For a long time there was a lot of major anticipation for DICE’s upcoming video game title “Star Wars: Battlefront,” but the buzz has cooled in recent weeks as more information has begun to be revealed.
One sticking point for a lot of people is the complete lack of a single player campaign. There will be offline play available, but it will be for just select missions and without any narrative or cut scenes to give these random missions any kind of link.
In a new interview with OPM UK, DICE’s Patrick Bach has gone on the record about another surprising bit of contention – a complete lack of any space-set missions in the game. It’s a surprise considering it was a key feature of the last game. Bach says:
“We want players to stay in the same [environment] – we don’t want players to fly off and do something over here. It’s about the Battlefront experience, so we want to keep you in-atmosphere and fighting with the infantry.”
The game itself, whatever the final form takes, hits on November 17th 2015.
