Star Wars Battlefront’s E3 Gameplay Won’t Be What Was Shown at Celebration; X-Wing Picture Released

Star Wars Battlefront will be heavily featured at E3, and Community Manager Mathew Everett is continuing to give information about the game on Reddit.

First of all, while we’re finally going to see actual gameplay at E3, it won’t be what fans were shown behind closed doors at Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim, which will forever remain exclusive to that event (unless someone leaks it, I guess).

That gameplay was an exclusive for the show and will remain an exclusive.

Everett also talked about possible PC requirements, hinting that that they might be different from the latest Battlefield games.

With the Frostbite engine and the inclusion of full PBR, the game isn’t just like Battlefield Hardline or Battlefield 4. Once the team has the game into its Beta phase, they can start testing the game on 100’s if not thousands of PC systems and find the minimum spec required to run the game. It might end up being the same as Battlefield Hardline or even Battlefield 4. But until those tests can take place, we can’t commit to specs / details.
Being a fairly hardcore PC gamer, I want to know the specs as well. But… my PC is powerful, so not worried. But I know you guys are and want to get you that info as soon as we can.

Finally, we get to see a really spiffy render of an X-wing, published on Facebook. If it’s like the previous images of this sort, it’s a game asset rendered outside of the game in the Frostbite engine. You can check it out at the top of the post.
