The first real look at Star Wars: Battlefront gave us everything we were waiting for. Before the five minutes of footage here, LucasArts gave us seven minutes of great gameplay during the Star Wars Celebration a while back. This time around, the gameplay footage gives us a better understanding of how the game looks in both third and first-person.
Check out the actual footage below.
At this years E3, EA gave us a very old feel when they started the footage off on Hoth in the middle of a huge battle between the Rebel Alliance and the Imperial Soldiers. Rockets and rifle fire fill the air as the Alliance defend the hangar against the Imperial Soldiers while trying to defend and activate control points.
The Empire’s AT-AT are automated in terms of their ability to move and navigate, but still can deal major damage. The airstrikes come in from the Imperial Soldiers, but the Rebel Alliance find a way to defend against it using a bubble shield.
The game switches to none other than Luke Skywalker as you now can play as a Jedi. Familiar jedi moves such as force push and force dash are used to take down several enemies at once… and yes you do get to use the lightsaber. It’s all fun and games until Darth Vader enters the battlefield and as soon as Luke and Vader clash, the footage is over.
Star Wars: Battlefront will be available for Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
