It is shaping up to be a big holiday season for the Star Wars franchise. The latest entry in the film series is set to hit theaters in mid-December while the sequel to Battlefront is releasing on November 17th for all major gaming consoles. Just last week EA kicked off the early beta for Star Wars Battlefront 2, giving gamers a chance to get a sneak peak at some of the title’s new additions along with a taste of various game modes. While reviews were somewhat lackluster for the initial Battlefront release, it looks as though EA has tidied up most of the rough edges this time around.
Sony certainly seems to think it will be a success this time around considering the new PlayStation bundles it just announced. Both PS4 Pro and the standard version are getting the Star Wars treatment just in time for the holidays with a pair of new limited edition console bundles.
With release just over a month out, Sony has now unveiled the new Star Wars Battlefront 2 PlayStation 4 bundles. This time we are getting a fairly basic bundle for the standard PS4, but Sony’s high-end Pro machine is seeing a complete overhaul for the limited edition release.
The Limited Edition Star Wars Battlefront II PS4 Pro bundle features a custom designed console and DualShock 4 controller as well as a physical copy of BF2 Deluxe Edition. Described as a “first-of-its kind” design for North America, the new console has a mirror finish emblazoned with Galactic Empire, Resistance and Inferno Squad iconography. For those not familiar, the Inferno Squad is a special Imperial task force found in the game’s single player campaign. You’ll find a host of unique Star Wars logos printed on the DualShock 4 and its touchpad as well.
The Deluxe version of the game allows players to jump in 3 days ahead of the official release date and comes with a host of premium in-game content. You’ll get upgraded versions of the standard trooper classes and “instant access” to Starfighter and elite hero Star Cards.
This Limited Edition Star Wars Battlefront ll PS4 Pro bundle will immerse you in epic Star Wars battles. Featuring a fully customized Jet Black PS4 Pro and DUALSHOCK4 Wireless Controller inspired by the game, and Star WarsBattlefront II: Elite Trooper Deluxe Edition.
The standard PS4 bundle is, well, just that. This is your typical 1TB PS4 and DualShock with a physical copy of Star Wars Battlefront II (standard version).
The new Limited Edition Star Wars Battlefront II PS4 Pro bundle is available on November 14th (just in time to get playing the Deluxe version a few days early) and the Standard bundle drops day-in-date with the game on the 17th of November. The standard will run you $299.99 and the PS4 Pro bundle will be available for $449.99 and is already up for pre-order at Amazon.
