Supremacy Gameplay Mode For Star Wars Battlefront

The EA Star Wars site has announced the latest new mode for the game! The multiplayer modes of Star Wars Battlefront span many different types of experiences. From close-quarter battle situations, to all-out clashes on huge maps with ground troops, vehicles, Heroes and Villains joining the fight, you’ll find the Supremacy mode in the latter category.

Supremacy centers on five control points scattered across the map. The objective is gaining control of all five, or the majority of them, before the 10 minute round is over. Each team starts the match controlling two of these control points, initially fighting for control of the fifth one in the center. After this is determined, the control points need to be claimed in a set order. This means the action will be taking place on two control points at a time – one for each team.

An intense mode for players that know their way around the battlefront, Supremacy is ideal for those craving all-out multiplayer action. According to Lead Level Designer Dennis Brännvall, this action will be both immediate and intense.

“When you spawn into Supremacy, you don’t have to move far to see a lot of friends – and enemies. You’re thrown into a massive frontline, where your screen is filled with adversaries: infantry, Heroes, Walkers, and starfighters. You can prepare for very heavy and focused Star Wars action,” Brännvall says.

If you’re the defending type, Supremacy will guarantee many enemies assaulting your control point. If you’re an attacking player, you'll surely find them trying to defend their control point from capture, ensuring constant frontline action.

Almost all vehicles in Star Wars Battlefront will take part in the fight, so keep an eye on the sky for TIE fighters and X-wings soaring through the sky to assist the quest for supremacy at each location. Heroes and Villains will also join the fight, and their unique abilities will help both sides in different ways.

“Using a character like Darth Vader to secure control points is great, as he can take increased damage before going down. Luke Skywalker and Boba Fett are great for moving swiftly between attacking and defensive positions, and giving you the edge against opponents in battle,” Brännvall explains.

As for map size, Supremacy will offer the largest fighting grounds that Star Wars Battlefront has to offer; the vast maps, alongside the ability to capture key areas, may seem similar to DICE game fans.  Brännvall, as member of the Battlefield team, can confirm the similarities between Supremacy and the signature mode from the game, Conquest.

“Supremacy is a game mode that will excite fans of the Conquest mode from Battlefield. That said, we’ve made several tweaks to improve the formula. You will always spawn close to the action when you enter Supremacy, so you’ll never feel isolated from the fight. By focusing on one key point at a time, players not playing the objective and camping on a hill somewhere will be a rare sight.”

With the Rebel Alliance and the Galactic Empire clashing, the vehicular action around you, and iconic Star Wars characters joining the fight, Supremacy is a multiplayer mode that will deliver exhilarating battles for players.

I know I can't wait to play this new version of my favorite game!
