Screenshots + Details
While waiting on Battlefront's showcasing to begin, I wascruising through the web, I have been scrounging for bits of news about anything but unfortunately, I've noticed that Fridays are typically slow news days.
But not on gematsu.com!
I found on the awesome video game-centered website, some amazing and beautiful screenshots from actual gameplay from the upcoming Battlefront 3 game due out on November 17th.
Check it out!
It's stated that you can actually play as characters such as Boba Fett and even Darth Vader himself. Check out what the design director of the game said about it:
How awesome is that?! The part of that quote I like best is "...if you play well." that means, to me, Darth Vader won't be OP to wear players can use and abuse him.
“You can storm in as the Dark Lord himself,” design director Niklas Fegraeus told the AP. “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.”
Seriously! How can you not be excited for this game?! The in-game graphics are beautiful and really highlight how advanced the new generation of gaming consoles really are.
Now, it's not all about graphics for me (although great graphics are appreciated), the game obviously has to be fun, but, from what I hear, we're in no problem there either.
It's said that the developers are remaining pretty coy, but rumor has it that players will be able to transition from ground battle to jumping in ships like X-Wings and TIE Fighters and going right into dog fights while others remain battling it out below!
Check out what the Executive Producer, Patrick Bach, had to say:
“We wanted it to feel authentic to this universe. 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.”
To top everything off, they revealed that two weeks ahead of the release of Star Wars Episode VII - The Force Awakens, players will be able to download a free level set on the planet Jakku, the desert planet that was featured in the amazing trailer reveal yesterday.
The add-on is dubbed “Battle of Jakku” and will explore the moment following Return of the Jedi when the New Republic confronted Imperial holdouts on the Outer Rim enclave, which is unseen even in the new movie.
Here's the official trailer for the new game!
