We knew Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, and Boba Fett would be playable in Star Wars Battlefront. Now, a few more characters have been discovered.
Reddit user TheeUberMedic mined the files of the on-going Star Wars Battlefront beta and found a file called “characters.cb.” There, he found references to Han Solo, Princess Leia, and the Emperor. He also found references to something called “Hero Battle,” and claims to have found a directory of weapons and vehicles, which he will publish later.
Heroes and Villains are special playable characters in Star Wars Battlefront that can be unlocked through powerups found on the map. These characters have special abilities that make them a force to reckon with on the battlefield. So far, only Luke, Darth Vader, and Boba Fett have been confirmed by EA, though the publisher did mention that they are “just some” of the Heroes and Villains that will be in the game.
Star Wars Battlefront releases on November 17th, a month ahead of the upcoming movie, Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens. The game will release on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Battlefront’s beta started today, October 8th, and will run through October 12th. The PC version of the game can be pre-loaded through Origin right now, while the console version of the title will be ready to download at a later date.
