A quick update on EA Play and the June Update

Hello there,

We are just over a week away from EA Play 2019 and we wanted to give you a quick update on some things.
This time last year we took to the stage and announced that more of the Clone Wars was coming to Star Wars Battlefront II. This time around we will be doing things a little differently.

We have a great update planned for June and we'll have a Community Transmission dropping on Friday 7th that goes into all the details. We'll then follow up towards the middle of the month with a Community Update video, with the update itself landing on June 26th.

There's more to June than just the Capital Supremacy map that is currently listed on the roadmap and we can't wait to talk more about it.

Myself, Dennis, CJ, alongside others from the Star Wars team at DICE will be at EA Play. So if you're there, do feel to stop us, say hello (there) and talk to us about all things Star Wars Battlefront II.

    Dennis mentioned on Twitter that an updated Roadmap was coming in June. Will this be part of the June 7th CT or will it be coming with the Community Update video in the middle of the month?

    They probably didnt want do skip it, but EA probably wanted to let the stage to other games rather than a two year old game like battlefront

    like i said. dumbest decision they could have done.

    We know there will be some new developments on Battlefront II, Galaxy of Heroes, The Old Republic & clearly Jedi: Fallen Order, which is releasing at the end of the year.

    But besides that, will we see any new updates on other Star Wars games in developments since we are over halfway the terms of the Star Wars license agreement, which expires in 2023?

    Like, say an update on if EA Vancouver's development on Project Ragtag (transferred from Visceral) was retooled into another new Star Wars game to be released next year.

    What about Rise to Power, which was last seen in a Closed Pre Alpha state?

    Motive, even though the founder has moved to Google, might be working on their own Star Wars game because they were rumored to working on one besides Battlefront II's campaign.

    Add padme and it would be cool if the skins for rebel troopers werent so specific. Like if I got one quarren skin, i could use that for any class not just heavy, kinda like bf 2015.

    Big requests that you missed:
    • Private Matches
    • Server Browser
    • 1v1 anyone vs anyone mode
    • Ahsoka and Ventress (but these two are as close to being confirmed as they can be without it being official so maybe not needed to list)

    There is no need for a 1v1 If you have private matches. That would be unnecessary.

    Well - if it's a mode then it's very simple to just jump in - but yes

    The point was more to write what people are asking for and both have been asked for

  • Battlefront 2 was the main reason I was going to ea play for. (Apart from fallen order and battlefield) so this had better be worth not having battlefront 2 on the big stage.
    Hopefully these announcements are rogue one or battle of Coruscant

    Same. I would love to hear of a new map, or weapon announcements. But I think itll be mainly skins related and that CS is coming to other heroes.i think some skins will tie into the levelling.

    That shouldnt impact on the game though. Its like the equivalent of me loving football and supporting Newcastle, so if I was developing Fifa would I ensure Newcastle had the best stats and any future content being related to them? No.

    Bit of a pap analogy. But my point is clone wars has had a whole year of DLC now. Other eras should get a chance and rotate evenly.

    Right but in terms of the general Battlefront 2 population Ahsoka is probably the most desired assets for the game. On reddit the vast majority would be ecstatic. This forum is not so high on adding her and Ventress. I would be happy with them and really like the characters personally - they are potentially the most developed characters in all of Star Wars - and I'd be happy with them in the game especially if they are designed well. And then they could add two more blaster heroes to have a balanced roster of melee and range, and call it a day with heroes. Otherwise and simultaneously they should be focused on all of the other stuff. And in terms of eras, the OT still has the most content in terms of maps and heroes - CS is tipping the scales since the mode is exclusive to PT, but Ben has already confirmed it will come to the OT "soon.".
  • Well let's see what comes next week then. Nothing can be worse than a year of Clone Wars.
