EA and DICE's upcoming Star Wars title, Star Wars: Battlefront, is almost upon us. As of now, the developing team is unveiling details about the new game carefully so as to maintain the suspense. And as it seems, there are some new details that have been revealed for one of the multiplayer modes in the game.
The developers have finally pulled the veils of the upcoming, new Supremacy mode for the game, one of the several multiplayer modes planned for Star Wars: Battlefront.
Supremacy, as revealed, focuses on five different control points that are scattered across the map. The objective here is to gain control of all five or the majority of them, before the 10-minute round is over. For the mode, each team will start the match controlling two of these control points, initially fighting for control of the fifth one in the centre.
Once that is out of the way, the control points will be needed to be claimed in a set order. This means the action will be taking place on two control points at a time, one for each team. The Supremacy mode seems perfect for all those who crave all-out multiplayer action.
"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 star fighters. You can prepare for very heavy and focused Star Wars action," states Lead Level Designer Dennis Brännvall.
"Using a character like Darth Vader to secure control points is great, as he can take increased damage before going down. Luke Skywalker and Boba Fett are great for moving swiftly between attacking and defensive positions, and giving you the edge against opponents in battle."
Interestingly, almost all the vehicles in Star Wars Battlefront will take part in the fight, so players have been urged to keep an eye on the sky for TIE fighters and X-wings that will be soaring through the sky to assist the quest for supremacy at each location.
As far as the map size is concerned, Supremacy is said to offer the largest fighting grounds that Star Wars Battlefront has to offer. There are vast maps, alongside the ability to capture key areas and all that may seem similar to DICE game fans. Brännvall, as member of the Battlefield team, has also confirmed the similarities between Supremacy and the signature mode from the game, Conquest.
"Supremacy is a game mode that will excite fans of the Conquest mode from Battlefield. That said, we've made several tweaks to improve the formula. You will always spawn close to the action when you enter Supremacy, so you'll never feel isolated from the fight. By focusing on one key point at a time, players not playing the objective and camping on a hill somewhere will be a rare sight," Brännvall adds.
As of now, Star Wars: Battlefront is set to launch on PS4, Xbox One, and PC this November.
Stay tuned for more updates!
