What happens when you want to give up on all that ground based combat that happens in between hopping into a vehicle in Star Wars: Battlefront and stick to the sky for some pure aerial stuff? Will you be able to do that?
The answer is “yes.” Star Wars: Battlefront will include a Fighter Squadron mode that pits whole groups of ships against one another or against AI for missions.
Here’s what Niklas Fegraeus, DICE Design Director, has to saw about the upcoming Fighter Squadron mode according to his large post on the official Star Wars: Battlefront blog.
You could see a tiny snippet of this in our trailer where you saw the Fighter Squadron mode, where you engage in huge Starfighter battles over canyons big enough to be truly epic…
Then, for those not in the mood for large scale battles, we have created Missions where players can, for example, take on armies of AI or test their piloting skills. All our Missions can be played either alone or cooperatively, making them perfect for some quick Star Wars action when you have a friend over.
Fegraeus also announced the next time we’ll see gameplay from Battlefront. That’s coming during E3 on June 15. We’ll be there, and we’ll be checking the game out at EA’s official booth.
Star Wars: Battlefront is set to sell for the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One starting on Nov. 17, 2015. We’ll have more on the game as it comes.
