Star Wars: Battlefront’s Absolutely Badass Stormtrooper Image Revealed; it’s a Rendered In-Game Asset (UPDATED)

on April 15, 2015 5:22 PM

Electronic Arts has been teasing the picture of a Stormtrooper from Star Wars: Battlefront for a few days on its Instagram account, and with the latest post the image is finally complete.

We put all the tiles together for you, and you can check the full picture below.

According to Community Manager Mathew Everett, it’s an actual  in-game asset rendered for the reveal.

Yes, this is an in-game asset rendered out for this early reveal.

This means that that the game won’t look this good, but the in-game version will still be based on the same model and texture, probably losing the perfect anti-aliasing, while lighting might be different as well.

Can Star Wars: Battlefront really look close to this level of detail? We’ll possibly know in a couple of days, when the first trailer will premiere at the Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim.

Interestingly, there has been some discussion among the community on the actual identity of the trooper, and Everett confirmed that it’s not a Space Trooper as some argued.

This is not a space trooper.

Update: apparently the last tile really didn’t include anything special, despite the fact that it was mostly empty space, with just a small portion of a shoulder pad.

If you want to check out all the individual tiles posted by EA, you can find them below.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
