Star Wars: Battlefront

Another big piece of news was Battlefront, for which we got a trailer and a heap of info – you can watch the trailer HERE

The game allows you to play missions in the classic trilogy era, with Hoth and Endor taking a big part in the trailer. The game, which looks gorgeous, allows you to take control of soldiers, vehicles and fanys characters in these scenes.

The game has no campaign to speak if, which I found a little disappointing having grown up in the great original stories of the dark forces/Jedi knight series games and others, but rather gives you missions in both sides of the conflict in these scenarios.

The Canon of these missions are a little dubious, it seems the broad strokes if the story are ‘fact, but the way you play probably isn’t.

The game also adds two new locations, Sullust, which is interpreted as a volcanic planet home to the Empire’s military factories and (to be released as free DLC) Jakku, the desert planet shown in the trailer – I’m hoping to play the scene where they crashed that Star Destroyer!!

The game is released on November 17th

Agents of SHIELD: SHIELD Facilities (3)

The Sandbox

The Sandbox was a facility designed to research dangerous compounds including alien artefacts. When SHIELD recovered the Chitauri helmet spreading an alien infection the item was ordered to be sent to the facility

The base also dealt with powered individuals, when Donny Gill developed freezing capabilities he was sent to the facility and helped to control them.

The Sandbox fell to HYDRA, partly due to Donny who had been brainwashed by agents embedded in the base

The trailer: Scene by scene (1)

This first scene was breathtaking, first the familiar backdrop of what we all assumed was Tatooine, then what seems to be Rey’s speeder in the background heading towards the… oh my is that a Star Destroyer?!!

Information from the new Battlefront game (more in that soon) has revealed that this is in fact a new planet – Jakku, where fierce fighting took place between the Empire and Rebellion after Endor.
