5 things you already Know EA will do with Star Wars Battlefront:

1) It will have 'Premium'
2) It will have a Season Pass for all the DLC map packs
3) It will have separate micro-transaction for guns and vehicles
4) It will be casual friendly (auto-aim, perks, big hit-boxes)
5) It will have console exclusive content

jamal10001041d ago

While I do hope for better, I totally agree. It is a shame really.

carlingtat1041d ago

Isnt premium just another word for season pass? I dont mind it having DLC as long as the dlc isnt ripped from the original game. What makes you think it will be casual friendly?

ArchangelMike1041d ago (Edited 1041d ago )

1) It's a Star Wars IP
2) It's a Disney property
3) It's published by EA

In other words, mass market appeal will be the undelying marketing strategy.

carlingtat1041d ago


Fair enough with it being Star Wars and EA but I dont think it being Disney property will matter unless they make it E for Everyone which I cant see happening with a shooter. Hardcore is always an option anyway.

6) It will, despite all those points, be awesome

iSuperSaiyanGod1041d ago

Why is there a dislike? Must be the anti dlc nazis

ArchangelMike1041d ago

Agreed. Sonce DICE are the devs - Yes it will be awesome. I can wait for that trailer. Only 2hrs to go as of time of writing this :)

I have to say though, we do have a long history of devs claiming bullshots and CGI target renders are "actual gameplay", should I dare to believe that DICE are telling the truth this one time???

starrman19851041d ago

I can feel the EA dislike, I have to admit - I don't really like a lot of their practices, but they deliver good games!

And as this is DICE I'm confident it will be great.

Allsystemgamer1041d ago

Pay for premium to get increased non movie like accuracy as a stormtrooper

Ristul1041d ago

7) Grind for like 30 hours to get anything good or just pay us money and we will give you these cool weapons and shit on the spot.

hkgamer1041d ago

im gonna do an even bigger prediction and go for fuel and ammo(?) DLC.

on a more serious note, it will probably have consumable/currency DLC. its hard to think that EAwouldnt take advantage of microtransactions for such a high profile brand.

AngelicIceDiamond1041d ago

So its EA"s usual practices that will ruin the game, go figure.

Eh I'm thiking it will be a star wars skinned battlefield which is OK imo.

Sgt_Slaughter1041d ago

But that is nowhere near the point of Battlefront...

If that's the case then people could have just made a Battlefield 4 mod and called it a day.

Same goes for Hardline.

NiteX1041d ago

Yeah but then it would have been only on PC!

cmazza1041d ago

Battlefront originally ripped from Battlefield when it first came out anyway

zsquaresoff1041d ago

Ea will make a good game.

Its the dlc and micro transaction packages in game is what I'm worried about.

1. Buy 10x batteries to keep you light saber charged for 2hrs in game.

2. Buy 1 cylinder of oxygen for 20$ to breath in space.

3. Buy fuel in actual market price to make trips.

Ark_1041d ago

DICE will make a good game. EA will fuck up the rest ... propably.

pompombrum1041d ago

It's just a case of taking the rough with the smooth. DICE plus the license to create a Star Wars Battlefront game is a dream pairing, I'm expecting a quality game and they'll certainly deliver. EA will do everything they can to milk everyone for everything they possibly can though and I guess we all just have to cross our fingers that they do it without impacting the experience for those of us who are content with just buying the game.

Chard1041d ago

As long as the base game is fun then count me in for the standard edition. I don't buy dlc of any kind, even for my favourite games.
