Has any one heard anything on this? Its supposed to have come out today (September 14), but I haven't heard any official reports. Here are some links to tell you what I'm talking about.

Mine shipped from EB games today so it's out there. I don't know if it's in stores yet though.

Guides do usually come out before game do. I remember one time the CS:condition zero guide was out about a month before the actual game was.

No in my local game store there is no advertisement on Battlefront but the last time I walked past a swear I saw it. The battlefront cover on a big magazine.

Why ? For a SP game with lots of surprises etc it could ruin it, like spoilers for a movie; but i dont think it mlatters much in this case does it? Its full with map plans and some basic strategies
"There is a hole in this wall, go in it and camp". (from some other prima guide)
Its not really a necessity at all. the maps may come in handy for clans for drawing tacs.
If someone has this guide and a scanner let me know :p

When I go there again ill see if I can find it again. The next time I go there will either be the 21st or 18th. So if its there I will beg that my dad buy it j/k. I will actually ask him and if he says no I will save up my money to get it though my dad doesnt like it when I get those guides cause he says its cheating in the game its for.

the only use for a strategic guide for a shooter would have to be on different ways how to win sertain maps, the advantages and disadvantages, so yes, it would be handy for those who have one. ;)

Don't spoil the fun! Finding the best strategy is just as enjoyable as fragging a n00b!

I took a look at the strategy guide at my local EB Games.

Vehicle Confirmations: We already know about all the vehicles that will be in the game, either from the official site or from the x-box vehicle preview. Sorry, no surprises gusy.

Planet Confirmations: Bobby's Helmet has previously posted the complete 16 levels included in the game. Thats all of 'em. The big surprise to me is that Kyshyyyk (I know i am spelling this wrong) is mostly a tropical planet map. Lots of water & huts, quite contrary to the books.

Besides that, I didn't see anything all that important... just thought I'd confirm what we already knew.

how would it be spoiled if you collaberate those strategy's with your own?;)

I thought many Prima guides tend to suck. Also, if there ends up being patches to alter gameplay, then they can become immediately obsolete...

I just want good maps, that's all. I wouldn't even think a second they would come up with better strats than i could :p

I will find out good strategys when I have the game, but I won't play with bastard strategys

do what you wish, but those who tend to be 'battlefront masters' will most likely have the strategy guide.

I bought the Prima guide for Jedi Academy, and it had all the bonus maps and everything included...
