Day one of the Star Wars Celebration opened with the new Star Wars Force Awakens teaser trailer and day two opens with the long anticipated show trailer of Star Wars Battlefront. Though no real gameplay was shown the reveal trailer is made up of the in-game engine teased. Things that were talked about during the Star Wars Celebration included a DICE panel on the Battle of Jakku, a free DLC to all who buy Star Wars Battlefront set to come out December 8, 2015. Those who pre-order will also apparently get a full week of early access to that content starting December 1, 2015.
The actual game itself releases November 17, 2015 for PC / PS4 / Xbox ONE but will be available early for Xbox ONE users who participate in the “EA Access” subscription service. So far we know that the base game takes place on Sullust, Endor, Hoth, as well as Tatooine with playable characters including the iconic Darth Vader and Boba Fett.
Also talked about during the panel was the confirmation of switching from first person to third person perspectives in game like in previous Battlefront installments. The revelation that the game will not have a single player story / campaign but instead missions for co-op / online / solo play similar to the original title. Some are upset about this although it does follow the traditions of the first Battlefront game. There will be no space battle however, and that is a real shame since the cancelled version LucasArts had developed seemed to be promising in terms of aerial gameplay. We hope that this June at E3 2015 we may have more to see and talk of in regard to Star Wars Battlefront’s engine and gameplay, but for now details are a bit sparse.
