New Details For Star Wars: Battlefront
The trailer for Star Wars: Battlefront is now available, and with it a slew of details about the upcoming DICE game. The trailer features in-engine footage of soldiers for the Rebel Alliance battling Imperial Stormtroopers on Endor (or the forest moon of Endor, if you're a big fan of Star Wars), using vehicles, blasters, and a new shield power-up. Then we see Hoth, Tatooine, and the lesser known, Sullust, a planet with a toxic atmosphere and caves where the Sullustian species thrive. All four of these planets will be playable maps.
According to Niklas Fegraeus, Design Director of Star Wars Battlefront, the game will feature a single player mode called 'missions'. Though we don't know much about this game mode, it will have offline single player, offline split-screen co-op (unavailable on PC), and online co-op. Battlefront will also allow you to switch between first-person and third-person views at anytime. Lastly, despite the lack of space battles, the skies of each map will have dogfights with TIE fighters, X-Wings, and more.
More news is expected to appear from DICE as the year goes on, so stay with us for updates.
