Star Wars: Battlefront II: New Details, Leaks, And PC Beta System Requirements [VIDEO]

Quite a few things have happened regarding Star Wars: Battlefront II in the past few days.

On Reddit, Some_Info has already leaked a few things about the game (which we wrote about previously), and he’s back again. He revealed that DICE has come up with an idea to prevent players quit at the end of a match before they end up losing.

„As many of you noticed, some or many players used to leave the server seconds or minutes before the end of the round judging by the advantage of the other team and the fact that they will simply lose the match.

There is a new rewarding system to prevent this. The more you play, the more credits you will earn at the end. Not sure if this will be ever be published or explained, but I will give you an idea of how it will work.

If you play 3-5 minutes, you will get a small amount of bonus. For 5-7 minutes you will get like 15% more. Next criteria are for 7-10 minutes and so on until the last criteria. There should be around 6-7 rewarding criteria and it will gradually increase for the last ones – it will make you think twice before leaving the game, especially in overtimes.

I believe this should be seen in the BETA as well,” he says.

Electronic Arts has revealed what the PC system requirements are for the beta, which will run between October 6 and 9 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. (Pre-ordering will allow you to play from October 4).

Guillaume Mroz, the Hero Designer of the game, talked about several subjects on Twitter. He says that making the AI handle heroes would be difficult, but he says that they might end up implementing it in Skirmish and Arcade modes. The lightsaber combat has also seen improvements: it is now more responsive and agile than before, and you’ll need to dodge and block to survive. Thanks to the live environment, unlocking skins could be possible, but the team is looking into the possibilities here as well.

Star Wars: Battlefront II will launch on November 17 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
