SoloPlayersMatter has been anxiously hoping for info on whether this mode or something akin to Instant Action will feature in Star Wars Battlefront 2. I realize more specific info on modes may be being kept under wraps till a later date, so even if that is the only response we get atm, itd still be much appreciated : )

Game looks pretty awesome in scope so far; classes, more customisation, clone wars... Skirmish would be the icing on the cake for us.

    I hope so but probably not. Its sickening, but they really didn't answer if it will be in the game or not. People asked for an offline mode in the first one and we got a half **** version. I can't imagine why they would leave it out of this one.

  • They mentioned an "offline co-op mode" with split-screen, but so far they're being vague on the details. We don't know if it will feature all eras, if it will have vehicles, starfighters, or heroes, we don't know if it will be based on the multiplayer modes or if it will be like Battles or Training Missions... I really wish EA would be more transparent with this, tell us exactly what we can expect from this mode.

    Arcade mode needs 20v20 and starfighter battles for Battlefront II!!!

    The guy who did interview with devs on twich livestream was a total ****. He asked them questions about stuff that everybody already knew that will be in the game but could not ask questions about what battlefront community really wanted to know!? Where is **** galactic conquest, where is skirmish?!?!

    That means you co-op through internet connection.

    As mentioned in a previous thread, the "News" section of the official website says "You will also cooperate against AI foes in skirmishes that span the cinematic eras, and engage enemies in entirely new modes. " Whether or not that's a reference to the mode or they're using "Skirmish" as a description is currently unknown. I can't imagine they'd do the latter, but you never know.
  • 3 studios are working on the game, I doubt anything will done half heartedly, that little split screen Co-op thing is probably Skirmish.
    I am the same user as Elimelech401, that account was not tied to the game. I am hoping for more Skirmish with split screen and hero AI.
  • we need offline co-op skirmish !!!

    remember, it says offline...with customizable heroes and troopers...no way is that restricted only to co-op if a friend is over...for offline lol. not to mention we all know what "skirmishes against the ai" are...we saw it in last game, they wouldn't use "skirmishes" just to throw it out, they would have said "battles" or "conflicts" if it was MP based only, not something they used to name an offline mode for specifically.

    not saying dont be wary, but things are looking up

    Here's hoping... but assume nothing until they tell us exactly what it is. For all we know, that co-op mode could be the same as the Training, Battles, or Survival missions in Battlefront 2015.

    An interesting choice of words to be sure.
  • I would really like to see a healthy offering of skirmish maps/modes! Since there's a solo campaign, I get the feeling hero AI will be present.
  • Is this proof of skirmish?
    C9ex_9TVYAAZMw3.jpg:large

    I'd take that with a grain of salt. The details on this mode are scarce; could it be Skirmish? Yes, if we're lucky. But unfortunately it's just as likely it's just Training/Battles/Survival. I wish EA would stop being so vague.

    I'm skeptical too, but there's no way someone would write "Skirmishes", the name of the offline game mode people demanded for months, instead of "battles". It just seems purposely worded.
  • But does it also mean you can play it solo, or does that also mean you can log in a friend in split screan and play together online.
  • This is what the Origin description says about offline-co op for pc, really it's just solo on PC: Train Offline. Practice makes perfect. Enjoy solo offline play where you can earn rewards, customize troopers and heroes, then bring your upgrades into the online multiplayer battleground.

    they said skirmish on another page too, Im cautious It could be a screw over, but Imo, they made skirmish, they know what it means. And to use that word more than once to describe the mode...to me its a given, well a 95% given.

    I would Imagine. If its offline Co-op I cant imagine making it restrited to offline, but only in co-op with a friend over, especially if you can transport said stats online, I imagine, if in the sad case your too busy or have no friends if your a creeper, you can do solo.

    The first game advertised Missions mostly for the Co-op experience, but they were playable solo too.

    Like I said I think we can start looking up, but in a cautious way

    I agree. So far what we've seen would indicate that Battlefront 2 is going in the direction the first game should have.

    They robbed me once in the last game by not bothering to slap some bots in ALL the DLC maps. So greedy and lazy. As great as the new one looks, I will not buy it if it only has partial skirmish on just a few maps.

    The single player campaign will no doubt be short. That is a joke. Only complete Skirmish (ON ALL MAPS, IN ALL MODES) can make it worth a buy. Otherwise I'll snag it in the bargain bin for $20.00 like tons of others in 2018 sometime.

    I should add that because it's SW, I would be willing to pre-order once it is confirmed that skirmish / instant action / conquest mode will 100% be in the game at launch and supported through all seasons with maps, skins, unlocks, etc. etc. I never pre-order games. Especially not from EA. Lets make a change shall we EA?

    might wanna wait for that bargain bin deal then, Dennis said it wouldn't be a total copy of all modes online into offline with bots
  • Is this proof of skirmish?
    C9ex_9TVYAAZMw3.jpg:large

    No this is pretty much what it says it is a stupid boring Coop mode like survival or the training missions on the previous game.
    We are yet to see information on if the real Skirmish (instant action) versus local multiplayer will be included but saddly all the people who get an interview with the devs are pretty much **** that they keep asking for questions we already have information about instead of pressing about matters the community actually want in game.

    You do realise said youtubers are told beforehand what they can and cant ask about?... Which is usually echoed by the dev response 'we aren't talking about that just yet.'

    Ground to Space was never a promise

    Technically it was by the cancelled Star Wars Battlefront 3 by Pandemic, which was shown from alpha videos as a working concept. However, instead on pushing the series forward, Battlefront 2015 took a dozen steps back with only 4 world, boots on the ground only game (with some tacked on starfighter combat), and online only. With this one, they seem to be catching up to what the original Battlefront 2 offered, but still seems that it is not on that level yet, because there is so much that fans wanted is not explained. As for ground to space battles, that should be in the game, make it much more fun and immersive.

    Moreover, this thread was posted way back when we didn't know for sure if Skirmish was even going to be in the sequel. The OP is still asking whether or not Skirmish will be in the game, and cannot be edited.

    Is their technology even capable of rendering such a trip without a loading screen. I think it would be a massive undertaking to go from the ground to outer space on the same map.

  • Meh... for me ground to space isnt really needed, besides with 2 large areas to cover youll need more than 40 characters for them to both feel 'full'. Its clear the devs didnt want to / couldnt exceed the 20 vs 20 limit in the last game, and i dont see that changing this time either.
