Star Wars Battlefront 2 screenshot of the singleplayer main character

Ever since Star Wars Battlefront 2's reveal during this year's E3 the focus was firmly planted on multiplayer. So much so that you might be surprised to hear that the singleplayer campaign will not revolve around the good guys as is tradition, but rather on the newly-defeated Imperials!

If you're wondering what the story is going to be about, and what sort of challenges the developers faced while trying to create some likable 'bad guys', you'll find what you seek in the newly posted "Behind the Story" developer video. Have a look, its well worth spending a couple of minutes on:

Unfortunately, you'll have to wait for quite a while before getting your hands on the singleplayer story. To be more specific, you'll have to wait until Star Wars Battlefront 2 releases on November 17, 2017. On the positive side there will be an Open Beta for both PC and consoles on October 6th, while those that have decided to pre-order will be given access two days earlier, on October 4th. It most likely won't contain any of the story, but it will at least give you an idea whether you're going to enjoy the actual gameplay, which as I hear tends to be a pretty important part of video games. Silliness aside, you can learn a few more tidbits about Battlefront 2 by heading over to the official website.
