Tak­ing ad­van­tage of Xbox One’s sup­port for eight con­trollers, #IDARB is a four-on-four game that’s part foot­ball, part Smash Bros, strip­ping both to the bare es­sen­tials and then crank­ing up the speed to a chaotic frenzy for some­thing in the style of

Tow­erfall with less death and more laughs. Oneon-one ac­tion is fun, but the game kicks into a dif­fer­ent gear with a full com­ple­ment of play­ers.

Less a trailer than a mini-doc­u­men­tary about the fetishis­tic at­ten­tion DICE is lav­ish­ing on the team shooter’s re­turn, EA’s E3 footage did give us our first glimpses of in-en­gine Stormtroop­ers and T-47s of breath­tak­ing fidelity. It’s a bar the fin­ished game can’t pos­si­bly meet, but it was clear the stu­dio will stop at noth­ing short of the most faith­ful re­cre­ation of the orig­i­nal tril­ogy uni­verse yet to grace gam­ing.
