Da DICE fornylig fortalte om deres kommende Star Wars Battlefront Beta, blev der også nævnt nogle nye game modes. En af dem er Drop Zone, som de nu har fortalt lidt mere om.

Drop Zone er meget ala King of the Hill. Her gælder det om for 2 hold af 8 personer, at indtage 5 pods. Runden er begrænset til 10 min. Så det hold der har indtaget og holdt på pods længest, vinder runden. Imens et hold står og venter ved en pod vil den åbne sig. Her kan man så nyde godt af diverse Power Pickups.

“When you locate a drop pod’s landing site, make your way to it and trigger the short claim process. Your team will win if it captures five pods, or control the majority of them after the 10-minute match is up. If a pod is constantly changing possession with no team able to defend it long enough to claim it, another pod will be sent down to break the stalemate. Then, there would be two pods that the teams have to gain control over.”

“Claiming pods comes with another perk: they contain Power Pickups. Once successfully claimed, the pod will start to open. This will take a moment, but staying around to get your hands on the contents can definitely be worth the risk. The choice is yours, though; when your claimed pod is opening up, another one will hit the surface elsewhere and going for that one could be the smarter move.”

Et af de problemer der som oftes melder sig, når man taler multiplayer, er camping. Her mener Lead Level Designer, Dennis Brännvall, at spillet er ment til at være en hurtig shooter hvor man holder sig igang. Derfor vil man ikke få noget ud af camping.

[quote]“This goes hand in hand with our design philosophy behind many of the game modes in Star Wars Battlefront, we’re promoting the idea of a fast, action-packed game where you need to be mobile and think on your feet. Camping doesn’t really pay off.”[/quote]

Star Wars Battlefront udkommer d. 17 November på Xbox One, PS4 og PC. Betaen kommer til Oktober.
