DICE published today the first Star Wars Battlefield trailer.
This looks absolutely incredible!
It looks incredible! I'm not so happy with the fact that there won't be space battles or single player. But this may be the game that finally puts a fork in Call of Duty and other yearly repetitive shooters with no story driven depth. On a side note, I think it's pretty much confirmed that Sony has the marketing rights to Battlefront. Good move Sony!
It's very cool and surprising that it was presented only with the PS logo. Is this an exclusive now? edit. i see, thanks spaceranger.
Trailer looks incredible, but I don't think the IQ will look this clean in actual gameplay specially on consoles.
How do you know it looks incredible? "Game engine footage" Yeeeah... gonna be wary of that. I'll wait until we see some real gameplay. I don't trust EA.
Space Battles in DLC, we can be sure of it...
I doubt game will be as seamless, but gameplay? Oh lordy, that's why I'm buy it and obviously it's star wars.
Watched it again and it's a good thing that AT-AT was blown up. otherwise it would have gotten stuck in the woods. i mean those things aren't like a compact car that can drive anywhere. it's like driving a semi down a narrow alley, it can be done but then you got to figure out how to get back out.
Um, @SpaceRanger, THIS has no story driven depth - as you put it. There are going to be coop setpieces, basically. Even less than what BF3 and BF4 had. This game is in every way but GFX a step back from a PS2-era title. And that's just amazing.
Im gonna be a pilot!! Its gonna be so sick!
First off....im glad they did not put a single player in this gamer, it would suck ass. The levels look to have insane amount of detail and hopefully we will have at-least 20 maps.
@Conzul You're telling me that a game based off of a 6, going on 7, movies isn't story driven? If you honestly think that the yearly re-hashed shooters are story driven, like the example I gave, then I don't really have much else to discuss in that aspect because they honestly have no depth to them. They already discussed how the missions in battlefront are multiplayer driven to give the sense that you're playing as part of the story with everyone else or your buddy next to you playing split screen. I don't see how that's less co-op than BF4 or Hardline?
I'm as excited about Star Wars as anybody but I'd be careful not to expect too much, I mean the trailer is cool but to me its nothing more than a cinematic trailer which usually makes every game look great graphically. lol, I saw one of the devs tweeted "It's not CGI" but seriously the "Game engine footage" term doesn't say much these days either. Everybody and their brother make cinematic in game engine footage that looks very polished since about mid way through last generation consoles. I think lately this type of strategy of showing high end PC stuff or cinematic setpieces with those misleading labels are why a lot of times folks think games have been downgraded...'cause they saw a early "game engine footage" trailer, NOT actual gameplay. I'm optimistic, sure with DX12 on a high end PC the actual gameplay graphics might come close to what we see here but until I see actual gameplay on a console (X1 version) then its just another game added to my long list of potential games I might buy later this year. At this point I'm more concerned with how it will play though???
Yea till EA starts pushing out a new Star Wars game every Nov.
@patricko No, I'm sure all the environments will be on-disc. Your playable character and everything else will be DLC though =/
Well....it was a neat cutscene, I guess. It's still an EA game, though. It will probably shove the space battles (confirmed to not be in the game!!) into DLC.
i wonder what high end computer this is playing on. look at the scene with boba fett and the draw distance and the lighting in the woods.
sony has marketing rights but i believe xbox one users can play it first via EA Access.
Looks good but the gameplay changes they've made to it has put me off a little. Seems like it's going to become like every other multiplayer game with a Star Wars skin. No Campaign No Space Battles No Classes Sounds like it will have killstreaks, perks, louadouts, maybe weapons mods I mean like I've said in another article the classes kept it balanced and were logical. Why would a normal Stormtrooper for example be allowed to carry the equipment a Shock Trooper has or know about Engineering If those changes are fully confirmed then I'm done with EA, the one sequel I've been waiting years for and they make it like every other online game instead of it being Battlefront.
That would be a giant mistake; I doubt they would do it. BTW, the stream in which the trailer was revealed is happening now: http://starwars.ea.com/star... It is quite nice. A lot of PR talk, but some nice info too.
