Star Wars: Battlefront PS4 PlayStation 4

Shocking news: DICE will show the first official gameplay footage from Star Wars: Battlefront at E3 2015 next month. Writing as part of a long – but padded – blog post, design director Niklas Fegraeus confirmed the snippet, stating that the studio has "great plans" for the Los Angeles-based convention. We expect the game will appear at both EA and Sony's press conferences.

Elsewhere, the developer alluded to the title's 'Fighter Squadron' mode, which we apparently got a taste of during the title's first trailer when an X-Wing was shown chasing a Tie-Fighter over a canyon. While the company refrained from sharing any specifics about this, it's safe to assume that it will see you engaging in dogfights above a particular planet's atmosphere.

Remember, the release will not feature any space battles – but we reckon that we could settle for some Warhawk-esque aerial skirmishes. Which iconic aircraft are you most looking forward to piloting? Shoot us down in the comments section below.
