Electronic Arts and DICE have announced “Blast,” the Team Deathmatch mode within Star Wars Battlefront.
Blast pits Rebel and Imperial factions against each other in 10-versus-10 battles. If your team reaches 100 kills, or you’re ahead when the 10-minute round is over, you’ve won.
Maps in Blast mode are not as vast as in other game modes. Each map is specifically designed for the game mode in mind, and “aren’t just smaller versions of maps used elsewhere.”
“Say you’ve just played Walker Assault mode on Hoth and then switched to Blast, still on Hoth,” said lead level designer Dennis Brannvall. “Thanks to variations in lighting and time of day, you’ll definitely see a difference.”
You’ll find weapon pickups strewn across the map. And there are no vehicles or “Heroes” and “Villains” characters that can join the fight.
Star Wars Battlefront is due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on November 17.
