New Game Mode: Why all the SECRETS about the details EA/DICE?
An unidentified large scale game mode based on capturing command posts and ultimately bringing down capital ships is set to appear in DICE's Star Wars Battlefront II and will accompany content from the Clone Wars era. It was initially going to be released in February, but was delayed to March.
The upcoming large scale game mode has been described as "non-linear" and a "sandbox." It will feature command posts that can be captured and capital ships that can be attacked and destroyed. Fights can take place in the interiors of these capital ships, which include a Galactic Republic Venator-class Star Destroyer and a Separatist Providence-class Dreadnought.
The unidentified large scale game mode will be playable on Geonosis: Trippa Hive, which, unlike other large-scale ground maps in the game, was designed with the new mode in mind rather than Galactic Assault. It is currently unknown if this mode will be playable on any other maps when it launches in March 2019, but snippets of code in the game files suggest that Naboo: Theed and Tatooine: Mos Eisley may be other maps that this mode will be playable on. The only map that has been officially confirmed is Trippa Hive.
Based on the description of the game mode, it sounds to be the same as, if not very similar to, Conquest from the original Star Wars: Battlefront games by Pandemic Studios and the Battlefield games also developed by DICE. This mode is also very loosely similar to Supremacy from DICE's Star Wars Battlefront. It also seems to be very similar to another game mode developed by DICE for their Battlefield series, Titan mode, as seen in Battlefield 2142.
Titan mode was later recreated in the Naval Strike DLC expansion for Battlefield 4 in the form of Carrier Assault. The game mode was internally referred to as "Titan" in the game's files, which was discovered by dataminers in the Battle of Geonosis Update, another hint at it being similar to Titan mode from Battlefield 2142.
What's the name of this new game mode?
Will ground to space transport be a cut scene or user controlled?
How many maps will it have at launch?
Will this game mode cover all the eras?
Do you spawn on command posts?
Can you play it offline?
How many players will transports carry?
Will Hero starfighters be involved?
Can we steal the opponents transports or starfighters?
What is the max player count?
Revealing ALL the answers to the above questions before March first would still keep the surprise element going while hyping the new game mode for an entire month! Waiting until a couple days before it's release is not only bad marketing but also creates no excitement because we literally have so little details right now.
PLEASE give us this information so we tell all our friends how awesome this update is once it drops. I really feel this game mode is what fans have wanted most to experience since the launch of this game over a year ago. May the force be with you, always.
