Star Wars Battlefront is an upcoming video game for PS4, Xbox One and PC that will allow gamers to battle it out Star Wars style in some of the most iconic battles in the series. This is the third game in the series (the previous being called simply ‘Star Wars Battlefront’ and ‘Star Wars Battlefront 2’), and is being released in what has been dubbed “the year of Star Wars”, with the cinematic return of the franchise and the upcoming movie Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens, plus a plethora of other projects for upcoming years.
This video game is being developed by EA Dice, a well-known name in the industry already famous for their work in the Battlefield series. It is set to come out on November 17th (right on time for Christmas) and after the fantastic presentation and reception it had in this year’s E3, it already looks like the must-have game for the holiday season.
The game will fulfill the life-long dream of many fans allowing them to relive some of the most iconic battles in the series, as 40 simultaneous players will get split between Imperial and Rebel soldiers through some epic battles in familiar landscapes such as the icy planet Hoth or the deserts of Tatooine. What’s more, this isn’t a shooter but will also feature airships, AT-AT units, and even the possibility of playing as iconic characters such as Luke Skywalker or Darth Vader as power-ups. The game is not about regular deathmatches, but fulfilling team-based objectives to progress monumental battles to keep players engaged at all times so there’s always something to do.
Gamers won’t even have to wait until the game’s official release, for next month EA will be launching a Beta program as to test their online services and the Hoth level before the game’s release as a form of early access. They are set to reveal more information in upcoming weeks, and we’ll be sure to keep you updated. As of now, you can pre-order the game in a regular edition ($59.99 US dollars) or a collectors edition featuring many goodies for $69.99. Consider us tempted.
