In cre­at­ing Bat­tle­front, DICE has worked closely with Lu­cas­film and Dis­ney, the Swedish de­vel­op­ment stu­dio be­ing granted ac­cess to orig­i­nal props, hav­ing the op­por­tu­nity to visit film­ing lo­ca­tions, and even set­ting foot in­side Sky­walker Ranch. “They’ve been ex­tremely wel­com­ing,” Ing­vars­dot­tir tells us. “They’re ob­vi­ously the cre­ators and guardians of Star Wars, and they take that se­ri­ously, and they’re ded­i­cated and pas­sion­ate about what they do. As are we about the games we make. And I think we share a sim­i­lar mind­set that makes it eas­ier for us to see each other’s point of view. Even if those points of view aren’t nec­es­sar­ily aligned, I think we re­spect each other enough to re­solve that.”
