"Single player epic battles against AI opponents offline. Take control over a majority of Command Posts to gain reinforcements and defeat the enemy team."
— In-game Description

Instant Action is an offline singleplayer game mode in DICE's Star Wars Battlefront II that features large-scale battles with AI troopers, reinforcements, and heroes. It is a recreation of the original Instant Action from Pandemic Studios' Star Wars: Battlefront series. Instant Action currently only supports the Clone Wars era,[1] but will expand to the First Order–Resistance war in January 2020.[2]

Instant Action arrived to Battlefront II on September 25, 2019 as part of the Cooperation Update.[3] Instant Action will also support AI vehicles in a future update.[4]

Overview Edit

In Instant Action, the player fights alongside a team of AI bots against another team of AI bots. The AI can spawn as troopers, reinforcements, and heroes and are able to use their unique abilities.[5] Both teams fight for majority control over five Command Posts scattered across planetary battlegrounds. Command Posts controlled by the the player's team can be spawned on. The team that controls a majority of the Command Posts will earn score and the first team to reach a score of 100% wins. 

Players on PC are able to select up to 32 AI for each side, though this feature is not currently available for console players. Similar to Arcade, players are able to customize some parameters for Instant Action. Battle Point costs for a lot of units are also lower than they are for Capital Supremacy. Instant Action currently does not support local split screen due to technical limitations.[6]

Post-launch, DICE is looking into adding more customization parameters for Instant Action, including building a new system that gives AI planet appropriate Appearances.[7]

Maps Edit

Instant Action can be played on the following maps:

An update in January 2020 will add First Order–Resistance war maps to Instant Action, including:

Additionally, at a later time, more maps set during the First Order–Resistance war are expected,[8] including:

Trivia Edit

  • Unlike the Instant Action in Pandemic's series, where players could choose to play from multiple game modes, DICE's version of Instant Action is itself a game mode; in other words, it only allows players to play that one game mode.
  • Instant Action is essentially the ground phase of the multiplayer game mode Capital Supremacy, slightly reworked, and uses the same maps as Capital Supremacy.
  • Although it was announced that Instant Action would include AI-controlled vehicles at launch, EA DICE had to delay this feature for a future update.
