It's Finally Here: Star Wars Battlefront

So, neat teaser trailer, huh? I'll add it to the post when it appears on YouTube but as of EA's E3 conference, Star Wars: Battlefront has been officially announced, as what I guess is a reboot of the series.
EDIT:

I threw my money at the screen, and something wonderful happened. I now offer them all my dollars for this product.

Any word on platforms it'll be released on? I don't tend to keep up with conferences and whatnot.

Xbox One and PlayStation 4 are a given. Knowing DICE, it will probably be on PC. A smart move would be to include it on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, just in case. Wii U, I have no idea. I doubt it, considering EA is pissed at Nintendo for some dumb reason.

Don't quote me on this, but I read somewhere that EA plan on supporting current gen also for the next few years. So I think BF will be on current gen consoles also.

I wasn't too sure about that as I was typing it up. They're making so much hype about the next gen that it feels like they're abandoning the current gen right now.

They're only screaming about the next gen because they wanna encourage people buying it but they don't want to alienate their current gen fan base. Pretty much if not all of the games EA have shown/announced will be available on current gen.

I know that's why. Just saying what it feels like to me, regardless of how true it isn't.

Anyways, despite how badly I want to preorder it as soon as preorders go up, I think I'll wait and see what it does best on.

We all knew it was going to happen. It's nothing exciting. It's just yet another stupid CG trailer... which I'm getting sick of. When they actually show me something REAL from the game, then I'll get excited.

Hmm. I hope EA won't be imposing a restrictive development schedule on the developers in order to get a quick cash-in..

But Dice is a prestigious developer that's made them a lot of money in the past, so perhaps the studio will get sufficient respect from the publisher in this regard.

Still, it *is* EA..



mfw I read the Revan novel

it is not a cry of joy.

How do you reboot a series with no actual storyline?

Well i hope this won't be just Battlefield 3/4 with Star Wars skins,locations >.> still excited about it though and quite happy that it won't utilize the crappy Frostbite 2 engine that Battlefield 3 has.

It's okay, easily misread. I know I thought what you thought the first time I read it

Interesting little snippet of news: It is being developed by not only DICE, but the core DICE team in Stockholm.

EDIT: Slightly skeptical about it suddenly, and fear that they will make it an FPS, hence the reboot, rather than 3rd Person like the older games.

EDIT2: DICE: Star Wars: Battlefront is not Battlefront 3

It'll be interesting to see what "DICE's interpretation of what Battlefront should be" is.

Got quite a lot of documentary style videos this year, this being one of them. Just a lot of "Here at (company), we are very passionate about games" fluff and not much else.

Not impressed.

EDIT: In fact, it has REALLY bugged me. We got one from Criterion that was literally just them saying "we, a game developer, are in fact, making games!" showing pre-alpha footage for a racing game they don't even know the name of yet. Seriously, E3 just gets worse and worse every year. Full of CGI and documentary. The only gameplay we ever see is from games announced months to well over a year ago.

Technically you had the option to play in first or third person. Except for vehicles and Jedi in Battlefront II.
