Multiplayer suddenly returns to Pandemic's old Star Wars Battlefront 2

2005’s Star Wars Battlefront II Introduces Crossplay

It's worth noting that this will be one of the biggest multiplayer betas EA has ever done.

Following the closure of GameSpy in 2013, a number of classic games lost their online multiplayer capabilities with one of those games being Star Wars: Battlefront 2. Even better there's now added crossplay support between GOG Galaxy and Steam. Those servers were run by GameSpy up until its shut down back until 2014, and in the time since then, those who wanted to play Battlefront 2 online had to rely on GameRanger. There is now cross-play support with Battlefront II on GOG and Steam, so that should ideally help players find matches faster. GOG's technical staff is now investigating the problem, including an issue where the game appears to be freezing when players try to jump into multiplayer.

Battlefront 2's online relaunch doesn't seem to be going entirely smoothly for everyone, though. Players who wanted to really play the game's multiplayer modes often found ways to access unofficial servers, but now anyone can play online without mods, granted GOG solves the technical issues soon.

It's also a bit darkly humorous that Disney chose to resurrect this game ahead of EA's Battlefront II, seeing as it's given rise to a renewed chorus of chants about how much more people liked the first two Battlefront games than EA and DICE's reboot.

GOG was able to grab the source code for the original game and worked with Disney to bring the multiplayer servers back to life.

Disney has interesting timing with this Battlefront 2 revival, though.
