Star Wars: Battlefront is an action shooter and the third main game in the Star Wars: Battlefront series. It is considered a reboot of the franchise and it is set during the Galactic Civil War. Based on the Star Wars movies, it focuses on large-scale battles between Stormtroopers of the Empire and soldiers of the Alliance, rather than Sith versus Jedi. This approach is similar to the concept of the earlier games, but this title largely removes the single-player campaign in favour of more multiplayer modes, incorporating some elements of the Battlefield series the developer is known for.
The game was launched with maps based on four locations: Endor, Hoth, Sullust and Tatooine. In December 2015 two maps were added for free set on Jakku, a new location to coincide with the release of the movie Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Unlike the Battlefield games it is not class based. Players choose a side and get to control soldiers, Snow Speeders, AT-ATs, X-Wings and Tie-Fighters in matches on large battlefields. Players choose between the Rebel Alliance or the Galactic Empire for each game, with differences for the pick-ups and power-ups that are then available to each faction during matches. These provides auto-firing turrets or droids, a thermal imploder or vehicles. Hero pick-ups let players become famous Star Wars heroes such as Boba Fett, Darth Vader, Emperor Palpatine, Han Solo, Leia Organa and Luke Skywalker for a short time, with unique abilities. There are also hero vehicles such as the Millennium Falcon and the Slave I.
