Star Wars Battlefront: Space to Ground Combat Confirmed?

Moviepilot has come to the conclusion that Star Wars: Battelfront will have Space to Ground Combat. The reason for this, is a game play trailer for the upcoming indie game: “No Man’s Sky” witch is developed by the same game engine. Check out the full article over at Moviepilot.com: Star Wars: Battlefront has yet to receive a release date for 2015, but we’re sure it’ll be hitting the Xbox One, PC and PS4 during the Holiday season of next year.

There is certainly a great deal that we expect from the Battlefront series, and from a Star Wars NextGen game made by DICE and EA. Each player is going to carry their own preferences and expectations for the title, but there’s certainly one thing that we all desire: Space to…

Star Wars Battlefront: Lessons from Star Wars 1313

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…

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.

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….

Battlefront 3 Footage Available?

  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…

Star Wars Battlefront Progress Report

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,…
