Watch: Star Wars Battlefront Gameplay Footage from Survival Mode on Tatooine
Yesterday evening's Star Wars: Battlefront gameplay reveal from E3 had gamers and Star Wars fans weeping with joy. But that particular video only showcased one of Star Wars: Battlefront's many game modes, which means that there is still a lot more to come from the game's developers, EA/DICE. Luckily for us, we didn't have to wait too long to see more from the game, as new gameplay footage for a Tatooine survival mode has been released.



In contrast to the 'Walker Assault' mode witnessed at E3 yesterday, 'Tatooine Survival' will offer a more intimate but equally sweaty palm affair. Taking control of rebel soldiers, players must repel wave after wave of increasingly tough Imperial attacks. Starting off with swarms of traditional Stormtroopers and progressing to Shock Troopers and even AT-ST walkers. Where the Hoth Walker Assault footage featured gameplay that allowed up to 40 players to join the battle, Star Wars: Battlefront's survival mode will allow players to fight solo or with one other gamer in a 2-player co-op situation. 

However, Survival Mode will not be limited purely to one planet.  As the official Battlefront site reveals, "Survival can be played on all the planets in Star Wars Battlefront including Endor, Hoth, Sullust and Tatooine, and the maps have been specially designed with this Mission type in mind."

In addition to the Survival and Large-Scale battle modes we've already seen, Star Wars: Battlefront will have a number of other game modes, including special trial modes and Hero Battles, which will presumably let you take control of some of the Star Wars saga's most iconic characters. Some of the big name characters who have already been confirmed as playable include Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, and Boba Fett, but expect a few more to be announced between now and the game's release.

Star Wars Battlefront will be available on November 17th, with bonus DLC content likely to follow shortly after.
