1. Playable "Heroes"
The upcoming installment of the next Star Wars game will let you play as a handful of "hero" characters. Darth Vader and Bobba Fett are some of the original trilogy players that can be unlocked.
2. No prequel era
Don't expect to see many call-backs to the prequel trilogy. It's obvious that the developers of Star Wars: Battlefront are keeping their focus on the original trilogy and the future of the franchise.
3. No Campaign Mode
Star Wars: Battlefront will be without one major gaming mode when it's released: a single player campaign. Bummer? Kinda, yeah. But if you like to play alone, there's an offline solo mode to hone your skills in.
4. 40-player battles will be epic
One of the improved gameplay features is huge battles that will involve up to 40 players. You'll feel like you're actually in the Star Wars universe!
5. Fly high
TIE fighters, X-wings and the majestic beast that made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs, the Millennium Falcon, are all flyable crafts in Star Wars: Battlefront.
6. Bon voyage, space battles
Space battles from Star Wars: Battlefront II are a thing of the past. Too bad, right? You'll be stuck to planet-based battles in this installment.
7. Release date confirmed
The anticipation for all-new Star Wars content is keeping us on the edge of our seats, but the wait is almost over. Battlefront will be released on PS4 and Xbox One on Nov. 19.
8. Crafted missions
With a lack of campaign mode in Battlefront, the game will focus instead on crafted missions. These missions can be played alone, online co-op or a split screen.
9. Star Wars: Battlefront looks gorgeous
The trailer that dropped at the Star Wars Celebration in April used actual game footage in tease. The worlds of Endor and Hoth look as good as any next-gen game around.
10. Four planets confirmed
A handful of familiar worlds will be gracing the gameplay of Star Wars: Battlefront. Endor, Hoth and Tattoine return from the original trilogy, while a new world Sullust will be introduced.
11. Equal opportunity Stroomtroopers
According to the game's developers, you're able to play as a male or female stormtrooper in the upcoming edition.
12. Hop on and destroy
Not only have the locations for the battles in Star Wars: Battlefront been revealed, so have the vehicles you can ascertain while battling. On Endor, gamers can hop on speed bikes and AT-ATs. On Hoth, try riding a snow speeder.
13. First AND third person mode
Gamers will have their druthers when it comes to which style of shooter they want to play as. You'll be able to switch freely between first and third person view.
14. Free DLC
Die-hard Star Wars fans can get their fix on a new planet by preordering Battlefront. If you do, you'll get the Battle of Jakku DLC a week earlier than the Dec. 8 release.
15. Everyone's favorite droids will make an appearance
R2-D2 and C-3PO will continue to be a major influence in all of Star Wars, and that includes video games. The droids will reportedly have some kind of role in Battlefront.
