Star Wars Battlefront Gameplay Revealed at E3 2015
Of all the major events planned at this year's E3 event in LA, one of the most hotly-anticipated has to be the unveiling of gameplay footage from EA/DICE's Star Wars: Battlefront. In a packed arena, fans were kept waiting for the Star Wars: Battlefront reveal as EA rattled details on new releases from across their vast gaming empire. But the wait was worth it, because what was revealed was enough to bring tears to any Star Wars fan's eyes.

The gameplay footage shown at E3 is part of the game's biggest modes: a 40 multiplayer battle entitled Walker Assault. As will be instantly obvious, the Walker Assault footage, which was captured on a PS4, is based on the Battle of Hoth from The Empire Strikes Back and showcases both first and third player gameplay as well as the ability to view the battle from both the Imperial and Rebel perspective. Teased right at the end of the trailer was the ability to take control of the Star Wars saga's two biggest stars; Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader.



Building upon earlier games in the series, the new Star Wars: Battlefront will allow players to take control of a range of characters and vehicles in both online multiplayer and offline solo games. Early buzz on live feeds of the reveal has been overwhelmingly positive, and when you watch the trailer for the first, second, or even third time, it's pretty clear why.

As was confirmed at Star Wars Celebration, Star Wars: Battlefront is scheduled for release on November 17th, just in time to capitalize on the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens and, of course, the busy holiday period. A free downloadable expansion will be also be made available a couple of weeks after the game's release, giving players a chance to witness the Battle of Jakku, which caused the destruction of the Star Destroyer seen in the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer.

EA also confirmed the development of another new Star Wars game, Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes. Details were thin on the ground about Galaxy of Heroes, but what we do know is that it will follow a collectible card game format.
