Not looking for criticism or cynicism or griping. Just thoughts on potential content.

I'm generally thinking we'll see the following:

MAPS
  • Jakku: Niima Outpost -
  • Erevana Freighter - large bay w/Falcon, halls w/quarters & cockpit, gridlike storage area, engine rooms
  • Takodana: Nymeve Castl] - possibly partially in ruins
  • Takodana: Forest - green and mossy, steep hills and ravines, lake nearby
  • D'Qar: Rebel Base - especially if it gets attacked in Episode 8
  • Starkiller Base: Interior - detention center, command area, generator and chasm
  • Starkiller Base: Twilight Forest - snowy and dim, pine trees, cliffs

WEAPONS
  • EL-16 HFE Rifle - standard issue for Resistance Soldiers
  • Glie-44 Pistol - standard issue for Resistance Pilots and Officers
  • F-11D Rifle - standard issue for First Order Stormtroopers

  • Wasp Rifle -
  • Heavy Bore Rifle -
  • Donderbus Blaster -

  • I see one problem: Too less content for Battlefront vanilla game.

  • Three heroes and villains at launch Rey, Finn and Poe/ han.... Kylo, Hux and Phasma.
    Seeing phasma in action would certainly be cool. Poe or han would be awesome, If they release chewie Id find that lazy but maybe as a free hero (Dream on). Now I wont speculate on their abilities but I will on other potential heroes after episode 6;
    Villains: Rae Sloane (Played a big part in Aftermath, A new dawn, Bottleneck and The Levers Of Power in The Rise Of The Empire series.)
    Snoke: We never say Palpatine in action until episode 6. Why cant we get a prelude of snoke?
    Knights of Ren members as Hero guards or a possible villain.
    FN-2199: C´mon.... you want it. If he can stand his ground against Poe, an almost garunteed hero, he deserves it. His Death was more honorable than greedo's.
    Anyone else who comes in the new movies. It isnt officially canon to me palpatine or boba fett are dead, especially boba since he has a solo movie coming in 2020.
    Heroes:
    Luke: Obviously.... Cmon its inevitable.
    Leia: We havent seen her in action in her age, but Han did stuff, why cant she?
    Chewie: Also self explanatory
    Maz Kanata: She is force sensitive and also ties into the Aftermath series. In a deleted scene everyone knows she knocks a roof down onto a bunch of troopers.
    Everyone from aftermath :joy:
    Jas Emari would be my favorite though: A bounty hunter whos aunt was Sugi. She had a modified slug thrower that was basically a semi automatic cycler rifle.
    Trooper Variations
    I dont know about you but event though clone troopers are cool and all I dont want a rainbow on the battlefront.
    Riot Control Troopers
    Flame Troopers
    Megablaster heavy assault troopers
    Snow troopers
    Storm Trooper
    Storm Trooper Pauldrons
    First Order Officers
    New Vehicles
    Tie Fighter
    X wing
    Reys speeder: This would be cool. A speeder bike mode where the hero gets this.
    Falcon: Not new but it will be added.
    Poe Damerons Fighter.
    Kylos Command shuttle: New game mode idea where someone actually has to escort this by flying it while you are carrying reinforcements. Speculation later if this thread does good.
    First Order Assault Walker: Like an ATST but the pilot is exposed.
    Special Forces speeder bike: Also a speeder bike replacement.
    First Order Snow Speeder: The one from the deleted scene where Rey And Poe were riding it.
    First Order Troop Carrier: A transport vehicle with cannons. Would also make for a good mode.
    While thats all Im sure the Empire has ATAT like vehicles. This is also just counting TFA merch, nothing from the books.
    New Guns
    Sonn-Blas F-11D Blaster Rifle: Basically the new E-11. Phasma has a custom one
    BlasTech EL-16: The new A280c basically.
    EL-16HE: Poe´s Gun
    Barrett M82A1 based hunting rifle. Grummgars rifle: Like the relby?
    Dl-44
    Eirriss Ryloth Defense Tech Gile-44 blaster pistol: Small pistol carried by X-wing pilots.
    LPA NN-14 blaster pistol: The gun rey uses.
    Sonn-Blas SE-44c Blaster Pistol: Like the new SE-14c but is bigger.
    SoroSub JSP-14 Pistol: Seen briefly in the background of TFA. Desert Eagle based.
  • Lololololol.... What's D'Quar? Isn't the rebel base in takodonna? Kinda hard to tell since they're both the same unoriginal planet like Endor! Not hatin', Just Sayin'

  • But hey, outta respect for my Prequel Brethen, I'll leave. Peace emote
  • If using the LEGO The Force Awakens game, there are also other planets to explore during that era.

    Also, don't forget that concept art appeared to have infantry fighting on the surface of First Order Star Destroyers.

    True. But they almost certainly won't use this idea for the current / OT game anyway, while there may be a chance it will get considered for the next game... =)

    D'Qar was the planet with the rebel base. Seen only in interior, except for a few shots that looked more like savannah lands if I'm remembering right.

    Takodana was where Maz Kanata's castle by Lake Nymeve was located.

    Thats why I listed them as such, separately. =)

  • A lot of thought went into your list, kudos for that.

    Let's not forget that the game will come out concurrent with Episode VIII, so we may get some new things from that we haven't seen yet.

  • N3gativePrime - thanks for the response. Most of what you wrote was already included in my original post, but the stuff that wasn't is quoted below:
    Villains: Rae Sloane (Played a big part in Aftermath, A new dawn, Bottleneck and The Levers Of Power in The Rise Of The Empire series.)
    Jas Emari would be my favorite though
    If they include anyone from the books, they would be good choices. I don't know if they'll be including characters from the books, though.

