More news is pouring in regarding Star Wars Battlefront. This time, DICE has confirmed that there will not be classes or squads in the game.
I found the information on GamesRadar, but it comes from the latest issue of OXM. Players will be able to freely pick different weapons or gear, rather than being confined to a pre-determined class. You'll be able to unlock and then use whatever weapon or gear you want using the game's XP system.
Battlefield titles have often used "squads", but DICE confirmed that they won't be in Battlefront. Instead, we're being given a new "Partners" feature that links two players together so that they can easily see each other on their respective HUD & then spawn on the other player when they'd like. Even more interesting, the "Partners" feature allows for you to share whatever you've unlocked in the game. Teaming up with a partner who has better gear than you? You'll have access to their suite of weapons, gear, etc.
What do you guys think of the new changes announced? I'm definitely a fan, but looking forward to hearing your feedback!
