Return of the Multiplayer: 2005's Star Wars: Battlefront II Multiplayer Returns
On its release in 2005, Star Wars: Battlefront II was an exciting adventure through the beloved sci-fantasy universe of Star Wars. Fans of the original Battlefront fell in love with the addition of space combat and playable heroes, and Battlefront II quickly earned a place as one of the best Star Wars games ever made.
Now, with the help of GOG's Galaxy client, Disney and GOG are bringing back the Battlefront II multiplayer experience. Whether you own the game through GOG or Steam, you can jump back into one of the most iconic Star Wars games of all time, without any extra tools.
Nine years after its release, players were forced to search for and utilize third-party tools to continue their battles across the stars, when GameSpy servers were shut down in May 2014.
While EA has been breathing life back into the Battlefront games with 2015's Star Wars: Battlefront and the upcoming Battelfront 2, for some gamers, there's nothing like the nostalgia of playing the classic version. Check out Steam and GOG to pick up Star Wars: Battlefront II or log back in today to get into the fight.
