With the Star Wars: Battlefront Reboot reveal at Star Wars Celebration imminent, I thought I ‘d give a refresher on what we know so far about the reboot and also talk about what I hope will be in the game.
What Do We Know?
One point I want to emphasise is that it is not Battlefront 3 as many refer to it. It is a complete reboot of the franchise. It will be on the newest consoles and on PC and will feature locations and elements we are familiar with from the previous games.
What I Would Love to See in Star Wars Battlefront
It would be great to see some of the classic maps from the old games, especially ones depicting prominent places in the Star Wars Franchise, re-imagined. Classic maps that I’d like to see include Death Star, Bespin and Yavin (we already know Hoth, Tatooine and Endor are in the game). It would be great to also see some new places for us to
explore shoot up not in the previous games as well.
Maybe we’ll even see the new planet announced at Star Wars Celebration, Jakku, make an appearance. That ship wrecked landscape, as seen in the latest The Force Awakens Teaser Trailer, would make a really cool map for both land battles and for flying around!
The ability to destroy the environment, to some extent, would be great as well.
I want to see the same combat we’re familiar with, obviously improved upon, along with the different classes and the chance to play as heroes from the Star Wars Franchise. Having the same array of vehicles and turrets to use as from the previous games at a minimum would be great to see. At the same time I would love to see some new vehicles and classes added that we can experience.
Hopefully they improve on the space combat. It would be great to see the new possibilities with the Frostbite 3 Engine. The space combat in Battlefront II was fantastic and hopefully they can add something new to it. I always loved the simplicity of it which made it so much fun. Hopefully we can take part in some familiar space battles and maybe even some new ones.
When is the Reveal Happening?
It’s starting the 17th April 10:30am PST, 18th April 3:30am AEST/5:30am NZ at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim. They will be livestreaming the event on StarWars.com.
So what are you hoping will be revealed about Battlefront today at Star Wars Celebration? Are you excited to hopefully see some actual game footage?
