Star Wars Battlefront II Reveals Death Troopers and Other Special Characters

If there was ever an example of a game company learning from a game’s drawbacks in making a sequel it is Star Wars Battlefront II. Due for release later this year on Xbox One, EA has revealed a new class of playable character for the game. Called Special Characters, the class will come with four options and be based upon our in game performance.  Their official description is as follows:

Special characters stand out. They’re a step between troopers and heroes – distinct, powerful game changers. Special characters break stalemates at choke points, leap over enemy lines to launch surprise attacks, and flush foes out of hiding with streams of liquid flame.

Using Battle Points earned in combat, you can choose to respawn as one of many unique special characters from Star Wars lore. Although you won’t wield the raw power of Han Solo or Darth Maul, you’ll be much more than a match for a single trooper. Each special character comes equipped with potent weapons and powerful abilities.

Being set in between the basic troopers and heroes, we will most likely require slightly fewer battle points than we need to unlock a hero or villain. Since we can choose them upon respawning, we’re going to need to make the decision on whether or not we want to use our points for a Special Character or save them in an attempt for a Hero or Villain.  The four character types are Death Troopers, Flame Thrower Storm Troopers, Wookie Warriors and B2 Rocket Droid. You can see descriptions of them below compliments of the official EAStarWars account as well.

Star Wars Battlefront II will release this November on Xbox One.  Let us know what you think of the new class below
