Star Wars: Battlefront 2's campaign lasts roughly five to seven hours

In a recent interview between Press Start and Motive's studio producer David Robillard, more details about the story and its length were revealed. Motive Studios wanted to tell the story from an Imperial perspective because it hasn't been done on a personal level like this before. In order to offer a concise and captivating experience, they decided that a five-hour to seven-hour game was the right way forward. Robillard stated the following.

We thought that around 5-7, maybe 8 hours, is probably a good amount of time… we wanted to stay very driven towards the Star Wars fantasy that the players are going to experience and not have it be drawn out.

During the campaign you rise as a new Star Wars hero named Iden Verso. She's an elite Imperial special forces soldier who goes on a journey of discovery in an emotional and gripping single-player story spanning thirty years. While gamers prefer lengthy campaigns, they do have a tendency to fall flat towards the end. Here's hoping it feels like a substantial experience because many "AAA" games in the past with such short campaigns haven't.

Halo 5 suffered from a similar problem because the campaign could be completed in a night. 343 Industries touted it as a lengthy experience but it was definitely not that if you played on Normal. The length also made the game feel short and incomplete. Hopefully these problems won't be part of Star Wars: Battlefront 2 even though the campaign is rather small. Motive Studios has yet to address this but gamers will find out soon enough because the game's November launch is fast approaching.

In Star Wars: Battlefront 2, you embark on an endless action experience in the acclaimed universe. Rush through waves of enemies on Starkiller Base with the power of a lightsaber in your hands. Storm through the jungle canopy of a hidden Rebel base with your fellow troopers dispensing firepower from an AT-ST. Line up your X-wing squadron for an attack on a titanic First Order Star Destroyer. The multiplayer offers countless possibilities to make it your own no matter which mode you prefer.

Iconic characters like Darth Maul, Han Solo and Kylo Ren make an appearance in this game and there are plenty of other surprises. Star Wars: Battlefront 2 launches on November 17, 2017 on Xbox One, Windows PC and PlayStation 4. Be sure to check out the game if you're interested at retailers.
