Star Wars Battlefront Gets 10 Minutes of New Gameplay Footage
YouTube user ‘Jake McNeill’ has released a video, showcasing 10 minutes of gameplay footage from Star Wars Battlefront’s Walker Assault mode. The Assault Mode was demonstrated at E3 2015 last June, and will be available in the beta phase of Star Wars Battlefront, which will begin in October. Players layers will also be able to test two new modes, Survival Mission and Drop Zone. You can view a few details on Drop Zone further down.
Star Wars Battlefront's Drop Zone Mode centers on capturing drop pods falling on the planet surfaces
Drop Zone centers on drop pods falling on the planet surfaces, in 8-versus-8 matches, where Rebel and Empire teams fight to capture and control these pods, in similar fashion to “King of the Hill”. Locating a pod triggers a short claim process, and a team wins either after capturing five pods, or the majority after the 10-minute match is up.
Drop Zone requires quick thinking, encouraging players to always be on their feet. Captured pods need to be defended, although static players staying close to their pod are always vulnerable to be hit by explosives or Orbital Strikes.
“This goes hand in hand with our design philosophy behind many of the game modes in Star Wars Battlefront,” Lead Level Designer Dennis Brännvall explains. “We’re promoting the idea of a fast, action-packed game where you need to be mobile and think on your feet. Camping doesn't really pay off.”
Star Wars Battlefront will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on November 19, 2015. We will bring you any new information on Star Wars Battlefront as soon as it becomes available.
