Star Wars Battlefront Will Not Support Cross Platform Multiplayer
DICE has reported that cross-platform play for Star Wars Battlefront will not be supported. The EA Star Wars Twitter page made the following announcement on Star Wars Battlefront:
“If you mean can they play together via cross-platform? Star Wars Battlefront will not support cross-platform functionality.”
While it would certainly have been nice if cross-platform multiplayer was supported for Star Wars Battlefront, this should come to no surprise, as cross-platform play is only possible in very few titles so far, such as Final Fantasy XIV and the upcoming Street Fighter V.
DICE has recently noted that the environment in Star Wars Battlefront will make you feel like you’re actually inside the Star Wars universe and they strive to make players feel immersed in the diverse planets of the game.
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.
