Star Wars: Battlefront was finally unveiled today with a new trailer and the opening of pre-orders, but there are still many questions floating around the fanbase. DICE Design Director Niklas Fegraeus answered to many of those.
Glad it's 60fps. I'm just concerned about it being only the original trilogy. Like will others come DLC? Will it be new games completely? They have to be in the cards to include it in the games future at some point. Like is this a new trilogy? It don't matter if people didn't like the new trilogy, the setting and playing it all is what I want.
Honestly I'd rather them go to the old republic than to the new trilogy...
Well the Old Republic would be awesome, but I highly doubt we would see that.
Old republic would be pretty fantastic but battlefront will do for now. This game has replaced Uncharted as my second most anticipated game after the Almighty MGS
And I'd rather see stuff from Episode VII than the prequel trilogy.
Boom... I completely agree with completely. Everyone's so focused on getting the prequel stuff in there that they haven't stopped to think of all the cool stuff they'll be adding that ties into episode 7. They're probably just waiting to release that stuff until after the movie releases so they don't spoil key locations. You know that Kylo Ren will show up as a hero. I'd bet money on it.
@isa_scout I want Kyle Katarn to show up, do academy things. But that's just a pipe dream....
Plus covering the original trilogy sets up the chronology for the forthcoming films. The scope of this game reminds me of the Star Wars Trilogy Arcade game. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/w...
I thought they already announced that the force awakens will be added to the game after the movie comes out.
* First REAL DLC ( not battle of Jakku), will be released AFTER the movie releases, so at that point, they can include a planet or some stuff that links to Episode 7. Obviously they aren't going to be allowed to spoil the movie at all, with the game being released before, so they kept that stuff in DLC until after the film I'm guessing. Even then....it's probably limited to maybe even a later DLC date into 2016 just to make sure there are no spoiler plot leaks.
The prequel trilogy was the least played stuff on battlefront 2. Why would they waste time and resources on something very few people want or like? They're going to include episode 7. It releases too soon to it to not. The worst part of BF2 was droids vs clones. The droids were all so boring to look at and play as.
More than 2 maps on each planet. More than 8. I'm thinking 14. 12 & 2 with the DLC for Jakku when that releases. Gamestops site says it comes with 2 maps from that world. * " more than 2 per map" would seem like at least 3 per map then right ? * oh and this isn't just normal stuff.... It's Star Wars. It's like an event....these things don't happen to often if you haven't noticed. I'm just hyped I get to play Star Wars.
Could the prophecy be fulfilled? Could this be it? The coming of the one they will call COD KILLER?
new trilogy=whack and would be terrible to play in/as
Instant Action - Mos Eisley - Assault Mode I hope there is something similar. I probably spent the most time playing that in Battlefront 2.
While I absolutely dislike the idea off shelling out $50 for 5 sets of map packs like with BF4, I may pony up for this if given the opportunity and the base game is as great as it hopefully will be.
I am surprised there will be a lot of maps, hope it delivers.
It doesn't contain a traditional single player campaign so it better have a lot of content for the multiplayer.
the game launches with 4 planets with at least 2 maps on each. Battle of Jakku free DLC will be released 2 weeks later and will include 1 more planet and at least 2 more maps. Expect the season pass to add at least 1 new planet for every DLC with 2-3 maps included. The game with launch with 8-9 maps with 2-3 more being added 2 weeks later for FREE.
Glad there's confirmation of split screen. Was really worried they'd leave it out.
Lots of guys running around on Hoth with lasers and ice everywhere was and will be so awesome. I hope this game lives up to the hype.
I know they're focusing on the original trilogy at this point, I hope they include stuff from film 7 in the DLC.
They are going to. The Battle of Jakku will be a free piece of DLC for everyone 2 weeks after the game is released.
Right. And I'm hoping at least 2 of the map packs are themed from the 7th film, not just one map.
Its gonna come down to the enviroments, if its all original trilogy then cool, you dont need the prequels except for dlc, imagine the complete look of the original films and having the same feel but your in it, shooting blasters at storm troopers and flying x wings, how f@#!ing awesome is that!
I wonder how many players it will be. 64 u would think on certain modes at least, but who knows.
They have mentioned that it will be 40 player's maximum.
This game has NO single player campaign....
Has Battlefront ever had a simple player campaign?
Battlefront 2 did.
60 fps seems lofty for the amount of detail in the game, but that's so awesome if they can reach it, even a variable 60 fps would be welcome.
60 fps, and looking like that on consoles. Nope. I don't believe that for one second.
I hope it's 32vs32 and not lower, It has to be brought to the lower common dominator witch is the slow ass cpu in the console so probably won't be that :s
