A new patch for Star Wars Battlefront arrived, adding the offline Skirmish mode and making a number of changes to the shooter’s UI, maps, modes, weapons, heroes, and more.
As announced previously, Skirmish lets you play the Walker Assault or Fighter Squadron modes against bots by yourself or with a friend online. You can also play split-screen, but only on console. GameSpot tried Skirmish recently and you can see what we thought in the video above.
Today’s Battlefront patch also tweaks the partner system so that spawning checks happen at a one-second interval instead of two. “This should make it less likely that players will be able to partner spawn when being close to an enemy before a fire fight has started,” DICE said in the official patch notes.

The “Star Wars” opening crawl is the synonymous imagery that pops in your head when thinking about the franchise. All the “Star Wars” films have included it (even though there are reports of the upcoming “Rogue One” supposedly dropping the crawl). It’s the first thing the audience sees. You want to get it right.
Unfortunately, the “Force Awakens” opening crawl has been mired in controversy. MIRED!
The paragraph in question, which was noticed by a content editor at Mic, reads:
With the support of the REPUBLIC, General Leia Organa leads a brave RESISTANCE. She is desperate to find her brother Luke and gain his help in restoring peace and justice to the galaxy.
The problem is with the name “Luke” in the phrase, “She is desperate to find her brother Luke.” The name doesn’t have any commas around it, making it information that’s essential to the sentence. But the only reason it’d be essential is if Leia had more than one brother and Luke’s name had to be specified.
Yeah, that’s pretty heavy.
If Luke was Leia’s only brother, as we all believe, there would be commas around the name because it’s nonessential, i.e., the sentence has the same meaning without it.
The comma exclusion implies that Leia has more brothers ― perhaps some missing sibling we haven’t met. The revelation quickly went viral as the internet had a bigger meltdown than the Death Star.
Does this mean Vader had another kid? Holy Nerf Herder …
HuffPost recently spoke with Abrams about his new movie, “Star Trek Beyond,” and during the call, the director cleared up the opening crawl mystery:
“I think its intention is pretty clear, and I take full responsibility for any punctuation errors,” said Abrams.
Sorry, conspiracy theorists. This is not the answer you’re looking for. Leia has only one brother. It was just a good old-fashioned typo.
Now we can focus on more important things, like: Who shot first? Who are Rey’s parents? And will Chewbacca Mom actually play Chewbacca’s mom?
THE GALAXY’S WHITE-ARMORED SOLDIERS GREW MORE RUTHLESS AND FACELESS AS REGIMES CHANGED.
A military filled with well-trained soldiers in white armor is a common trait shared by the Galactic Republic, Galactic Empire, and First Order. This is no coincidence, as each generation of combat forces influenced the battle dress of its successor. However, the Republic’s clone troopers, the Empire’s stormtroopers, and the First Order’s stormtroopers have their own unique attributes, with various levels of disparity existing in their recruitment processes, training procedures, levels of conformity, and the images they project to citizens living in the territories that they control.
While all three entities filled their ranks with humans, the Republic obviously did so with human clones who had their aging accelerated and were trained from birth on Kamino. While the initial army of Imperial stormtroopers was originally comprised of former clone troopers, the Empire gradually phased in human recruits who eventually became the core of its fighting force. The First Order’s enlistment tactics were similar to the Republic’s breeding programs in that they were morally questionable, except the First Order resorted to identifying potential soldiers and stealing them from their families at a very young age. By default, the oppressive Imperial regime ironically had the fairest program with its use of voluntary recruits.
