Star Wars: Battlefront

Star Wars Battlefront Playable First on Xbox One Through EA Access

  Star Wars: Battlefront, which is due for release in late 2015, will be accessible on Xbox One before any other consoles, according to a Microsoft executive. The leader at Microsoft’s games marketing division, Aaron Greenberg, stated to a fan via Twitter that the game will only be playable on the Xbox One before it goes to PlayStation 4 and PC. The reason for this is not explained by Mr. Greenberg, but the most assuming reason is that it will be available for EA Access Members a few days earlier. Currently, EA Access is $5 a month and it gives its members admission to its key releases. Any of the gameplay and saved data will automatically be rolled over once the game is available for everyone. EA tried to give EA Access to PlayStation 4 players as well, but Sony did not accept the membership program. There are also free…

Star Wars Battlefront Reveal Trailer

After many grueling days of waiting for gameplay footage for Star Wars: Battlefront and only having access to concept art, the wait is over! You can now see video gameplay and their mission is quite clear: to make the most beautiful and faithful adaptation of the original trilogy to date. The demo begins on the forest moon of Endor with a group of rebels running through the forest. Three speeder bikes carrying Stormtroopers screech across the screen, and a firefight ensues with more Stormtroopers arriving. Soon this skirmish is interrupted by a gigantic AT-AT stomping through an opening in the forest. Regular firepower is completely ineffectual, even picking up a powerful weapon pick like a missile launcher is no use against the walker’s thick armour. The rebels reach a communications terminal and call in an airstrike from a nearby base.

More on Star Wars: Battlefront April 16-19 at The Star Wars Convention?

As we’ve been anxiously awaiting the release of Star Wars Battlefront this year, we’ve heard next to nothing about it. EA has been very tight-lipped about the details of the game and the progression of the release. It’s possible that EA has been quiet about Battlefront in part due to the late release of Hardline that ran into March. Whatever the reasoning, there is a very good chance we will get some great new info about the game and some fans might even have the opportunity to playtest coming up soon. EA showed Battlefront gameplay footage to retail partners recently and there’s a good chance consumers might see more of it soon. The official Star Wars Convention in Anaheim, California happens on April 16-19 and this would be the perfect time to give some gameplay action and reveals of the game to consumers. EA also told us the “first look”…

Could a Star Wars: Battlefront Novel Be in the works?

The new paperback version of A New Dawn is on the verge of publication and it features a official timeline. This timeline gives you information about different types of media surrounding the Star Wars saga. There is an interesting note in this that shows a new novel is in development in addition to Aftermath and Dark Disciple. Many will think that the Battlefront title is only referring to the upcoming video game, you should know that television shows are only listed as television shows and movies are listed separately. Based on these terms, a conclusion has been drawn that a video game should be listed under its own separate banner as well, but this is not labeled as such. There is no definite answer yet, but we think a new novel is sure to come. Image via Star Wars Books @swbooks

‘Star Wars: Battlefront’ 5 Features Fans Want Most: 2015 Release Date, Gameplay, Story, DLC And More

As many of you know,  Star Wars: Battlefront  was confirmed to be showcased at Star Wars Celebration on  between April 16th and 19th of this year by EA and DICE. Fans don’t have very much information at all about Star Wars: Battlefront but let’s go over some aspects the game needs to have to really wow the crowd. The Star Wars: Battlefront legacy is notorious for being a first person shooter style game and nothing else. Many longtime players will remember that both “Battlefield” games did offer players a choice between first and third person shooters. Many fans enjoy the option of this style of gameplay, so we think creators definitely need to include this in the game. Fans of Star Wars: Battlefront typically love the multiplayer gameplay but we think creators need to focus on a more expansive story line as well. There have been a few rumors that suggests a…

Star Wars: Battlefront Just a Month Away

  Star Wars fans only have about a month to wait for the unveiling of Star Wars: Battlefront, quite possibly the most hotly anticipated Star Wars gaming title ever. While they will not be able to get their hands on the game just yet (the title is set for a December 2015 release), they will probably be able to feast their thirsty eyes on some in-game action and the hype-machine will be fed some new crumbs of information/details to keep its gears turning. Officially announced at last year’s E3, Star Wars: Battlefront has already offered a precious few glimpses into the virtual world that EA is hoping will lure scores and scores of players to the title, and everyone was quite impressed with what they saw. Starting April 16 though, at the Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim, CA, fans are likely to see a different beast, with close to a…
