Star Wars: Battlefront release date leaked

Plus 10 seconds of in-game footage and a screenshot.  

Star Wars: Battlefront's release date has been leaked as 17th November, 2015.

The release date was discovered on the source code of the game's official site. AllGamesBeta and Videogamer both snagged screencaps of it before it was removed. The source code read: "The latest news and updates for Star Wars Battlefront. Available November 17, 2015 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC."

This is in keeping with what we already knew about EA targeting a "holiday 2015" release.

Furthermore, roughly 10 seconds of Star Wars: Battlefront gameplay footage was teased following the amazing new Star Wars: Episode 7 trailer. Check it out at the 1.48 mark below.

Wow, Chewie looks great for his age!

At a glance that may look like CGI, but the game's lead level designer Dennis Brännvall confirmed that it's in-game footage. "I'm going to answer a question in advance: Yes, that is actually what the game looks like," he stated on Twitter. "That's not CGI," he added..

And finally, the first screenshot of Star Wars: Battlefront was revealed (via AllGamesBeta). Feast your eyes on video games' latest rendition of Endor's forested moon:


A full Star Wars: Battlefront reveal is scheduled for tomorrow at 6.30pm UK time.
