Star Wars Battlefront 3: Carrying Over Battlefield Community Features, Respawn On Board?

Posted by on Feb 28, 2015 in Star Wars: Battlefront | 0 comments

  There is a new video regarding Star Wars: Battlefront, courtesy of Star Wars HQ, and you can subscribe to them on YouTube here. DICE’s sister company, Respawn, has announced that they have split the team up. The larger team is continuing their work on Titanfall, and the smaller team, which is headed by Stig Asmussen, is working on an unannounced project. Most people think the smaller team could be working on Battlefront, more specifically, its online system. Titanfall has been criticized for its matchmaking, but it has not went offline since its launch. The Community Test Environment has been setup for Battlefield’s premium subscribers as a privilege. These subscribers have the ability to try out new weapons, maps, and more. The Community Map Project is quite similar to this. DICE has encouraged fans to give them maps from scratch and this time they want an emphasis to be on fan created content. Star Wars fans, I am sure, would love to have the opportunity to recreate...

Will Star Wars: Episode 7 be the first $3bn movie?

Posted by on Feb 27, 2015 in Star Wars: Episode VII | 0 comments

With many of the original actors and the return of the original Chewbacca, R2D2, and C3PO, it’s no wonder that Star Wars fans are psyched about the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII film. Earlier last year, The Wrap had reported that some analysts are saying they think Episode VII will reach $2 billion at the worldwide box office. The only others who have reached this staggering number are James Cameron’s Titanic and Avatar. We think that reaching this amazing height is extremely possible as long as Abrams gets the mix of the old and the new right. In order for Episode VII to reach these heights, it would need to surpass Avatar’s $2.78 billion haul, and then it would likely become the world’s first $3 billion movie. In 1977, the first Star Wars film was released and only a few thousand people were familiar with Star Wars. However, the news of this amazing saga spread quickly and there were lines backed up everywhere to see it. Movie earnings don’t work the same way they used to back in...

Will Luke Finally Turn to the Dark Side in The Force Awakens?

Posted by on Feb 21, 2015 in Star Wars: Episode VII | 0 comments

Plot rumors about The Force Awakens are a dime a dozen, and they continue to come fast and furious, despite J.J. Abrams’ and Lucasfilm’s attempts to stifle leaks. One of the interesting potential plot points that people have been mulling over lately is Luke’s ultimate fate: will he remain a force of good? Or will he follow in Anakin’s footsteps and succumb to the lure of the Dark side? Mark Hamill has stated that he thought Luke would be headed down a Darker path at the end of the original trilogy, but that didn’t play out. Some people think that we could see it this December, but there isn’t much evidence for that. It wouldn’t be surprising to see Disney try to shatter a few people’s...

Star Wars Ep. VII Rumor Crackdown

Posted by on Feb 20, 2015 in Star Wars: Episode VII | 0 comments

We’ve been posting some of the most interesting rumors about The Force Awakens over the past few months, but it looks like that news may be slowing down in the near future. J.J. Abrams has expressed his frustration with the number of leaks coming from the Star Wars set, and it’s a safe bet that he’ll be taking a harder line with anyone who appears to be releasing information. It’s not just Abrams that’s been going after the sources of those leaks—Lucasfilm has recently started to crack down as well. A subpoena was issued by a court requiring a user called Darth_Simi to remove some images from Episode VII that he had posted on ImageShack. This is the first legal action that Lucasfilm has taken, and it looks...
