A whole slew of rumors about the upcoming Star Wars Battlefront have surfaced, including the notion that its campaign will span all the movies, according to fansite MakingStarWars.net.

While we would normally hesitate to relay information first procured by a fansite, MakingStarWars.net has a track record of being spot on with rumors it has reported about Star Wars: Episode VII: The Force Awakens. That said, we’d recommended everyone still take this all with a grain of salt and hold off on writing any new fan-fiction just yet (besides, it wouldn’t be canonical).

The majority of the game is supposedly set to take place during the original trilogy (Episodes IV-VI), but will have missions that bring us back to the prequels, like the space battle above Coruscant that Revenge of the Sith opened on.

There will also be some original missions that help build the bridge between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens, since Battlefront is currently slated for a holiday 2015 release and is expected to launch just before the movie opens.

In regards to multiplayer, it will support 64 players (32-on-32), and will feature a “hero” system where players will be able to accumulate special points that allow them to play at least once per match as a hero character. I’d imagine that means characters like Luke Skywalker and Han Solo. Maybe even Lando Calrissian (who hasn’t wanted to be Billy Dee Williams at some point in their lives)?

Unsurprising in this day and age, there will also be an “extremely aggressive” DLC plan for the game.

The rumors continued that developer DICE was allowed into Pinewood Studios (where Episode VII is being filmed) to scan and capture new props and sets for the game.

To see the rest of the list of rumors, you can check them out at MakingStarWars.net. Star Wars: Battlefront will (hopefully) be available this holiday for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
