On July 28th, Dice Developer, Mathew Everett, released the second Battlefront 3 community update. The update includes teasers to what fans can expect to see at Gamescon 2015, as well as a Q&A regarding upcoming Battlefield 3 content.
In the update, Mathew addresses how gamers can get the latest Battlefront 3 news by heading to Gamescon. “Soon, we will be revealing more multiplayer modes along with brand-new gameplay footage and even a new hero type…” Mathews also notes that the new, unique game mode will be exciting for starfighter fans. Perhaps Dice is improving space battles from Battlefront 2, or making them playable in planet-side missions like in the first Battlefront. In any case, I’m excited to see what the Dice team has in store.
Of course it wouldn’t be a good update without some teasers. Below are just a few notable Q&A’s taken from the Battlefront blog:
Q.) How many Heroes/Villains will Star Wars Battlefront offer?
A.) We have only revealed three Heroes/Villains at this time – Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader and Boba Fett – but we do have more to talk about in the near future that will fill in the ranks of Heroes and Villains.
Q.) In Walker Assault, we saw snowspeeders, TIE fighters, and X-wings. Are these air vehicles available in every Walker Assault mode regardless of the map?
A.) The vehicles available in Walker Assault will vary based on the map. As you all mentioned, in our E3 build there are snowspeeders, TIE fighters, and X-wings. In contrast, Walker Assault on Endor, seen in our debut trailer, will feature an absolutely massive AT-AT.
Q.) Can I play Missions as both Rebel and Imperial forces?
A.) While Survival Missions will only allow players to fight for the Rebels, our Battles and Hero Battles Missions give players the opportunity to fight as either the Rebels or Imperials.
