The Star Wars movies are some of the most popular cinematic masterpieces in history, amassing a global cult following that loves each new release and everything related to the term “Star Wars”. Naturally, some games were produced that capture the idea of Star Wars and its combat, as well as the interesting story and characters.

Two of these games, Battlefront 1 and 2, are quite popular in the gaming community because of the content they bring to the table. Since the games are so far apart when it comes to their release date, you might be wondering if you should play Battlefront 1 before Battlefront 2. Luckily for you, we have all of the answers right here!

Should I Play Battlefront 1 Before Battlefront 2?

No. While Battlefront 1 does contain some nice content related to Star Wars and the general gameplay is wonderful, most of it is centered around multiplayer. The number of Battlefront players has been dwindling over the years, so if you decide to play it, you might not find many people to enjoy the game with. You should just jump into Battlefront 2 to experience more action.

Should I Play Battlefront 1?

Battlefront 1 (2015) is an action shooter game where the maps are based on the popular planets of the Star Wars movies. Players choose their heroic characters to go into battle with and fight others for victory. Since the main focus of the game is the multiplayer section, you can expect a wide array of game modes to be available to jump into for a high variety of content.

As you play through matches, you will unlock credits that you can use to purchase new characters and upgrade your existing ones. There was a decent amount of community backlash toward EA, stating that they were pushing players to use real-life currency to purchase heroes because of their steep price.

This hate spawned the most downvoted comment in the history of Reddit. Since then, the player base has been steadily declining and you might not find any matches when you start playing. However, it is always possible to find a match or two.

Should I Play Battlefront 2?

Now we get to Battlefront 2, the sequel of the 2015 game. This one improves upon the mistakes of the previous game, including a ton of extra content to enjoy through both singleplayer and multiplayer. The story takes place in three different eras of the Star Wars, so fans of the movies can find a lot of enjoyment in recreating the most important battles of the series.

There are many maps you can play on that are direct takes from the movies, and are brought to stunning detail. When it comes to combat, you have many different classes to choose from, each with its own playstyle and assets to your team. This makes sure that every player and every playstyle is accounted for.

As was the case with Battlefront 1, you can also choose between the iconic heroes of the series to take them to battle and level them up to increase their potency. They are only available in certain modes while others only allow you to select normal soldiers to fight with. Nevertheless, Battlefront 2 is an excellent game and a must-play for any fan of the series or any gamer looking to spread their roots to other games.

How Are They Connected?

The only way these two games are connected is through their shared universe and similar gameplay mechanics, but when it comes to their stories, there is no continuation between them.
