Since its release last year, fans have been asking for offline modes for EA and DICE's Star Wars Battlefront. And now it looks like that's finally happening with the introduction of a couple of them next week. That's right, players will be able to take on popular modes Walker Assault and Fighter Squadron either solo or split-screen co-op. Called Skirmish, this new mode will allow people to battle bots across iconic locations like Hoth and Sullust.
This is great news, as the current offline content in Star War Battlefront is lacking to say the least. This wouldn't have been that big of an issue if the game's Survival mode was more than a fairly pointless horde mode. And outside of a handful of training missions there really isn't much to do without a stable internet connection.
Here's hoping this points to a broader range of offline content for 2017's planned Star Wars Battlefront 2. Like say, Walker Assualt and Fighter Squadron style missions with objectives and basic story content.
