IGN releases all-new gameplay footage from Star Wars Battlefront’s Rogue One: Scariff DLC.
After months of speculation and promotion, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is finally out in theatres, as Lucasfilm launches its first attempt at a feature film spin-off from its main Star Wars episodic saga. Set just before the events of Episode IV – A New Hope, Rogue One tells the story of a ragtag group of rebels who plot to steal the blueprints for The Empire’s soon-to-be super weapon: the infamous Death Star.

With the sheer amount of publicity Rogue One has received over the course of 2016, many film pundits have suggested that the movie may well perform similarly at the box office to The Force Awakens, which would make Disney and Lucasfilm very happy indeed, and act as further encouragement for future anthology films.
Capitalising once again on the films’ popularity, EA and Dice have made sure that Rogue One makes its way to their video game title Star Wars Battlefront in order to bring players the opportunity to play some of the battles (and settings) seen in the movie.
In a recently posted video from IGN, the gaming aficionados show us some brand new Rogue One DLC gameplay, showing off the online multiplayer’s new infiltration mode:
Infiltration sees the player take on a multi-stage gaming experience centred on and around (in space) the planet of Scarif. With the first stage beginning in a space battle, which the developers call “The Approach”, the second stage then moves to “The Distraction” where the conflict resumes on the planet’s surface. The third section, “The Extraction”, involves the stealing of information from the Empire by the Rebels, who must then make a quick escape in a U-wing.
It seems, once again, that Dice has developed a stunningly immersive experience for every Star Wars/Rogue One fan, whether casual or hardcore, giving the player the opportunity to put themselves in the shoes of the Rebels during one of the most turbulent times in the history of the Galaxy far away.
Star Wars Battlefront‘s Rogue One: Scarif update is available for download on PS4, Xbox One and PC now.
