The Star Wars Battlefront reveal trailer dropped today, after years of anticipation. EA first revealed Battlefront at the E3 2013 game conference. There was a teaser trailer but it didn’t show much of the game. Today’s reveal trailer shows a lot more.
The graphics shown with the game engine are spectacular. Obviously the game won’t look as good as the trailer since it was just made using the in-game engine, but it should still be graphically impressive. We get to see a battle in the forest, an AT-AT, and enough explosions to make Michael Bay proud.
It was also revealed to IGN that Star Wars Battlefront will not feature a single player story campaign. The game was designed as a multiplayer game first and foremost but there will be co-op. The co-op missions will deviate from the multiplayer campaign and are designed to be replayed to achieve higher scores.
Star Wars Battlefront will be released November 17th, 2015, coinciding with the release of the movie, Star Wars: The Force Awakens. If you preorder Star Wars Battlefront, you will have early access to the Battle of Jakku DLC on December 1. This mission bridges Star Wars: Return of the Jedi to The Force Awakens.
With so much Star Wars news this week, I think Matthew McConaughey’s reaction speaks for all of us.
