Star Wars: Battlefront Dev: “Missing iron sights on certain weapons will have no effect on ADS gameplay”,”It’s just a visual thing”


Community Manager Mathew Everett confirmed via Reddit that a few vehicles that will be playable in the game:

6.) Can you name a vehicle that can be piloted other than the AT-ST? Snow speeders, Speeder bike and more.
7.) Can you name a ship that can be piloted other than X-Wings and Tie-Fighters? Millennium Falcon and more.

Everett was asked how starships handle compared to Battlefield games, and he replied:

A lot easier to fly. Very Padawan friendly. We will go into more details on what makes them Padawan friendly and Jedi master-able (is that even a word?).

Everett then explained that Battlefront gameplay will be coming in the near future:

Near future. But keep an eye on our channels for announcements.

Director Niklas Fegraeus also clarified that certain weapons missing iron sights in Battlefront will have no effect on ADS gameplay, it's just a visual thing.

Star Wars Battlefront will launch with 12 multiplayer maps, each of them using different areas of the included planets

“The overall look and feel for Sullust is very much Imperial and under construction, playing in locations within the planet such as a lava theme, sulfur theme, Death Star-inspired theme, and lastly a mine theme,"

Of the 12 multiplayer maps in Star Wars Battlefront (there are even more locations when you include the Star Wars Battlefront Missions), some feel immediately familiar — such as the lush forests of Endor or the tundra of Hoth that allow you to re-live your favorite moments from the films. Some of the maps support our epic modes like Walker Assault, while others are tailored to more intimate, close quarters combat. Our goal is to bring a variety of battle fantasies to life, with map design catering to the modes that will play out on those maps. Above all, we want you to create new memories of your own in new places you've never seen before.

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.
