Star Wars: Battlefront

Making Star Wars: Battlefront Authentic

Star Wars Battlefront palpatin

Most Star Wars fans will agree that the only thing better than watching Star Wars would be to actually be there yourself. This is why Star Wars games have tried for decades to create as much of a real, immersive experience as possible. They want you to feel like you’re really there. They want you to experience Star Wars. Star Wars: Battlefront is the most recent game to attempt to take us to a galaxy far, far away. One of my favorite gaming/tech sites, Gamasutra tells us about how they captured the iconic look and sound of Star Wars in the game: Released just a month before The Force Awakens made its theatrical debut, Battlefront tasked EA DICE with bringing Star Wars to life like never before. The challenge was clear: capture the essence of Lucas’ revered original trilogy and rekindle the romance after the bitter break-up that were the prequels. The consensus…

EA’s ‘Battlefront’ Burden: We Can’t Violate the ‘Star Wars’ Canon

rendition1.img_-640x360

As far as Star Wars Battlefront is concerned, all must remain in the past. EA is bound by the canon and they can’t violate this, placing obvious restrictions on what they can do with story and game design elements. This means, despite the popular of the new heroes from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, there will be no plans to add Rey or Finn to future Battlefront expansion packs. It’s not that EA is against the new heroes. In fact, there’s a pretty obvious and logical reason for it. “Battlefront” is based on the science-fiction franchise’s original trilogy released between 1977 and 1983. “The Force Awakens” is set about 30 years after “Return of the Jedi.” It may sound obvious to some fans but then again, in a video game reality, we often like to think that we can change things as we choose and have fun with it. That’s true……

star wars battelfront 3

Many Bothans died to bring us this information. But seriously, someone got their hands on the cancelled Star Wars Battlefront III build and released it. We don’t know how to he did it. We’re not even going to ask. But it’s definitely interesting. The poster claims he’s not even a Star Wars fan but he just likes prototype games like this. A couple of days ago, 4chan user ProtoFaggot posted a development build of the game to /v/, 4chan’s video game board. He’s also posted this on /r/StarWarsBattlefront. We’re including the post in full to you below.

Episode VII Stormtrooper in EA Battlefront Files?

star wars battlefront

Here’s a rumor (or possible hoax) for you regarding Star Wars Battlefront. Someone claims to have found game files that indicate there might be First Order Stormtroopers in the game. He created a video for it showing these models/files. AngryEchidna says, “In the workshop for SFM i noticed a file that had models from Starwars Battlefront (The third main one) and among the files uploaded is a highly detailed New Order Stormtrooper. I put some of the other models from Battlefront in the video so you can compare the level of detail for yourself.” See the video here: So what do you think? People are skeptical, and rightly so. So far, no one else has been able to replicate it so it’s really looking like it might just be a hoax. When you add in the fact that the video came out just after the game was launched, there’s a very…

Star Wars: Battlefront Has Basically the Same Staff of Developers

Star Wars Battlefront

A lot of fans have questions about the development team behind Star Wars: Battlefront. A common complaint is that they just don’t seem to be communicating well with the fans/players in regard to the game, status of changes, and other important details. When it comes to communities like this, communication is very important, as we learned with SWTOR. When they had community managers in place to help facilitate questions and concerns, as well as announcements between the developers and the players. It’s an important job. Star Wars: Battlefront seems to be lacking in the official community manager department and it’s affecting how some players see the game, as well as their opinion of the professionalism of DICE and EA. Some think it gives the impression the developers don’t care and it’s left others wondering if DICE was even still on the project. This tweet from DICE’s Dennis Brannvall confirms: @LukeMoonkiller…
