Star Wars- EA Officially Reveals “Drop Zone” Mode for Battlefront

EGP Website Article Image 197

The release date of the next Star Wars Battlefront video game looms closer now that we’re in mid-September (with the game scheduled for release on November 17th), and now EA have revealed a new mode for the game: “Drop Zone”.

Several new modes that will be included in Battlefront have been revealed recently with this being the latest.

EA have described this game mode with the following:

“Drop Zone” is described as a King of the hill-style “action-filled, tactical mode” that involves several drop pods falling on to the map. The match pits eight Imperial players against eight Rebel players who must fight for control of these pods. Players must locate and capture five of the pods, or a majority of them once the ten minute match ends. If one pod becomes highly contested, changing teams multiple times, another pod will be sent down, forcing each team to capture both pods, thus ending the stand off.

Once a pod is captured, it will provide power ups to players. Other tools will also be at your disposal, such turrets and Viper Droids (which point out the source of enemies), which can be dropped on the fly. Drop Zone will be available to play on planets such as Hoth, Sullust, Tatooine and Endor.”

Lead level designer Dennis Brännvall also described a part of the mode in the Endor map:

“Playing Drop Zone on the Swamp Crash Site on Endor is a personal favourite. The map has a couple of nice choke points but is overall very free-flowing and hectic, as enemies can attack from anywhere on that level. The fight takes place around a crashed GR-75 transport ship with containers from the craft strewn across the landscape, and there’s one section with a waterfall overlooked by a Ewok village, where you have to jump down into the pool below in order to claim the pod, hoping no one’s hiding in the trees above waiting to pick you off.”

Thoughts on this mode? Are you looking forward to playing it in Battlefront?

EGP Website Article Image 193EGP Website Article Image 194

Captain Marvel will be the first female-led Marvel film when it’s released in late 2018, and therefore Marvel will be looking to cast the lead role very wisely. A new rumour has being released on an actress who is being considered for the title character.

Rebecca Ferguson stood out to many viewers in her role as Ilsa Faust in this year’s Mission: Impossible- Rogue Nation, so it’s no surprise that a company like Marvel is already thinking about hiring her to play an important character.

No confirmation has been made on whether or not Marvel has offered her a contract yet.

The Captain Marvel film will officially be released on November 2nd, 2018.

EGP Website Article Image 192

Even though most fans have presumed that The Joker will be the main villain of next year’s Suicide Squad film, a new rumours that this may not be the case.

The new rumour indicates that Enchantress (played by Cara Delevingne) could really be the main villain of the film.

The rumour suggests the following about how Enchantress could be the villain- “Enchantress goes insane with magical power following the death of her brother. She then sets off to perform a ritual to resurrect her brother, which could end up destroying the world if the Squad doesn’t stop her.”

Enchantress isn’t seen with the Suicide Squad members in the San Diego Comic-Con trailer so it’s a definite possibility…

Confirmed- Baron Zemo is the Main Villain in Captain America Civil War

EGP Website Article Image 191

While the main story of Captain America: Civil War will focus on the opposing sides of the superhero conflict (Team Captain America and Team Iron Man), there will be a major villain in play during the film. While we knew the character and the actor playing him were cast for this film, it hadn’t officially been confirmed that he would be the main villain of Civil War until now.

Elizabeth Olsen (Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch) confirmed that Daniel Brühl’s Baron Zemo is the main villain of Captain America: Civil War.

Olsen said the following:

“Brühl is an incredible actor and he’s playing the main villain in it, and he’s incredible! It’s a movie about people as opposed to robots this time. So it’s darker and it’s allowed to be darker because it gets more in the mindset of humans rather than machines.”

Captain America: Civil War will officially be released on May 6th, 2016.
