There's no answer or reason to why the PC version of Star Wars: Battlefront will not feature split-screen support, so here's hoping there's enough waves made from PC gamers that DICE and EA hear the noise and include it. Especially with more and more gamers enjoying their PC games on their big screen TVs.

DICE also said that Missions don't grant players multiplayer career experience, but they will be providing gamers with credits that can be used towards buying unlocks. The developer has also talked about Battlefront's Walker Assault mode, where they said: "In Walker Assault, vehicles are tied to the power up system. When you find a vehicle power up on the map, you will need to activate it, which immediately spawns you inside the vehicle. Vehicle power ups specifically must be used within a certain amount of time. This is a design decision to allow more equal distribution of the vehicle power ups amongst all players".
