In the latest issue of PlayStation Magazine, DICE revealed that they're currently working on Cockpit and external views for every vehicle featured throughout Star Wars Battlefront.
Okay, so where were those jetpacks in Episode V then?
They were in the universe, don't see why you have to nitpick...oh wait because its cool to hate on this game for no reason.
He wants the battles to be consistent with the movies, so that means Darth Vader won't show up until the end of a big battle and then he'll just walk around. It would be so cool that way, after all.
I was gonna ask how much the jetpack and cockpit view DLCs will cost, or will they be sold as a bundle?
Well, Boba had a jetpack, so..........
Well Boba Fett had one strapped to his back, so I think it is already a pre existing technology, within the star wars universe. Especially since episode II predates episode V and jango also had a jetpack. What is the point of forcing the game to play out, exactly like the movie everyone know the rebels lose hoth. Hopefully they add space battles later on, even if it is in the form of dlc.
Mandalorians had them stockpiled.
Jetpacks and no iron sights. Yep its one of those bunny hopping shooter games for casual gamers who cant aim and just blast everywhere...
Just keeps on getting better and i dont even know whether i'm being sarcastic or not !!!! Stay focused,stay real,stay calm,stay happy "Games gonna be awesome" *twiddles thumbs*
This game is gonna be a hell of a lot of fun , even if you ain't a star wars fan.
Im Battlefield fan.. looking forward to this! :) could be amazing fun knowing what Frostbite engine can do!
Exactly, I love the visuals in both Hardline and BF4, I know this is gonna look good. And I love me some pew pew!
I think you cant be a purist to enjoy this game... if you get into the nitty gritty of the story the game will fail (for you).
Game looks fun. Thats what matters. I want a well polished game. Thats all i demand. If they fail at that, well, life goes on. Many more games to buy this year.
I am actually looking forward to this game i don't see why people are hating.
I want to get excited, I really do but the letters DLC keeps skewering any type of enjoyment in their words and pictures. However, this is not only for DICE but for almost every upcoming triple AAA game release other than The Witcher series honestly.
I know right, because post launch content has never existed before and this is the first..... Welcome to gaming. " tends to be the bigger focus than the main game " No evidence to support such a thing. "give me any reason to accept it" You don't need to....merely don't buy DLC. I didn't 20 years ago with some IPs, I still don't now, I rarely buy expansions to many games. Not due to it not being "right" merely due to its a choice. Do you want extra content or not? Thats what it comes down to. Some games like Fallout 3, I got the extras for, its a great game and I wanted to keep playing. Its honestly up to you. Why do you care that extra's exist? You don't need to buy them and you don't own the IP nor company thus have no rights to that content. You pay for what is being offered, not for every last thing being created. Like I've said to many....are you buying the game for what they are offering, or buying the teams soul? Cause it seems that many feel they own the rights to the whole damn company because they bought a game. You choose to buy that game, just like you choose to buy DLC... You don't need to do either you know?
I never said they didn't exist before but it tends to be the bigger focus than the main game itself which was what I am getting at. Because "Everyone is doing it" doesn't make it right or give me any reason to accept it wholeheartedly.... The problem is that "extras" nowadays are usually options that were previously available at initial release of their predecessors and the main games are usually rushed jobs with paltry offerings. You maybe asking " if you hate the game so much already then why do you care?" The thing is I don't, I want to buy Battlefront, I want it be released stable and with enough content that makes me feel more bang for the buck day one. However, chances are Ill wait for the complete edition when most of of the inevitable issues will be ironed out unless Dice proves me wrong earlier than expected. You would think someone who is paying for your livelihood would have some say in what they want right?
