Star Wars Battlefront 2 space battles mode was revealed at Gamescom, here we have more information regarding the mode. If you thought that there would be a Star Wars Battlefront 2 space battles mode without any objectives then, unfortunately, that is not the case. The mode is called Starfighter Assault.
While it seemed great, there are players that wanted to blow up enemies without any object. From what we know right now, that will not be the case. At least not at launch. Criterion GM Matt Webster has confirmed that there will be no team death match mode or non-objective modes in Star Wars Battlefront 2 space battles.
This means that there will be no free-roam. This is what Webster had to say:
No, Starfighter Assault is the one starfighter mode. But how starfighters and aerial vehicles handle is the same in Galactic Assault and other parts of the games. So they are transferable skills.
We have also got a new update regarding the roll system for space combat. Battlefront 2 Designer John Stanley has confirmed that there will be an auto roll feature in the game so that players that do not have the skill can do some cool moves in the game. This feature can also be turned off if you want to have more control.
In terms of the autoroll, we’ve got a choice there. So you can either have autoroll on or off.
Be sure to check out the gameplay and the different ships that you will be able to take into space with you. Star Wars Battlefront 2 is the biggest game that the developers have made and this is what EA executive vice president Patrick Söderlund had to say about the game:
Star Wars Battlefront [II] is probably the biggest shooter that we have ever built, in just pure size of what’s in there, with a deep, vastly improved multiplayer, with space battles that we showed here yesterday that, frankly, almost could be a game in itself, together with more arcade or skirmish mode, which is co-operative-based, together with a full-length campaign. It is the biggest shooter that we’ve ever built, and right now we’re polishing it, making sure that it’s as good as it needs to be when it comes out.
