YouTube's 'Jake McNeill' has released a video, showing 10 minutes of new gameplay footage from Star Wars: Battlefront's Walker Assault mode.
Cool seeing what this game is like if you are good at it.
right? i cant stand those peeps who have no clue 😒
take out the star wars background and ask yourself, does the game itself look good? to me visually it looks very nice but the gameplay appears very boring and the auto-aim is just too much for me who like to just run around and try and kill people, get killed, respawn, rinse and repeat... totally aimed at casuals.
OMG!!!! i absolutely CAN NOT wait for this game... if final release is anything like the ALPHA, this is gonna be nice..
Great looking game. I don't know what to do man. I can't get everything. It's a time thing. I don't have time for Fallout 4, Halo 5, The Taken King, Star Wars, etc. Unless I quit my job and abandon my wife and kids...lol. Too many great games at once. Every holiday season, I miss out on something. I'd hate to skip this, but I'm not passing on Halo and Fallout.
I was really excited for Battlefront, almost preordered it a few weeks ago but after seeing this video I'm glad I didn't. I think I'll wait for reviews to be sure that: - the servers work properly (BF4 will never be forgotten) - there is enough content in terms of maps and unlockables - the game is not just boring run'n'gun like this video suggests I still hope that it will be a great game but the last few years showed me that you never know whether a game is actually as good as all the hyped up CGI trailers suggest.
hmmm, doesn't look as fun as the first gameplay reveal trailer but maybe I was just excited to finally see a Stars Wars game again.
@moldy - "Casual" doesn't mean "bad game" just like "hardcore" doesn't mean "good game". "Fun" means "good game", and this gameplay looks fun to me. Would I buy it if it didn't have the look and sound of classic Star Wars? Hard to say, but it has those things nailed so there's no point in thinking about it.
Man, DICE messed up ONCE in their whole amazing career and you can't let it go. Out of how many games they've done, how many had a flawed released? 1! DICE is a fantastic studio. BF4 was pushed out early against DICE's wishes by EA. Considering the backlash, I doubt that will happen again.
@moldybread... I agree that this gameplay footage doesn't show much of anything interesting going on... but...there wasn't any 'auto-aim', that was clearly the PC version (mouse pointer in menu, look speed, etc.)... but again, yeah...its definitely a casual focused mp game...just watching him stand on that hill for 3 minutes without getting picked off, and dropping like 30 guys or whatever...only casuals let you get away with that...they're making this as mass appeal as possible obviously, and that leaves zero room for true skill gaps...low'ish ttk, no recoil, 100% full auto accuracy, seemingly unlimited ammo, etc...systems like that make the worst players on earth still able to drop people...and make the best players not seem all that different other than situational awareness... I'm not for or against the game...I do think it looks visually impressive, but DICE/EA haven't really been on my list of game makers i'm in a hurry to buy from again...regardless of who the game is geared towards...
looks like auto aim on? really easy to lock in on people far away and it looks crap hip firing that far away. looks way to much like BF imo.
I'd say he just happens to be really good with mouse and keyboard. And I wonder how well squad combat works. This guy was more of a lone wolf.
" looks like auto aim on? really easy to lock in on people far away and it looks crap hip firing that far away. looks way to much like BF imo. " Perhaps the most contradicting pair of sentences to date
I dont think thats the case.
Sorry, this game looks bad. and I love DICE games but this isn't looking good at all. Halo 5 FTW even the beta smashed this.
The Halo 5 beta was poor.
Your agenda is showing...........
I dont think this game looks bad, I just don't think it differs from Battlefield as much as it should. Of course I think Halo 5 is leaps and bounds better but that's my own personal opinion and is very subjective. I'm not really into these type of shooters anymore but if I had to choose between Battlefront or BO3 I'd get Battlefront twice before I get CoD. @darren_poolies You are sure in the minority then and or never touched the beta.
Don't start unnecessary flame wars.
