Beware of the Slave I.
DICE’s Star Wars: Battlefront offered a chance to try out Hero pickups in the beta and it seems the power-ups aren’t just limited to characters. There will also be tokens you can grab while airborne to obtain a Hero Vehicle like Han Solo’s Millennium Falcon or Boba Fett’s Slave I.
Each has their own abilities as well. The Slave I is capable of firing Ion Cannons and Proton Torpedoes while also jamming enemy radars.
As DICE states in a new blog post, “Should you spot the Millennium Falcon or Slave I as a regular starship pilot, your best bet is to stay behind them and try to team up with other players. Since the Rebel and Imperial standard ships are smaller than the Hero Vehicles, you can also dive against the planetary surface and use crevices to shake off Solo’s or Fett’s pursuit.”
So if you’ve wanted to pilot one of these iconic vehicles, don’t worry – you’ll your chance when Star Wars: Battlefront is out on November 17th in North America and November 20th in Europe.
