Star Wars Battlefront Adds Offline Single Player and Co-op Modes

Star Wars Battlefront launched late last year to a fairly underwhelming reception. The online-only game surely hit hard with Star Wars fans, but the lack of single player content held it back from reaching many gamers’ wishlists.

EA have listened to player feedback and finally, on 20 July, are adding a single player mode to the roster of gameplay options.

The new mode is entitled “Skirmish” and allows players to play offline either solo or with a friend in local co-op, facing off against AI bots. The Skirmish option will be available in existing Walker Assault and Fighter Squadron modes, and can be played over a variety of difficulty options.

The co-op split screen option will only be available on PS4 and Xbox One.

There will also be new in-game events added to the online aspect of the game added via a free update, including more Hutt Contracts, new weapons and rewards for players.

Star Wars Battlefront‘s third DLC expansion pack, Death Star, is set to hit in September, which adds new maps, new weapons and two new heroes.
