Star Wars Battlefront: Finally, a Game Where You Can Play as Nien Nunb

By Gerald Lynch on at

Star Wars fans, this is the game you're looking for. Forget the flashy graphics, land-to-air combat and Darth Vader cameo, there's only one reason you need to buy the newly-revealed Star Wars Battlefront; it's got Nien Nunb in it:

(Or at least one of his Sullustan species pals). The Chewbacca to Lando Calrissian's Han Solo, Nien Nunb is a personal favourite Star Wars secondary character of mine and, as far as I'm aware, he and the members of his race have rarely popped up in videogames before. Seeing as the trailer above claims to be all "game engine" footage, it looks as if a Sullustan character is likely going to be playable.

Even if good old Nunb wasn't in it though, Star Wars Battlefront would be looking pretty damn sweet. Heading to PS4, Xbox One and PC on November 17th, you'll be able to take part in huge 40 player battles set in key locations from the Star Wars universe, as well as a new sandy planet from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. You'll be able to play as both the Rebel Alliance and the Empire, and there's also plenty of spaceships and vehicles from the films that you can cruise around in too.

However, if there aren't emotes that let you pull off these classic Nien Nunb facial expressions with your teammates...