No Campaign No Space Battles No Classes I think you are forgetting how video games work this day and age. Don't give the consumer everything in one package, give them just enough and then keep the interest going through DLC. I'm sure space battles (which I was looking forward too) will be in some kind of future DLC pack. Other than that I think this game looks fantastic, regardless of it's updated features for the modern FPS audience.
Wait...no classes!? Can I get a link on that?? Been really dissappointed so far. That trailer isn't fooling me, it's nothing like the gameplay will actually be. Can't believe no death star battle, that's a big no no. No campeign really sucks, it's got "Battlefront missions", lets see how those turn out. I really wish it hadn't been EA on this because I knew from the get go they would do something stupid, but this sounds even more stupid than I expected. The gameplay had better be spectacular. I might wait instead of getting it day 1, if they announce they're releasing those things as DLC, they can forget it, I won't give them my money.
@ninsigma http://n4g.com/news/1710837... ""In Star Wars Battlefront you can freely choose what weapons, what gear and what ability you want to bring. You will not be restricted to a specific class. We want to encourage the freedom to create your own fantasy"
Thanks for that! That really sucks :/ Hopefully we get more than what it seems!
No campaign... I stopped reading right there to know that I'm not gonna buy this EVER! From Titanfall to this, I can't justify buying online only games anymore. But regardless, this looks great.
I forsee EA will become the most powerful third-party publisher of all... you'll see - this deal with the Disney is but a cover for the secret construction of a second Death Star! Buy the DLC, buy it all - God knows I will - but don't say I didn't warn you.
Highly impressive despite them showing off the actual in game engine and not gameplay. I dunno if this will "break the internet" but damn those visuals are something else.
How can all of you be so negative already ? It's like you WANT to be mad all the time. They have pills for that.
I'm not pleased didn't see any actual gameplay with Jedi battles. But I also see a lot of hypocrisy some people saying they're wary it's not gameplay but they were loving the deus ex cgi trailer not too long ago that showed 0 gameplay.
More disagrees than agrees?! What the hell is wrong with you people!
The gameplay visuals will be no where near this level.
was that ps4 logo? wow.
Holy sh*t, are people really disagreeing with you that it looks incredible? Some people are ridiculous. That trailer was truly impressive. Doubt all you want that the gameplay will look good, but there is no doubt that this trailer looks amazing. Disagreeing with that is just stupid. No, the gameplay won't look exactly as good as this. The cinematic camera angles and the animation alone make many trailers look better than the games' actual gameplay. But this does show us what the engine is capable of and the general look of the assets involved.
I am excited to see how this turns out as I grew up on the battlefront games. But this does nothing for me. There was no gameplay in the video. You could say that you can get excited knowing how good the graphics are, but knowing EA and how they downgrade every game from what they first showed, there is nothing I can really get excited for. EDIT: I Just learned there is no single player or Space battles. The hype has just died for me.
be prepared close to release the "downgrade" chants will start
I agree. I know its early, but so far the visuals are stunning. They almost look completely photorealistic.
Who so many disagrees?
This is for the players. Greatness awaits
you honestly got excited from this trailer so many scripted events and lol at the 'ingame footage' disclaimer
I know that the graphics won't look like that, I know that it won't be as exciting as they show it, and that it will have a high possibility of being a dump, but I'm excited for a star wars shooter handled by DICE knowing all that. So hopefully I'll have fun playing it. =)
I was expecting actual in game gameplay and not this scripted fight scene. :/
Me too as in-engine can mean anything these days and today's engines are often made with allowing creation of near cgi-quality cutscenes in mind (in other words don't expect it to look like the trailer--it will undeniably look great but not that impressive). I'm still excited though but "in-engine" can be extremely misleading nowadays. I'll wait for real gameplay to make a better informed decision about the game itself but I'm still looking forward to the game.
I'm still waiting for the internet to break...
More coal for the hype train!
pretty disappointing trailer if you ask me
Holy crap!!! The King has returned.
A-W-E-S-O-M-E Excited I am for this game.
Graphically speaking, it looks incredible! Sadly though, it seems like a step back from Battlefront 2 gameplay wise. Have they mentioned whether or not they will cover the Clone Wars too or is it just the GCW?
