Star Wars Battlefront gets ‘Conquest’ style mode

DICE have revealed that Star Wars Battlefront will be getting a multiplayer mode that doesn’t sound too dissimilar from one of Battlefield’s most popular ones. Supremacy will pit the Rebels against the Empire in a fight over five control points that must be captured in sequence. Lead Level Designer Dennis Brännvall comments:

When you spawn into Supremacy, you don’t have to move far to see a lot of friends – and enemies. You’re thrown into a massive frontline, where your screen is filled with adversaries: infantry, Heroes, Walkers, and starfighters. You can prepare for very heavy and focused Star Wars™ action,

This is a great move by DICE to keep the action intense, and feeling like a huge Star Wars battle rather than a small skirmish – I felt that Infinity Ward nailed this style of spawn in Call of Duty 4.

Vehicles and hero characters also join the fight so don’t expect Supremacy to be a cake walk, and with the largest maps of all the modes, it will be impossible for fans and critics not to draw comparisons with Battlefield’s Conquest mode.

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!
