Battlefront II Will Be a Better Game but Possible Financial Disappointment

If you’re like the rest of us, you might be anxiously awaiting Battlefront II. The thing is, we don’t really know very much about it. That’s how they generally do these games. Anything Star Wars, especially since the new films have started production, is kept under lock and key for the most part, until it’s ready for release. That leaves a lot of open doors for speculation and Mathew Falvai of a90skid.com has some theories on what will happen with Battlefront II. In this post, he describes why he thinks it will be a better game but an overall financial disappointment. “My prediction is that gamers will do what they traditionally do and judge a game based on their last experience. The new Battlefront promises more robust single-player content, and an actual campaign, fixing two of the major issues. With the foundation of a jaw-droppingly beautiful engine and reusable assets already in place, DICE…

Get Your Hands on Battlefront II at EA PLAY

If you’re excited for Battlefront II and want the chance to try it out for yourself, it’s a good idea to be at EA PLAY. So if you’re headed there in June, you’re going to get another extra surprise. In addition to allowing you to play the game, you will also get to see more details about it. This also means those of us at home will hopefully get to learn more about the game. In a recent post detailing that tickets will be bookable for EA PLAY starting April 20, EA revealed that attendees “will get hands on” with the next Battlefront game. If that’s not reason enough for many to buy a ticket, I don’t know what is. EA PLAY is happening from June 10th to June 12th at The Hollywood Palladium in California. This is the second year in a row that EA has had this Pre-E3 event…

EA to Share about Battlefront II at Star Wars Celebration

We’re only a few days away from Star Wars Celebration and that means we’re close to seeing what EA has to reveal about Battlefront II. EA has already promised a reveal trailer for the game on April 15th, but it would seem they are going to give us more than just that. In a post on the forums, Community Manager Mathew Everett teased there could be more info coming for fans. “I am honestly looking forward to the overall reactions,” he wrote. “It’s super easy to speculate currently and wouldn’t expect anything less at this point, but we have a lot to share and Celebration is 10 days away and the reveal just 12 days.” He also had a little something to say about Clone Wars/Prequel Trilogy content, which players have been asking about. “Our team has revealed multiple eras, a bigger game and the title,” he wrote in response to…

No More New Content Updates For Star Wars Battlefront

It appears that Dice won’t release any more new content updates for Star Wars Battlefront. Since it’s no longer a secret that Battlefront 2 is in the works, it’s not really a big chock, but at least we now got an official confirmation on it, as EA Star Wars tweeted out: “There are currently no plans to add any new content updates to Star Wars Battlefront. ” @Gamemaster6481 There are currently no plans to add any new content updates to Star Wars Battlefront. — EAStarWars (@EAStarWars) February 15, 2017 So, I guess we have to stick with the game as it is,  until the sequel is out later this year. The Battlefront sequel from EA will be out in late 2017 and it will have a single player campaign and content from more than just the original trilogy timeline. It should have more content than the aforementioned 2015 video game….

The Story Behind the Doomed Battlefront 3

Sadly, there was a battlefront game that was never meant to be: Battlefront 3. Star Wars Battlefront is an action shooter video game developed by EA DICE, with additional work from Criterion Games, and published by Electronic Arts. Battlefront 3 was the game that we never got. Details and salvaged footage from Free Radical’s Star Wars Battlefront 3 can now be found online. The same game was once in alpha at TimeSplitters development studio, but cancelled. Eventually DICE picked it up and rebooted it, but without any of the original ideas. A Battlefront 3 campaign was going to see twin clones on a mission to boost the Galactic Republic. So fans of Star Wars: Battlefront I and Star Wars: Battlefront II were looking for their Star Wars: Battlefront III and got Star Wars Battlefront instead. A lot of people were disappointed in EA’s Star Wars Battlefront for various reasons. Many will agree…

Gameplay video from the cancelled Star Wars Battlefront 3

Here is a pretty nifty look at the cancelled Battlefront 3’s first campaign mission. The video was uploaded by Youtube User FuZaH who has the following to say about it: Yup, I had some more tucked away. (I seriously apologise for the earrape level of the audio. The footage must’ve been captured like that. I’ve ran it through Premiere to limit the peaks but its still pretty bad. RIP headphone users.) Also; this is alpha footage from early November. I’d assume a few of the bugs in this were worked out in their last build. If any ex-Free Radical/LucasArts developers see this video, and have a build, I would be very appreciative if you contacted me. I’d like to discuss a few things with you. Also, EA, to make up for the disappointment that is “EAFront”, could you just finish this game and release it as Battlefront: Legacy? If you don’t want…
