More Star Wars Battlefront Heroes & Villains Reportedly Uncovered, EA Details Hero Hunt Mode

With the Star Wars Battlefront beta having gone live a couple days ago for early access players, Reddit user TheeUberMedic dug around in the PC version’s files and found some of the other playable Heroes and Villains in the game.

According to them, Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, and Boba Fett will be joined by Han Solo, Princess Leia, and the Emperor.

Previously, EA has said, “Other iconic characters will be part of your team together with ground troopers.”

Additionally, TheeUberMedic re-discovered the mode called Hero Hunt. Over on EA’s website, they actually confirmed this mode, as well as others, but took down the details shortly afterwards.

Thanks to Google Cache though, we have all the details of these new modes right here:

Hero Hunt

  • Seven Imperials against Luke Skywalker? Seven Rebels battling it out against Boba Fett? In Hero Hunt, one player will experience the thrill of playing as an iconic Star Wars Battlefront Hero or Villain, facing off against ground troops from the opposing faction. Want to play as the Hero? Take them out and you’ll get your chance, but remember, once you become the Hero the hunt is on.


  • A thrilling tug-of-war experience for fans of Star Wars and capture the flag gameplay. Cargo challenges your team to capture valuable cargo boxes from the opposing team. Get the loot and make your way back to your base – but don’t forget to defend your own precious cargo as each capture counts.

Droid Run

  • Six Rebels and six Imperials fight to capture and hold on to three GNK Power Droids. These are the Droids you’re looking for. GONK!

As a reminder, the Star Wars Battlefront beta is now available.
