Star Wars Battlefront to have Dedicated Servers


EA has confirmed that the upcoming Star Wars Battlefront will feature dedicated servers. While at the Tokyo Game Show, senior producer Jamie Keen stated that while the game will not feature a server browser, the game will have dedicated servers in order to give players the best online experience possible.

We’ll still have dedicated servers. Absolutely. It’s one of the hallmarks of making sure we deliver an unparalled online servers for the game.

Keen also revealed some more information about Star Wars Battlefront’s Hero System, where players can take on the role of classic Star Wars characters.

“Our goal was to give an average player around two minutes as a Hero or Villain. But if you’re good enough, you might stretch that to around five minutes. In theory, you could play as Luke Skywalker for a whole match, but that is extremely unlikely. That said, the gauntlet is thrown!”

Star Wars Battlefront will be released in North America on November 17.
