Star Wars Battlefront Release Date Announced
A whole bunch of new information about Star Wars Battlefront has been revealed by DICE, including details about when the game is going to be released. So far, we have yet to see any true in-game footage, but a very impressive in-engine trailer was released alongside the information that DICE has shared.
First thing's first, the release date for Star Wars Battlefront has been set for an unspecified day in November. The new Battlefront game will be available for PS4, Xbox One and PC when it releases.
DICE also revealed that Battlefront will run at 60 frames per second and all local game modes will support split screen play. Unfortunately there will be no split screen support for online modes. The local mode that will support split screen play is called Missions and this is a game mode that puts human players against a team of bots. Similarly to Titanfall, Star Wars Battlefront will not have any singleplayer campaign so the Missions mode will be the only option players will have for playing offline.
Whilst DICE didn't say exactly how many maps will be available, they did state that Star Wars Battlefront will have more than 8 maps at launch, which suggests that more may come in the future as DLC. There will be four planets at launch and there will be at least two different maps per planet.
Hopefully we'll learn more about Star Wars Battlefront at E3 later this year.
