My prayers have been answered after so many years. :D

YES. Since the ps2 days I've wanted a new battlefront and when it was announced I almost peed myself. I just hope dice doesn't turn it into battlefield with a Star Wars skin

CorndogBurglar1592d ago

But...the previous Battlefront games were very similar to Battlefield games of that time. The only real difference was that you could be hero type characters in some missions. But for the most part it was just two teams with a limited amiunt of "tickets" and you had to capture command points throughout the map. The more you had, the quicker the enemy's tickets drained. They also drained every time someone died.

So yeah, Battlefron has always been very much like Battlefield. I'm not sure where people get the idea that it wasn't.

Rimeskeem1592d ago

The first thing they said was that they are trying to make it NOT battlefield with a Star Wars skin

guitarded771592d ago

Amen. I was one of the LucasArts forum peeps who chased every rumor and leak and cancellation. I just HOPE (no pun intended, I hate puns) DICE keeps it a 3rd person focused shooter. I know there was a first person option, but SWBF was meant to be played in 3rd person to take in all the epicness.

LOOK_AT_THIS_I1592d ago


Similar game modes but battlefront was SOCOM in a Star Wars universe.

If it is a 3rd person game I'm all in, if it's a 1st person shooter I'll pass.

guitarded771592d ago

I wouldn't compare Battlefront to SOCOM at all. I think games like Warhawk/Starhawk copied the Star Wars Battlefront formula a bit. SWBF really concentrated on Zones/Capture and Hold, just in every nerd's favorite universe. SOCOM was very objective oriented, and traditionally one kill and you're out. Like Counter Strike kinda.

Chrischi19881592d ago

Be patient guys, this is EA we are talking about. They are the masters destroying franchises. Just like Command and Conquer Generals 2... they just cancelled it...

Don't get your hopes to high.This is just the first date before it gets delayed at least 3 times pushing it back to late 2016 and thats being hopeful.

starchild1592d ago

And how do you know this?

warczar1592d ago

The battlefront games were delayed because Lucas Arts was run by an a-hole who sabotaged his development teams on a regular bases. Lucas Arts doesn't have anything to do with this game so it should come out close to its release date.

tdog1251592d ago (Edited 1592d ago )

I would not believe that this game is coming summer of 2015 this is the only website that is reporting this

TripC501592d ago

I only pray for peace on earth and Battle Front 3... That's about it.

Agheil1592d ago

Where did EA announce this? No one is questioning the source ?

assdan1592d ago

What I'm worried about is i's just going to be future battlefield. Battlefront had classes that were incredibly diverse, and I'm hoping it remains the same.

3-4-51592d ago

Summer Release in 2015 to go along with the Movie that is releasing around same time. Awesome.

quantae061592d ago

I'm ready! Star Wars Battlefront 2 on Playstation 2 was the first full game I played online with. My first online experience definitely went well. I had some good times with it. I'm pick this one up for PC. :)

KnightRobby1592d ago

This info is unfortunately outdated. The game is set to release alongisde Episode VII around December 2015, not Summer 2015.

Seems too soon.Let's hope it's not delayed.

elazz1592d ago

Let's hope they worked long and hard for this game for the release to be more or less flawless and that it will exceed expectations!

Nathan1701592d ago (Edited 1592d ago )

I've seen so many games delayed this gen that I become a bit pessimistic.
Furthermore,almost nothing of this game has been show to the public.Probably at gamescom...

Neixus1592d ago

Your comment contradicts itself. You say it seems too soon, and hopes it will not be delayed?

Nathan1701592d ago (Edited 1592d ago )

Because I think the game is coming too soon It has possibilities of being delayed but I hope that's not the case.
Maybe it wasn't the best combination of words...

Debaitable1592d ago

Yeah I think it's too soon myself. I don't see why they can't delay to put more work on it. It would be a better release if it coincides with the movie and holidays.

tdog1251592d ago

Don't expect is summer 2015 till we get actual confirmation from a trailer

Majin-vegeta1592d ago (Edited 1592d ago )

Well this is from last year.

cant wait to snipe me some ewoks.I still have nightmares of them from SWBF2.

Neixus1592d ago (Edited 1592d ago )

Hopefully they'll show Titanfall how to correctly have npcs in online matches.

Would be so cool if a random ewok invasion happened in the middle of a online match, that fought both teams lol :D
