Just before Gamescon 2017, Starfighter Assult was announced for Star Wars Battlefront II. Featuring 12 v 12 space-based dogfights, the mode will be one of first that is part of the ongoing beta for gamers who pre-ordered Battlefront II.
In real Star Wars fashion, fighter pilots will be tasked with various objectives during the course of a match. These include taking out turrets, getting Savior Kill assists, and destroying various objects in the vacuum of space.
The video, which is included below, shows off a full match from the perspective of a rebel X-Wing pilot. You can see that along with having Imperial transports as some of the key targets you are commanded to take down, there are Tie Fighters, controlled by other players, that will attempt to shoot you if you don’t shoot first.
All-in-all, there will be 10 Starfighters to choose from and 4 maps to fight over, including the long missed Kamino. But when you load up into the beta, you will be able to pick one of 3 available Starfighters and will be duking it out over Fondor.
The Star Wars Battlefront II multiplayer beta ends Oct. 9.
Gamers can play the full version of the game when it releases on Nov. 17 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
