EA and DICE have today revealed a new mode for Star Wars Battlefront called ‘Supremacy’. Consider it an all-out clash on huge maps with ground troops, vehicles, Heroes and Villains, all the while fighting for control points, Conquest style.
“Supremacy centers on five control points scattered across the map. The objective is gaining control of all five, or the majority of them, before the 10 minute round is over. Each team starts the match controlling two of these control points, initially fighting for control of the fifth one in the center. After this is determined, the control points need to be claimed in a set order. This means the action will be taking place on two control points at a time – one for each team,” reads the blog post published today, August 13th.
in the video below, the guys at Star Wars HQ, a Battlefront fan site explain in excited fashion, what they think of the new mode.
Most vehicle types will be available on the battlefield, including walkers, speeders, X-wings and TIE fighters. Not only that, but expect established Star Wars characters to show up and help control the map.
“Using a character like Darth Vader to secure control points is great, as he can take increased damage before going down. Luke Skywalker and Boba Fett are great for moving swiftly between attacking and defensive positions, and giving you the edge against opponents in battle,”Lead Level Designer Dennis Brännvall explained.
He continues “Supremacy is a game mode that will excite fans of the Conquest mode from Battlefield. That said, we’ve made several tweaks to improve the formula. You will always spawn close to the action when you enter Supremacy, so you’ll never feel isolated from the fight. By focusing on one key point at a time, players not playing the objective and camping on a hill somewhere will be a rare sight.”
