Battlefront was developed by EA DICE who are also responsible for the very popular first person shooter series Battlefield , using the Frostbite 3 engine, so gamers should be set for insane graphics (if the pre-alpha footage is anything to go by) and seamless gameplay known of the series. There have been confirmed locations from the Star Wars™ movies set to appear as maps including Endor, Hoth, Tatooine & unexplored planet Sullust. This is alongside the first confirmed DLC for the game named Battle Of Jakku which has a release date of December 8th 2015. News has appeared that the game will lack a single player mode but despite this Battlefront aims to maintain a story through the inclusion of some of its most well-known characters including Darth Vader , Luke Sky Walker, Boba Fett and Han Solo. Multiplayer campaigns will host up to 40 players or as little as 8 as the developers wish to focus the gameplay action to one area at a time. Star Wars™ Battlefront is a reboot to the original rather than a sequel so will maintain many original features of the first instalment. It is set to focus more on multiplayer gameplay than the first Battlefront in an attempt to increase cooperative play. The news of planet Jakku’s inclusion was welcome to fans as it will bring brand new terrain and combat mission possibilities to Battlefront. Check out the trailers below for a glimpse into the Battlefront universe!
