Star Wars Battlefront Multiplayer – How Exactly the Walker Assault Mode Plays Out
In case you are still unacquainted with the Walker Assault mode in the upcoming Star Wars Battlefront Multiplayer, here is everything you need to know about it.
Star Wars Battlefront is shaping up to be quite exciting with the game’s Level Artist claiming that the replay value of the game’s singleplayer mode is high, however, it’s the game Multiplayer Mode that is looking more promising.
In case some of you are still unfamiliar with the Walker Assault mode, the game mode basically revolves around a couple of phases which keep on repeating throughout the entire match. The rebels are tasked to take out uplinks in order to summon the Y-Wings with the Walkers arriving in key locations and Y-Wings attacking the Walkers until either the Walkers reach the Shield Generator or the Rebels take out all the Walkers.
According to BattlefrontUpdates, each phase kicks off with a couple of uplinks in a single location which Rebels have to secure followed by locking in the uplinks in order to acquire Y-Wings – the whole process takes around 45 seconds. After the Walkers join in the fray, a 2-minute timer starts running and uplinks start expiring. Once this is done, Y-Wing fighters arrive and strike the Walkers. Do note that for securing every uplink, Rebels acquire an additional Y-Wing.
After the Y-Wings leave, the Rebels receive additional 10-second in order to eliminate the Walkers and this time is increased with more Y-Wings. Here is the official description of the game mode:
Walker Assault lets you fight in epic 40-player battles as a Rebel to destroy the Empire’s onslaught of AT-AT’s by calling in Y-Wing bombers, or as an Imperial to protect your Walkers and utilize its mighty weaponry to crush the Rebel base.
Star Wars Battlefront is scheduled to arrive on Nov. 17, 2015 on PC, Playstation 4, and Xbox One. We saw the PS4 version running during EA’s E3 2015 Press Conference which had some obvious frame-rate drops. The PC version, on the other hand, is looking promising with a number of advanced graphics settings and butter-smooth gameplay experience – at least during the closed alpha.
