A leaked photo of the "Star Wars: Battlefront" has revealed that the game will feature a number of vehicular elements including a speeder bike. With this feature, players will be able to race speeder bikes on the moon Endor.

It is of common knowledge that both EA and developer DICE have been successful in keeping information regarding the game's gameplay modes. However, a leaked photo of the "Star Wars: Battlefront" gameplay was first spotted on the September issue of the Official PlayStation Magazine UK. The photo from the magazine was uploaded by a certain Reddit user named jmario99, a report from iDigital Times said on Thursday.

"Complimenting Survival and competitive multiplayer are a series of trials introducing you to game mechanics. There's Endor speeder bike racing, AT-AT tow cable tripping and X-Wing crash courses. These trials like Survival can be played alone, with bots, in splitscreen co-op or online co-op," reads a paragraph sourced from the magazine.

"Granted, the wording makes these modes sound like tutorials, but there's a chance they'll be more fleshed out than that. The fact that they're being touted alongside the Survival mode and are available in co-op play seems to suggest that they're more than simple flying lessons. While the speeder bike races and tow cabling seem somewhat self-explanatory, the X-Wing crash courses are something of an enigma. Crash course likely translates to 'obstacle course,' but who knows - with an X-Wing, an obstacle course or flying lesson could be just the tip of the iceberg," Tech Times said.

Attack of the Fanboy reports that the game's trials will help players practice and hone their skills before they engage in fighting. It noted that riding the speeder bikes will be the hardest part of the game since it is unlike other games wherein players can drive many vehicles. It was also emphasized that players will have to practice a lot in piloting both X-Wings and TIE-Fighters in order to succeed in the game's Fighter Squadron mode.

"Star Wars: Battlefront" is scheduled to be released on Nov. 17 for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One platforms.
