Star Wars Celebration: Battlefront Does Not Have A Campaign

Star Wars: Battlefront will not have a single-player or narrative campaign, DICE revealed to IGN. Rather than a traditional solo outing, Battlefront will rely on a set of short missions which can be played alone, or cooperatively via split-screen or online.

The story is too old to be commented.

Bummer. Let's hope they nail it with the multiplayer. Don't let the game burn out after a few months like the current only multiplayer games.

yeah sucks that there will be no campaign but it will short missions which can be played alone, or cooperatively via split-screen or online sounds good to me good to hear there's Split screen.

Antifan1130d ago

Battlefront 2 had no full campaign. It has a set of missions that you play through the perspective of the 501st clone trooper unit. I'm sure this is no different. I'm more concerned about the no space battles.

gangsta_red1130d ago

How much money you want to throw down that space battles will be DLC somewhere down the line.

700p1130d ago

WELL TBH, this is one of the few games that the multiplayer can actually prob carry this game for awhile.

OrangePowerz1130d ago

Given the track record DICE has in their quality of singleplayer campaigns for MP games that shouldn't be much of a loss.

Man, I always played battlefront for the story and characters....not the multiplayer...

Yea, cause we all know Dice games like Battlefield 4 and 3 had a great campaign and was the bee's knees right? Yea I'll remember those campaigns for the rest of my life.

Was really shocked and disappointed when I heard I wasn't going to experience another one of Dice's epic campaigns in Battlefront! :C

I loved battlefront 1 and 2 campaign so much that I completely forgot the writing,characters,voice acting,and plot because it was just that amazing and that's what I always played battlefront for. My mind just couldn't handle its thought-provoking theme.

whoyouwit041130d ago

Well Guess I wont be picking this up. It looks like Sony will be advertising this has their big holiday game, if I was a Sony fan I would start worrying. There is no way you can spin 3 holidays in a row with a trash first party line up into a positive. Hell at least Microsoft did give us a wash and repeat cycle last gen, but Sony aren't given their fans crap but indies and 3rd party.

Do you listen to yourself when you talk?
If you did, you would realize just how stupid you sound.

georgenancy1130d ago

'but Sony aren't given their fans crap but indies and 3rd party.'
Lol where have you been the past three months

SpaceRanger1130d ago

What's there to worry about? Several games will be releasing before the holidays that people will still get to play. It's not like they disappear after they're released.

And you do realize that E3 is still around the corner. I'm not saying Sony will have some huge announcement for a holiday game at E3, but the fact that they have this marketing deal is going to help them ride the hype wave from Battlefront all the way to when the movie releases.

Thatguy-3101130d ago

We don't rely solely on holiday line ups. We've been getting exclusives es and will be throughout the year. Heck that's one of the reasons I love Sony.

itsjustexuma1130d ago

Xbox will be the one advertising the game not Sony

Avernus1130d ago

Did you see the trailer? There's the PS logo at the start, so yeeeaaaa...

playstation4epic1130d ago

Lol link. Go watch the trailer

I've said it before and will say it again ~ N4G needs a -Bubble selection of "Misinformation" or "False information"... That would severely limit situations like these and/or other complete BS info from getting very far.

Proven wrong the moment you clicked submit.This has got to be a record.

lol... I don't know what you're talking about. PS4 still has the most exclusives between the 2, and something's wrong with 3rd party games and indies now?

You salty about something?

OrangePowerz1130d ago

And now you explain how that has anything to do with the game not having a campaign.

Erik73571130d ago (Edited 1130d ago )

Yea because it's a must to experience Dice amazing story-telling skills and with there great tack record on making amazing single player games I'm sure this would of been a really good single player game...I mean...Battlefield 4's single player was so amazing that it overwhemled my brain and it made me completely forget everything about it....
If only Battlefront 3 would have this single player!!But no they had to focus more on the multiplayer aspect...
PHHH who even played battlefront for the multiplayer?
I remember its great single player!

DigitalRaptor1130d ago (Edited 1130d ago )

I'm not sure if I should vote as "Trolling" or "Off topic". Mostly, I can't believe I share one bubble with the likes of you.

As somebody else asked you earlier, is the holiday all you honestly care about? Do you enjoy waiting 10 months for a big exclusive game to play in one year? I sure as heck prefer a more diverse and unparalleled spread out lineup of games. And that is the choice I made, whilst you are choosing to be bitter about Sony's decisions, when it's all to do with a choice that YOU made to begin with.

PS4 apparently has "crap but indies and third party" but from where most people are looking from it's still the console to own this generation, with way more games and the higher rated games. Sorry to break that to you, but it's a universal truth that should be accepted sooner rather than later.

Out of danger of being voted off-topic, like most people replying to you here, I'll say that I'm not bothered about this having no campaign. I don't think DICE have made a fantastic FPS campaign for years, and I'd rather they focus on maintaining the legacy of a great multiplayer shooter over ticking a box. I'm surprised that EA allowed it to ship without a campaign, so I applaud that decision.

Evolve and Titanfall have tried this recently. We all know what happened.

Perjoss1130d ago

They were not as popular as expected...

kevinsheeks1130d ago (Edited 1130d ago )

Evolve was a wasteland within the first week and titanfall pc community died so swiftly they gave away all the dlc for free and the community still didn't return.

Last i checked titanfall had 800 people playing on one game mode the rest are empty.

mad-dog1130d ago (Edited 1130d ago )

I don't mind a focus on mp and co-op. But SHOW something.

Perjoss1130d ago (Edited 1130d ago )

Apparently they are showing people at the celebration 5 mins of something related to Battlefront (trailer is 2 mins so this is something else), might be gameplay, hopefully it will leak out whatever it is :)

mad-dog1130d ago

Yeah i think it's gameplay. So we'll hear and see about that soon.
It will probably look great, just not rendered inengine cutscene great.
