We already know Star Wars Battlefront won’t feature a multiplayer server browser, but will depend on a skill-based matchmaking system.
Design Director Niklas Fegraeus provided more information on the matter, and how the team will use it to “ensure that people have a fair and even playground.”
“The nature of the matchmaker that we have is to just ensure that people have a fair and even playground. That’s the thing. We want all Star Wars fans to be able to play this game and have a good time, and in doing that, we want to make sure that whenever players jump in, they get matchmade to players of their own level, their own skill, so they can have fun and a fair playing field. That’s a really important thing when it comes to the quality of experience for the wide audience of Star Wars fans out there.”
If this matchmaking system works correctly and efficiently, then newbies and low-skilled players matched up against advanced and professional ones will be a rare sight.
Star Wars Battlefront is set to launch on November 17 for the PS4, Xbox One and PC, with the Beta starting on October 8th.
