Every vehicle you saw in sixth Star Wars episode will be presented in Star Wars: Battlefront. As we already know, there will be no battles in open space, but possibly we will be able to fly on Z-95 STARFIGHTER, X-WING STARFIGHTER or TIE FIGHTER in the atmosphere of some planets. It was officially announced that players will be granted an ability to control walking tanks like AT-ST WALKER, AT-AT WALKER and others. New previously unseen heavy machinery will be presented closer to a Star Wars Battlefront 3 release date.
Many new players have asked the question – which side players can take? The answer is still the same – Rebels or Empire. Questions and answers with dev team cleared a situation a bit. Numerous legendary Star Wars series characters will become playable now – Darth Vader, Bobba Fett and others. There will be no classes at all! You can choose any equipment and share it with your partner, this decision was surprising but most fans agreed that customizable character is far more interesting to play.
What is still very unclear is the lack of information on Star Wars Battlefront 2015 game modes. Developers are talking about great diversity of game modes, like massive battles with 40 players online, or not actual players, bots can easily replace them. Huge single-player missions are already in game, you can try them in cooperative mode with your friend, or in split-screen mode which is highly unusual these days. Split-screen in Star Wars: Battlefront may not be included in final version of the game, according to dev team. There will be more info on game mods closer to a game release date.
