As promised, Electronic Arts and DICE revealed Star Wars Battlefront during the Star Wars Celebration event held in California. The reveal trailer stipulates “Game Engine Footage” at the start, and it’s certainly likely considering DICE is using the Frostbite Engine. The result is the most spectacular looking Star Wars game the industry has ever seen. That being said, this is not gameplay; in fact there’s no gameplay to be seen at all, but that still doesn’t stop this reveal from being amazing.
The trailer is primarily set on the forest moon of Endor, and those familiar with Return of the Jedi will likely get a kick out of the prospect of playing one of the most memorable battles in the franchise’s history. There are speeders, AT-STs, AT-ATs, a Sullustan who looks like he’s in a support role, Y-Wings dropping bombs, and a deployable shield generator that looks like it would be at home on Naboo in the middle of a Gungan army.
Yesterday it was rumoured that the game would be out on 17 November. The trailer you can watch after the jump is the UK version, and that stipulates 20 November for us in this territory.
