Star Wars: Battlefront’s 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…

Obsidian Create Stunning Star Wars Environments


Pillars of Eternity developer Obsidian have a soft spot for Star Wars, or at least some of their artists do, who – reportedly in their spare time – put their skills and the power of the Unreal 4 engine to use, creating some superb Star Wars environments, which aren’t matched details-wise by any of the movies or games of the Star Wars universe. Considering the level of detail and image quality achieved by some of Star Wars: Battlefront’s incarnations, that is quite a statement to make, but it holds true nonetheless. The said environments are rendered in real time and they can actually be downloaded and explored. Obviously though, one does need a powerful computer to do that. Also involved in the project – besides other members of the Obsidian development team – was senior environment artist Jason Lewis, who did not shy away from going into all sorts of…

Battlefield 1 Beta Numbers Outshine Star Wars: Battlefront


If beta player numbers are anything to go by – and by all accounts, they probably are – DICE’s Battlefield 1, a title currently under public testing, is set to handily soar by both Battlefield Hardline and Star Wars: Battlefront in regards to eventual sales and player numbers. What exactly are we talking about though? Here’s the low-down: it is estimated that currently there are some 681k people from around the globe playing the beta version of Battlefield 1. 43% of these people are playing on PS4, 34% on Xbox One and 23% on PC. By comparison, the beta of Star Wars: Battlefront drew some 374k players at its peak. During its first 6 months, the game then proceeded to sell some 14 million copies, which means that for every beta player, 37 actual players picked up the game when its full version became available. By extrapolation, that means that…

Star Wars: Battlefront Death Star to Launch “Very Soon”

Star Wars Battlefront Death Star to Launch Very Soon

While we still do not have an actual release date for Star Wars: Battlefront’s Death Star DLC, it’s safe to assume at this point that the add-on will be released very soon indeed. According to the latest reports, lighting artist Oscar Carlen is already working on the game. When asked when he would get around to working on the expansion, he tweeted out that he was already working overtime on it, to “make the Emperor happy”. Apparently, lighting work is among the last finishing touches, so if work has indeed progressed that far, it’s safe to assume that the release itself is close by. The speculation is based on what Battlefront lead designer Dennis Brannwall stated during his Outer Rim live stream way back in March. According to Brannwall, lighting artists are always the ones who come in latest to the level which has to be all finished by that…
