Players traverse planets from the Star Wars universe, such as Endor, Hoth, Tatooine and the newly introduced planet of Sullust. To navigate the world, players use a variety of vehicles, including both air and land-based vehicles, such as speederbikes and AT-ATs. Battles are planet-based, restricting players from exploring space. The game's weapons, characters, gear and abilities are customizable. As new weapons are unlocked, players have the ability to share them with their teammates. Battlefront will not feature iron sights, but allows players to zoom in for better accuracy.

Minecraft is a sandbox independent video game originally created by Swedish programmer Markus "Notch" Persson and later developed and published by the Swedish company Mojang. The creative and building aspects of Minecraft enable players to build constructions out of textured cubes in a 3D procedurally generated world. From our gaming community stand point, Minecraft was a huge deal. You could build, destroy, explore, craft, gather resources, and play with all your friends, the limitations in that game where almost nonexistent.
Rust is a survival video game in development by Facepunch Studios for Microsoft Windows, OS X, and Linux. Rust was originally released onto Steam's Early Access program on 11 December 2013. The game tasks players to survive in the wilderness by crafting items using the materials they gather or steal. The game was initially created as a clone of DayZ, a popular mod for ARMA 2 with the addition of crafting elements. Since Rust's first alpha launch, animals, hunting and the ability to craft armor and weapons have been added. It initially featured zombies as enemies, but subsequently replaced them with bears and wolves. Since its release, it has been met with mostly positive reviews. Reviewers praised the concept and gameplay, while noting the unfinished state was apparent. As of the end of 2015, Rust has sold over 3 million copies.

League of Legends (LoL) is a multiplayer online battle arena video game developed and published by Riot Games for Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X. It is a free-to-play game supported by micro-transactions and inspired by the mod Defense of the Ancients for the video game Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne. In League of Legends, players assume the role of an unseen "summoner" that controls a "champion" with unique abilities and battle against a team of other players or computer-controlled champions. In the most popular game modes, the goal is to destroy the opposing team's "nexus", a building which lies at the heart of a base protected by defensive structures. Each League of Legends game is discrete, with all champions starting off each game fairly weak and progressing by accumulating gold and experience over the course of the game. League of Legends really took the floor as the top MOBA in the last few years. Millions of player around the world play it each day and have new experiences as they play different characters and modes. From that one feeding teammate to that one perfect team comp, League of Legends never gets dull.
Heroes of the Storm is a multiplayer online battle arena video game developed by Blizzard Entertainment for Microsoft Windows and OS X. The game features heroes from Blizzard's franchises including Warcraft, Diablo, and StarCraft. The game uses both free-to-play and premium models and is supported by micropayments, which can be used to purchase heroes, visual alterations for the heroes in the game and mounts. Blizzard does not call the game a "multiplayer online battle arena" or an "action real-time strategy" because they feel it is something different with a broader playstyle; they refer to it as an online "Hero Brawler". Heroes of the Storm is different from most MOBA's. They do have the same basic concept but very different playing fields and features. For example, you can ride mounts and any kills during the game are counted toward team kills which then adds the aspect of team leveling into the game. Heroes of the Storm is a great and fun game to play and different from the normal MOBA's.
