EA and Dice have released all new screenshots and information about their upcoming game Star Wars Battlefront, which will have an open Beta in October offering 3 modes of play.

The 3 modes; Walker Assault, Survival Mission and Drop Zone will all be present in the in open beta across several different maps/ locations. Right now no other information is known about the beta. 

Star Wars Battlefront’s newly announced game more, Drop Zone, will center around capturing drop pods which drop from the sky. These drop pods will act as command/ control points and the team which successfully captures the most drop podw within the match time limit expires wins. 

This new mode will rely on quick thinking, fast movement and defending a location from attacking enemies. 

 

  “This goes hand in hand with our design philosophy behind many of the game modes in Star Wars Battlefront,” Lead Level Designer  “We’re promoting the idea of a fast, action-packed game where you need to be mobile and think on your feet. Camping doesn’t really pay off.”

Dice has said that they have placed a lot of effort into designing the game’s many maps,  allowing the game to be fun and engaging regardless of which game mode is played. 

 

“Playing Drop Zone on the Swamp Crash Site on Endor is a personal favorite. The map has a couple of nice choke points but is overall very free-flowing and hectic, as enemies can attack from anywhere on that level,”
“The fight takes place around a crashed GR-75 transport ship with containers from the craft strewn across the landscape, and there’s one section with a waterfall overlooked by an Ewok village, where you have to jump down into the pool below in order to claim the pod, hoping no one’s hiding in the trees above waiting to pick you off.”
