Star Wars Battlefront’s latest multiplayer mode has been revealed, and its a 10v10 team deathmatch mode called “Blast”.
Blast pits Rebel and Imperial factions against each other in 10v10 matches, as noted above. If your team reaches 100 kills or it is ahead of the other when the 10-minute timer runs out, you’ve won.
“One battle you’ll be fighting within interior levels on Endor or Sullust,” said lead level designer Dennis Brännvall. “In the next battle, you might find yourselves among Tatooine’s dusty canyons, or inside the undeniably cool Ice Caves on Hoth.
“My favorite is the verticality of Tatooine, fighting by the Sandcrawler.”
As speculated previously, it’s a close-quarters mode and the map is smaller than in other game modes.
Each map has been designed with a specific game mode in mind so each is different from the last, or next.
“As in other Star Wars Battlefront game modes, the key to success is choosing a hand with a weapon layout that suits you and the battle conditions,” said Brännvall. “Also, you’ll find weapon pickups strewn across the map, and since there are no vehicles or Heroes & Villains joining the fight, the strategic value of these pickups is quite high.
“Whether you pick up a Droid scanning for nearby enemies or a turret that’ll control a zone for you, the pickups can really turn the tide of a Blast match. They are not around every corner though, so keep your eyes peeled.”
Star Wars Battlefront releases on November 17 and will be playable at gamescom next week.
