Star Wars Battlefront 2

Postby Prey » Wed Oct 29, 2014 9:51 am

EA/DICE officially announces Star Wars Battlefront III is set for a holiday 2015 release date...

EA CEO Andrew Wilson confirmed the news during an investor relations call today. Battlefront is EA's big holiday blockbuster, and as such, the next Battlefield game won't arrive until Holiday 2016. "This allows us to have a major first-person shooter title each year," an EA executive said.

There are rumblings that the game will be strictly first person with no external 3rd person camera mode like the older games though. If that's true it will suck as the beauty of the game was being able to have that specific option to change on the fly as you wished.

Nope! 3rd is idiotic as it gives people round corner vision. 1st locked is best. Wish it would be for drivables too.

Bit of a bummer that it's first person only. I really hope they don't go for the whole super realism and grit kind of thing. The previous games in the series are great because they are just arcadey fun on a huge scale. I hope they don't neuter being able to play solo with bots either.

Basically, if this turns into Battlefield-Battlefront then I will be seriously irritated.

Having both was a staple of the entire gameplay experience.

Star Wars™ Battlefront™ to debut at Star Wars™ Celebration Tee Emm....

http://starwars.ea.com/news/battlefront ... elebration

We’re thrilled to share that Star Wars Battlefront will be taking part in Star Wars™ Celebration next month in Anaheim, CA from April 16-19. We could not think of a better or more appropriate place to debut the game officially for the first time than the premier event that celebrates the Star Wars universe and the legions of fans who have fallen in love with it.

Battlefront playable "first on Xbox One"...

I'm assuming it will be via EA Access which Sony or the PC for that matter doesn't have. So an extra 5 days of beta testing might just work out AOK for all involved at the end of the day. :)

This is a funny one. On paper it's hard for me to see how DICE are going to make it something special they have a steady hand but not really an exciting one for me. With the obvious cash in with the film coming out its also making me think not too much effort or money needs to be spent on development to make it a hit with the masses of fanboi waiting to snatch up anything SW related.

On the other I could be bonkers and it will be amazeballs

I'm guessing the end game will be ever so slightly different looking :lol:
