Star Wars Battlefront was announced as a reboot of the video game series, while focusing on capturing the look of the films. It intends to replicate the world of Star Wars to the last detail, from the main sceneries to all the game assets.
Several game previews and teasers that have been shown along these last 2 years reveal flawless game graphics and realistic maps that take you back to the epic places you visited in the Star Wars film saga. This realistic representation is being achieved with high level artwork, along with the powerful Frostbite game engine. Objects and characters are physically proportional, while revealing great attention to detail. They also react to weather effects, according to the climate conditions of each planet. PBR (Physical Based Rendering), a rendering technology that effectively emulates the physical behavior of light when it hits a surface, is also a great contribution to achieve a realistic world. Lighting becomes a main part of the palette, along with detailed textures and authentic colors.
This perfect emulation of reality will definitely be a plus, allowing the player to completely dive into the real Star Wars world. Who doesn't want to take down a imperial walker? What will happen when a Stormtrooper encounters Luke Skywalker? Or when a Rebel Soldier turns the corner and sees Darth Vader? It's not about imagining what it could be, but to live a real world experience through the eyes of iconic Star Wars characters.
Star Wars Battlefront promises to be the next big thing, but like Han Solo would say, "Never tell me the odds".
