DICE seems set to focus on making their Battlefront a Star Wars themed Battlefield game, rather than reexplore all the ideas and tropes from the first games.
This game looks more and more like a disappointment.
Why don't you wait until it comes out, they obviously have a direction that they are taking this, and just cause it is the EXACT same as the previous games, does not mean it's going to be a disappointment!
I wouldn't call it a disappointment, it still looks very good and I bet it will be fun. But it's not the Battlefront that a lot of us wanted. Without Space combat, AT-ATs you can actually use on Hoth or Galactic Conquest, I am not as hyped for it as I was.
* There is no disappointment, only a failure to assess reality by a lot of arrogant people. * How arrogant to think you can judjge ANY GAME for ANY CONSOLE that we only know about 50-10% of the details about ? * Why aren't you all playing the lottery, because you all seem to think you know everything about every game before it's released. * The ignorance and arrogance on this site is astounding. Seriously. * Bloodborne doesn't appeal to me at all.....I wasn't trying to tell everyone WHAT it was going to be. I couldn't have possibly known, so I JUST WAITING. * Truly Smart people will wait and see, ONCE they have gathered more facts. * The rest will act like they know everything. Have some patience with games people. * Dev's....media....they are only ruining so much. YOU the gamers are going the rest...
When a continuation of a well known game series is announced and the latest version lacks many common features held in high regard by long time fans of previous games then there is warranted disappointment. The idea that there will be no space battles isn't fan supposition or rumor...it was announced by Dice. Disappointment is warranted when the now missing features were enjoyed by most gamers and functioned well on far less powerful platforms and were built by smaller dev teams. When the current developer/publisher has a recent history of bad launches as well as withholding common features to be released later as paid DLC then skepticism combined with the aforementioned disappointment is warranted. No arrogance is required to judge a game when the developer has clearly stated that prominent features from previous games will be omitted. When half of the known details are about features from previous titles that will now be left out, no arrogance is required to call a duck, a duck. Quack quack quack. The truly astounding ignorance is that which exists when one witnesses the removal of time tested fan favorite features and believes one should do nothing but sit on their fist and rear back on their thumb. A poorly made Star Wars game slammed by gamers and ridiculed by the press does not persuade the IP owner to make more Star Wars games. If you care, then act. The ignorance on this site that says you should sit back, do nothing, and wait until late beta is astounding. Playing the lottery is what people are doing that squat and wait on something to come to them. Proactive gamers make their wants and needs heard ahead of time in order to possibly impact the game while there is still time. Playing the lottery is what losers do instead of working forcefully and preparedly to make your own luck by influencing the direction of development. Failing to speak up resembles failing to place an order with the waiter and simply waiting on an undercooked meal to be served up. It is a little late to complain to the cook at that point. When enough facts have been provided directly from the source, truly smart and proactive people interdict matters immediately in order to correct the course of the ship heading for the rocks. Otherwise you get what you get and that never works. Those “rest of the people” can just be satisfied with whatever it is they receive but fans of BF want the game to be made correctly and with time tested features for which the series is known.
Where do I sign the petition. We want space battles.
OMFG when will yee morons get it into your simple minded skulls STOP CALLING THIS STAR WARS GAME BATTLEFRONT 3 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This game is not a follow up to Battlefront 1 and 2 but a brand new game using an existing IP going in a different direction!!! Stop putting people off by highlighting this is a follow up to the previous two games !!!! IT NOT !!!!
Lots of exclamation marks but I agree, it's a point worth making. This is a reboot. Expecting a sequel will set you up for disappointment.
They shouldn't have named it Battlefront, but they're trying to cash in on the popularity of the previous 2 games. Uninformed buyers are in for an unfortunate surprise.
No galactic conquest really? No longer a day one purchase for me. This is very disappointing. This is not a Battlefront game. I don't know what it is, but it's not Battlefront.
For people who don't get off being negative about everything, here's a gameplay screenshot showing First and Third person. http://i.imgur.com/paUj1F5.... The game looks fantastic. Although no galactic conquest is disappointing.
Holy shitt where the hell did you get that!
It's from the dev diary
That is not even close to how the graphics for the final game will look. If the game looked that good when playing, they'd have tripped over themselves to show it off rather than only showing a pre-rendered movie.
Hmmm, that is a little disappointing to hear.
AT-AT's not controllable? They were controller in the first one. Are the Y-Wings not controllable either?
Nope...they're not...you call them in...it makes sense but you should be able to fly the dang things
I feel some butt hurt up in here LOL. I played the first Battlefront, and it's been so long since that concept, you'd think people would be ok with something new coming out of the Star Wars franchise. I'm extremely excited to see how this new installment turns out. It looks impressive so far. If they implement a leveling system and have a strong co-op/multiplayer style, it should be a win in my book.
When are people gonna realize this isn't Battlefront 3, it's a complete reboot.
they won't because they are completely brain dead.
They shouldn't have named it Battlefront.
That's no excuse for the game having fewer features than a game from over 10 years and 2 console generations ago.
Every day more and more is reported cut from this game. Shouldn't be astounding
It's pretty bad when a game doesn't have features that its predecessor had a decade ago.
Still really excited to play it.
more like playable levelution , i wonder if the will be other examples on different planets
So far the only thing this game has going for it is that it looks good visually, and a lot of the assets are authentic to the actual movies. But gameplay wise it looks like it's gonna suck. 40 players max, no space battles, you can only control the smaller vehicles, no galactic conquest, no campaign, no classes in favor of a COD type choose-your-loadout...Not to mention they're already slicing the game up into chunks to be offered as pre-order incentive or screwing over big groups of fans in favor of one platform over another. Also it's being sold by EA so you know the ultra deluxe edition with everything included is going to be like an insane amount of 120 dollars or something. Maybe battlefront should have stayed dead.
I love how everyone is complaining about things being cut from this game when they never said any of these features would be in the game to begin with. Go play BF 1&2 if those are the games you want to play.
Unacceptable. This game is nothing but "Oh, that thing you could do in the first 2 games that came out more than a decade and 2 console generations ago? Yeah...you can't do that in our game." What CAN you do in this game? It's disgusting. And people defend it because "Muh EA, Muh DICE. Is reeeeeeboot, not sequel" Stop tolerating laziness. There's no defending this.
Nothing was better than hooking and toppling a AT-AT knowing some people were in it wreaking havoc. CPU players were a part of why Titanfall didn't grab me. I like for everything I kill to be somebody. Everything else is just in the way. I'm still fully onboard though. Can't expect a new, built from the ground up game to have everything. Battlefront 4 should be insane though cause they will be building on wherever they leave off on this one. In game screenshots show that they are on the right track. Can't stop my hype that easily.
