perfect mix of getting kills and doing the objective all whilst on a big map where all parts are accessible during the game.

    I don't have a preference on which mode, I just want a large mode with heroes, vehicles, and troopers, the AI able to use ALL units, and some kind of objective.

    Yeah, I don't care about the type of large offline mode as long as it includes 40 players, all the large maps and vehicles. Really hope we will get a large mode & SA soon. And of course hopefully they will continue to add the new blast maps to arcade too (like they did with Crait & Bespin).

    Tickets are just the kill count. I.e in team battle where it’s 100vs100 the tickets are the 100 when the tickets reach 0 it’s game over
  • KlownShueS wrote: »

    It seems that they have been working on the large mode for longer, but Starfighter Assault would be easier because the online already has AI. I hope it’s a large mode personally, because you can fly starfighters on the ground.
    I finally rest. And watch the sun set on an offline universe.

    Until they announce what offline content is being added to Season 2 on Wednesday, I'm not getting too excited because it could easily end in another disappointment. It's difficult not to get excited but it's also too easy to get carried away. Only 3 days remain and the speculation can finally end (until the rumours about Season 3 start)

    Totally agree. My hopes are not high. I know for sure we will get 1 small map.

    It seems Wednesday (Ben tweeted After the 8th before the 10th) is the announcement. I doubt they will give any more info until then, unfortunately.

    The large mode might be more than a large version of blast. I think there is a good chance it will be.

    Offline is the best way to play, IMO. My last comment was saying I think the large Arcade mode will have some objectives instead of being a larger version of Team Battles or Blast.

    Unlike online, offline bots play objectives and don't have egos which is why like many other games I prefer offline. Ive never touched online in The Past few COD games because the devs have added good bot support. Hopefully BF2 will bring more bot supported modes in the next few updates which is what is needed.

    A lot of times bots allow for split screen, online split screen is extremely rare.

  • Two more days till news. I hope it's not good news but GREAT news. Like 2 to 3 game modes.
  • I know the holo screen will be gone thank the maker. I will be able to see what my skins look like.

    I think we will get at least 1 new game mode.

    I know for a fact we will get 1 map for offline. Even though I hope we get 2 new ones and 4 to 6 from the last game. Well I hope they port over every single last map from the last game over for offline and we get large mode and starfighter assault even the maps for ships from last game.

    Might be expecting quite a bit from just one update there. Whilst I think in time this will happen, I think in terms of the next season the best we can expect is one of the two big game modes and whatever new maps that get added in. Obviously I’d be delighted with more, but if we got just the one mode I’d still be ecstatic.

    Why does it feel like to me some want large scale Blast? It’s fun and all but it gets boring without an objective like taking a control point or blow that up, etc. Wouldn’t “Conquest” large scale be waaaay better? Heck “Extraction” is looking good right now...atleast give us something big Offline.

    Do you really want more Blast Offline? :o It’s fun and all but without an objective like taking a Control Point or blowing up something it gets dull. “Conquest” (with expanded square maps) would be waaay better. But for now I’d settle for “Extraction” Offline. :)
