Star Wars: Battlefront Might Be Getting an Offline Single-Player Mode Soon
Star Wars: Battlefront has come in for a great deal of criticism since its release late last year. No space battles, no story mode, and no offline mode are a few of the biggest gripes, and while we might have to wait for Battlefront 2 to have all of our demands met, a recent video has sparked wild discussion that EA is planning to at least give us an offline single-player mode before the year is out.

The video below claims to show a hidden menu option on the Battlefront home screen. This hidden menu option supposedly emerged after the most recent update to the game, and it's contents include something that will no doubt get Battlefront fans very excited indeed.



An offline mode where you can battle against bots would go a long way to getting more Battlefront players back into the game. A lack of human players on certain game modes has led to the Battlefront experience feeling somewhat empty at times, but the chance to see modes like Fighter Squadron packed to the rafters with players, albeit bot players, would no doubt see many gamers (myself included) dusting off their copies of the game.

Unfortunately, if this is a legitimate possibility, it looks as though co-op play will still only be available online, but at this point, we'll take what we can get. Of course, there still remains a heavy amount of doubt surrounding the legitimacy of this video. Nobody from EA or Dice has confirmed or denied the report, but there's still Star Wars Celebration in London next week for them to make an official announcement.



In other Battlefront news, another report from a Reddit user claims that new weapons and skins are coming to the game with the next update. Among the new weapons the leak claims to be coming to the game is the Bo-Rifle, a weapon with both ranged and melee capabilities made famous by Star Wars Rebels' very own Lasat, Zeb.
