EA prepared to delay Star Wars Battlefront ‘if it wasn’t right’

Posted by on Jun 28, 2015 in Star Wars: Battlefront | 0 comments

EA announced that they were prepared to delay Star Wars: Battlefront past November if something was to go wrong during the games launch, said COO Peter Moore. After speaking to MCV, Mr. Moore said that “you can’t ship it if it doesn’t work or the quality isn’t right. You just bite the bullet. Trust me, shipping Hardline in March was not the easiest thing to do from a business perspective, but it was the right thing to do from a player perspective.” “We’d have no compunction, no hesitation that if something went wrong with Battlefront, if it wasn’t right, we would just push it.” “But that’s not going to happen,” he continued. “The game is playable with 40-players already, and it is rock solid, so it ain’t going to happen”. Mr. Moore’s comments come after 18 months when the publisher saw some major problem during the launch of Battlefield 4, which was a similar online shooter as Star Wars: Battlefront.  Star Wars: Battlefront...

STAR WARS: BATTLEFRONT – I SLAUGHTERED AS LUKE SKYWALKER

Posted by on Jun 28, 2015 in Star Wars: Battlefront | 0 comments

Zachary Ryan from IGN.com was one of the lucky people who got to play a demo of Star Wars: Battlefront at E3. We are going to recap his story and his experience with the upcoming game. First, Ryan says that he is terrible at Star Wars: Battlefront and it didn’t surprise him because he doesn’t do well with shooters. He stated that he died 15 times during the first few minutes of gameplay but he did keep pressing on. Once, he respawned in a tunnel away from the battle zone and he saw a power icon. He grabbed it and noticed in the bottom of his screen that Luke Skywalker was waiting for him to take over. As he became Luke Skywalker and walked confidently to the battlezone, he pulled out his lightsaber. The camera then zoomed out to a third person camera angle and he felt powerful and alive. Luke Skywalker’s movements were extremely fluid and not nearly as clumsy as the regular Rebel Soldier. When he jumps, he really fly’s high. He then proceeded to run up a ledge and come up behind two...

Star Wars: Battlefront is Not Like Battlefield

Posted by on Jun 27, 2015 in Star Wars: Battlefront | 0 comments

  We’ve heard the comparisons before so I’m sure you have as well: Battlefront is going to be just like a Star Wars themed Battlefield. Right? Wrong. Actually, Star Wars: Battlefront is not going to vary from Battlefield in a variety of ways. Let’s take a look. First, shooting and vehicles are going to be different. These are some of the most important aspects of a Battlefield game so it’s very important to distinguish how Battlefront will be different. Customization options are also different in Battlefront. Presentation-wise, it’s definitely a Star Wars game and you won’t just feel like it’s a skinned Battlefield game. Hardcoregamer.com tells us more: To get this out of the way, Star Wars: Battlefront is not a Battlefield game. Battlefront does share some similar mechanics with the Battlefield franchise, but not enough to say this is Battlefield: Star Wars. If anything, Star Wars: Battlefront is extremely faithful to the previous...

Star Wars Battlefront Speeder Bikes Are Not On-rails

Posted by on Jun 27, 2015 in Star Wars: Battlefront | 0 comments

  All Star Wars fans will be happy to know that the Speeder Bike in Star Wars: Battlefront will not be on-rails in the game. The community manager for EA, Mathew Everett, answered some question about the game on Reddit not long ago. One fan asked if the Speeder Bike on Endor will be only on-rails in Star Wars: Battlefront. Everett replied with a “no” meaning you are able to drive them yourself. In the original Star Wars: Battlefront games, Speeder Bikes were playable without any kind of assistance from the gaming mechanics. Because of this, it was extremely easy to crash out often and we are interested in seeing how DICE will balance out this in the new game. Everett has also confirmed that the Walker Assault mode in Star Wars: Battlefront will not be the only mode that has vehicles in them. However, we won’t know all the details until a later date. The last thing that Everett said was that player will not be able to hog vehicle power ups if they don’t use them. Overall, it...

E3 2015 Game Of The Show Nomination: Star Wars: Battlefront

Posted by on Jun 24, 2015 in Star Wars: Battlefront | 0 comments

  After the Star Wars Celebration and the announcement that Star Wars: Battlefront will have less maps and modes than in the previous series, there has been tons of criticism. However, the past history of the Star Wars franchise doesn’t really mesh well with what DICE is currently trying to do with Battlefront. The main concept for the game remains the same, fighting against many foot soldiers in the middle of the Star Wars universe. The rest of the game is quite different though and that’s the whole reason why it’s not being named Star Wars: Battlefront 3, they are completely starting over. Most people say that Star Wars: Battlefront is basically just a Battlefield game with a Star Wars theme, and they are correct. It’s not a bad thing at all and there are some differences in gameplay, but it’s still a DICE game all the way. When you compare Star Wars: Battlefront with its older versions, the scale is much larger. The large explosions, fighting on icy Hoth, and battling AT-ATs...
