Blast mode revealed for Star Wars Battlefront

News Xbox One

Blast mode SWB

Blast has been revealed as Star Wars Battlefront’s multiplayer deathmatch mode.

Rebel forces must kill off the Imperial team in 10v10 battles – the battle is over when one team hits 100 kills or after 10 minutes of gameplay has passed, and the team with the most kills wins.

 

One battle you’ll be fighting within interior levels on Endor or Sullust. 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.

Dennis Brännvall, Lead Level Designer.

There are several weapon pickups strewn across each map in Blast – I wonder if there will be a hidden lightsabre! The close-quarters nature of each level has been designed specifically for Blast – they aren’t just smaller sectioned off versions of the larger maps that are part of one of Battlefront’s other game modes.

Star Wars Battlefront releases November 17 – with members of EA Access getting early access prior to launch.

I've been gaming for longer than I care to remember and spent four years writing for another XCN website leading a 10 strong team. Now I'm in charge of TiX alongside Dave Moran – I hope you enjoy what we do!
