Game developer DICE has revealed on Wednesday three new modes for the Star War: Battlefront video game. These modes are: Hero Hunt, Droid Run, and Cargo were unveiled this week alongside with the game’s $5o DLC pass.
Gamespot has listed below the description for each mode. The game has also other modes which include Walker Assault, Blast, Drop Zone, Supremacy, and Fighter Squadron. However, it was stressed that the game won’t feature a traditional single-player mode.
In this 7v1 mode, one player begins as a Hero or Villain character, while the other seven play as either Rebels or Imperial forces of the opposing side. Kill the Hero/Villain and you’ll take their place. Rack up the most time as the Hero/Villain before the match is over and you win.
“Rebels and Imperials both have a base on the map where valuable cargo is stored. Your objective is to run in to the enemy base, pick up the cargo, and return it to your home base. It’s a classic concept, but we’ve added one twist: you don’t need to have your own cargo in your base in order to bring back the cargo you’ve taken from your enemies. This creates a tug of war experience where you simply need to collect as much cargo as possible.”
Scoring begins at 5-5. Take hold of a cargo crate and your side will take a 6-4 lead, with the rest of the match’s scoring changing in that way. The team with the most points after 15 minutes is the winner. Read more here.
Described as one of the game’s more “unpredictable and fast” modes, this gametype sees players fighting to control three “mischievous” GNK droids.
“There are three active objectives on the map that you need to control. These aren’t just any objectives–what you need to get a hold of are three different GNK droids. What’s particularly charming with these is that they’re all moving and have to be caught before the capture process can start. This creates a more dynamic and action-filled experience,” DICE said.
These matches are 6v6. Your objective is to capture and hold all three droids before the 10-minute match is up. There are weapon pickups on the map, but no Hero/Villain character or vehicles.
