This underscores developer Dice now with the introduction of three new game modes that has been kept under wraps. One of them is called “Hero Hunt” and leaves seven players Memoirs of an individual gamblers make. Who Schweitzer the lone fighter takes over next its role and becomes the hunted. The second mode is called “Cargo” and provides a twist on the classic “capture the flag” mode. Rebels and the Empire occur therein in six teams compete against each other and steal the opposing team valuable cargo, as they try to defend their own belongings. The third mode “Droid Run” takes place similarly, but will allow players to the task to take droids and keep as long as possible to earn points. This mode dispenses with the use of vehicles, but offers the collection of new weapons. Total is “Star Wars – Battlefront” on the current state with nine game modes at the start.
Vorschau: Star Wars – Battlefront
Electronic Arts breathes exactly the right time of his “Battlefront” brand new life. Finally, in December, the seventh film appears – “Star Wars” is on everyone’s lips. Thus the perfect setting to make a game around Luke Sky walker and Darth Vader at the start.However, what many occasional gamers likely to offend, is the lack of single-player mode. Developer Studio Dice focuses completely on epic multiplayer battles – but the best come in “Star Wars” style therefore.
On October 8, the open beta will start on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. In Stockholm, the editors already rushed to the battlefield, and took the three game modes of the test phase in inspection. In the final game, there is the launch of seven pure multiplayer modes. Three additional game variants you deny alone or cooperatively with a friend.
Sleepless in Sullust
The first beta excursion takes in the winter wonderland of Sullust. Crashed X and Tie-Wings give the map the typical “Star Wars” charms. Many hills, spread across the map, invite you to snipers. The Game Mode “drop zone” is classic “Battlefield” -Cost: The teams take different points on the map and a keep as many of them to scoop counter to own account. The checkpoints are not known from the outset, be set only during game play – which brings a lot of momentum in the games. On Tatooine co-op gamers will get their money: In the least possible time it is important to eliminate six waves of enemies, which is on the playable in beta Difficulty no real problem.
It’s getting Hoth in here
The heart of the test phase is the “ruff-attack”: Again, true usual “Battlefield” feeling of the great battlefields of “Star Wars” license. On the part of the rebels try to unlock three up links, in order to obtain the desired air support against the gigantic AT-ATs of the Empire. As Storm trooper you want to prevent exactly that.
For a handful of Star Cards
Before you go into battle, you assemble three slots, called Hands, with upgrades and secondary weapons. Each slot has the game to a function; one for grenades, particularly strong Broomstick and physical improvements. Is interesting to note that so “Star Cards” available indefinitely. The only restriction is you have to wait for a short time between the inserts. And there’s really good stuff, what about these slots your character give to the battlefield: enforce the gun that acts on long distance wonders, a shield or ion shots and grenades, mainly energy shields and robots. In addition to these extras little helpers are on each card, and in the previously distributed ans pielbaren modes: collecting them on, there is immediate support – such as a turret or a protective field.
Match the hero
In the open beta you get into the skin of two “Star Wars” -Helen: Darth Vader and his son Luke Sky walker. Raise the appropriate power-up on, you turn keystroke in one of the characters. Fight on imperial side, you swing the sword of the villain; the rebels is Luke Sky walker aside. As a hero, the perspective changes in the third person. Just armed with light saber and the power, you mow through the hordes of enemies. For this you have extra moves are available, such as the typical Vader Strangler. Or twirl as Sky walker counter parties in the air. The fun is usually short-lived: your health decreases constantly, by Kill series you slow down the effect somewhat. But does the assembled opponents team chasing you, you will have a hard time as a hero.
Hit and Run
The weapon handling is well done, a red box indicates Hits feedback. This is especially useful on long distances, because it can already hit some sheathes before the death screen pops. Goals goes slightly out of hand, the weapons have little delay, thereby acting “Star Wars – Battlefront” significantly arcade-heavy and entry-friendly than the “Battlefield” series. To ammo you do not have to worry because you’re shooting with laser guns – and the need is well known, no cartridges. Break Loose Shooting is still not in it: For continuous fire the weapon overheats quickly and requires a cooling phase until it is ready for use again.
Prognoses: Star Wars – Battlefront
Who loves multiplayer shooter and “Star Wars” is with “Battlefront” dead right. The situation is different for fans of the film series, who with multiplayer shooting action little to nothing to do. Due to the lack of a story-driven single-player mode, this game should they not elicit behind the stove. A look into the open beta but you should venture in any case – the power has already converted many.
