Update (8/3 3:00pm): Star Wars has also released another quick teaser of upcoming gameplay modes, this time highlighting Fighter Squadron.
Star Wars Battlefront is coming this fall and we couldn’t be more excited. Today, EA lifted the veil on a new gameplay mode called Blast. This Team Deathmatch style option pits Rebel vs Imperial in 10 person teams. It’s all out battle until one team reaches 100 kills or whomever has the most at the end of ten minutes. There will be weapons and other tools like turrets and Drone scanners hiding throughout the map to pick up and use during battle.
Game designer Dennis Brännvall promises intense action on custom made levels for Blast. These layouts will differ from traditional maps on multiplayer and co-op. He explains further:
“One battle you’ll be fighting within interior levels on Endor or Sullust. In the next battle, you might find yourselves among Tatooine’s dusty canyons, or inside the undeniably cool Ice Caves on Hoth. My favorite is the verticality of Tatooine, fighting by the Sandcrawler.”
Star Wars Battlefront is set to launch on November 17th. Amazon is currently offering a pre-order discount to Prime members, dropping the final price down to $55, while the Deluxe version can be had for $63. Gamers Club Unlocked Members at Best Buy can save 20% on pre-orders knocking the total to $48 plus a $10 gift card.