@Paytaa Guess I'm in the minority then. Played it and didn't enjoy. Just didn't feel like Halo.
@darren, you are in the minority. @PSIN4, i dont get it what agenda? You think im a console fanboy? No thanks ill stick with enjoying any platform i wanna play on. Sorry you can only afford one console.
@Thunder_G0d_Bane OHHHH now I see why there are people hating on StarWars of all things.... its the same story as with Destiny apparently. Sad. Don't worry Halo will sell, you don't have to hate on StarWars.
So you played either, right? I can watch Twitch all day but going hands on is a completely different experience.
Halo 5 beta was poor and boring
Sorry, this game looks good, and I'm not even a huge fan of DICE but this is looking fun.
This actually reminds me of Warhawk on the PS3. This is a good thing...Warhawk was awesome.
This game look meh so far. Can easily get bore real fast
We have people moaning about recoil now? This gameplay vid was Extremely similar to the old battlefronts.
* Looks awesome, but I was bored just watching that. That doesn't look that fun. Will it be a good game ? Yes Does the gameplay look fun from what I've seen = No. * Still keeping an open mind that it will be awesome, but to be honest I'm getting less excited for this game and more excited for Halo 5 as they both approach. I planned on buying both, but I'll wait until I see more gameplay. It's Star Wars, so I want to play it...I want to like it, but that wasn't very fun to watch. Let's be real......no fanboy stuff. Be honest. It was kind of boring. Doesn't mean the full game will be boring though.
Wish they would go in FPS view more, but good to see how 3rd person looks like. Looks fun, can't wait.
They did 3rd person to 1st person view better than Bethesda has ever done
Right lets compare a 2007 game to a 2016 game...
Skyrim came out in 2011 and had an awful first person mode.
My bad completely forgot about skyrim XD. Too hyped for Fallout 4 to remember Elder scrolls. Well one is a shooter focused game and the other is a open-world rpg. Kinda hard to compare the two but will have to see what Fallout 4 brings to the table to do a good comparison.
Or you can also compare it to what we've seen from Fallout 4. This is Bethesda, the same company that has had third to first person perspective on their games for 20 years and they still couldn't do it properly. Rockstar and DICE do it once and outshine them completely.
I lol'd again.
That is not hard,.. since both views are broken in Bethesta's games
He's making fun of Bethesda not being able to get it right after all this time.
Yep, but Bethesda will have more content in their game than any EA game, that's for sure.
wow.. that guy is hitting targets that are miles away... i'm never gonna survive if that guy and i'm in the same room. the back voice that was giving orders sounded like Killzone for a sec. took me straight back to KZ2 mp days. those were great days.
And they say Stormtroopers couldn't hit the broadside of a barn.
I'm gonna wreck shop
does anyone else get a Plants Vs Zombies: Garden Warfare vibe from this? I never noticed that before but its all i can think about now haha. definitely not a bad thing as i love PvZ:GW :)
you're right its there, but PvZ GW is a satire game of call of duty and battlefront, which the battlefront series is based of BF....
PvZ is a lot more fun though to be honest. The Level/map design in PvZ:GW is some of the best I've ever played, where as here its all bland and open and slightly boring. * It does give that vibe, but PvZ:GW had a Nintendo vibe that this doesn't match. There seems to be less action going on here than in a battlefield game.
Both are EA... Probably used their TPS mechanics for both games.
man this game looks so boring.trailers certainly fooled me
I agree. But to be honest, it may look boring because the guy we were watching F*CKING CAMPED FOR 9 MINUTES.
I'm not an mp gamer but I'm not understanding what makes this look any different from any other mp game. Shoot some people, maybe grab a flag, protect some squad members by shooting at people, rinse & repeat. The walkers add a little variety but these visuals & environments make me wish there was some form of story component. Oh well, us sp gamers will have the Visceral title, that thing is sounding amazing so far.
