E3 2015: Star Wars: Battlefront Gameplay Reveal
During Star Wars Celebration, EA gave us a quick tease of Star Wars: Battlefront. It was more or less a visual representation that the game graphically looks fantastic. And what felt like a crashing halt; we never got to watch actual gameplay. Thankfully EA has delivered a five minute preview of the game in action. And oh boy, does it have game of the year potential written all over it.
EA confirmed some features. Battles can range anywhere from as 8-40 people in a single room. They promise to have authentic Star Wars characters, including Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker, along with various other famous SW stars, which you’ll easily recognize in the video above.
Some characters were even include special abilities. For instance, if you unlock Darth Vader during the battle playing as the Empire, he has the ability to use the Force and choke out his enemies, as evident in the video. Although I assume In order to play as him, you’ll have to unlock various goals throughout the battle.
The video also example of how you’ll be able to control X-Wings, AT-AT’s and other various Star Wars vehicles, which truly make it feel like a real Star Wars battle unfolding.
Since EA first announced Star Wars battlefront was coming over a year ago, I have been waiting in anticipation to finally see gameplay. I had confidence the Dice would be able to develop an authentic Star Wars title, and today they have confirmed my thoughts. This has the potential to be one of EA’s biggest titles they’ve ever released. And I’m excited that they’re not half-assing it, like many assumed they would.
