4 Reasons Not to Pre-Order Star Wars Battlefront 2 & 3 Reasons You Should

While some of you might want to order Star Wars Battlefront 2 right now, many others are better off waiting a few more days or maybe even a few more weeks.

EA and DICE have revealed most of the key Star Wars Battlefront 2 details ahead of the game’s release. We now have information about the game’s various release dates, the single-player campaign, its robust multiplayer experience, and the game’s different editions. We also have information about the first free DLC expansion.

It’s shaping up to be one of the year’s hottest releases and the release date is now just a few short days away.

The global Star Wars Battlefront 2 release date for Xbox One, PS4 and PC is November 17th. However, if you pre-order a copy of the game, or signup for EA Access, you can play the game right now.

EA DICE and its retail partners are offering some incentives to those that pre-order Star Wars Battlefront 2 ahead of its November release date.

And while it might be tempting to put in a Star Wars Battlefront pre-order right now or in the near future, some of you might be better off taking a rain check. If you’re struggling with this decision, we’re here to help you make a decision before the game arrives.

Our Star Wars Battlefront 2 pre-order guide below takes you through the best reasons to pre-order and the best reasons to wait it out.

Pre-Order If You Want to Play ASAP

Pre-Order If You Want to Play ASAP

If you want to play Star Wars Battlefront 2 the second it's released you'll need to pre-order a very specific version of the game. 

If you pre-order the digital version of Star Wars Battlefront 2 you'll be able to download the right when it unlocks at Midnight.

If you pre-order a physical copy of the game, you might not be able to play until your delivery driver shows up hours after the servers start to populate with thousands of gamers. 

We haven't seen any stores (besides 24-hour Walmart locations) commit to staying open late to accommodate those who want to pickup their game on release day.

If you want to be at the very tip of the sword, you'll want to put in an early order for the digital version of Star Wars Battlefront 2.

    Did they get rid of all the cheating going on in the first game? If not, what’s the point of getting this one? Players able to kill in one shot with crap weapons from across the battlefield, jet packs that are always charged, shooting someone in the FACE repeatedly and they don’t die, turn and shoot you once and you’re dead. It goes on and on and on and yeah you can report people but they never seem to be banned and an entire game of cheaters is back the next day. Do you have control of your damned game this time or not??

    Preordering is why EA keeps beating up your favourite titles. If you’d stop that stupidity they’d actually pay more attention to what they’re doing.

    You’ve already let them know that all they need to do for your money is release a fantastically early announcement coupled with a snazzy teaser trailer and everyone will make them richer.

    Invite them to work for their money for a change.
