DICE has revealed that Star Wars Battlefront won’t have a single-player campaign. The game will rely on short missions that can be played on your own or with a friend via split-screen coop or online.
“I would say they occupy that space…where you play alone,” General Manager of DICE Patrick Bach told IGN. “Or you can play co-op, split screen or on the internet. The game is first and foremost a multiplayer game. Battlefront was a multiplayer game. That’s the game we wanted to create — to recreate the battles of the Original Trilogy.”
The co-op missions are all “connected” and “are quite different” from the competitive multiplayer mode, according to Bach. “Because it’s only a two-player experience you’re sharing with a friend, they’re custom built. It’s not about pulling a section out of somewhere else and you just do them. I can’t go into specifics about what mission we’ll have, but when we think about multiplayer and co-op, what we’re really trying to do is immerse yourself in your Star Wars battle fantasies.”
The missions are all short in length, with a wide range of difficulties available to play them on.
