Star Wars Battlefront: no split-screen support for PC

DICE has answered a few fan questions about Star Wars Battlefront, but not all answers will make them happy.


Having shown the very first gameplay footage for Star Wars Battlefront at E3 2015, DICE was inundated with question about how multiplayer works, the type of features we can expect, and more.

Which is why Mathew Everett, Star Wars Battlefront community manager decided to answer a few of the top questions coming out of E3.

Here they are.

Q. How do vehicles spawn in Walker Assault?

A: In Walker Assault, vehicles are tied to the power up system. When you find a vehicle power up on the map, you will need to activate it, which immediately spawns you inside the vehicle.

Vehicle power ups specifically must be used within a certain amount of time. This is a design decision to allow more equal distribution of the vehicle power ups amongst all players.

Q. Can I fly the Y-wing?

A: Y-wings are non-player controlled vehicles. They are a support vehicle that you can call into battle within certain game modes.

Q. Is Split-screen available on PC?

A: Split-screen will be available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One only.

Q. Does experience within Missions apply to multiplayer progression?

A: Playing Missions does not grant you multiplayer career experience, but it does provide you with credit rewards you can spend on buying unlocks.

Everett added that in the coming months, DICE will reveal more of the game’s multiplayer modes. Supremacy, Fighter Squadron, Blast, Drop Zone, and Cargo will be among them.
