After what seemed like ages and eons of waiting, we finally have our first look at Star Wars Battlefront, and of course, EA picked Hoth to be the battle we see first. Toe cables, AT-ATs, target the power generator, maximum firepower! Hobbie! I’ve been hit!
We’ve watched and played through Hoth so many hundreds of different times and ways that one more can’t possibly hurt. DICE’s spin with the Star Wars franchise is breathtaking powered by the Frostbite Engine 3, but it does come off as a little too much like “Battlefield with a Star Wars” skin. I’m hoping it can carve a bit more of its own identity out from DICE’s legacy.
We only get a brief instant of a hero duel between Luke and Vader before all cuts to black. The ultimate teaser!
Star Wars Battlefront launches on Nov. 17 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
