Star Wars Battlefront, which hits Nov. 17 on the PS4, Windows PC and Xbox One, will focus on Rebel versus Empire firefights between up to 40 players on the ground and in an array of Star Wars vehicles, according to an AP report.

The game's demo, which was shown off during Star Wars Celebration under an embargo that lifts later today, included jetpacks, speeders, walkers and AT-ATs.

Locations mentioned in the story include Endor, Hoth, Tatooine and Sullust. Players who rack up enough in-game points will be able to take on the role of iconic characters like Boba Fett and Darth Vader on the battlefield, according to the story.

The game will also support TIE Fighter, X-wing and Millennium Falcon dogfights.

Finally, according to the AP, the game will be getting a free downloadable level, set on Jakku, available two weeks before Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens in theaters Dec. 18.

Following the premature AP story, EA has lifted the embargo, so look forward to our coverage of the game soon.
