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…

Abrams. EA Just confirmed that details and footage for Star Wars: Battlefront will debut during the Star Wars convention in Anaheim, California. The dates are set for April 16-19 and we are hoping to see some type of large announcement at the convention.

Does ‘Battlefield Hardline’ Resolution Bode Ill For ‘Star Wars: Battlefront’?

After a showing of the new Star Wars: Battlefront game was held behind closed doors during the Game Developers Conference, fans are anxiously waiting to see a sneak peak too. However, some are worried that the release of Battlefield: Hardline will put a damper on enthusiasm. Battlefield: Hardline will is using the same engine and is running at sub-1080p resolution on the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4. Could this possibly spoil Star Wars: Battlefront’s design and graphics? The beta for Battlefield: Hardline was supposedly running at 900p on the PlayStation 4 and 720p on the Xbox One. Some have suspected that it would be running at the same resolution rate as Battlefield 4. The developer for the game, Visceral Games, has officially confirmed this after they tweeted on Sunday.
