Battlefield developer DICE's upcoming shooter Star Wars: Battlefront will let players customize their characters, but there are, as you might expect, limits to what will be allowed.

The official Battlefront Twitter account offered some insight into Battlefront customization after a fan raised a question about it. "Yes, we will offer customization," EA said. "That said, we won't be letting players create purple Stormtroopers or change Darth Vader's suit color etc."

Outside of a flashy CG trailer, EA has yet to show any Battlefront gameplay, at least publicly. GameSpot editor Chris Watters saw gameplay during a behind-closed-doors presentation in April; read his impressions here.

EA will reveal Battlefront gameplay for the first time at E3 this month, presumably during the company's briefing on June 15.

Battlefront launches November 17 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. Those who preorder will receive access to the free Battle of Jakku expansion on December 1, while everyone else will get to play it on December 7. This content is themed around upcoming movie Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens.

GameSpot will be on the ground in full force at E3, bringing you all the news as it's announced.
