Star Wars: Battlefront Box Art

This game was released on November 17, 2015 and is no longer available to pre-order. Any incentives that were offered are listed below.

Star Wars: Battlefront is an upcoming reboot of the original series sharing the same name. Developed by EA’s DICE, it focuses entirely on multiplayer, offering competitive game modes with up to 40 people as well as online and offline co-op missions. Those who prefer the single-player experience need not despair, however, for the new title allows them to complete the aforementioned missions with the help of bots.

Much like its predecessor, the new Battlefront also features several planets like Hoth, Endor, and Tatooine, iconic Star Wars vehicles like speeder bikes, AT-ATs, X-wings, TIE fighters, and more. Certain things like space battles and the Galactic Conquest modes from the old Battlefront games won’t be available at launch, although the developers don’t seem to discount the idea of adding the former some time in the future. As for gameplay, there will be both first- and third-person perspectives, presumably changeable on-the-fly.
