Here’s What Makes Star Wars Battlefront’s Leia, Han, And Palpatine Special

If you played in the Star Wars Battlefront beta, you may have had the chance to take control of Luke Skywalker or Darth Vader. Those aren’t the only two heroes (and villains) joining the fight, though.

Today, EA and DICE have detailed what to expect from Leia Organa, Han Solo, and Emperor Palpatine. Each plays differently, with their own special skills.

Leia is a support hero, helping rebel troops hold the line. Rebels that spawn near her will do so as Alderaan Honor Guards.

Supernatural Spaghetti Western Hard West Arrives November 4

Sure, the old west was dirty, lawless, and rife with illness. But it’s the demons that were the real problem.

about X hours ago from

People aren’t just coming to Star Wars Battlefront for the gameplay. They want to relive the Star Wars experience.

As we’ve watched the game’s evolution, it’s become clear that EA and DICE aren’t aiming for the depth of the Battlefield series. Much of Battlefront’s gameplay is streamlined for accessibility, and with an enormous license and faithful following, that makes sense.
