Since E3, when we first saw Star Wars: Battlefront, DICE has kept its silence regarding the new game. It seems with a month into the new year, DICE has realized that it’s time to share some new facts about the title.
While DICE is still keeping the gameplay side of things under wraps, the developer did share details on how the overall experience would be like.
Speaking in an Interview Design Director Niklas Fegraeus said that “the scale of our maps and modes offer a great variety” based on location. Fegraeus said Star Wars: Battlefront will allow users to experience some of “their most memorable Star Wars Battle fantasies.”
We have actually made the decision to specifically tailor certain maps to certain game modes,” Fegraeus said. “And what we get from that is not only incredibly varied scales, but also gameplay that will allow players to live out some of their most memorable Star Wars battle fantasies.
Bringing Star Wars back won’t be an easy task and will present a number of challenges. One of them is “managing expectations” according to Fegraeus.
With that said, DICE do seem to believe in its ability and is looking to bring a Star Wars experience that “excites fans.”
Each of us have our own personal favorites. However, with the talent we have here at DICE, the Frostbite technology at our fingertips, and the fantastic working relationship we have with Lucas, I believe we will deliver a Star Wars experience that excites fans around the world and gives them the chance to play out battles in some of the most iconic locales in the series history.
Star Wars: Battlefront is announced for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. The game is expected to come out in late 2015. For more on Battlefront, stay-tuned.
