    EA teased a game mode reveal for the upcoming Star Wars Battlefront on Twitter yesterday, and now it's here:

    "Star Wars Battlefront’s Team Deathmatch mode, Blast, pits the Rebel and Imperial factions against each other with intense 10 versus 10 battles. If your team reaches 100 kills, or are ahead when the 10-minute round is over, you’ve won. Immediate, addictive, and exciting until the very last kill; that is our ambition with Blast."

    Team deathmatch is a classic game mode, usually always added as a part of the multiplayer experience in most fps games. Lead Level Designer Dennis Brännvall explains their take on the core game mode:

    "One battle you’ll be fighting within interior levels on Endor or Sullust. In the next battle, you might find yourselves among Tatooine’s dusty canyons, or inside the undeniably cool Ice Caves on Hoth. My favorite is the verticality of Tatooine, fighting by the Sandcrawler."

    He also specifies that the maps are smaller than those used in other modes, to keep the close quarter fights heated. However, they are not smaller versions of other maps, but specifically designed for Blast. The lack of vehicles and Heroes & Villains will make weapon pickups a crucial part of the strategy needed to win these matches, and they are placed to make the game tactical.

    Described as "the core of the game’s multiplayer mode", this might be disappointing news for some Star Wars Battlefront fans, as the lack of space battles seem to really grind their gears.

    Smaller maps can go either way with the fans. Personally, I prefer medium to smaller maps just so I may learn the landscape easily and more quickly.

    This simply isn't looking like a BattleFront game at all... Extremely disappointing.

    EA are effectively trying to make money just off of the community's love for SWBF2. They are ruining a franchise, and honestly I predicted this. Money Wars: Battlefield 3.

    TRYING TO COPY STAR WARS BATTLEFRONT 2 FROM OLD GEN OR WHAT
    1. Durva
      LOL no where near it, can't copy if there is no galatic conquest, space battles, lack of planets or fully controllable vehicles

    First we hear about the AT-AT being on rails, then no space battles, then no galactic conquest, then no story based singleplayer, then all the news given at E3 including the stupid snow speeder minigame & the fact the game will be a casual shooter in which anyone can play..... And now there boasting the most basic gamemode for any shooter?

    Pre-Order cancelled.
    Maybe I'll try it in 2 or 3 years to come when I see it on the bargain shelf. Until then I would rather invest in a PS2 with the true Star Wars Battlefront.

      Always do. So satisfying..

      Don't knock it until you played it though. I think it looks good. Opinions are only opinions.

      Sorry but from everything they have said it is looking like a downgrade from Battlefront 1&2

    I think this game will turn out worse than people expected. Like watchdogs, but it will still be a decent game.

      So true... I hope this statement will be wrong when it comes out, but everyone was hyped for Watchdogs, and then it turned into a piece of garbage.

    I think they're going to destroy Star Wars.

    Everything EA touches turns to utter ****.
