DICE also shares information on Fighter Squadron mode.
DICE has confirmed what most of us kind of already knew – it will be presenting the first gameplay footage of Star Wars: Battlefront at E3 during EA’s press conference on June 15th.
In a new blog post, design director Niklas Fegraeus talked about Fighter Squadron mode, which – as the name implies – focuses purely on aerial combat between TIE Fighters, X-Wings and other vessels (all battles taking place planetside, however).
“You could see a tiny snippet of this in our trailer where you saw the Fighter Squadron mode, where you engage in huge Starfighter battles over canyons big enough to be truly epic.
“Then, for those not in the mood for large scale battles, we have created Missions where players can, for example, take on armies of AI or test their piloting skills. All our Missions can be played either alone or cooperatively, making them perfect for some quick Star Wars action when you have a friend over.”
Star Wars: Battlefront releases on November 17th in North America and November 20th in Europe for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
