A lot of people may be worried that Star Wars Battlefront will be deemed insignificant once. Star Wars Battlefront 2 comes out this year, but players don’t have to worry. News has it that the developers are still planning on bringing updates to the game in 2017.
According to iDigitalTimes, rumors have been coming up that the servers are going empty for Star Wars Battlefront and that the game has seen a significant drop in users ever since launch. EA’s community manager Matt Everett, however, has debunked those claims over at the Battlefront forums and he even gives an update on what improvements could be coming to the game in the future.
The last update for the game was supposedly the Scarif expansion, which brought players to the beach planet that was featured in “Rouge One: A Star Wars Story.” That DLC was released back in December, but since then, there have been reports on glitches in the game like hero upgrades not working, as well as other heroes becoming essentially invincible. Surely DICE will take time to work on those bugs. Maybe another “Rogue One” expansion featuring more playable heroes like Baze and Chirrut would be much appreciated?
Star Wars Battlefront 2 is said to focus more on the new trilogy that was introduced with “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” back in 2015. With that game, players can expect to take control of characters like Rey (Daisy Ridley), Finn (John Boyega), and Kylo Ren (Adam Driver); it is even possible that an older Han Solo (Harrison Ford) could be playable. The current Battlefront is more focused on the world in the original trilogy, so even if Battlefront 2 does come out, the first Battlefront game will be the only modern game to have old stormtroopers, Darth Vader, and Boba Fett.

Even the people who didn’t love Rogue One: A Star Wars Story left the theater feeling exhilirated, thanks to the final sequence featuring none other than Darth Vader. In a vicious and violent moment, Vader shows the true power of the dark side of the Force, deflecting blaster bolts, slashing, Force choking, and stabbing his way through Rebel soldiers like nothing.
While Vader’s presence, and the idea of a hard copy of the Death Star plans being handed off to Leia were both in the initial concept of the closing moments of the film, the dark side rampage was a late add.
“It was a fantastic add – the Vader action scene, with him boarding the ship and dispatching all those rebel soldiers. That was something conceptualized a little later,” editor John Gilroy, who joined the project toward the end of the reshoots, told Yahoo! Movies. “The main structure was there,” he clarified, but the actual Vader, going through the air lock and trying to get to the shuttle Star Wars fans know is the Tantive IV, moment was new.
“It was a really great punch in the arm and something I think fans wanted to see,” Gilroy said.
That also explains why two actors are credited as portraying Darth Vader in the suit – Spencer Wilding did all the original scenes, while Daniel Naprous was brought in for the action sequence, purely due to the timing of the additional shots.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story may not have had an opening crawl or the word “episode” in its title, but like other Star Wars movies before it, will get a comic book adaptation. The six-issue Marvel comic, written by Jody Houser and illustrated by Emilio Laiso, will kick off in April. EW spoke with Hauser about her vision for the adaptation and how she thinks Rogue One differs from the rest of the Star Wars canon. Check that out below, along with two covers for the first issue, the second of which may answer the “Where’s Rey?” toy controversy.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: How will the Rogue One adaptation compare to the film? What can you tease about how you’re splitting up the story into six parts? Will there be anything not seen in the film?
JODY HOUSER: The comics will definitely expand on what was seen in both Rogue One the film and the novelization. Lucasfilm and Gareth Edwards had a bunch of ideas for extra scenes and character moments that didn’t make it into the film. I’m having a lot of fun playing around with those. Adaptations across different forms of media have always been a great opportunity to explore other facets of the story, and we’re excited to have new material in the Rogue One comic.
There are a ton of things I like about Rogue One — highlighting desperate guerrilla nature of Rebels, Vader/Tarkin renaissance, and beautiful new planets, to name a few. What do you like about it? What are you particularly excited to tackle in your version of the story?
Aside from really enjoying a lot of the new characters, seeing a more fragile and grayer Rebel Alliance was one of the most intriguing parts of Rogue One for me. Outside of the battle between the Jedi and the Sith, which has always been a very clear black-and-white conflict, we see a very messy and very relatable struggle where making the right choices and figuring out the best course of action is rarely easy.
Rogue One has a noticeably darker tone than other Star Wars films. How do you think it fits into the franchise, and how are you replicating or modifying that tone for your version?
Rogue One definitely puts the “War” in Star Wars in a way that we haven’t necessarily seen in the movies before. Sure, we’ve had populated worlds and stations the size of moons blown up, Order 66, but we’re not used to ALL of our leads being expendable. We’re not used to seeing so much of the death and destruction close up. I think stripping away some of the fantasy and raising the stakes is a brave move, especially in a precedent-setting movie like this. It adds weight and meaning to the events that immediately follow in A New Hope by showing the cost. Of course, I did start my comics career writing primarily horror and tragedy/tear-jerker shorts, so I may be a bit biased here…
Although there are a few cameos and shoutouts, Rogue One is populated almost entirely by new characters. Who are your favorites, and why? Who are you most excited to tackle?
I love the characters who stole the movie as much as everyone else — Chirrut, Baze and K-2SO, I would say — but I find something really compelling about the trio of Bodhi, Jyn, and Cassian. You have the new convert, the lapsed believer, and the life-long devout thrown together to work for a common goal. That’s a dynamic I’m excited to explore further.
Although there are several references to the Force, Rogue One has no actual Jedi, one of the most recognizable mainstays of the franchise. What is Star Wars for you without Jedi?
Star Wars is still a huge, huge universe, especially when you consider the are only a handful of Force users left alive at this point in history. I think it fits well with the more realistic feel of the story. At the same time, it’s fascinating to see what the Force means to those outside the Jedi and Sith dynamic, and how they relate to it — or perhaps how it uses them…
