With DICE working on Star Wars: Battlefront, some gamers are wondering what type of destruction the Frostbite-powered game will have. But according to DICE Community Manager, Mathew Everett, we shouldn't get too excited over the destruction in Battlefront.

Everett said: "Overall the team is using destruction where it makes sense and is also making sure it stays true to the Star Wars universe. While there is some destruction in the game, Battlefront will not feature large-scale destruction like you see in Battlefield. Trees and other select environmental objects will take damage etc".

 

Personally, I would've loved to have seen some 'large-scale destruction' in a game that will be released towards the end of 2015, and edging into 2016. Especially with how pretty the game looks, it appears as though we'll have stale destruction mechanics. It would've been nice to see those trees react to a vehicle sliding into them, or a huge explosion knocking some trees down. Oh well.
