More and more details about the highly anticipated video game Star Wars Battlefront have been coming to light lately since it's official reveal at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim.  Most recently a collection of facts have surfaced, revealing info about player customization abilities and more confirmed playable vehicles.

First off, Games Rader is reporting that during an interview with the Official Xbox Magazine, Battlefront's design director Niklas Fegraeus confirmed that the new game will be ditching the class system fans are familiar with from  Battlefronts I & II. Instead, players will be able to "freely" choose their weapons and gear, similarly to Renegade Squadron. "You can instead unlock and use whatever you want using XP, so it sounds like you won't be tied to set archetypes," they add.

They also reiterated something announced at Celebration, which is that Battlefront will not include a sizable squad element. "Instead of that there's a new 'Partners' feature that links two players together so that they can see each other on their HUDS and spawn on each other to save time getting around," Games Radar reports. "They'll also be able to share whatever they've unlocked, so if you're teamed with a higher level partner, or someone who's bought a different loadout with their XP, then you can have access to a different set of toys."

Secondly, VG247 is reporting that some EA and DICE team members took to Reddit recently to answer a number of fan questions about the game. During the Q & A they confirmed that along with AT-STs and Speeder Bikes, the Millennium Falcon and Snowspeeders will be among the the vehicles that we will be able to take control of during gameplay. They also added that they will be “A lot easier to fly. Very Padawan friendly, " and they promised to explain further at a later time.

We've been hearing some negative news surrounding Battlefront lately, such as the absence of Prequel content and space battles in the Game. But thankfully this sounds positive. Being able to customize your character, as apposed to being forced into one of several classes like the previous games, sounds really awesome. And who hasn't dreamed of flying the Millennium Falcon into battle?

Star Wars Battlefront hits Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC on November 17th!
