As a first stab by DICE at a Star Wars Battlefront game, 2015's Star Wars Battlefront was impressive but flawed. Over two years of unending galactic conflict, fans have identified several infuriating elements of the experience and, fortunately, DICE has fixed six of the biggest offenders for sequel Star Wars Battlefront 2, which arrives in November of this year. Consider these Star Wars Battlefront bugbears that are fixed for the follow-up.
Battlefront's Death Star DLC lets you attack a Star Destroyer, rescue R2-D2 from Death Star imprisonment and go on a trench run right into the Death Star's vulnerable exhaust port. Observe us do those all those things in this Battlefront Death Star DLC gameplay on Xbox One.
We first played the co-operative version of Star Wars Battlefront's Skirmish mode at Star Wars Celebration, but we also found time to face off against each other in a competitive split-screen round on the planet of Jakku.
Star Wars Battlefront's new, free Skirmish mode finally adds one of the most fan requested features to EA's take on Battlefront: an offline bot match. As in the original Battlefront, it can be played in split screen, both co-operatively and competitively. Suddenly we have a very compelling reason to return to Battlefront. Here's how it looks in action.
This Star Wars Battlefront gameplay shows the new map added in the game's recent Bespin DLC. Home to Lando Calrissian, Cloud City is one of the most iconic locations in the Star Wars universe and it's beautifully replicated here. But how is it as a multiplayer map?
The Oxbox Xmas Challenge Contest 2015 originally included a Star Wars Battlefront challenge in which you had to collect the health pick-up from over the Tattooine Sarlacc pit and survive while being blasted by the other two contestants. When we tried to run the challenge, the health pick-up (previously encountered in the multiplayer beta) never materialised. This is the result of that aborted challenge.
We are brave Stormtroopers in Star Wars Battlefront's Battle of Jakku DLC, whose giant crashed Star Destroyer appears in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, don't you know. Watch us avenge the Death Star in the following gameplay. Never forget! Do it for the Empire!
Star Wars Battlefront's free DLC Battle of Jakku is, among other things, the origin story of the wrecked Star Destroyer from that Force Awakens trailer. You can spot it crashing in the desert in the Graveyard of Giants map. Credit for the crash goes to aristocrat Thane Kyrell and a band of former Imperials, according to Star Wars lore, which is crowded with minor characters who find fame outside of the main movies. With that in mind, Show of the Week salutes five bit players who made it big in Star Wars games.
We are the scrappy Rebels in this Xbox One gameplay from Star Wars Battlefront DLC The Battle of Jakku, which leads into new Star Wars movie The Force Awakens. Can we turn the point in the expansive new Turning Point multiplayer mode?
Time for a rematch between Darth Vader and Han Solo after the Empire Strikes Back confrontation on Cloud City in which Darth embarrassed Solo by stopping his blaster fire with a single hand. Watch as the Sith Lord and smuggling rogue go toe to toe in Star Wars Battlefront's Hero Battles mode.
Princess Leia Organa faces off against iconic Star Wars bounty hunter Boba Fett in an online Hero Battle. Who will be victorious? Will Mike be able to handle Boba's janky jetpack? You can probably guess the answer to that question without even watching the video.
Show of the Week journeys to a galaxy far, far away to appraise the unerringly authentic Star Wars Battlefront and shoot people in some of science fiction's most iconic locations. Later, we rate the Death Star against the other most lethal space megaweapons ever created, in case you're in the market for an orbiting weapon of mass destruction.
According to Star Wars canon, the climactic confrontation between Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader took place on the Death Star. According to this exclusive, never-before-seen footage from Star Wars Battlefront, they clashed again on Hoth. Witness the epic rematch in this Xbox One gameplay video.
Star Wars Battlefront is available now as a 10-hour trial for EA Access members, so Jane and I headed to Endor to check out its magnificent trees, cute indigenous population and deadly deadly lasers. Hit the jump to see me leading a band of AI rebels against Jane's squad of AI stormtroopers in this Xbox One gameplay.
Sullust is the volcano planet inducted into Star Wars canon by Star Wars Battlefront developer DICE: a rocky, geothermal world covered in steam holes and crashed escape pods that need capturing in the following Xbox One gameplay.
The Star Wars Battlefront multiplayer beta is running now and among the selection of modes on offer is Survival: a horde-style multiplayer mode in which you defend against escalating waves of enemies. Andy and I play co-operatively on some backwater planet called Tatooine in this Xbox One gameplay.
Fresh from a laser dogfight over the volcanic planet of Sullust, we talk Star Wars Battlefront's Fighter Squadron mode at Gamescom 2015. Discover the deal with this objective-based multiplayer mode and how to get your hands on the Millennium Falcon in this video from the show.

At E3 2015, Star Wars Battlefront developer DICE revealed Battlefront's Survival Missions: a single-player or co-operative mode with wave-based survival action. Watch on for new Tatooine gameplay from Star Wars Battlefront while the developer explains all.
We're still buzzing from the spectacular Star Wars: Battlefront trailer. That's partly because this 'in-engine footage' looks absolutely stunning but it's also because of the nostalgic, good-time vibes conjured by memories of the original two games, released in the mid-2000s. Here are five reasons they were light years ahead of their time.
Star Wars Battlefront made a splash on Friday with its new trailer, in which speeder bikes race through the forests of Endor, Boba Fett flies around on a jet pack, and Darth Vader menaces dudes with his lightsaber. The hype train is well and truly rolling out of the station, but the combination of DICE and Star Wars means it might well be justified this time. We're optimistic, as long as they avoid seven specific things.
