Star Wars Battlefront – which was mentioned recently in a somewhat negative way after realizing that it will not receive nor the Battlelog, neither a server browser on any of the three platforms – got a new system detailed to us by Electronic Arts and DICE. Although we have already seen Darth Vader (and not the limited edition PlayStation 4 one) and Luke Skywalker, this Hero system was detailed.
Luke Skywalker is one of several playable Heroes in Star Wars Battlefront, and fans of Star Wars will recognize his Star Wars: Episode VI: Return of the Jedi look: dark clothes, gloved right hand, and his self-crafted green Lightsaber.
Luke is an acrobatic character, and he is also able to use the Force . His movement is varied and powerful, featuring a wide-sweeping, heavy attack with his Lightsaber that can take out large groups of enemies. For more distant targets, the Force Push is a gratifying move that will send Imperial troops flying, and Saber Rush lets you use the Force to propel yourself extremely quickly for a lightning-fast attack. You’ll get to step into Luke’s boots if you locate a pickup for the character. But be aware: your time as a Hero or Villain is limited, as your health will constantly decrease. You are able to extend that time and health by killing enemies though.
The game is going to launch on November 17 (PS4, X1, PC).,
