Who do I need to threaten and who do I need to kill to see this video?

Wenis2758d ago

I dont think we'll have to wait til E3. I think they'll show it before then

guitarded772757d ago

All I need to know is if it's gonna be 3rd person. If they screw it up and make it first person only, I will be pissed.

jmd7492757d ago

With Amy Hennig on board I have very high expectations. :)

CARROT1809942757d ago

@jmd749 Amy Henning is working on the Visceral star wars game, not battlefront

Gazondaily2757d ago

Damn, a standing ovation. That sounds pretty damn promising. Unless EA charged a subscription fee for sitting on the chairs.

I cant wait till E3!

hay2757d ago (Edited 2757d ago )

No amount of standing ovation will make me trust EA. Show it or shut up. Let the product speak.

VforVideogames2757d ago

it had a standing ovation because it was on ps4.

I agree, show or it didn't happen. If you have nothing important to provide us don't waste our time. Here's a nice downvote and dislike for trying to garner hits by using SW. Post the supposed video to redeem yourself!


Wenis2758d ago

Well actually it did happen... but its up to EA to show the rest of the world

Ark_2757d ago

It's called marketing. They are building hype ... slowly. Just look at the posts. The attention got stirred up allready. You can bet that whatever they showed will "leak" soon. They will then feed some twitter post from a developer, some sreenshots here and there, another video, e3 reveal and so on. Same old, same old.

Let's just wait till it's done.

Sevir2757d ago

This was the first look for the journos, but industry platform holders saw the game for the first time in January. And IGN said that EA and Dice will be showing it to the media at GDC. Battlefield 4 was shown for the first time at GDC 2013... So even if you don't believe it doesn't change the fact that it happened.

starchild2758d ago

If it looks as good as the trailer below and showed some good gameplay, I can see why it would get a standing ovation.

XanderZane2757d ago

It will most likely get leaked before the E3 gets here, I'm sure. Just about everyone is looking forward to this game.

I can't wait to play this game early with my EA Access membership.

MasterCornholio2757d ago

Does that mean that he has a tattoo of the game on his chest?

bleedsoe9mm2758d ago (Edited 2758d ago )

me too , not sure why people would disagree with your excitement to get your hands on it a bit early

Antifan2758d ago

*3 days early. Lol. EA ripping u off dawg

Kribwalker2757d ago

5 days early access, but that's just an added benefit to EA Access as the vault alone is worth more then $200 and the 10%discount on other games on top of it it screams bargin

LexHazard792757d ago

Thats 3 days you still have to wait....while theyre enjoying the game. You'll be here hating, like the good antifan that you are.

Sevir2757d ago

3 to 5 days more isn't killing anyone who've waited the 2 years of development to play it. He's not hating, he's just saying the wait isn't a big deal.

DLConspiracy2757d ago (Edited 2757d ago )

Hey Star Wars fans are pretty rabid. So are Battlefront fans. This is a pretty anticipated game and I would be happy to sign up just to play it early. Its at least an option for those who want to. That's not a horrible thing. Better than those jerks who are charging 60 bucks for early access beta codes online.

I'll play your game.

Cant wait to play this with my controller and use its touchpad for melee moves and the speaker for authenic movie communication coming out of the speaker on the controller.

I will also let my friends shareplay this game, thus they can try it before they buy it.

I also will buy the ps4 version since bf4 used the dice engine and the ps4 version was superior.

(If you are going to troll...always have a strong first statement)

MasterCornholio2757d ago

"I will also let my friends shareplay this game, thus they can try it before they buy it."

About shareplay.

Wouldn't it be cool if coop was available through shareplay?

That would be an awesome way to demo the game.

Omegasyde2757d ago

for certain games co-op is available for shareplay diablo 3 for instance

Bigpappy2757d ago

They got a standing ovation for showing DX12 footage. Not sure PS4 will be getting a "superior" version, but one can still dream.

Revengeance2757d ago

Wow. A whole week early! Sony fanboys must be sooooo jealous right now


slappy5082757d ago

Good we need to have beta testers, especially on EA games.

bondsmx2758d ago

Really wanna see this footage. Hoping we don't have to wait all the way until E3 to see it!

Iluvtrim2758d ago

This will be awesome on XBO. Stay tuned,

Xavior_Reigns2758d ago

It'll be wonderful regardless of where it plays, if it lives up to the older titles, remember its EA. Always exercise caution to avoid disappointment.

traumadisaster2758d ago

Did u mean to say 4kPC...

My brutha I will buy a second titan if need be for this!

Antifan2758d ago

Yes, on PC it will be awesome.
