Star Wars Battlefront is the forthcoming videogame where you get to immerse yourself in your Star Wars battle fantasies, and with not long to go before it’s unleashed, the the gameplay launch trailer has been released and it’s mind-blowing!
Feeling the ominous thud of an AT-AT stomping down on the frozen tundra of Hoth. Rebel forces firing blasters as Imperial speeder bikes zip through the lush forests of Endor. Intense dogfights between squadrons of X-wings and TIE fighters filling the skies. Immerse yourself in the epic Star WarsTM battles you’ve always dreamed of and create new heroic moments of your own in Star Wars Battlefront.
Fight for the Rebellion or Empire in a wide variety of multiplayer matches for up to 40 players, or in exciting challenges inspired by the films available solo, split-screen or through online co-op. Star Wars Battlefront combines this epic action on a galactic scale with stunning visual recreations of some of the most iconic planets, weapons, characters, and vehicles in the Star Wars universe and the original sound effects from the films, to give Star Wars fans the ultimate, authentic and immersive interactive experience they’ve been looking for.
Star Wars Battlefront has been brought forward a day to November 19th on PC, PS4 and Xbox One, just four weeks ahead of the cinema release for Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens. I was gutted that I couldn’t get midnight screening tickets for that (since the Odeon’s website kept crashing) but while I got the mid-morning viewing, I managed to get my favourite seat at the Odeon Printworks IMAX (J21, if you must know – right at the back and in the middle), but that was only because someone else had reserved them and clearly been booted out before they could complete the sale! So, it works both ways.
