Pandemic has some pleasant surprises in store for PC users who expected more from the original Star Wars Battlefront. Associate Producer Dave Baker talked with 1UP about some features in Battlefront II that will be exclusive to the desktop crowd. For starters, they've beefed up the visuals over the console counterparts by leveraging the PC's pixel shading prowess and ability to support environment mapping. There's also an improved HUD, a first-person perspective option, and support for up to 64 players online (improving on the LAN limitations of the first game). With the PSP release also getting the bonus treatment, one has to wonder if Pandemic will maintain balance in the force by providing some console goodies.
