Star Wars Battlefront players who can’t or won’t play with others can always team up with and against AI.
Star Wars Battlefront will support AI bots for those who want to play alone, DICE has confirmed.
According to design director Niklas Fegraeus, bots will be available both on and offline.
We have a feature called Missions that allow you to play solo or cooperatively with bots on or offline https://t.co/v7IL7fuC8G

This may be some consolation to fans disappointed by the news that Star Wars Battlefront won’t have a single-player story campaign. It is going to have “crafted missions” – possibly something similar to Titanfall’s campaign – but that’s probably not the narrative-driven experience fans of Battlefront 2 in particular were hoping for.
On the other hand, DICE has a pretty poor reputation for single-player experiences; maybe it’s all for the best. And then there’s always Visceral Games’ Star Wars game; although it might not be the stormtrooper-led story you wanted from Battlefront, with Amy Hennig in the lead it’s sure to be something interesting.
Star Wars Battlefront is coming to PC, PS4 and Xbox One in November. Did you see the reveal trailer? Phenomenal.
