After shelling out enough money to buy several small countries, Disney is banking on the Star Wars franchise to be a box office juggernaut for many years to come. They will find out just how big of a success it will be this December but until then, they’ll just need to settle for some big wins at Gamescom, Europe’s biggest video game trade show that is taking place right now in Cologne, Germany.
Star Wars: Battlefront took home the Best of Gamescom Honor as well as four other awards including the most wanted consumer award, significant because it’s a predictor of how well this thing will actually sell when it is released November 17 on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
Other awards include best Playstation game, best PC game and best online multiplayer game.
The LucasArts / EA title looks like it will be a pretty badass game, putting the player into the middle of some massive battles pulled right from the Star Wars universe.
The game also made waves when a shot of Boba Fett surfaced in a scene that seems similar to one from Episode 7. Since it was announced that all Star Wars property would be canon, assumptions are that the popular bounty hunter survived his trip down the sarlacc pit.
