DICE On Battlefront: No More Partner Spawn In Combat

    Representatives for DIVE have been quite responsive to the Star Wars: Battlefront community here in the past few and months and it’s been even more so now that the beta is live. For example, Dennis Brannvall, who is the Lead Multiplayer Designer, concurred with a gamer that partners should not have the ability to spawn during combat. This makes us think that this part of the game will be fixed before it’s released. However, someone else posted on the official subreddit of Star Wars: Battlefront about their surprising encounter with a loading screen with the map of Endor. This made rumors fly about the map being added to the rotation during the last few beta design days. This has happened with other games like Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, but the Community Manager, Sledgehammer10, put the rumor to rest with tweets. One thing that he did clarify…

Komatu: Two Very Impressive Hours With The Star Wars Battlefront Beta

  Patricia Hernandez it’s not actually a huge Star Wars fan, however after spending a few hours playing Star Wars: Battlefront on the PS4 a while back, she stated that she was starting to feel what all the fuss is about. This post is her experience with the time she spent with the game. The visuals are amazing but it’s not just because they are pretty to look at. In her opinion, the best thing that strikes her about them is how well they show off the work, threadbare quality that the majority of the objects found in the movie are seen as well. The blaster gun isn’t all fancy, it’s rough and rugged. Futuristic but still somehow old, which is simply amazing. With these graphics and the combination of DICE’s amazing audio design, Battlefront completely transports you into their world. Star Wars fans will absolutely love the details and…

The months that remain will not have any mercy on Star Wars fans that are shaking as they await more news about the upcoming Star Wars movie. The one thing that is making this wait even worse is that Disney has not been too shy about giving us supplementary merchandise that is based on the Star Wars: The Force Awakens movie.
