Details about EA's new Star Wars video game Battlefront are hitting the web via the AP ahead of a review embargo set to be lifted later today.

While details are sparse ahead of the embargo, it was made public that the game will feature locations ranging from Hoth, to Tatooine, to the rarely seen magma planet Sullust. The game will also receive a free downloadable Jakku level just before the release of Star Wars Episode 7: The Force Awakens.

Players will have the opportunity to play as a variety of ground troops, including characters such as Boba Fett and Darth Vader - if they can score enough points to unlock these boss characters. 

Battlefront also boasts arial dogfights featuring X-Wings, TIE Fighters, and other iconic vehicles, though EA and co-developed DICE were mum about how the action switches between ground and air combat.

Battlefront is due out on November 17 on PS4, X-Box One, and Windows PC.
