The Secret to Star Wars: Battlefront’s Art? Real Props

Now that J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: The Force Awakens is just weeks away, the wait is more agonizing than ever. Sure, Disney has been shipping tie-in merchandise for months, but no mere toy will rescue us from the tedium. Unless that toy happens to be, say, a digital replication of an original prop, so realistic it’s like you’re wielding the real thing. And that’s exactly what Star Wars Battlefront delivers. Using a combination of scanning tech and reference shots, developers at the Stockholm-based studio DICE modeled in-game weapons and set pieces after originals from the movies—and “brought them back to their original glory,” says Sigurlína Ingvarsdóttir, Battlefront’s senior producer. Suddenly, a little more waiting doesn’t sound so bad.
