The big game that the whole crowd wanted to see more of at the 2015 Electronic Arts E3 press conference was Star Wars Battlefront, and for good reason. The game is taking advantage of next generation graphics and technology to make sure that this is the best looking game to date. The multikplayer level that was shown off was inspired by the battle of Hoth from The Empire Strikes Back. Depending on what team you’re on, your objectives are different. Not only do you have to kill other players but the Empire has to take out the Rebels base, while the Rebels must defend it. It sounds pretty straight forward, but the match will play out however you want it, there is no distinct way of winning. Trial and error along with team based stategy is the only way you’ll be claiming a victory for either side.

As in previous games you have the ability to attack on foot or in vehicles. The Snow Speeder and Imperial Walker both show as being used, again depending on what side you’re on. The only thing that I wanted to see, but didn’t, was solo campaign gameplay. I want to know if you can play as Boba Fett during the campaign or only in multiplayer. In any case the game looks amazing and I can’t wait to play it this fall
