EA have revealed the latest multiplayer mode for Star Wars Battlefront in the form of Supremacy. This mode will include the use of troops, vehicles, and “Heroes and Villains” to win dominance over the game map.
Supremacy centres on the players gaining control over five points that are scattered around the map. The objective is to gain control over most of them in the 10-minute time limit. Each team will start with control over two of these points with the focus at the start on gaining the fifth point. After this is done, the rest will have to be claimed in a set order.
Lead Level Designer Dennis Brännvall had this to say on the new mode:
“When you spawn into Supremacy, you don’t have to move far to see a lot of friends – and enemies. You’re thrown into a massive frontline, where your screen is filled with adversaries: infantry, Heroes, Walkers, and starfighters. You can prepare for very heavy and focused Star Wars action”
On using Heroes and Villains during battle:
“Using a character like Darth Vader to secure control points is great, as he can take increased damage before going down. Luke Skywalker and Boba Fett are great for moving swiftly between attacking and defensive positions, and giving you the edge against opponents in battle”
Supremacy maps will also be some of the biggest in the game, and interestingly Brännvall who also works on Battlefield, compared it to the Conquest mode from that game:
“Supremacy is a game mode that will excite fans of the Conquest mode from Battlefield. That said, we’ve made several tweaks to improve the formula. You will always spawn close to the action when you enter Supremacy, so you’ll never feel isolated from the fight. By focusing on one key point at a time, players not playing the objective and camping on a hill somewhere will be a rare sight.”
