Star Wars: Battlefront is shaping up to have all the modes you’d expect from a shooter (like the recently revealed Blast deathmatch mode). The latest to be revealed is “Drop Zone,” which pits two teams of eight against each other in a race for capture points.

Players won’t know where they’ll be needed, though. Pods fall from the sky, marking the next point of interest. Once captured, the pods slowly open delivering a power up to the team in control.

Modes move quickly, lasting no more than 10 minutes. They can be ended faster if one team manages to control five pods.

Turrets and droids are available to create some variety as players scramble to clear out enemy forces and take control of the points. No video is available of the mode yet, but Star Wars: Battlefront is due out on November 17 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
