Star Wars Battlefront II Removes Emperor Palpatine

Following a recent update on last week, Emperor Palpatine is removed from Star Wars Battlefront II for now.

Last year's action shooter game Star Wars Battlefront II from EA Dice and Electronic Arts was one of the most hyped titles before release for adding characters from all three trilogies of films but was heavily bashed later for locking them behind pay-walls. Developers and publishers have eventually come to settlement with the fanbase and players were able to play with Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker and many others. However, a recent update has apparently removed Emperor Palpatine from the game.

Star Wars Battlefront II Night on Endor Update

Hunter meets hunted in Star Wars Battlefront II's brand-new limited-time mode Ewok Hunt on the forest moon of Endor, starting April 18.

Last year's one of the most anticipating yet disappointing game Star Wars Battlefront II from EA DICE is getting a new update. Titled "Night on Endor", this update brings you a limited time game mode named Ewok Hunt, which will take you back to relive an experience from Return of the Jedi. On the forest moon of Endor, you can pick a fight as Ewoks or Imperial Stormtroopers for either saving the village or try to survive an unsuspecting ambush out of nowhere.

Star Wars Battlefront II Progression System Revamped

The notorious progression system of the infamous first person shooter Star Wars Battlefront II from last year is going to go through some extreme changes. From developer EA Dice and publisher Electronic Arts, the game had the potential to become one of the most successful games ever tying with the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi film of the new trilogy. An upcoming update dated for March 21 will bring change to heroes, weapons and ship upgrade.

One of the biggest differences between the progression system that is now running and the one that was intended for the game is Star Cards that you could randomly find in loot crates. To boost your stats, the cards are handy but as soon as the update drops, you won't have to look for these cards to shine. The Skill Points you will earn playing multiplayer for experience can be traded to get Star Cards. Then you can upgrade your character, class, weapon or ship as you wish.

Disney to Replace EA for Star Wars Games

Rumor has it that, Electronic Arts might be on the brink of losing their privilege of making Star Wars games from now on as they are most probably losing their licensing agreement of the franchise with Disney. Back in 2012, Disney acquired Lucasfilm and shut down LucasArts division almost immediately because they were not very interested developing Star Wars games by themselves and decided to hand over the task to some established third-party instead.


RELATED: Star Wars Battlefront II Missed Sales Targets

At that time, EA was their top choice for a developer and publisher company to license the Star Wars franchise for making video games. So, an exclusive multi-year licensing agreement was signed by EA on 2013 with Disney and Lucasfilm to create a number of Star Wars games for all popular platforms out there. Since then, EA has released two Star Wars titles; Star Wars Battlefront (2015) and Star Wars Battlefront II (2017).

Star Wars Battlefront II Missed Sales Targets

If things would've been different, Star Wars Battlefront II could have been the successful action shooter video game everyone hoped for it to be. Instead, it becomes such an abomination of the series that the fans held in such high standards previously. All because of Electronic Arts’ (not-so) bright idea of introducing the concept of micro-transactions through in-game loot boxes and thus, causing massive fan outrage.


Recently, Chief Executive Officer Andrew Wilson of Electronic Arts have revealed their most anticipated release of last year, Battlefront II have failed to meet their expected sales target in their quarterly earnings conference call. EA expected to sell at least 10 million copies within the end of December, which is the third quarter of their 2018 fiscal year but so far, they have shipped only 9 million copies of the game and therefore they are one million copies short to meet the estimated sales target.
