Star Wars: Battlefront Getting a Change in Leadership

battlefront-getting-a-change-in-leadership

According to a Tweet from Battlefront’s lead designer, Dennis Brannvall, there could be a change in leadership happening. He announced he has worked his last day on Battlefront and it’s time to pass the reigns. He’s taking paternity leave to help out with his boys, one a recently announced new addition to the family. So today I worked my last day on Battlefront. I’ll be on paternity leave, taking care of my two boys. See you next year! — Dennis Brännvall (@DICE_FireWall) November 7, 2016 Many from the US will agree that we need better maternity/paternity leave programs here as dads nearly never secure time off and the mothers get only a short time, or are sometimes forced to quit or have their positions replaced while they are away on maternity leave. Lucky for Brannvall, he lives in a country that respects the value of family and he should be back…

star-wars-battlefront-2-coming-in-fall-2017

News released about Star Wars Battlefront 2 and not surprisingly, it will be releasing in Fall of 2017, just in time for Star Wars 8. While this is certainly not a surprise to anyone, it’s still good to get a confirmation. We still don’t have a lot of information yet and we don’t even know for sure what the title is going to be. The first Star Wars Battlefront (technically the third main Battlefront game, and the second to have that exact title) came out in 2015 and tied in with the release of The Force Awakens. “We’re working very hard on making sure that it’s an extremely deep and engaging offering,” EA chief financial officer Blake Jorgensen confirmed in a conference call with financial analysts. He said the game will release in “a year from now” and just in time for the holidays. While it’s not a firm release date…

Star Wars: Battlefront’s Death Star DLC Nails it!

star-wars-battlefronts-death-star-dlc-nails-it

Star Wars: Battlefront’s latest DLC, called Death Star, was preceded by an insane amount of buzz, but when it landed, it actually fulfilled all expectations and more. In fact, its only shortcoming is that it’s way too short and that it brings less content than one would like. That is not to say there isn’t enough new content in the DLC. It’s all just so seamless and well-integrated into the movie-universe, that while playing, one actually feels like he/she is taking an active part in Star Wars canon. It makes people hungry for more, while indeed promising them a lot more in – as yet hypothetical – future expansions. There are so many great ideas, so many opportunities and potential offered by the Star Wars universe, it’s almost impossible for the devs to get things wrong from here on out. While everything is superbly rendered in the game, there are…
