After being announced at E3 2013, EA, DICE, and Lucasfilm have announced today that the highly-anticipated Star Wars Battlefront will be making its debut at this year’s Star Wars Celebration.
“We’re thrilled to share that Star Wars Battlefront will be taking part in Star Wars Celebration next month in Anaheim, CA from April 16-19,” their statement reads. “We could not think of a better or more appropriate place to debut the game officially for the first time than the premier event that celebrates the Star Wars universe and the legions of fans who have fallen in love with it.”
Little is known about the upcoming game, but developer DICE is using the Frostbite game engine which has been used in the latest “Battlefield” games.
“The scale of our maps and modes offer a great variety depending on the location,” Star Wars Battlefront Design Director Niklas Fegraeus previously said. “Hoth, where the Rebel Alliance fought off invading AT-ATs in snowy plains, will differ in size than the dense woodland of Endor….We have actually made the decision to specifically tailor certain maps to certain game modes and what we get from that is not only incredibly varied scales, but also gameplay that will allow players to live out some of their most memorable Star Wars battle fantasies.”
No official release date has been set for Star Wars Battlefront, but it was previously revealed that the game will debut at the end of this year.
