A Star Wars Battlefront Supremacy mode match (opens in new tab) could hypothetically last forever, lead multiplayer designer Dennis Brannvall explained on Twitter recently. Brannvall was clarifying a post on the Battlefront blog, which stated (opens in new tab) that the objective of the the mode is "gaining control of all five [control points], or the majority of them, before the 10 minute round is over." It turns out that a match will start with a 10-minute countdown, but capturing a control point adds time. Here's Brannvall's own words on the subject:
Clarification on the Supremacy blog: each time a control point is claimed, time is added. A close Supremacy match can go on foreverAugust 13, 2015
Battlefront has revealed a ton of modes since its initial debut, each one aimed at a unique experience. Survival (opens in new tab) (a subset of Missions mode, which features specific challenges) can be tackled solo or co-op, pitting a small number of soldiers against increasingly-difficult waves of enemies, Walker Assault (opens in new tab) recreates the kind of large-scale battles seen in The Empire Strikes Back, Blast (opens in new tab) is a 10v10 mode for those looking for a quick deathmatch skirmish, and Fighter Squadron (opens in new tab) sends players to the skies for aerial dogfights.
Ah, yes. The modes are strong with this one.
