We could be heroes, for the whole damn game
Isuspect that part of the reason StarWars Battlefront wasn’t a smash hit is that it was caught between two worlds: Between the skirmishes of modern Battlefield games and the knockabout fun of the first two Battlefront games. HeroBlast swings the pendulum towards the latter, implementing a mode that allows you to play as one of the series’ iconic characters 100% of the time. Rather than throwing heaps of players against one another, as in many of the other modes, the invite-only Hero Blast is a strict six-on-six team deathmatch, pitting a group of Rebels against the Imperials. You don’t have to play as some weedy soldier part of the time, either: You just pick an iconic hero or villain, and then run around walloping one another until the match is over.
Who doesn’t want to be a hero all of the time?
