maxresdefault (10)

That’s right! The beta for Star Wars: Battlefront will be available (both online and offline) to everyone courtesy of EA and DICE. No official date for the beta, but it is confirmed for an early October release.

In the offline mode, players will be able to explore Tatooine by alone or through the means of split-screen co-op by way of Survival Mission mode. Walker Assault on Hoth and Drop Zone on Sullust are also modes available in the beta.

It’s also worth noting that DICE is also working on a free Battle of Jakku DLC pack, which is scheduled to come out in early December. Again, there’s no concrete date for the beta release but the November 17 launch date will see to it that the beta makes its way sooner rather than later.

Fighter Squadron, Star Wars Battlefront’s New Mode Revealed!

A-Wings vs Tie FightersIt’s been awhile since we had a true and authentic flight simulator Star Wars game but at this past GamesCom 2015 in Germany last week, Electronic Arts revealed a new mode for Star Wars Battlefront called Fighter Squadron.

You remember the Rogue Squadron series? For those who don’t, the series lets you take the mantle of infamous ships such as the T-65 X-Wing to the X1 Tie Advanced.You fly these ships as you complete objectives against the Empire or Rebel Alliance, and compete in dogfights in space or various planets.

For Fighter Squadron mode, DICE is bringing that same feeling back from the past Rogue Squadron games but with up to 20 in a lobby for intense ship to ship battles. During matches, power-ups and upgrades come into play to give you advanced proton torpedoes or giving you the ability to pilot the Millennium Falcon!

Star Wars: Battlefront hits Playstation 4, XBOX One, and PC on November 17th, 2015.

Five Minutes of Star Wars: Battlefront Gives Us Luke Skywalker vs. Darth Vader

37729-star-wars-battlefront-video-del-gameplay-e3-2015_jpg_1280x720_crop_upscale_q85The 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.
star-wars-battlefront-trailer-gameplay-playstation-4-e3-2015The 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.

Looks like the developers over at DICE spared no expense when it came to the production of the game. Such a long-awaited game should be met with positive reactions if the trailer is any indication of the game’s actual quality. Oh, and did I mention that in addition to the trailer the release date has been leaked!
