Star Wars Battlefront – New Info on Collaboration With Lucasfilm; C-3PO Confirmed
Community Manager Mathew Everett provided some information about the collaboration going on with Lucasfilm for Star Wars Battlefrront, mentioning that the planet Sullust used in the Star Wars comics is inspired by the game.
“The Sullust they use within the comic is based on the Sullust we’re introducing into the Star Wars universe in Star Wars Battlefront. This has been a part of the collaboration we have had with Lucas over the last few years.”
Everett continues that the Magma Troopers is another great result of the collaboration.
“Magma Troopers is another big one.”
There’s a lot of back and forth that goes on before getting to the final result:
“Its a collaboration. Which means, a lot of back and forth to get to the final iteration.”
Everett confirmed that mission maps are unique and specific to that part of the game, separate from multiplayer maps:
“Mission maps are unique to Missions. The map count we revealed includes only Multiplayer maps from the base game (12 maps). We also have the two extra free maps that will come with the Battle of Jakku. The Battle of Jakku maps will arrive starting on December 1st or December 8th depending if you pre-ordered, which gives us 14 maps total before The Force Awakens arrives in theaters. We will reveal the full Mission map count in the near future.”
Everett closes by teasing the E3 2015 showing,
“I think you are going to enjoy the next wave of content and information. E3 can’t come soon enough.
C-3PO’ actor Anthony Daniels mentions on Twitter that he’s working on the game, and EA confirms that the iconic droid will be in the game:
One day it's the hilarious YODA CHRONICLES: the next, the astounding BATTLEFRONT! (Just the ying and yang of being C-3PO at the microphone).

We will be seeing the first public gameplay footage of Star Wars Battlefront at E3 2015, during EA’s press conference on June 15. EA seems pretty confident about E3 2015, stating that they will bring the house down, and given that they will be showing Need for Speed, Star Wars Battlefront, Mass Effect, Mirror’s Edge, a new Plants vs Zombies game, and at least one more Star Wars title, I would have to agree that they could definitely achieve that.
Preorders for Star Wars Battlefront are available for both the Standard and Deluxe versions. As producer Jesper Nielsen stated, gameplay will come in due time, so it would be safe to assume that the development diaries will lead up to that.
Star Wars Battlefront will be released on November 17 2015 for the PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One. We will bring you any new information as soon as it becomes available. Be sure to check out our previous Star Wars Battlefront coverage as well as the latest teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which opens in theaters on December 18.
