Director talks about bringing Star Wars: Battlefront II to Nintendo Switch and Project Scorpio
Electronic Arts and DICE promised to announce Star Wars: Battlefront II during this weekend coinciding with Star Wars Celebration. They have fulfilled the promise and have also shown us the first trailer of the game.
As you already know, Star Wars: Battlefront II will release this year on November 17, but many fans still want to know if the title will arrive on Nintendo Switch and also use the power of Project Scorpio.
For this, the site Level Up has made an exclusive interview with Mark Thompson, director of the game, who said that Star Wars: Battlefront II will use the power of Project Scorpio, without giving further information about it. “It is a game made with Frostbite. It is a graphics engine which is always at the forefront of any hardware we have out there,” Thompson said.
As for the Nintendo Switch, the director simply mentioned “that one is a question for another day,” nevertheless, he did not rule out the possibility to see the game on the new console of the Big N. In any case, we will have to wait for more information on this.
Star Wars: Battlefront II will have a single player campaign mode. The story will be starring Iden Versio, commander of the Infernal Squadron. It will be a story of revenge, betrayal and redemption that takes place over 30 years to tell the events that took place between the end of Episode VI and the beginning of Episode VII.
The first installment was heavily criticized for having a shortage of content at its launch, and having a Season Pass in which too much content was offered at a high price. Electronic Arts seems to have listened to its players and will bet on a different policy, and there will be no Season Pass for this new title.
Recall that Star Wars: Battlefront II, the second part of the successful game will launch on November 17 on PS4, Xbox One and PC. Besides everything else, DICE has shown interest in launching the game also on the new platforms of Nintendo Switch and Project Scorpio.
