Star Wars Battlefront 2015 is the long awaited sequel to two of the best selling Star Wars games in the history of the franchise.
Star Wars Battlefront was launched in 2004 for multiple platforms and thrilled Star Wars fans and newcomers alike with intense first and third person action. The game put players in the shoes of soldiers on either side of the imperial war as well as the conflicts from the prequels and gave them access to all of the iconic weapons and vehicles that have been a part of pop culture for the last forty years.
It's sequel, Star Wars Battlefront 2, followed a year later and gave even more content, a better story and tons more features. One of it's most celebrated additions was the space battles that let you fly ships from the prequel trilogies in thrilling space battles against capital ships that players could land on, fight within and sabotage.
Since then though the series has gone cold and the developers Pandemic Studios were bought and subsequently closed by EA. For years the possibility of a sequel seemed distant and implausible and EA gave no indication that they were planning a follow up. This changed at E3 in 2013 where EA announced that their studio DICE, responsible for the Battlefield series, would be developing the long awaited sequel.
There's now a dearth of screenshots and trailers released by EA and fans have had a good look at what to expect on release day in November and what to expect looks good. The Frostbite Engine from DICE's Battlefield series is put to good use here presenting characters, vehicles and numerous famous locales from the franchise beautifully. The gameplay has a somewhat modern bent to it, removing the single player campaign in favour of a multiplayer only focus. This has been a sore point for some fans but from how it's looking the squad based, competitive play style looks great to us. Also there's a distinct lack of space battles this time round but each arena is open for dogfighting with the playable area stretching high up into the sky.
