EA confirms C-3PO in Battlefront, unique mission maps

1 min read


For a while there, all the Battlefront news consisted of assurances of what it wouldn’t include. Now we’re getting a few small tidbits about what we can expect in the game, as well as promises of more info during E3.

We may still be waiting for, you know, gameplay information, but at least we’ve got some clue about a beloved character thanks to Twitter:

Anthony Daniels has voiced the etiquette and protocol droid since the beginning so it’s great to know that the right voice actor has been tapped for use in the game. Of course, what C-3PO will be doing in a combat situation is unclear, but not totally unreasonable. Perhaps this means that we’ll also be getting some interesting story to go along with the fighting.

Speaking of battles, story-based missions will take place on specific, unique maps that aren’t reused in multiplayer (thanks DualShockers).

Mission maps are unique to Missions. The map count we revealed includes only Multiplayer maps from the base game (12 maps). We also have the two extra free maps that will come with the Battle of Jakku. The Battle of Jakku maps will arrive starting on December 1st or December 8th depending if you pre-ordered, which gives us 14 maps total before The Force Awakens arrives in theaters.
We will reveal the full Mission map count in the near future.

E3 isn’t far away now, and I’m pretty keen to see what EA reveals. Will we get some gameplay demos for the game, as well as perhaps a story trailer during the press conference? I think that will make fans unbearably happy. An EA press conference with Battlefront and Mass Effect? That will almost make up for all the sports games we’ll have to hear about at the same time.

    Where’s the article about D’s against all odds victory?

      A VERY valid point

      Hamiltion won in Canada, Barcelona claimed a treble by beating Juventus and the Stormers drew with the Lions. All that pales in comparison with the D’s victory.

        Yep. Now all that remains to be seen is if he’ll move out of PE with his new found glory.

    Fifa 16…. Only thing they have updated so far is showing up Ubisoft with female rendering… Usually by now we know where the updates will be in the gameplay or am I too early for news on it?

    Who wants t bet that with gender diversity being such a big thing, we will have female stormtroopers. In fact they better have female stormtroopers.
    The Empire needs all available citizens to wipe out the rebel scum.