It's just the original trilogy, but as far as gameplay goes I'd have to disagree with you only because we haven't actually seen any gameplay to make an accurate assessment of how the gameplay is.
So no space battles, no campaign and an entire era missing, that already effects the gameplay dramatically in my eyes and makes it look like a step back from Battlefront 2.
No prequel, no single player, and no space battle. It's not looking good for Battlefront.
You do know that omitting the prequels doesn't affect gameplay though right? It may not have as much replay value to you, but it doesn't change or alter the core gameplay. As someone who grew up on the original trilogy I'm ecstatic that the prequels aren't a part of Battlefront. The less I have to see of it the better. After seeing this awesome new trailer for Force Awakens why the hell would I ever want to think about the prequels again?
Aweseom! and yep, that's ingame alright!
STOP IT!!! STOP THE HYPE!! this is EA GAME (EVIL) those are clearly not ingame graphics. every new game does that first trailer they show off unbelivable trailer then at release you get half finished game with 4 maps, tons of bugs and graphics no where near this trailer... SO STOP IT !!
They are in game graphics, dice use a new tech which allows it to look this good. Route for Dice who are brilliant scandinavian game making gods not bastard EA ;) Personally i love getting hyped, i love games and i enjoy getting excited for games which i think i'd like. I'm not ashamed in saying I find hype fun and wish people would be a little less negative about every thing. I can't even imagine how frustrated i'd be being a developer in this age. Its hard for me to say this without sounding like im attention seeking but this is obviously the best looking game ever shown (bold statement but id be happy if anyone can show me a better looking one) down to the fluid animations, and insane particle effects despite 40 players on map as well as a.i. Videogames have evolved so much so fast over the last few decades and what ive just witnessed was practically gaming history. Remember when you used to think 'itd be awesome if game graphics would be as good as movie cgi, well its here and people still find away to bitch on about the most pointless things. Im so worn down by it all. Waaa ill stop whining like a little girl now my bad.
Bro, I don't know if you are stupid or trolling or both. But if you actually believe that battlefront is actually going to look like this, then you are the most gullible gamer I have ever seen on the internet no exaggeration.
Why are people so quick to dislike the looks of this? The fact that people are diagreeing with comments saying its what the in game graphics will look like just show how unbelievable this game looks. Im not stupid this isnt gameplay but the models, particle effects, lighting, textures are from there new photogrammetry engine which makes it possible for it to look this good. The bad reactionsare a testiment for how incredible this game looks as people are in such disbelief that it will look like it, i even get called stupid for thinking that it actually looks this good. Doesnt this excite anyone else that games have reached this level?? I dont know how the gameplay will be but its obvious to see the huge leap Dice has made and will probably be a big part in how future games are made. Im dissapointed that on N4G a site which, correct me if im wrong, is used by people who like videogames is the spawn for so much hate and ignorance on fuckety fuck feck feck off going to bed cant be arsed whats the point goodnightlovers
Yeah, how dare they be excited that a game they have waited for for ten years is finally releasing?! Everything considered, there is a new Star Wars film AND Battlefront coming out in the fall of this year, exciting times for fans.... Even if either or both turn out disappointing, its difficult not to be excited right now.
I highly doubt that's actual gameplay.
It's not. It actually says so at the end that it isn't gameplay.
Its fake 2:09 Read the fine print.
it's happening http://uboachan.net/yn/src/...
And that what suppose to break the Internet haha! Nice jk EA😒
Internet is still not broken, not even experienced a flinch you exagerating, different release date giving, no space battles, no singleplayer, peorder bonus giving F*cks. Now if that was gameplay then HOLY MOTHER OF something, and it looked like that. BOOM no more internet.
Oh my God, I have to wait eight days for a free map. Boo Hoo.
WTH are you talking about?
the preorder bonus is a free map. you get it 8 days early if you pre order. they aren't releasing it on day one because episode 7. they want the hype to be real.
My body and GTX 970 is ready.
THIS!! is what you think can "break the internet?" If that was the case, the internet would have been broken every day because Battlefield is already out!!
