DICE may be looking to appeal to a wider Star Wars audience rather by lowering the entry barrier rather than the more core fans from the Battlefield series who are accustom to server browsers on all platforms.
Star Wars: Battlefront will release for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on the 17th November.
Does the lack of a Battlefront server browser affect your view of the game, will you buy it regardless or have you changed your mind about the game. Let us know in the comments below.
