EA has just made a brand new trailer for Star Wars: Battlefront available to view, allowing us to catch a glimpse at what is sure to be one of the biggest game releases in 2015.
Set to be released on November 17th, 2015, Star Wars: Battlefront will allow players to take part in massive shoot-outs of up to 40 players, all of whom will be split between the Rebel Alliance and the Galactic Empire forces.
We know that some of the locations for these battles will be Hoth, Tatooine and Sullust, all of which will be huge battlefields that are set to reward sharpshooters.
And you can even play as some of the series’ more iconic characters including Boba Fett and Darth Vader.
“You can storm in as the Dark Lord himself,” said the game’s design director Niklas Fegraeus. “You can wield a lightsaber. You can Force choke the rebel scum, which is fun. Basically, you are the boss of the battle. This means that you, as Vader, can lead your team to victory — if you play well.”
And players will even be able to take to the fight in a range of vehicles.
“We wanted it to feel authentic to this universe,” said the game’s executive producer Patrick Bach. “You can get into these vehicles, from speeder bikes to X-wings, TIE fighters, AT-STs, AT-ATs. There’s a wide range of vehicles that we wanted to realize. The difficulty with a game is that they need to be balanced with the troops on the ground.”
Star Wars: Battlefront will be available on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and the PC from November 17th, 2015, but until then you can watch the new trailer above for a quick look at the game.
