    Someone has finally leaked what many people have been waiting for, gameplay footage of the newly announced Star Wars: Battlefront Fighter Squadron mode DICE promised they would be adding to multiplayer as a standalone game mode. Lucky gamers got to play the mode firsthand and Gamescom 2015 and one even went as far as to record the gameplay. The footage can be seen below:

    Fighter Squadron will have 10 vs.10 players, with an additional 20 ships being controlled by AI for a total of 40 on-screen at any given time. The gameplay in the video is being played on a Playstation 4 at a very smooth framerate.

    You can see the player piloting an X-Wing on the volcanic planet while plumes of ash cloud the sky. These ash clouds can be used to the player's advantage to escape enemies tailing them. The ship seems to be very easy to maneuver as the player stays right behind a TIE fighter with ease, never losing sight of it. In a recent Q&A on Twitter, EA revealed the game mode would feature "hero" ships such as Han Solo's Millennium Falcon and Jango Fett's Slave.


    They also stated the AI would not be too difficult to take out for players, which means newcomers to the series should have an easy time taking them out. Also confirmed for release during the Q&A were customization options for the character of your choice, which will be limited to designs that will stay true to the Star Wars universe. EA also promised plenty of customization and weapon unlocks among other things meant to keep players busy giving them something to work towards.

    Star Wars: Battlefront releases on Xbox One, Playstation 4 and PC November 17th 2015.

    I really do miss the space battles, they could have really taken it away too, added comets or black holes or quasars within the fields randomly to throw off the tides of games. But none the less I'm still waiting on confirmation that I can become a Jedi dammit #BeastModePending.....

      You can switch bewteen first and third. He just stuck to third.
    4. VinnyHaw
      Yeah, but when you're the only one playing in first you put yourself at a huge disadvantage. It would be nice if they had a fist person only mode and you had to rely on the window and a radar.

    This game mode looks alright and the customization should be cool.

    Looks kinda interesting.. but not the best as Vino said "They could've taken the effort used to make this and put in space battles instead." which I think would have made this so much better.

    Of: Wish they leaked some F4 content..