@Kyosuke-"usually options that were previously available at initial release of their predecessors" ...in case of this game, that was 10 years ago and I know of no option that they are selling as DLC that was a function in the first 2 games. Give examples.... ie BF4...no BF game has ever just launched with 40 maps. Example of Smash, Mario Kart ....neither had that much content EVER yet have DLC, Witcher 3, larger and MORE content then both Witcher's....has DLC. Skyrim, larger, more content, has DLC. I"m sorry but give some examples in depth of what your talking about, it doesn't help that SW BF2 is 10 years old either as those exact same features won't be as easy as they where 10 years ago as games are more complex today then back then. But even those features have not been confirmed for DLC... I'm sorry but you can't just be vague and state "are usually" or "usually are" LOL! What are they? Give real before and after examples to actually prove your point. "You would think someone who is paying for your livelihood would have some say in what they want right?" NO, no and no. They have no ode to you other then to provide a game, you have the right to not buy it, you don't own them and they owe you nothing more then a working product. I don't get why gamers feel developers must be in debt to them. Its a easy clear cut business deal, you want a game, they want money. You do no contract them out. You agree to buy what they produce and thats it and nothing more. Value is not the same as price. Value the belief of worth, price is the exact cost, the amount required to produce etc. ....I can "value" a big mac to DEATH ALL DAY LONG...doesn't mean I'm somehow owed something MORE from a company. The developer still needs to get paid for their work, it cost them money to actually produce that content. They again owe you nothing more then a product, in the same respect you owe them money if you wish to buy it from them. Its as simple as that. This is a two way street.
The thing is Battlfield IV and Skyrim were both almost unplayable at launch and needed some heavy patching before I even started to enjoy them. The Witcher III has DLC but it's for free. Don't let me get started on WB Games... What I am trying to say is I'd rather DICE delay the game to include more of the DLC for initial release and to give it more quality testing so we wouldn't need a giant patch day one just to play it. Yeah I haven't played the new Battlefront yet but their track record always tend to scream foul for Dice lately. The problem is everyone already accepts these practices as the normal instead of actually uniting as a voice against it. Seeing how the Steam Mod debacle played out shows that gamers still have the final say, imagine if the same was done to horse armour a while back we probably wouldn't have this argument right now. But that's in a perfect world I guess....
@Kyosuke Okay, I get your point about taking more time to get the bugs out, but you want them to delay the release so they can add in more content that they wanted to sell as DLC for the price of the base game? That's never gonna happen. No matter if you believe developers are greedy or believe that development costs have risen massively (while game prices have more or less stayed the same) they are not going to think "gee, let's make less profit and pay our people less salary and not sell DLC!" Honestly, I believe in the latter. Games have become more complicated, bigger, better graphics and animations, better and more AI, etc., etc. Games take way more time to develop than 20, 15 or 10 years ago. Game prices haven't gone up all that much but we've had quite a bit of inflation over those years as well. In order to make a profit I believe they have to sell DLC. Some people believe they are greedy, well, it's a for profit company, if they find a way to make more money, they will, but really, with all the hate against DLC and season passes I really do not believe they do this out of greed.
Nothing as dramatic as that "buying souls" lol that made me laugh.....just fed up with games getting chopped to bits is all. Your cash used to get you a whole game,now its about two thirds and the rest is extra.
The potential of this and mad max has me pretty stoked... Bring it through dice...
"DICE revealed that they’re currently working on Cockpit and external views for every vehicle featured throughout Star Wars Battlefront." LIES!!!!!!!! X-Wing, Y-Wing, TIE fighter/bomber and any space vehicle won't be included.....unless you'll limit us with the same type of jets like in BF4 then that's no fun.
It's funny that you didn't even bother to read and understand the quote you called a lie.
They're in the freaking trailer
Jetpacks? Battlefield clone.
Battlefield clone? So I guess star wars battlefront 2 having jet troopers all the way back in 2005 doesn't count now.
I was being sarcastic. People find every reason under the sun to say thos is a Battlefield clone, yet they disregard all the differences that are slowly getting announced.
Those jet pack troopers with the electricity gun were awesome. So overpowered, but awesome
Ah k, but it kinda only makes sense to add in the vehicles from he star wars universe. After all that is something dice games are known for, it's vehicle combat. I still hope we get the chance to take down a super star destroyer and other space combat in some future dlc. Is it greedy of me to want some clone wars battles as well or skins/environments.
If they'd just add galactic conquest Id jump for joy. Does make me worry if they wont even add what is essentially just a new menu system that's not in battlefied already, how far they've really gone from their tried and tested formula. However once its released lets be honest, i'll be so dazzled by the pretty colours I'll forget I'm playing the star wars battlefield expansion pack, and even if I do cotton on, I'll be having too much fun shooting the rebel scum :p
Tmobile, and Verizon can take down AT&Ts too ;)
Really looking forward to seeing what DICE do with the Star Wars license. 2015 is an amazing year to be a Star Wars fan :)
