Inevitably, some Star Wars: Battlefront players havethrough the game's files, and they've discovered a few new Hero characters and a new game mode.
Han Solo and Princess Leia will both be playable, to no one's great surprise given that the game skews towards celebrating the original trilogy more than the prequels, but it's the presence of the Emperor that excites me. You just can't go wrong with a bit of Force Lightning.
Alongside those characters comes news of a new mode called Hero Hunt. No details on what it will consist of just yet, but I'd assume it will feature maybe a few players as the heroes, with everyone else trying to hunt them down. Possibly respawning as a Hero themselves if they take one down.
The Beta itself kicks off later today, at 9AM PST/ 6PM BST. See you on Hoth!
