Even John Boyega wants a single-player campaign for Star Wars Battlefront

Celebrities: They're just like us!

Michael McWhertor is a journalist with more than 17 years of experience covering video games, technology, movies, TV, and entertainment.

John Boyega, who played Stormtrooper/custodial engineer Finn in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, joined thousands of other Star Wars Battlefront players last night in asking for a single-player campaign for EA and DICE's latest shooter.

Boyega, who has more than 560,000 followers on Twitter, went straight to the source with his request.

Last night, Boyega tweeted at Electronic Arts' Star Wars account, asking, "Will fans get a full on offline story mode? It's more of an enjoyable way to learn controls." Boyega, who says he's been playing the Star Wars Battlefront games "for years," also joked, "What's weird is killing stormtroopers online before .... Actually killing stormtroopers..."

Star Wars Battlefront is primarily an online multiplayer experience, though the game does have a Missions mode, in which players can fight solo or cooperatively with bots. EA responded directly to Boyega with a mention of that very feature, which apparently the Force Awakens star has already played.

"[Yeah] thought it was great!" he said. "But definitely leaves you wanting to engage within a narrative. Can I visit your base in the uk?"

While it's possible that Boyega may be able to talk some sense into DICE and convince EA to give single-player fans something to latch onto, the plan for Star Wars Battlefront seems to be more heroes, more maps, more modes and more weapons for online multiplayer this year.
