Star Wars Battlefront’s hero system will turn you into a ‘beacon of hope’

REBEL SCUM! Who wants to be a meaningless foot soldier in the war between the Rebels and Empire, am I right? Sure, Stormtroopers have bitchin’ cool armour, but they’ve also got the depth perception of a cyclops and even worse aim. And Rebel soldiers have silly helmets. No, I want to be a badass. A Sith lord, a legendary bounty hunter or possibly a killer Ewok. At least two of those options will be available in Star Wars Battlefront, provided that you can power up in time.

Players will be able to kill a few rebels as infamous bounty hunter Boba Fett and Empirical number two Darth Vader. But to do so requires activating the hero power-up system.

“It has variations to it that depend on game modes and so on. But you can get it through a power-up system… when you find the hero power-up, that is when you can make your choice,” design director Niklas Fegraeus explained to OXM.

The thing is, don’t expect to be able to Force-choke your way through a dozen soldiers and win the fight instantly, as the hero mode is meant to offer its own sense of balance through a powerful but fleeting moment to turn the tide of battle as Nklas explained:

You basically have one life to use all that power, you get to try to turn the tide and win for your team and become a beacon of hope for everyone.

That also means that Vader will be impenetrable to any lasers striking him from the front as he deflects attacks with his lightsaber, while Force-choking soldiers and Force-auto-erotic-asphyxiating his way through kinkier members in your party.

  1. I read that as you getting to play as a ridiculously powerful hero character for as long as you can stay alive with said character.
    Am I right or am I misunderstanding it some how?

The cult as its name suggests, was a group of intellectuals who came together to instill discipline in themselves, infiltrate government agencies, and create a new world order. However, the original illuminate was disbanded by the government of Balgaria, when all secret societies were banned, though even before then, strong internal problems were already leading the illuminate cult to termination. That was the 18th century Illuminati. The 21st and 20th centuries also have an illuminate sect which in words you are more likely to understand, is supposed to sign you up , pull you into their chain of command, give you enlightenment, and then, power, as you’ll be playing sinewy roles in the government. This article tries to bring to light, facts about the modern illuminate, and also helps the reader to join, and utilize the opportunities availed by the sect, which are enlightenment, enrichment, and empowerment. The illuminate make people rich, famous and astoundingly powerful. The illuminate, which means enlightenment, purges your mind of all vestiges of ignorance, backwardness and naivety. It brings you out of the delusions and illusions which you’ve been subjected to by numerous religious escapades, and when you are relieved of these non-propitious encumbrances, success becomes inevitable. Knowing that many of us do not understand the illuminate as it is, I’ll go ahead to expound on this wonderful phenomenon and am hoping that by the time you get to the last paragraph of this article, you would be on your way to becoming “illuminated”. It would do the reader good to note that the Illuminati of the 18th century is not the same with the modern illuminate. The former was a cult, while the latter is a consciousness.
