Drop Zone is Battlefront's King of the Hill mode

Star Wars Battlefront has a King of the Hill-style mode which is known as Drop Zone.

Taking place in a galaxy far far away, Drop Zone sees eight versus eight matches where Rebel and Empire teams fight for control over drop pods on planets such as Tatooine, Hoth, Sullust and Endor.

To win your team will need to capture five pods or at least control the majority of them when the time runs out.

Interestingly if a pod is constantly changing possession and can't be claimed by either team, then another pod will be sent down, meaning that the stalemate should hopefully be broken.

"This goes hand in hand with our design philosophy behind many of the game modes in Star Wars Battlefront," lead level designer Dennis Brännvall said.

"We're promoting the idea of a fast, action-packed game where you need to be mobile and think on your feet. Camping doesn't really pay off."

If your team does claim a Pod then it will begin to open to reveal Power Pickups. The question to be asked here is do you stick around to claim the pick up's, which could be costly, or do you go and fight for possession of the other pod which is dropping somewhere.  

Drop Zone is included in the Star Wars Battlefront beta, which is due out on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in early October. Walker Assault on Hoth, and a wave-based Survival Mission on Tatooine are also included.

Are you excited for the beta or would you rather wait for the real thing?
