One of the best things Star Wars: Battlefront has going for it is the gorgeous fidelity with which it realizes Star Wars’ iconic planets. In fact, if you take out all the stormtroopers and rebels blasting away at each other, you can really appreciate how detailed those worlds are.
YouTube series “Other Worlds,” created by games journalist Andy Kelly, delves into game worlds to appreciate their beauty, and with its Battlefront video, the series shows off the artistry that went into creating them.
Battlefront is cool in that it offers a chance to actually kind of, sort of visit Star Wars locales like Tatooine, Hoth and Endor. A lot of work went into making those places feel like they do in the films. The rest of the game might be a little thin, but at least developer DICE nailed that part.
The rest of the Kelly’s Other Places videos are worth a look as well, and you can find them all on his YouTube channel.
