Star Wars: Battlefront 2’s Writers Revealed

The writers for Star Wars: Battlefront II have been revealed.

The story has two main scribes: Walt Williams, who wrote the story for the well-received military shooter Spec Ops: The Line, and former IGN video game editor Mitch Dyer.

Game director Mark Thompson told Glixel that both Williams and Dyer are “voracious fans” of Star Wars; each posses an “encyclopedia knowledge of everything that existed” in Star Wars, he said.

Unlike many Star Wars stories, Battlefront II’s is told from the perspective of an Empire soldier. The game picks up after the events of Return of the Jedi, putting you into the boots of Iden Versio.

“Between the original trilogy and the new trilogy, there were stories starting to be published [as fiction], but no ‘visual’ storytelling,” Thompson said about choosing this particular era for Battlefront II. “There wasn’t anything visual or interactive that had been done in that space. That seemed like a good place for us to do something different and break new ground.”

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
