Star Wars Battlefront: AT-AT’s Are Confirmed To Be On Rails, DICE Explains Reason Behind The Decision

Posted by on Apr 26, 2015 in Star Wars: Battlefront | 0 comments

One of the most controversial additions to Star Wars: Battlefront has finally been addressed by DICE producer with the Reddit username “DICE_TheBikingViking.” He has finally confirmed that the AT-AT’s in Star Wars: Battlefront will be on rails. A recent conversation happened with a fan on Reddit and the producer. The fan asked: “With all due respect, are you seriously saying that level of foliage is going to be running on our PS4’s in 2015? Ignoring everything else.” This was his reply: “I don’t like making hard guarantees. The game hasn’t shipped yet. We’re not done with it. But this is how it looks right now – on PS4 as well, yes. I do want to make a very specific comment. While some people have called bullshots, others have said this is not that different from e.g. BF4 and not that impressive, etc. Which is an interesting mix. What impresses me the most visually about this game is not technical advancements (which are no doubt important), but instead...

Forbes discourages pre-ordering Battlefront

Posted by on Apr 24, 2015 in Star Wars: Battlefront | 0 comments

As well all are aware of by now, Star Wars: Battlefront is already available for pre-order and as much excitement as this game has given us, we think you should have some hesitations about pre-ordering it. One of two scenarios are a possibility when receiving an item that you are totally psyched about that you pre-ordered: you are completely satisfied with the product or after all that excitement, it’s not as great as you thought it would be. The problem is that most of the time we are disappointed with pre-ordered games instead of being satisfied. Most every game that is available for pre-order gives you an incentive in the DLC form. However, the DLC’s are usually totally and completely not worth the pre-order price. We know that EA has a horrible reputation with brand new game releases, for instance, there were major issues with Battlefield 4 during its launch. This is one reason why we think you may want to hold off on pre-ordering. If you think that the end result will outweigh...

Star Wars Battlefront “focusing on planetary battles,” not space combat

Posted by on Apr 23, 2015 in Star Wars: Battlefront | 0 comments

In the new Star Wars: Battlefront you will be able to fly in an X-Wing or TIE Fighter, but don’t even think about space battles or leaving the atmosphere. “Are we going to see space battles?” I asked DICE producer Craig Mcleod. His answer was a bit more politic than “no,” but didn’t leave much room for ambiguity. “We’re focusing on epic planetary battles for this game,” he said. Mcleod stated that Battlefront’s maps will be on four different planets; these are Hoth, Endor, Tatooine, and Sullust. Now, you will be seeing dogfights above these planets and in the trailer that was released by EA you can see a Star Destroyer hanging out in the background. Does this mean that just maybe there will be one level set on a Star Destroyer? Mcleod only gave me a vague answer when I asked. “It’s very important for us to create a true Star Wars environment,” he said. “We want it to feel real. There are so many different aspects to this. It goes from the ground up, really. So when you think about...

DICE dev says Star Wars Battlefront won’t have Battlelog support

Posted by on Apr 23, 2015 in Star Wars: Battlefront | 0 comments

Jesper Nielsenon, DICE assistant producer, has stated on NeoGAF that the Battlelog online service, that allows stat tracking for Battlefield titled games, will not be supporting Star Wars: Battlefront. That article is based on the fact that the Uprise website mentions that Uprise is working on Star Wars Battlefront. While Uprise has been doing Battlelog, does that automatically mean that we will do Battlelog for Star Wars Battlefront? No, it won’t. That can only be an assumption, and I can tell you, no, there won’t be Battlelog for Star Wars Battlefront. Is this a good or bad thing in your opinion? Leave your...

Star Wars: Battlefront Will Return to the “Roots and Ethos” of the Franchise

Posted by on Apr 22, 2015 in Star Wars: Battlefront | 0 comments

As we all anxiously await the release of Star Wars: Battlefront, we enjoy finding any and all information we can about the game. According to DICE general manager Patrick Bach, the upcoming shooter is so much more than a big-budget Battlefield mod. Bach says they are going back to the roots and ethos of the franchise with Star Wars: Battlefront, something that many fans of the series are going to be very happy to see. Eurogamer spoke to the DICE GM about the game and what the studio is doing to make it more than just a “big-budget Battlefield mod.” “Let me go back to when we got our hands on it, when it all started,” Bach said. “The whole idea of building a Star Wars Battlefront game is about two things. First of all, it’s called Star Wars Battlefront for a reason, so [we’re] going back to the roots and the core ethos of that. And then on top of that, it’s Star Wars together with LucasFilm. So we have the opportunity to work with them...
