Star Wars Battlefront: Lessons from Star Wars 1313

Posted by on Nov 13, 2014 in Star Wars: Battlefront | 0 comments

We have talked at length here about Star Wars games- those in the past, current games and games of the future. Looking back at 2012 (it seems like just yesterday) we can recollect on several Star Wars games, including the much-anticipated Star Wars 1313 that would never become a reality. Remember the trailers? Remember E3 and the gameplay footage that got us all excited? Then it was all ripped away from us as we were told that we would not be seeing this game after all. Movie Pilot has some theories that 1313 will live on in a way by potentially influencing Star Wars Battlefront. “But what about Star Wars 1313? Can it leave behind any information for us? A lasting legacy? Can it show us what sort of gameplay we could expect from Star Wars Battlefront 3? Maybe, or maybe not, either way, I just want to look at Star Wars 1313 again and see what could have come our way.” What does the one game even have to do with the other? The author goes on to explain: But how can such a...

Star Wars Battlefront Releases Holiday 2015

Posted by on Oct 29, 2014 in Star Wars: Battlefront | 0 comments

The big news is here! Star Wars Battlefront will release for Holiday 2015. Electronic Arts has announced the launch window finally. While we don’t have an exact date just yet, we know that it’s coming in the holiday season of 2015. May the Force be with you: Star Wars Battlefront will release for Holiday 2015. — Electronic Arts (@EA) October 28, 2014 This means it will release at the same time as J.J. Abrams’Star Wars: Episode VII, which hits theaters on December 18, 2015. in fact, it’s very likely that this was planned deliberately to coincide with the movie release. This fun fact was mentioned in a conference call between EA boss Andrew Wilson and investors and then later confirmed with the tweet above. While the time frame is still vague, it at least gives some direction on how the game is developing and when we can expect to see more about it. Here’s the teaser trailer for Star Wars Battlefront from E3 2013: And from...

Battlefront 3 Footage Available?

Posted by on Oct 20, 2014 in Star Wars: Battlefront | 0 comments

  Well…yes and no…you see, apparently, well before DICE got the fate of one of the world’s most anticipated titles in gaming to fall into their laps, another crew had a run at Battlefront, and they actually put together a nearly-finished product, which – due to a set of unfortunate circumstances – never really got the see the light of day, or rather that of the screens of computer/console users world-wide. The company behind the effort was Free Radical, and according to some, they were about 99% finished with the project when they were forced into administration and when they finally closed for good in December 2008. Later, Crytek picked up the enterprise and transferred the team to various other projects, as Battlefront was cancelled, up until DICE came into the picture earlier this year to step up to the plate. Now then, why exactly is this bit of the game’s well-known troubled history interesting at this point in time? Well, with the game 99% done, there was obviously some...

Star Wars Battlefront Progress Report

Posted by on Oct 8, 2014 in Star Wars: Battlefront | 0 comments

After all the hype DICE’s upcoming Star Wars: Battlefront generated with its brief but spectacular E3 trailer, the noise around the game has died off, especially after it became clear that its release would not happen this year. Still, those who keep an eye on the news regarding the title, will pick up bits and pieces of information dropped by the parties involved in the making of the game one way or another. Representatives of one website apparently got to take a look at an early version of the game, and they were quick to let the hungry community have a couple of crumbs of much-needed information. Apparently, the new Battlefront will have a higher number of high-definition weapons than its predecessors, and there will be a definite strategy involved in wielding and using these weapons. The weapons will apparently dictate the fighting style on the part of the player, and while that has always been the case, the new Battlefront will place an even bigger stress on this aspect of...

Star Wars Battlefront Update: DICE Solve a Problem

Posted by on Oct 2, 2014 in Star Wars: Battlefront | 0 comments

We’re all anxious for Star Wars Battlefront so it’s no surprise we’re looking for every bit of info we can get. This tweet went out a couple of weeks ago from Viktor Lundberg that gives one of the first nuggets of info on the game in a few weeks. Me and @aeonstream just solved a piece of battlefront that noone will ever think of yet it was supervital. We used addition by addition. — Viktor Lundberg (@ViktorALundberg) September 12, 2014 It’s not surprising that fans jumped right on it since we’ve been sitting on edge waiting for any tidbit of into we can get. While he doesn’t reveal what the problem is, he indicates they’ve solved an issue with the game over at DICE. Some speculation says it may have been an issue with Stormtroopers or other characters on the screen. The fact that he tweeted it and in the way that he did indicates it may be something big within the game, or something that had the potential to be big. It could also mean they...
