EA’s DICE highly anticipated Star Wars game, Star Wars Battlefront, had some details that people still wanted to know and EA has answered some of the community questions on their blog especially ones concerning the vehicle spawning mechanic, if the Y-wing will be player controlled or not and if the PC version of the game will feature split-screen.
Also the single player part of Star Wars Battlefront won’t affect your multiplayer progress so no matter how much you play single player, your multiplayer career experience won’t increase but it will grant you credit to buy unlocks.
Q. How do vehicles spawn in Walker Assault?
A: In Walker Assault, vehicles are tied to the power up system. When you find a vehicle power up on the map, you will need to activate it, which immediately spawns you inside the vehicle.
Vehicle power ups specifically must be used within a certain amount of time. This is a design decision to allow more equal distribution of the vehicle power ups amongst all players.
Q. Can I fly the Y-wing?
A: Y-wings are non-player controlled vehicles. They are a support vehicle that you can call into battle within certain game modes.
Q. Is Split-screen available on PC?
A: Split-screen will be available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One only.
Q. Does experience within Missions apply to Multiplayer progression?
A: Playing Missions does not grant you multiplayer career experience, but it does provide you with credit rewards you can spend on buying unlocks.
Being unable to actually fly the Y-wing is an actual bummer but I think it’s still a great feature to call them during the battle and see them come and rain fire on your enemies.
Star Wars Battlefront will launch November 17 for the PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
