2015’s iteration of Star Wars Battlefront had the makings of a great online shooter, but came up short when it came to meaningful offline content. With the reported addition of a single player campaign and multiple eras, Battlefront 2 is already looking to be an improvement in several key areas. Hopefully April 15 gives fans a satisfactory look at what to expect from a Star Wars shooter campaign.
