Star Wars Battlefront has been in development for quite some time and many feared that the game was eventually not going to be released, despite DICE confirming that everything was proceeding smoothly. Last week’s reveal trailer has finally put all this fear to rest, showing some glimpses of a game that fans of both previous games and Star Wars universe will surely enjoy.
Unfortunately other fears have started creeping in. With many developers holding back content from games only to sell it later separately as DLC, it’s no surprise that many thought Star Wars Battlefront will suffer the same. Thankfully, this does not appear to be the case.
Star Wars Battlefront producer Jesper Nielsen has recently confirmed on Reddit that content for the game is not being held back to sell as DLC at a later point. The game will include more than 8 maps and the total amount of content has nothing to do with future DLC releases. Now that’s a relief!
Mr. Nielsen has also revealed some other new details on the game. Apparently the team is fully committed to releasing a game that expands on the features of past titles. This doesn’t really mean much at the moment but it’s comforting for fans of previous titles to know that Star Wars Battlefront won’t be a radically different game from its predecessors.
Star Wars Battlefront is currently in development by DICE, the team behind the popular Battlefield series. In the new Star Wars game, players will be able to traverse planets such as Endor, Hoth, Tatooine and Sallust, use a variety of vehicles to travel around and use a variety of weapons to defeat enemies. The game will not feature a single player campaign but only an online mode and some co-op missions that can also be played offline.
Star Wars Battlefront will be released this November on consoles and PC in all regions.
