Over on the official EA Star Wars website, Star Wars Battlefront Community Manager Mathew Everett shared a few details and answered a few fan questions about the upcoming DICE-developed shooter.
First off, Everett confirmed that new gameplay footage, multiplayer modes and even a new Hero type will be revealed soon.
Soon, we will be revealing more multiplayer modes along with brand-new gameplay footage and even a new hero type…nope, that wasn’t a typo. Headed to Gamescom? If so, you will be among the first gamers to go hands on with a new and unique game mode I know fans of Starfighters are going to be excited about.
Aside from that, a few fan questions were answered, too. While most of the info posted there is old news, EA did reveal when fans can get some hands-on time with the shooter, as well mention which species gamers can play as in-game.
Q.) When or where can I play Star Wars Battlefront?
A.) As some of you know, we recently hosted a small-scale technical Alpha that allowed some gamers a chance to go hands on with Star Wars Battlefront. As this was testing specific technical elements on the backend, invites were limited.
But, we do have a few opportunities for you to go hands on with the game just around the corner. For our fans down under, head on over to EB Games Expo in Sydney, AU. Live in SoCal? Get your tickets for the D23 Expo in Anaheim, CA. For our fans in Europe, check out Gamescom in Cologne, DE, where we will reveal an all-new multiplayer game mode with which you can go hands-on.
Q.) What are some of the species I can play as?
A.) We’re giving fans the opportunity to play as some of their favorite characters and species in Star Wars Battlefront. You will be able to unlock the ability to play as Twi’leks, Sullustans, Zabraks, Quarrens and more while fighting for the Rebels.
You can check out the rest of the questions here.
Star Wars Battlefront will be out on November 17 for PC, Xbox One and PS4.
