Original Star Wars Battlefront 2 Receives First Update In 12 Years

When one user pressed for more information, an official account replied "so long as the mods do not change how the game functions and are just for visual effect then you should be OK". This TOS does say that "You may not access, copy, modify, or distribute any EA Service, Content or Entitlements unless authorized by EA or permitted by law".

So it's no surprise that Disney and LucasArts tapped GOG to help maintain the game. We're talking about a mod. Darth Vader in white probably doesn't make sense, versus in black.

Electronic Arts announced November 16, a day before the "Star Wars Battlefront II" game's official launch, that it is temporarily turning off all in-game purchases for the game in response to negative sentiment from gamers on social media. EA canceled or significantly altered a narrative-driven action adventure game in development by Visceral after it closed the studio. But all the work put into this pitch didn't go to waste: Double Damage is now working on an unannounced space shooter, and the Star Wars demo laid the foundation for it. Once the community gains more experience with how EA has structured the game files, the number of options is sure to grow.


It's odd that Battlefront 2 (2005) is still receiving updates, and stranger still that it's not obvious who's actually working on the game. Unfinished menus feature various skins for troops in almost every class.

"The initial catalyst was weaker-than-expected Q3:18 guidance, which suggested sagging expectations for Star Wars Battlefront II", he wrote. The mods referenced above only work on PC. However, it's nice to see Disney and Lucasfilms are doing what they can to maintain classic Star Wars games like Battlefront 2. You can see the shared DNA with Rebel Galaxy in the interface, including the menu, the shield and radar display in the lower left, and the throttle control in the upper right.
