Gemstop has released a new Star Wars: Battlefront developer diary from EA’s Dice Studios, talking about the new Fighter Squadron mode which allows for epic 10 vs 10 dogfights, alongside the ships featured in the mode. We get a glimpse of how they recreated the ships from the movies and created a new world for the game. Watch the developer diary embedded above.

As for Battlefront, EA has answered a bunch of fan questions on twitter this week., MakingStarWars has a good roundup, but here are the highlights:

  • Character customization will include both males and females. Racial options will include Twi’leks, Sullustans, Zabraks, Quarren and more.
  • The game will feature 12 maps at launch. In December, EA will add two more maps to the mix with Star Wars: The Force Awakens prequel The Battle of Jakku.
  • While you can’t get in the cockpit of AT-ATs in the game, they will march towards its goal unless they are stopped by the Rebel faction. Empire players will be able to control the AT-AT’s weapons and will be able to call orbital strikes.
  • More player heroes and villains will be revealed soon.
  • Battlefront missions will be available for both online and offline play, but the multiplayer maps will only be available for online play.
