EA and DICE have revealed a new mode for the upcoming Star War’s Battlefront,The new mode known as Blast will put 10 Rebels against 10 storm-troopers and fight to get 100 kills. Blast matches will take place on smaller sized maps compared to the bigger maps for other modes such as Walker Assault, Blast will also feel unique due to the fact that there are no vehicles or no hero units to join in.
Blast offers a lot of variety both in terms of game play and the unpredictable nature of the opposing team. Actual levels within the mode also happen to hold great variation as well. Dennis Brännvall tells us about breathtaking sights within the mode that Star Wars fans will come across:
“One battle you’ll be fighting within interior levels on Endor or Sullust. In the next battle, you might find yourselves among Tatooine’s dusty canyons, or inside the undeniably cool Ice Caves on Hoth. My favourite is the verticality of Tatooine, fighting by the Sandcrawler.”
As in other Star Wars Battlefront game modes, the key to success is choosing a hand with a weapon layout that suits you and the battle conditions. Also, you’ll find weapon pick ups strewn across the map, and since there are no vehicles or Heroes & Villains joining the fight, the strategic value of these pick ups is quite high.
Star Wars Battlefront is shaping up to be a great game, with the hype level being of the charts. Star Wars Battlefront will no doubt break sales records. Keep an eye out for our full review upon its release.
