Why Star Wars Battlefront Won't be Battlefield in Space

Battlefield Hardline may have cruelly been criticised as a title that felt like cops and robbers-themed DLC for Battlefield 4 by certain segments of the fan base, but no-one should expect Star Wars Battlefront to play like Battlefield in space. Despite the shared developer (DICE), team-based multiplayer classification, as well as the combination of infantry and all manner of militarised vehicles, the two IPs are light-years apart in terms of all of the little nuances that define their respective gameplay loops.

So....you actually want Battlefront to be a Battlefield clone?

venom063048d ago

if the launch game is ANYTHING like the Alpha, it's going to be an immersive, super fun experience.. Considering we've only see a small portion of the maps and modes, can't wait to live out my Star Wars fantasies on this one... Anyone that has actually played this (and not just watched someone aimlessly wonder around not knowing what they're doing) can easily see this is DEFINITELY not Battlefield Star Wars, but a more immersive Star Wars than anything.

I agree. Just watching the gameplay shown at E3 was enough to convince me it wasn't a BF clone. Which is great news. I can't wait.

I also thought it was cool how the rebel soldiers are made up of humans and a bunch of other alien races. Just something i noticed that was cool.

Just replying to your above comment to me.

They have said there won't be any space battles. So aside from flying an X-Wing, Tie Fighter, or any other air vehicle during a ground mission, please help me understand how this is not all ground combat? (If there is a stage that takes place on a Star Destroyer in orbit, or on the Death Star, I would still consider that ground combat.)

Also, I'm not an EA hater. I was simply making a sarcastic remark about the title of this article. I'm very excited for this game and can't wait to play it, as you can tell by my other comment to you.

lols...sort of need space combat first.

But you know, this is Ground Wars and all that jazz.

Just a thought but I would not be surprised if air superiority is copied and just becomes a space battle dlc
