Star Wars Battlefront: Stunning Endor Concept Art Revealed
EA and DICE have been quiet about Star Wars Battlefront since E3 2014, when we got our first glimpse of the revival in the Frostbite Engine 3 -- and while it’ll be a bit before we finally see the multiplayer shooter in action, IGN is excited to reveal this gorgeous piece of concept art.
The imagery features a pair of Rebels, a woman with a standard blaster, and a man with a scoped rifle, flanking a pair of Stormtroopers – one with his rifle at the ready, the other priming a Thermal Detonator – as the forest moon of Endor burns in the background.
In the distance, behind the Empire’s AT-ST, we get a glimpse of Ewok villages in the trees, hopefully indicating verticality in DICE’s map design. A defeated AT-ST sits smoking in the woods. Perhaps this suggests destroyed vehicles remain on Star Wars Battlefront’s battlefields.
DICE remains close-guarded with gameplay specifics, but speaking with IGN, Star Wars Battlefront Design Director Niklas Fegraeus explained a bit more of what’s to come when the first-person shooter arrives this fall.
