This epic title will take place amid the conflicts of the original film trilogy will become available for download or purchase November 17, 2015. Star Wars "Battlefront" multiplayer gameplay will play out in a very similar vein to the Battlefield series. Battle with up to 40 players as part of the Rebel Alliance or Galactic Empire force.
"We wanted it to feel authentic to this universe," said "Battlefront" executive producer Patrick Bach. "You can get into these vehicles, from speeder bikes to X-wings, TIE fighters, AT-STs, AT-ATs. There's a wide range of vehicles that we wanted to realize. The difficulty with a game is that they need to be balanced with the troops on the ground." - Dice
As part of an early demonstration between trusted sources; In one of the games multiplayer modes, a team of rebels equipped with Jet Pack were shown tearing through the overgrown pathways of an Endor forest while Stormtroopers chased them on foot, on speeders AND with walkers.
The gameplay will take part in some new and some iconic locations. Gameplay demonstrations took the audience to the snowy Hoth, sandy Tatooine and gooey Sullust, a lava-spewing planet referenced in 1983's "Return of the Jedi," as well as many "Star Wars" games and novels, but rarely ever seen.
The gameplay will, like Battlefield, have a class type system, snipe, blast or assault your way to the emperor, the choice is yours. In addition to gunplay players, you will have certain survival capabilities, such as countering melee attacks, shooting with their sidearm while repelling down from a height or swimming, deflect incoming projectiles with a light saber type ability, and even the use of a 'Force' type perk to sustain, maintain or regain health.
"You can storm in as the Dark Lord himself," said "Battlefront" design director Niklas Fegraeus. "You can wield a lightsaber. You can Force choke the rebel scum, which is fun. Basically, you are the boss of the battle. This means that you, as Vader, can lead your team to victory — if you play well." - Dice
Immerse yourself in the glorious chaos of all out galactic war. Huge planetary based maps, iconic vehicles, weapons and 'levolution' destruction allowing you to create your own path and play to your own strengths.
"You never get to see it in the new movie, so it was this brilliant opportunity to recreate the Battle of Jakku, which you only see the remnants of in the movie," said Bach. "In the game, you actually get to play the Battle of Jakku. It's the same place from the new movie but 30 years earlier."-- Dice
