Team Deathmatch is always a popular game-mode in multiplayer games and “Star Wars Battlefront” will offer a 20 person kill-fest when it launches later this year.
EA teased new information on the game-mode earlier today, and yes, the game-mode will simply be Rebel and Imperial factions fighting to the death. The battles will be 10v10 with a 100 kill limit to win. If neither team hits 100 kills in the 10 minute timeframe, then whichever team has the highest score will be declared the winner. It’s a pretty basic setup.
It won’t be called TDM in Star Wars Battlefront though, it will instead be called “Blast” and the official posting stated that the game-mode will offer, “a lot of variety both in terms of gameplay and the unpredictable nature of the opposing team.” The post went on say that, “actual levels within the mode also happen to hold great variation as well.”
Lead Level Designer of Star Wars Battlefront, Dennis Brännvall, also talked about the game saying, “One battle you’ll be fighting within interior levels on Endor or Sullust.” Brännvall went on to say, “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.”
Blast maps will be smaller than the other maps, which makes sense since only 20 people will be playing at a time if the teams are full. Each map will be custom made for Blast, they won’t just be smaller versions of the larger maps, even though they may take place in the same world.
“Say you’ve just played Walker Assault mode on Hoth and then switched to Blast, still on Hoth. Thanks to variations in lighting and time of day, you’ll definitely see a difference,” Brännvall explained.
The game is set to launch on November 17, 2015. Pre-ordering one of the editions of the game will get you free DLC and goodies.
