Star Wars Battlefront walks a bit too much along the uncanny valley for me. Never had my childhood self ever expected to be playing a Star Wars game that so perfectly captures the films’ action, and myself as an adult is still having a hard time grasping it as well.
10 minutes of footage leaked from a pre-alpha PC version further confirms my brain’s conundrum. “What is this? Is this the game or the movie? What are we doing here?,” it asks. The footage is unedited from start to finish, giving a great sense of the intensity that the 40 player Hoth battles.
How many times have I battled on Hoth through the powers of video games? Plenty to be sure, but none that have looked or felt as accurate as this. I can’t wait to finally get my hands on it.
Star Wars Battlefront launches for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on Nov. 17.
