No Bothan spies needed: Gamers are already leaking footage of Star Wars Battlefront ahead of its November release.
EA recently launched a closed Alpha testing period for a select number of gamers who were lucky enough to apply and get in. But it wasn’t long before these Rebel spies began sharing details about the game, and a few even leaked videos online of what the game looks like now.

Most of the videos (at least the ones I found) have already been taken down by EA. It seems like the only levels that are playable right now are the Tatooine and Hoth maps, which we’ve already seen in the footage from E3.
However, there’s still plenty of new information that’s coming to the surface. Players have revealed a list of weapons in the game, including the E11, A280, DH17, DL44, DLT19, DLT20a, EE3, Rocket Launcher, SE14c, and the T21. Although t’s unclear if all these weapons were playable to the alpha, the download file appears to confirm them. However, there are some reports that some of these weapons may only be exclusive to the iconic playable characters, like Boba Fett, Darth Vader or Luke Skywalker.
There was also a list of vehicles released. Battlefront reportedly includes the T-65 X-wing, the Tie Fighter, Lambda Shuttle, Y-wing, Tie-Bomber, Corellian Corvette, Nebulon B Frigate, Imperial Star Destroyer, Mon Calamari Capital Ship Home One, AT-ST, AT-AT, Tie Interceptor, 74-Z Speeder Bike.
The rest of the leaks cover some secondary details, like the fact that the Tatooine map appears to have dawn and midday versions. Players can also activate emotive actions within their soldiers, such as an SOS signal or a round of applause.
It should be noted that none of this is confirmed to be in the game’s final version, which launches Nov. 17 on Xbox One, PS4 and PC. However, it’s hard not to get excited about the possibilities herein. Will every map have different versions? What will piloting an Imperial Star Destroyer be like?
Stay tuned for more details about Battlefront as we approach its release this fall.
