E3 2013: Star Wars: Battlefront Won't Be a Battlefield Game

IGN: "Star Wars fans no doubt have plenty of questions about what DICE plans to do with the beloved Battlefront series, but it's still a little too early to tell. The ink is barely dry on the agreement, but DICE specifically hopes it isn't making a Battlefield-themed Star Wars game." (Dice, PC, PS3, PS4, Star Wars Battlefront, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Its running on frostbite 3 and its made by Dice so they have the graphics/huge open maps bonuses like physics down, they just need to be sure to stay true to the original battlefront games.

I am hoping for a little mix of Battlefield in the game.

I swear EA and Dice if you mess this up.You will never hear the end of it from me.

DICE won't mess up anything, it will most likely be EA.

Well considering DICE isn't working on it and EA is. don't get your hopes on.

DICE LA is EA LA, or Danger close games.

The guys who made Medal of honor Warfighter are making the battlefront game.

Possibly the best bit of news from anyone at E3 was this little gem being brought back to life.

Just a shame it's EA at the helm.

Since Battlefront was a Starwars take on Battlefield from the beginning I don't see how that'd be a bad thing. But DICE want to try something different so i wish them luck.

As long as they include instant action with bots I will be happy.

Just make it a cross between Battlestations Pacific and X-Wing vs TIE Fighter.

Let me take control individual troops right up to Death Stars.

is this game mmo?
Moncole  +   852d ago
People need to know. Its not made by the Dice who makes Battlefield because its by the Dice who makes Medal of Honor.

Just hope they dont let battlefield influence this too much and vice versa! We need a reason to continue to play both, if too similar one could easily ignore one or the other
NioRide  +   852d ago
So this is DICE LA right?

The same guys that made Medal of Honor Warfighter game? Just great.

*for those who don't know, DICE LA, is Danger Close Games, or EA LA*

No,it's being developed by The original Dice team in Stockholm.
NioRide  +   852d ago
Not according to the News EA has put out.

Its said that all Star wars titles will be done by DICE LA.

Battlefront was 3rd person. I want this to be 3rd person too.
Kinger8938  +   852d ago
It was, on pc though u could switch to fps, but im with you third person all the way
rezzah  +   852d ago
I want it to be in 3rd person, but it looks like (from previous videos) it'll be a FPS.
spdarksky  +   852d ago
Both 3rd person and first person optional view. Just like the previous Battlefront. As long as they stick to the Battlefront style of play, i'm happy.

And please do not take away Jedi/Sith characters. I wanna play as one.
