Star Wars Battlefront pre-load mini-game lets you play as Darth Vader
One of the worst problems gamers face is waiting for their new game to download 100% before being able to play. The minutes, and hours can seem like days when you can't wait to get hands on. With Star Wars Battlefront -- now available on Xbox One through EA Access -- after downloading 20% of the game's files you are able to play a special Darth Vader-themed mini-game.
The devilish little mini-game allows you to play as Darth Vader himself. Your job is plain and simple. Kill the Rebel Scum. This mission, set in a Tatooine hangar, features waves of Rebel enemies coming at you from every direction. You can use any of Vader's various abilities, such as, Force choke, lightsaber-throw, heavy attack, etc to keep the enemies back. You have a small squad of Imperial soldiers to assist you in this murderous venture.
Battlefront is available now if you are part of EA's early access program on Xbox One, otherwise, it releases November 17th for Xbox One (No EA access), PS4, and the PC.