    Knights of Ren members as Hero guards or a possible villain.
    Neat idea. Though we don't know for sure whether the Knights of Ren are still around or not. I would imagine they are, and that we'll see more of them later, but that could also lead to new stand-out characters with force powers, who would make better Heroes than guards. We'll just have to wait and see.

    FN-2199
    Nah. He's basically just one of many heavy/riot troopers.

    Maz Kanata: She is force sensitive and also ties into the Aftermath series.
    Could be. If they ended up using my commanders idea, should make a better commander than a hero.

    I dont know about you but event though clone troopers are cool and all I dont want a rainbow on the battlefront.
    In the sequel-based game, episode 7 and on? I agree with you. But if they do battle front 3 as clone wars like they talked about, then I fully hope to see the 327th striped in yellow, the 41st in green, the 501st in blue, the 212th in gold, the 35th in red, the 21st in purple Marines armor, etc. Not to mention the ARC Troopers, BARC Troopers, Captain's, etc.

    Riot Control Troopers
    Megablaster heavy assault troopers
    Are those two different classes?

    New Guns
    Sonn-Blas F-11D Blaster Rifle
    BlasTech EL-16
    Gile-44 blaster pistol
    LPA NN-14 blaster pistol
    SE-44c Blaster Pistol
    JSP-14 Pistol
    I had already included all the blasters you mentioned,

    except
    Barrett M82A1 based hunting rifle. Grummgars rifle: Like the relby?
    Good catch! Do you know what it's called?

    Don't forget that some items should be will probably be recycled from one game to the next, such as
    • Thermal Detonator
    • Bowcaster
    • Jumppack
    • Smartrocket (or close variation)

  • This is a great thread for speculation for the next battlefront. Here's my idea. Instead of having star cards and customizable load outs, we could potentially have classes instead, like the assault class, heavy class, flame tropper class, riot control class, etc
  • Nice ideas you have here! Also, General Leia would be nice to see in offline missions/campaign.
    Battlefront II has a 45.8% chance of success.

    Interesting. Like the Impavid in the old Tartakovsky animated Clone Wars... I actually worked on ideas for a BF2 mod map on the Impavid, but it never got made. Had the Republic Venator crippled and lurching above the Separatist ship... Clones spawned in the hangar of the dying ship wearing space-saving armor, and dropped down to fight on the surface of the Droid ship. There were several places you could use to enter the ship, all destroyable or destroyed areas of hull, or you could drop down into the CIS hangar. Had Saesee Tiin as a Hero, with a white space helmet that looked almost Mandalorian.

    Do you think they'll integrate any Rogue One content? I would love to see Jedha makes its way into Battlefront. The more films they can pull content from the better (assuming it works timeline wise). I'm actually pretty stoked for Battlefront II.

    I can't wait to see your disappointment due to the game having less than a year and a half of development time before it is released.

    Problem there is that I like this Battlefront. So, sorry buddy, but you won't get to enjoy my disappointment. Now, if it ends up being PT? Then yeah, you'll get all the disappointment your sorry soul can handle. Sound good?

    I want the PT and OT I can't stand the ST since it's a blatant rip off of the OT.

    They're making an OT for this generation. So yeah, it'll be a rip off of the OT. I'm all for that. PT isn't even salvageable. Who the **** comes up with anything original these days anyways? All we see from Hollywood are forced sequels and absolutely disgusting remakes of movies that had no business being remade or even tampered with. It's a joke.

    Okay, so, back on topic...

    What kind of star cards seem likely? Assuming they stay with star cards. I have a feeling there will be a lot of new content from Episode 8, and some sneaky previews of stuff from Episode 9...
  • This is good speculation and all guys, but lets be realistic here. I think EA will make BF2 pretty similar to the current BF (they may chuck a campaign in there too, but I think it will be pretty weak).

    3 Heroes/Villains

    Renn, Phasma, Hux
    Poe, Finn, Rey

    4 Maps

    Jakku (Niima Outpost), Takodana, Starkiller Base, Eravana freighter (cqc map?)

    Small Variety of Game Modes (2-3 major ones)

    Small Variety of Weapons and Star Cards

    Overpriced DLC's


    NOTE: This isn't me bagging BF or anything (I love the game), it's just it feels a bit empty and I fear the devs of BF2 will do the same thing to the next game.
  • Episode 8 content? Rogue One?

    Rogue One content is coming with the next dlc so it probably won't be included. I think BF2 is coming out before episode 8 as well, so I don't think they will be able to include any of its content in the game without spoiling the movie, although I'm not too sure.

    If it was PT fans of the old Battlefront would rejoice greatly. But we already know it's ST.

    It's one planet, Scarif. Surely there are Hero's, weapons and more maps they can take out of this film. What about Jedha? The potential there for urban maps is incredible. I really don't think this DLC being Rogue One means it's off the table for Battlefront II.

    Rogue One is considered part of the Original Trilogy era. If BF2 is exclusively Sequel era, I would not expect Rogue One to appear. Also it was already announced that Krennic and Jyn Erso would be the hero characters. If their plan is to keep supporting the first Battlefront with OT-era content then maybe we'd get more from Rogue One. We don't know their plan though.

    It's coming November next year and episode 8 is coming December 15th next year... It doesn't take a genius to figure that one out.

    How do you know it comes out in November? Saying it is because this game released in November aswell isn't a valid answer. Btw, nice job with your bragging. ;)

    Jakku DLC was free, at the time of the film's release. Plus since it's not a story game, they can go ahead and put Episode VIII locations and tech in without spoiling any of the movie.
