Star Wars: Battlefront Beta Files Contain Hero Hunt Mode, Han Solo And Princess Leia
The Star Wars: Battlefront beta is live and we will have a full write-up for you early next week on how the game is.
Some of those who are playing the Battlefront have done some digging in the beta files on PC and discovered a few gems.
TheeUberMedic tells you that if you want to find this information on PC, players can “find the location of the folder which is in program files, origin games, and battlefront, click on the data folder, then the win32 folder.”
You have to locate the file called “characters.sb” and make yourself at home with it. In there you’ll find files for the aforementioned characters.
In another file “/data/challenges/forest_chapter_25_herobattle” there is a suggestion of a new mode that hasn’t been revealed yet, called Hero Hunt.
The second reddit link from radgamerdan also has posted links to Soundcloud files which feature voice overs for Han Solo, Leia, The Emperor and additional characters such as Boba Fett.
I seriously hope that Hero Hunt is the real deal, because I’ve been playing the beta and in there the game’s menu shows the modes that are still to come. I was quietly sulking to myself that in Star Wars: Battlefront 2, which I played on PSP, I could play an awesome mode that contained only the Heroes and Villains as playable characters.
Battlefront would be crazy not to have a mode that let you play as the iconic Star Wars characters more often and just for fun.
