The Star Wars 2015 Celebration gave us a lot of news and content over the past few days, with a second teaser for Star Wars: The Force Awakens and DICE's conference, in which a trailer for Star Wars: Battlefront has been revealed.
Since then, we know that the release date for Star Wars Battlefront is set for November 17, 2015 in North America and November 20, 2015 in the rest of the world, on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. That's a month before Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters. Xbox One players get to play Star Wars Battlefront early via EA Access, according to Microsoft.
Perhaps one of the biggest reveals is that Star Wars Battlefront will not have a campaign. The original Battlefront from 2004 also lacked a narrative campaign, but one was introduced in its sequel Battlefront II. Instead of a story-driven campaign, Star Wars Battlefront features a series of missions, playable alone or via online and local co-op. Several playable hero units make appearances during these multiplayer battles, including Boba Fett and Darth Vader.
Star Wars Battlefront is set on four planets, according to several screenshots from the game, which you can see above. These planets are Tatooine, Endor, Hoth, and Sullust.
On December 8, a month after launch, Star Wars Battlefront owners will receive a free add-on for the game that adds another planet to the location line-up. Called Battle of Jakku, the DLC is set on the desert planet that made its first appearance in teasers for The Force Awakens. Fans who pre-order Battlefront get the DLC a week early, on December 1.
While it touches on Original Trilogy events, Star Wars Battlefront won't feature Prequel Trilogy elements like characters, settings, or vehicles. Star Wars Battlefront won't feature space battles, either, as DICE wants to focus instead on "planetary battles."
