Star Wars: Battlefront is one of the most anticipated games of 2015. The recent Star Wars humble Bundle and its major success will inform you of just how much fans out there love the Star Wars universe on their consoles and PCs. [Star Wars: Battlefront](tag:2684021) will hopefully be no exception on its release date for the Xbox One, PS4 and PC during the Holiday Season of 2015.

As we're well aware, Disney made sure to split the Star Wars franchise into canonical and non-canonical instalments. Star Wars: Battlefront is joining the canon though will apparently not be tied to the upcoming [Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens](movie:711158) . But who's to say that it won't appear in interesting little ways through easter eggs and such?

Star Wars: Battlefront & 3 Things From Star Wars Episode 7: The Force Awakens

Our little droid friend that somehow managed to get us all excited in The Force Awakens trailer could be showing up in Battlefront. I could definitely see a Tatooine level seeing this little guy running around. But the BB-8 more represents the form of easter eggs that DICE and EA could incorporate into their game!

DICE have acquired access to the Skywalker studios and scanned models from the actual sets and models into the game. Therefore it's quite likely that they'll be able to hint at the presence of certain elements from the new trilogy in the upcoming Star Wars: Battlefront game.

For instance, you can check out a pretty insane easter egg in Battlefield: Hardline in terms of its reload animations. There's one hilarious (and kinda creepy) example where a hand comes into the screen and hands you your new magazine. So DICE are in for a good laugh and randomly generating certain easter eggs.

Therefore, could we get the rare opportunity of being able to play as John Boyega's character in a stormtrooper outfit when we pick a stormtrooper class? I can definitely see these kind of things popping up and I'm dying to find out what DICE will have in store!

The third easter egg I can definitely imagine is the presence of the new lightsaber from The Force Awakens. The new blade has already become a meme sensation, with hilarious videos and fan versions being created all over the world. Due to the fact that we've seen this element of the new film over a year before its release, we can assume that it'd be safe for Battlefront to feature it with the presence of its own hero system.

It most definitely won't uncover any of the plot, but I'm sure we'll see a lot of Star Wars Episode 7: The Force Awakens in Star Wars: Battlefront on its release date for the Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
