Three New Playable Characters Revealed for Star Wars Battlefront

Last week, fans got to try the beta for Star Wars Battlefront and play as Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader.

Each one had their advantages and disadvantages. But if they weren’t your cup of tea, EA and DICE revealed three more playable characters today!

First up is the Princess of Alderaan herself, Leia! She’ll have plenty of awesome features such as the Trooper Bane (a hard-hitting blaster shot that can destroy an enemy in one hit), Enhanced Squad Shield, and Supply Drop ability.

Plus, when players spawn near her, they’ll spawn as special Alderaan Honor Guards! Never forget.

The next character is Han Solo, that scoundrel. He’ll come with special abilities like Rapid Fire (firing as much as possible without overheating for a certain duration), Lucky Shot (effective against vehicles), and the Shoulder Charge Power (remember when he rushes the Stormtroopers in A New Hope? Yup).

Lastly, Emperor Palpatine, in all his sinister glory. He will have Force Lightning, Force Dash, and also be able to provide power-ups for his teammates.

Star Wars Battlefront will be available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on November 17th.
