Just as promised, DICE and EA will soon deliver a new offline setting for their Star Wars shooter that will let fans battle it out solo or split-screen against bots.
“Skrimish” mode, as it’s called, will hit Star Wars Battlefront on July 20 and will include two game types that can be played offline at any difficulty: Walker Assault and Fighter Squadron. Here’s the blurb from DICE’s latest news update:
Today we’re excited to officially announce a new mode, Skirmish, for all Star Wars Battlefront players.
The new mode will be available starting July 20 and offers players the option to play offline against bots in a solo mission or with a friend using co-op split screen. (Console only) Skirmish can be played on a difficulty level of your choosing and across two modes, Walker Assault and Fighter Squadron. With multiple locations that span the galaxy, from the frozen planet of Hoth to the lava encrusted planet of Sullust, we hope Skirmish brings players a new way to enjoy Star Wars Battlefront.
Looking forward to new maps, weapons, Star Cards, and heroes? DICE says Star Wars Battlefront’s Death Star DLC will arrive in September and that fans can get a sneak peak of the new content on July 16 at 11AM PDT during Star Wars Celebration Europe.
