Star Wars Battlefront suffers immortal player glitch

DICE and EA don't have a good track record when it comes to multiplayer releases—see the likes of the disastrous launch of Battlefield 4. But Star Wars Battlefront, while not exactly the game many were hoping for, at least seemed to work fairly well, with none of the severe server issues that dogged BF4.

Unfortunately for EA, Battlefront is suffering from a different kind of problem: that of the immortal player. According to report from Ars sister publication Wired UK, immortal players have been causing grief in the game's multiplayer modes. Wired UK played several multiplayer matches earlier this week, and saw at least two instances of players who were impervious to all weapons and melee attacks. Those players racked up 100 kills each in a mere 10-minute round.

 

The appearance of immortal players has lead to accusations of deliberate cheating on social media and Reddit. However, with most of the reports of immortal players coming in from the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the game, it makes it highly unlikely that any deliberate hacks have been deployed. Instead, players on Reddit are claiming they inadvertently became immortal after crashing a ship, with others saying it just happened randomly.


The licensed nostalgia of this simplified shooter wears off after just a few rounds.

In the past, players who were found to be deliberately making use of bugs and exploits in multiplayer matches have been banned from games, although this practice has been known to affect innocent players too. Other bannable glitches have included the wonderful Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Javelin glitch, which made players explode when they were shot, and World of Warcraft's Corrupted Blood incident, which resulted in a virtual plague that wiped out whole cities until the bug was fixed a week later.

 

While Battlefront's immortal bug appears to still be affecting players—at least if YouTube is anything to go by—it's likely DICE will come up with a fix for this doozie of a glitch before too long, particularly as the game launches today in the UK.
