The next comprises spoilers for Star Wars: Battlefront 2, and doable The Final Jedi.
The latest Star Wars online game is making headlines for a lot of unlucky causes, however inside the sport itself is perhaps the reply to a query followers have been asking for nearly two years. Star Wars Battlefront 2 has a single participant story which follows Imperial soldier Iden Versio throughout occasions that happen between The Return of the Jedi and The Pressure Awakens. By the tip of the story’s marketing campaign followers should surprise if the character they have been following is perhaps Rey’s mom.
Over the course of Star Wars Battlefront 2 Iden Versio and her fellow squadmate Del Meeko defect from the Empire to the Rebel, nonetheless, additionally they fall in love, and have a daughter. The destiny of Iden Versio and the daughter is left ambiguous within the sport, however as the sport has a father or mother with an ambiguous daughter, and Star Wars: The Pressure Awakens provides us a younger lady with ambiguous dad and mom, it is easy sufficient for some to attract a line between the 2, as Screen Rant has completed.
Is it doable that Iden Versio is Rey’s mom? Certain. There’s nothing throughout the sport or The Force Awakens which would appear to explicitly low cost the likelihood. Nonetheless, that being mentioned, there’s additionally no actual proof that that is true both. The truth that we all know nothing of Rey’s parentage opens up quite a few prospects of which this may very well be one. Neither Iden Versio nor Del Meeko present any explicit ability with the Pressure all through the sport, and it could appear unlikely that two non-Pressure customers would give start to any individual as highly effective as we all know Rey to be. What’s more likely is that the sport’s builders left this plot thread free particularly to create such hypothesis.
Whereas the occasions of the Star Wars Battlefront 2 single participant sport are alleged to be official canon, it looks as if an odd place for this element to be revealed. Even when the identification of Rey’s dad and mom is not formally confirmed till Star Wars: The Final Jedi is launched, if it seems that her dad and mom are two folks that solely a fraction of the viewers is accustomed to, the second is not going to have the identical weight it in any other case might, and plenty of followers will most likely be pissed off that they’d should play a sport to get the entire story.
It’s going to even be unlucky contemplating what a low opinion many presently have of Star Wars Battlefront 2, making the sport one thing of a pariah. The sport’s use of random loot boxes is being referred to as playing by some, main at the least one U.S. state, and a number of nations, to research the apply, and this sport particularly, for doubtlessly selling playing to kids.
There’s some further single-player content material anticipated as downloadable content material for Star Wars Battlefront 2. Maybe when that arrives we’ll get this query answered.
