This third-person action game holds with the Metroidvania approach to balancing action and exploration. Armed with a lightsaber and the Force, players assume the role of former Jedi Padawan Cal Kestis. Along the way Cal will acquire new abilities that will allow him to reach areas that were previously inaccessible. There isn’t anything here that reinvents the wheel, but it doesn’t need to.

To be clear, this is a reboot of the Star Wars Battlefront subseries than launched in 2004 with a game of the same name. This 2015 title reflects the new Star Wars mythology that came about after Lucas Arts was acquired by Disney. An action-shooter that can be played in either first or third person, Battlefront is really geared toward the multiplayer experience. This is seen in the wealth of modes and maps available. Multiplayer games can accommodate up to 40 players.