I'm more of an sp guy myself as well but I do get into mp from time to time. Simply put from my perspective it doesn't look fun. There was no edge of your seat crazy action like you get with the likes of halo and destiny or really tense but slow paced and calculated moments in tlou. I spose it can be hard to explain to someone who doesn't usually play mp but basically to me it looked really boring.
@ninsigma That makes sense. I guess it's like any other game genre where if you don't actively play them it's easy to boil them down into something more basic which would forego some of the more important factors. I guess just from watching videos of these mp games it's hard to really get across the difference in play styles for someone like me who doesn't play them, it's most likely all about going hands on with the games themselves. Aside from the recognizable aspects of the SW license, Battlefront does definitely look like it could get pretty old pretty quick going by a lot of the footage they've released so far, if they are going to go all in on mp they should introduce some of the variety present in the games you mentioned with maybe a handful of fully unique modes.
Got a chance to play this at the gamestop expo in Vegas. Had an amazing experience with it.
I had a chance at EA. Definitely one of the must buys for me this year.
Looks nice Has the same amount of features as a ps2 game. No thanks.
From that faraway!?!? With no recoil!! Ooo this game is going to make me so ticked when I play it XD I am going to be like WTF!! From that faraway!? that's bull crap!! Lol
Don't know of I'm going to bother with it after that video. Didn't look great tbh, nothing special there at all. And with all the other games I want to play I may just give this one a miss. I'll be spending a lot of time in online side of things with Destiny and when halo 5 drops I'll definitely be getting a good load of swat games in on the mp for that. Then there's all the sp games. Which is a shame because I was starting to look forward to this one but that video made it look quite boring for me :/
Really debating on getting this on PC too. I wish Origin would let you buy it once and play wherever.
no single player no Buy
http://gamerant.com/star-wa... Has a single player
Your Words Really Touch My Heart
Playing it and watching it are completely different. Yes the video is boring but when you pit two teams against each other that work together it turns into something special. Yes I have played it.
It's a fun game simple as that.
After seeing that video, it's put me off a little. Distance was stupid, too easy to hit ppl. Was no skill involved, I know it's an open map. But just looks lifeless. Don't see the point of a 3rd person view either. Looks as if it needs alot of adjustments before release and quite honestly if that isn't 60fps on consoles, Dice should overhaul that engine and rehire.
Third person view is for those of us who played and are fans of the previous two battlefront titles. Too bad those of us who are actually fans have no interest in this trash "re-imagining" of a series we love.
"Too bad those of us who are actually fans have no interest in this trash "re-imagining" of a series we love." Too bad sweeping statements are rarely true. Actual fan of the old games here, and I have great interest in this game.
@MysticStrummer So you're telling me you'd rather have this abomination of a game made by Dice rather than the master piece that would have been Battlefront 3 made by Pandemic games? Yeah, I'm going to stick with my sweeping statement, you're no fan. I'm offended you would even claim to be.
@garrettbobbyferguson Ah the ole "no true scotsman" fallacy. Just because he has a different opinion, of course he must not be a fan (Sarcasm). Seems like you already have your mind made up on a game that hasn't been released yet
So there is no penalty for spawn point camping. Also there is no recoil allowing you to hit opponents from a great distance with out event having to use a scope. Anyone else catch that you can apparently instant throw 3 grenades/detonators (not sure how that is possible). I would agree this looks pretty bad. One player is in essence griefing the entire other team with little to no penalty. It only takes one hole to take away from everyones enjoyment, and as this is a multiplayer only game this does not bode well. Edit: looks like the 3 grenades was the special for the class called barrage. Looks like it needs to be tweaked as well. Between that and the never run out of ammo no recoil shoot across the map rifle it appears tweaking is needed for sure. How is this balanced?
No single player campaign is lame. They should be more true to the movies. Slow tie fighters flying around and Y wings? WTF?? BF painted Star Wars...
That gameplay looks nothing like BF, but I agree about the slow space fighters in the sky.
It looks exactly like Battlefield 4 with an extra third person mode. Take off those Star Wars goggles and see the forest through the trees.
