Star Wars Battlefront, despite some of its content issues, is shaping up to be a Star Wars fan’s dream come true. Not only can you play as your favorite characters in the biggest and best battles in the universe, you can also fly your favorite spaceships as well. Today EA and DICE have revealed two more ships you’ll be able to pilot in the final game, both of which are hugely popular among the fanbase.
“I think everyone that’s ever seen Star Wars has had the dream of entering a fight with the legendary, slick starships of Han Solo or Boba Fett,” says Senior Designer Björn Sundell. Those two iconic characters’ even more memorable ships will be featured in the Fighter Squadron mode within Star Wars Battlefront.
The Millennium Falcon and Boba Fett’s Slave I ships will be usable by players who pick up the right item on the Fighter Squadron map. “Once you’re behind the sticks, you’ve only got one spawn at your disposal before you’re back in a regular Rebel or Imperial starship — but the extra speed and firepower of Slave I and the Millennium Falcon will make you extra deadly.”
“One crucial thing to nail when designing the Hero Vehicles is to make players feel truly cool, powerful, and heroic when piloting them. This goes for both the visuals and feel. Playing Star Wars Battlefront, you should get the same feeling that you get when you see the Millennium Falcon swooping by and taking out TIE fighters in the movies.”
Star Wars Battlefront hits PS4, Xbox One, and PC on November 17th.
