Since its November 2015 release, Star Wars Battlefront has been popular among fans but it still drew a lot of criticism. A lot of players expressed their disappointment about Battlefront's lack of single-player mode that could be played online. The game has been stictly multiplayer since its release, but things are about to change next week.
EA has announced that beginning July 20, players will have the chance to play single-player or split-screen co-op in a new mission called "Skirmish". In this new mode, only available for consoles, you can play by yourself or with another player against bots in either Fighter Squadron o Walker Assault modes on various planets.
While single-player modes are fine additions to the game, many players are still looking for a more story-driven campaign experience. EA addressed this issue back in May, and promises to "cure going forward".
Star Wars Celebration Europe will start on Friday, so we'll surely know more about Battlefront and other Star Wars games at the panel. The EW Star Wars panel will begin on Saturday at 7 p.m. BST/ 2 p.m. EDT on the Celebration stage and it will be streamed live on The Star Wars Show Live.
