Take to the skies in Star Wars Battlefront’s Fighter Squadron
Straight from their press briefing at gamescom, EA and DICE have revealed a brand-new game mode for their upcoming title Star Wars Battlefront called “Fighter Squadron,” a 20-player dog fight featuring the iconic starships from “Star Wars” including the X-Wing, A-Wing, Tie Fighter, Tie Interceptor, and more! In addition, the developers confirmed that the planet Sullust, which houses the Empire’s various ships, will be a playable map in the new game. Check it out in the player below!
Star Wars Battlefront will allow fans to live out a wide range of heroic moments and intense battle fantasies of their own – firing blasters, riding speeder bikes and snow speeders, commanding AT-ATs and piloting TIE fighters and the Millennium Falcon. These battles will take place on some of the most iconic planets in the Star Wars universe, including Endor, Hoth, Tatooine and the previously unexplored planet, Sullust. Gamers will be able to play as some of the most memorable characters in the original trilogy such as Darth Vader and Boba Fett. Star Wars Battlefront will feature a wide range of modes tailored for different types of battles, from larger 40-person competitive multiplayer to crafted missions that are played solo, with a friend via split-screen offline or co-operatively online.
Fans who pre-order Star Wars Battlefront will be among the first players to experience the Battle of Jakku, the pivotal moment when the New Republic confronted key Imperial holdouts on a remote desert planet on the Outer Rim. Taking place in the aftermath of the Rebel victory in the Battle of Endor, players will experience the events that created the massive, battle-scarred landscape of Jakku shown in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Players who pre-order Star Wars Battlefront can fight the battle one-week early starting on December 1, 2015. All other players will get access to this free content on December 8, 2015.
Star Wars Battlefront will be available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on November 17. You can pre-order your copy here.
