EA DICE’s Star Wars Battlefront is getting a new mode, called Skirmish, which you will be able to play offline.
The mode will put you against bots on solo missions or “with a friend using co-op split screen,” however, the split screen feature will only be available for console players. Skirmish will offer you two separate offline modes to choose from, Walker Assault and Fighter Squadron.
The new mode will be available starting July 21 and offers players the option to play offline against bots in a solo mission or with a friend using co-op split screen. (Console only) Skirmish can be played on a difficulty level of your choosing and across two modes, Walker Assault and Fighter Squadron. With multiple locations that span the galaxy, from the frozen planet of Hoth to the lava encrusted planet of Sullust, we hope Skirmish brings players a new way to enjoy Star Wars Battlefront.
The studio continued to talk about its upcoming plans for the game, and they include ” more free in-game events planned for the summer,” then a “third digital expansion pack” in September.
If an offline mode isn’t for you, we have more free* in-game events planned for the summer. Look forward to more Hutt Contracts for new weapons, log-in reward opportunities, and open trials to experience Bespin.
Then in September, Season Pass holders will receive our third digital expansion pack, Star Wars™ Battlefront™ Death Star. More new maps – on ground and in space – new weapons and Star Cards and two new heroes including one larger-than-life character we know you’ve been patiently waiting for.
The offline Skirmish mode will be available starting from July 21.
