Star Wars: Battlefront 2for Windows

8

A massive battle awaits you, should you choose to pick up your blaster. The game is set in the traditional Star Wars universe and features maps from iconic locations such as Hoth or Endor.

A saga of war

In Star Wars Battlefront 2 you get to blast rebel scum into ashes and take command of epic firefights.

With many movies, games and novels, the Star Wars universe has had many memorable battles. Some of these have inspired the maps and game modes that you’ll find in the game. Weapons, characters, ships, and more come together in this title.

Play as part of iconic Star Wars factions such as the Rebel Alliance, Galactic Empire, Old Republic, and the Confederacy. There are also various roles you can play. Choose a Droideka to cause maximum mayhem, or a Rebel spy to silently hide amongst the enemy.

It’s an old game, you’ll notice this the moment you load it up. The graphics are quite dated. It’s still very well made, though, and the game's age only adds to the splendor that’s created as you fight across multiple planets and use all the available troops.

The game also boasts a great, welcoming community that continues to grow. If a Steam workshop were available, there would likely be hundreds of downloadables available. Sadly all modding needs to happen outside of Steam, but the community has guides available for this.

The game is old and has had a newer revamp released. However, many will still come to this version as it contains no microtransactions.

Where can you run this program?

Star Wars Battlefront 2 is available for Windows 2000 and later.

Is there a better alternative?

No. While there is a newer version of Star Wars Battlefront 2 available, the publisher EA implemented a blatant use of microtransactions. If you want a game that’s cheaper on the wallet but still has a strong community, then you’ll enjoy the original.

Our take

Star Wars Battlefront 2 is a golden oldie. It shows its age, but the community behind it is still solid.

Should you download it?

Yes. If you need to scratch your Star Wars battle itch, this is the game for you..
