New official featurette teases Battlefront II’s campaign
EA’s Battlefront II campaign has really taken front-and-center in the marketing of the upcoming game.
A recent featurette by the official PlayStation YouTube channel plays off on that by delving into the new story mode. The video features interviews with Steve Blank, a creative executive at Lucasfilm, and Mark Thompson, the game director at Motive Studios.
Unfortunately, the roughly two-minute video is light on impactful news. There also aren’t any new visuals in terms of cinematics, gameplay or screenshots.
The noteworthy bits I could gather: Motive pitched the campaign’s setting (that spans the time period between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens) and that the story is told from the Imperial point-of-view. Additionally, a PlayStation blog post that released with the video mentions that there’ll be “another peek behind the Battlefront II curtain” soon, so hopefully we get a few more details before EA PLAY begins on June 10.
