Star Wars: Battlefront has yet to receive a release date for 2015, but we're sure it'll be hitting the Xbox One, PC and PS4 during the Holiday season of next year. A Star Wars christmas is all that we could ask for (oh wait...we got that film and it was horrendous...)!

There is certainly a great deal that we expect from the Battlefront series, and from a Star Wars NextGen game made by DICE and EA. Each player is going to carry their own preferences and expectations for the title, but there's certainly one thing that we all desire: Space to Ground combat. And I really feel like a little game we've all seen bits of strongly suggests that Star Wars: Battlefront 3 is likely to include the feature.

Star Wars: Battlefront 3 Space to Ground Combat

The idea of space to ground combat has been a desire for Star Wars and Battlefront fans for years. Star Wars: Battlefront 2 gave us space combat, but unfortunately it was only limited to final frontier and we couldn't venture to the planets we fought outside of (the space combat was insanely cool though!).

But with the power of Frostbite and NextGen consoles, we want to see this become a reality. Either be fighting in space and have the option to leave at any time and focus your attention on a ground base on Hoth, or vice versa. All we know is that we want it. And I think that the inclusion of the feature in this Indie game is a big step towards seeing it in Star Wars: Battlefront 3.

If you were watching the Playstation Experience last week, you'll have more than likely been blown away by the presence of No Man's Sky's gameplay trailer. The PS4 exclusive title is absolutely stunning. It's massive multiplayer universe is jam packed full of worlds to see and explore.

The game world is literally, and I actually mean literally, infinite. There are actually an endless amount of planets to discover, meaning that you can find a planet that no one else will ever set foot on! There is no straight competitive element in the game though apparently its an option...what is No Man's Sky?!

In the trailer above you'll see how you can venture into a part of space and find a planet and then simply fly down onto its surface. With this option available from a small indie company, Hello Games, known for their renowned Joe Danger titles, we can assume that massive companies like DICE and also EA as their publishers are more than capable of bringing this element to Star Wars: Battlefront.

No Man's Sky is an endless universe, Star Wars: Battlefront 3 will have set stages for combat. If the former can achieve what we want, then the latter certainly can. I'm now convinced that if DICE don't put space to ground combat in the game, they have failed to achieve Star Wars: Battlefront's full potential!
