Star Wars Battlefront

What Star Wars: Battlefront Needs for a Great eSports Scene

Ten years on from the superb Star Wars: Battlefront II from Pandemic Studios and LucasArts in 2005, and following many rumours about a third edition to the Battlefront series, EA DICE and Electronic Arts released the much-hyped Star Wars: Battlefront in 2015. With stunning graphics and the chance to play as iconic characters and classes from the epic film franchise, people were over the moon with the chance to finally play another triple-A Star Wars game. Lacking in depth, but coming with a rather grubby DLC line-up, fans had high hopes that the sequel, Star Wars: Battlefront II in 2017 would improve on the first of the reboot games. Sadly, mired in controversy of bad publishing practices, Battlefront II was an utter disappointment. EA DICE have tried to earn back community support with a stream of updates that continue to this day, but instead, much of the community has reverted…

Star Wars: Battlefront 2 – Chosen One patch notes

Here are the full patchnotes for yesterdays game update for Star Wars: Battelfront. There are big changes coming to the Clone Trooper legions with each Trooper Class now getting their own look, relevant to the legion that they are a part of. This also sees the first time that Officers will be able to equip Clone Trooper armour. Additionally, there’s been a lot of discussion around stuns and their effect on the flow of gameplay. With stuns now having a lower duration and a short immunity once you have been stunned, we’re looking forward to seeing how these changes improve the experience. ANAKIN SKYWALKER Anakin’s power and skill were virtually unmatched, though his overconfidence and anger could get the better of him. Even still, when innocent people were in danger, he would never hesitate to put his life on the line to save them. When his friends needed his help,…

He will be joining the rebel/ non imperial side, and the devs have promised that he’s going to be “one of the strongest light side heroes in Battlefront II.” He should be strong lore-wise, of course, but it sounds like he could be a great big problem in terms of gameplay. Here is the news: Star Wars™Battlefront™ II’s The Chosen One Update* is slated to go live February 27, and as the name suggests, it’s time for one of the renowned heroes from the Clone Wars, Anakin Skywalker**, to lead the way on the battlefront.

Star Wars: Battlefront 2: Progress Update on New Mode + Emote Wheel

The Star Wars: Battelfront 2 team over at DICE posted a new Community Transmission: To start things off, we wanted to talk a little about the upcoming, non-linear game mode since it’s been such a popular topic in the community. Development is progressing well, but we wanted to let you know that we’ve made the very tough decision to move the release of the new game mode into March. At the core of this choice is our desire to keep the quality of this mode high. It’s always disappointing when we have to move things around, not just for you but for ourselves as well. We’re incredibly eager to see the new game mode hit our live servers, but we also want to ensure that when it launches it’s the best state it can be. However, this extra time is also allowing us to create two brand new reinforcements which we want…

Star Wars: Battlefront 3 Is Coming Out

After long and tedious debates around the monetary concept of Star Wars: Battlefront 2, the sequel to the action game may finally be released in fiscal 2020. During the Q3 2018 earnings call, Electronic Arts (aka EA) announced that Stars Wars: Battlefront 3 will be launched by Respawn Entertainment — a company acquired by EA in November 2017 — between April 2019 and March 2020.   The release of the next Star Wars game looked bleak as early as in the middle of 2018 when the video gaming industry was shaken by a startling comparison of loot boxes with gambling. The so-called packs (that were also peculiar to Star Wars: Battlefront 2) required a stroke of luck and a great deal of money to get a certain item. Such a combination was then considered as gambling, equating loot boxes with vintage slots, roulette, and other casino games of chance. The…
