EA and DICE have been reticent when it comes to revealing details about their upcoming Star Wars Battlefront game, but a recent update to the spanish version of the Star Wars Battlefront website may have just confirmed the existence of Hereos vs Villains mode:
This description, helpfully translated by reddit user /u/thementorassassin16, seems to roughly translate as the following:
“In addition to Walker Assault, Star Wars Battlefront will feature immersive, fun-filled multiplayer modes including Supremacy, Fighter Squadron, Blast, Drop Zone, Cargo, and Heroes vs Villains mode, that will be announced in the months ahead. Stay tuned for more information on these exciting multiplayer modes.”
For those of you who weren’t able to enjoy 2005’s excellent Star Wars: Battlefront 2, Heroes vs Villains mode was a non-canon extravaganza of fun where you could pick any hero character from the series and pit them against others in a glorious deathmatch. Darth Vader vs Leia Organa vs Count Dooku vs Boba Fett and so on. This video by 316whatupz should help provide insight on what glorious fun it was
But it is important to note that this news is absent from all versions of the site except the Spanish one, so whether this is a case of an intern jumping the gun on a reveal, or simply someone getting a bit excited with their placeholder text we won’t know until formal word from EA or DICE is given.
