Star Wars Battlefront Is A Passionate Love Letter From DICE

Tanner says, "Immediately following Star Wars Battlefront’s release there was a staggering amount of polarization surrounding the game; and to some extent it’s an ongoing discussion. Some believe that the game, as a product, doesn’t have enough content to justify a $60 price tag and that it’s wrong for EA and DICE to announce a $50 season pass before the base game’s launch. Others meanwhile are heartily enjoying the game, as is."

Whereas 50$ season pass is a passionate love letter from EA ;)

JEECE2911d ago

Do people really buy those? I mean obviously some do, but is it prevalent? Everyone is flipping out about the season pass in BF, but I always thought most people who bought shooters only ever played the original maps. But I haven't played a lot of online console shooters (more of a CS person when I feel the shooter urge).

"EA Makes More Than 2X More Money From Extra Content Than From Full Digital Games"
-Title from gaming articles back in November.

That does that answer your question?

It actually has a steady 5/5 from buyers off a site I usually check out, after a full month from the release.

The site feels reliable. So some fun factor has to be accounted to apply among the gamers playing it.

Feel disgusted, like I do, but don't hate the game.
Like Ozzy sung/sings: "I don't want to change the world, because the world will change me".
That is, in extent a cause to say "Resistance is futile"

Is it just me or does anyone else hate the saying "love letter to fans." Lol I feel like 343 ran that saying into the ground when they were marketing the mcc. And now it just feels like developers want to make passionate love to us :(

Jalva2911d ago

I would let them all make passionate love to as long as Jade Raymond is among them.

NexusFX2911d ago

Generally speaking I never liked the idea of Paid DLC and Season Passes. Having said that I did buy this season pass simply because of what dice did with Battlefield 3 & 4 which is give us more content than originally came with the game...so i figured what the hell.

My top thing I want to see,
#1. Have anybody but EA dev/publish

Rebel_Scum397d ago

All I want is a great SP mode. Battlefront 2 had a pretty good one, but something a bit longer and encompass different mechanics and light RPG elements would be cool.

CorndogBurglar397d ago (Edited 397d ago )

Just don't mess up the progression system like last time. Release a game that was more in line with what BF2 eventually evolved into and it will make everyone happy.

All 3 trilogy eras of Star Wars

All the main playable armies (maybe this time even make it so different armies from different eras can fight each other. Like the Empire or First Order vs The Trade Federation, for example)

No loot boxes

Reasonable, experience based progression

Then, remove the damn combat cards no one has liked in either game. Just give us guns and equipment to choose from.

And a better air combat mode. The flight parts were almost great in BF2. A little tweaking could really make it something awesome.
