Today Electronic Arts announced the release date and teaser trailer for the much anticipated Star Wars Battlefront. Watch for Star WarsBattlefront on November 17, 2015 in North America (and November 19 in Europe). Multiplayer is the emphasis, with huge Star Wars battles with up 40 people (there will be solo missions too, however!).
From EA: “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.”
