Star Wars Battlefront II Won't Lack Trooper Customization, According to DICE
Star Wars Battlefront II is introducing a new class system similar to the one we're used to in the Battlefied series. While this makes for a deeper gameplay once on the, err, battlefield, sure enough this is going to limit the customization component, which was pretty wild in 2015's Battlefront thanks to a particular card system.
Is customization totally going away, by the way? It doesn't look like this, at least according to associate design director Dennis Brann. "It's not the same freedom," he admitted chatting with a follower on Twitter. "But you can definitely customise your trooper class quite drastically to suit your playstyle."
Honestly I didn't mind if Star Wars: Battlefront II stayed the same as the original when it comes to multiplayer progression, but I understand that a class system makes for somehow deeper and longer gameplay experiences, something that the original DICE's Battlefront was clearly lacking. That, together with more maps and modes from day one, and a single-player campaign, should be enough.
