# IDARB STAR WARS: BATTLEFRONT
Publisher/developer Other Ocean Interactive Format PS4, Xbox One Release 2014
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.
Publisher/developer EA (DICE) Format PC, PS4, Xbox One Release TBC
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.
