The teaser further stirs our curiosity for DICE’s shooter.
EA has posted a new teaser for DICE’s Star Wars: Battlefront, the upcoming first person shooter set in the Star Wars universe and in development for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
The teaser doesn’t show much – a crashing Snowspeeder and giant foot of an AT-AT Walker are the only notable stand-outs – but it does promise more at the upcoming Star Wars Celebration on April 16th to 19th. Given how EA promised to reveal more details about the shooter in Spring 2015, this could be the announcement we’ve been waiting for.
Star Wars: Battlefront actually originated in 2004 when Pandemic Studios created the conquest-based shooter for LucasArts. It received a sequel before LucasArts sold the rights of the franchise to Disney, who subsequently tied up with EA for a multi-year deal to develop Star Wars titles.
DICE’s title is seen as a reboot of the series and will reportedly tie into the release of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens. It’s out this Holiday season so stay tuned for more information.
