Classic Star Wars: Battlefront 2 multiplayer strikes back with crossplay
The Force was strong with 2005’s Star Wars: Battlefront II, which is (confusingly) not to be confused with 2017’s Star Wars Battlefront II. A colon can make all the difference to a marketing department. Anyway, the original Battlefront II was a hit, featuring a single-player campaign, battles in iconic settings, space dogfights, and hero characters. In a recent update, it’s had its multiplayer support returned to it with Steam and GOG crossplay as well.
The announcement came via GOG.com, who will be hosting the multiplayer through GOG Galaxy. Crossplay will be enabled between Steam and GOG users, bringing the game’s 64 player battles back to our screens. Obviously, this support does not extend to the PS2, PSP, and Xbox versions. I don’t even know why I had to clarify that, but some people just need to be told.
If you feel like returning to the game, Star Wars: Battlefront II is on sale at GOG.com for $3.99 (R55 locally), and going for R109 on Steam.
