Earlier this week, I got to play through the earlier portions of Star Wars: Battlefront II’s single player campaign and speak to Motive’s studio producer David Robillard about the single player campaign specifically.
As soon as the single player campaign was announced earlier this year, gamers were questioning the length. We’re now happy to report that the campaign will last roughly 5-7 hours which actually seems quite decent based on the quality of what we’ve played so far.
In regards to the campaign’s length Robillard stated, “…we thought that around 5-7, maybe 8 hours is probably a good amount of time…we wanted to stay very driven towards the Star Wars fantasy that the players are going to experience and not have it be drawn out.” All up, my playthrough of the first three chapters amounted to around an hour and a half of gameplay.
As reported earlier in the year, Battlefront II will not have a paid season pass and instead all maps, modes and characters will be available for free. When asked about the possibility of some free story-related DLC Robillard said, “We’re not ready to announce anything at this time, we’ll see based on the reception the single player has, if we offer free DLC or not.”
