It's Han Solo vs Darth Vader in This Action-Pack Star Wars Battlefront Gameplay Trailer
Woah. EA has just released their gameplay launch trailer for Star Wars: Battlefront, dropping the names of some serious Star Wars heavy hitters in the process. Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Boba Fett, and Emperor Palpatine all see some serious action, but the best moment is delivered when the plucky Han Solo attempts to take on a Sith Lord armed with nothing but his trusty blaster.



The trailer is loaded with brilliant moments, but seeing Han take up a swashbuckling stance to fight one of the most-powerful beings in the galaxy is priceless. Another nice moment came when we see Leia, the most-boss Princess of all time, taking on the famed Bounty Hunter Boba Fett. While this isn't anything close to the mismatch of Han v Vader, it's nice to see that they're playing up to Leia's warrior personality. We personally like to think it was Leia's badassery that led to this neat little moment....


The trailer highlights just how many of the Star Wars galaxy's iconic characters that Battlefront will make available to players. The prospect of controlling powerful Jedi and Sith such as Luke Skywalker and Vader is a mouth-watering one, but the idea of being able to control Darth Sidious is arguably the most exciting. According to EA, Sheev (yeah, Sheev!) will shed his hobbling demeanour, using Force Dash to hurtle around game maps before using Force Lightning to deliver a lethal blow to combatants. 

Palpatine/Sheev/Sidious won't be the only one with special abilities in Battlefront, in fact all of the iconic characters will have their own strengths and weaknesses. Luke will combine Force Pushes with top agility, while Vader will be a tad on the slow side but make up for it with Force Chokes. Leia will be more of a defensive master, Boba Fett will be an aerial threat, but it's Han Solo who is expected to be the jack-of-all-trades. Adept at both long and close range combat, Han comes with a special 'Lucky Shot' ability, which is definitely the hallmark of all great rogues.

Star Wars Battlefront hits stores on November 17th.
