Star Wars Battlefront: Darth Vader Is a Force to be Reckoned With in Battle

Darth Vader in Star Wars Battlefront is someone to be feared during battle. Details on his abilities shared by EA's Senior Producer Jamie Keen.

Darth Vader is one of the playable characters in Star Wars Battlefront. He possess unique abilities that can be used to dominate the battlefield. Vader uses a heavy lightsaber, the iconic Force Choke and other powers to take down the enemy.

Senior Producer Jamie Keen has assured fans that there will be plenty of depth in gameplay when you take on the role of Darth Vader. Like the saying goes, practice makes you perfect, so you’ll need a little bit of practice with Vader in order to learn to prioritize threats.

Players can handle multiple enemies at once, if they learn to chain different Vader abilities together. For instance, Vader’s Saber Throw move (where the weapon is thrown towards a group of enemies) can be combined with the Force Choke.

It’s great for crowd control. The Saber Throw’s area of effect has been fine-tuned during development to make sure it’s as powerful as it should be.

Vader is intimidating! What should you do if you come face to face with him? Running for your life is an option but that won’t win you the game.

If you face off with a Villain like Darth Vader one-on-one, you’re basically done. So the best strategy is to get help from your teammates and attack together. Also, the melee Heroes and Villains are particularly vulnerable from behind, so try to avoid frontal attacks.

Star Wars Battlefront will release in November 17 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
