Gamers have a chance to play EA’s Star Wars Battlefront beta until October 12, but this video of Luke Skywalker’s demise will live on forever.
Star Wars Battlefront beta offers a lot of great features, most notably the whole Stormtrooper wildly missing laser shots thing, which is a pleasant throwback to the movies. In all seriousness, though, the Walker Assault scenario is a scenario found in the beta — and it’s amazing. Star Wars Battlefront beta offers other game modes like Deathmatch and Survival, but nothing is as interesting as fighting alongside (or against) the franchise’s iconic AT-AT walkers. But in Luke Skywalker’s case, no amount of force can stop a jedi from getting squashed like a bug.
The clip, shared on YouTube by user Zephs, is absolutely amazing. Watch the clip below:
In the clip, the player is running for his life as Skywalker chases after him — and rightfully so. It’s intimidating to have the famed jedi running after you. But the player is saved by an AT-AT that crushes Skywalker not once, but twice. Skywalker may have met his untimely end with his glitchy, petrified body sticking out of the snow, but it’s the second step by the AT-AT that sweetens the deal.
Star Wars Battlefront is expected to be released November 17 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
