Update: More sites are going live with everything they have now. We’ve added a gallery of all the screenshots above. Expect a trailer later.
Original: Star Wars: Battlefront is set to have a massive gameplay reveal later today. The panel officially begins at 10:30am Pacific, but one of the sites with information ahead of the panel has spilled the beans.
AP offers a few quotes and quick facts about some of what Star Wars: Battlefront will offer. Here’s the gist.
Star Wars: Battlefront will offer 40 player combat. That’s combat between the Rebels and Empire. Apparently the demo featured Rebels with jetpacks flying through Endor while Stormtroopers attacked “on foot, on speeders and within walkers, including a hulking AT-AT war machine.”
AP indicates that other locales like Hot, Tatoonie and Sullust are teased. Then they offer a great quote about some of the vehicles. This comes from Executive Producer Patrick Bach.
“We wanted it to feel authentic to this universe…
…You can get into these vehicles, from speeder bikes to X-wings, TIE fighters, AT-STs, AT-ATs. There’s a wide range of vehicles that we wanted to realize. The difficulty with a game is that they need to be balanced with the troops on the ground.”
That’s about it. The embargo leak offers no new imagery or video, but we do have the first official screenshot above for your consideration. We’ll have more on Battlefront as it comes, and we do expect a new trailer around roughly 10:30am PT.
