According to IGN, Star Wars Battlefront will not include a single-player story campaign of any kind. Instead, it will feature missions than can be played solo, online or via split-screen cooperative multiplayer.
Yes, the new Battlefront game has split-screen.
No Campaign in Star Wars Battlefront! What Does It Have Then?
General manager of DICE Patrick Bach explained the available game modes in more detail.
“I would say they occupy that space…where you play alone, or you can play co-op, split screen or on the internet. The game is first and foremost a multiplayer game. Battlefront was a multiplayer game. That’s the game we wanted to create — to recreate the battles of the Original Trilogy.”
That explains why there’s no traditional single-player campaign. It is promised that the missions are bite-sized, repeatable on multiple difficulties and are heavily inspired by “Star Wars battle fantasies.”
Okay DICE, now you have our full attention.
