Star Wars Battlefront is an action game played from either a first-person or third-person view; players can switch views whenever desired, similar to previous games, except when controlling "hero" characters or their personal guards. Players traverse planets from the original Star Wars trilogy, such as Endor, Hoth, Tatooine, Bespin, and Sullust, as well as the planet of Jakku from the sequel trilogy. To navigate the world, players use a variety of vehicles, including both air and land-based vehicles, such as speederbikes and AT-STs. Battles are planet-based, restricting players from exploring space. The only map that is space-based is included in the expansion pack titled "Death Star", which was released in September 2016. The game's weapons, characters, gear, and abilities are customizable. As new weapons are unlocked, players have the ability to share them with their teammates. Battlefront does not feature iron sights, but allows players to zoom in for better accuracy.
