What is it.

Remember those sweet Star Wars Battlefront games? Ever heard of Battlefield? Imagine those two had a baby. Yep.

“The scale of our maps and modes offer a great variety” depending on the location, Fegraeus explained. Hoth, where the Rebel Alliance fought off invading AT-ATs in snowy plains, will differ in size than the dense woodland of Endor.

“We have actually made the decision to specifically tailor certain maps to certain game modes,” Fegraeus continued, “and what we get from that is not only incredibly varied scales, but also gameplay that will allow players to live out some of their most memorable Star Wars battle fantasies.”

DICE’s Frostbite Engine brings that to life by way of the studio’s “internally developed photogrammetry systems.” With photogrammetry, developers can use photographed images to achieve an incredible level of detail – we saw this in The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, which IGN nominated for Best Graphics in the 2014 Best of Technology category.

Is it bad that I'm more excited for this than Halo 5?

 

A quote towards the end interested me:

 

"We’ve been showing the game to some close partners and one of the things we hear is that it doesn’t feel like other shooters and that it’s fully born from Star Wars" 

 

Now that could easily just be some marketing bs to lead people to believe that's not just a cod/battlefield clone with a Star Wars skin like some people are afraid of happening. But, hopefully its true and it doesn't just take things from other games and tries to stay away from the cliche military shooter by attempting to create something unique that sets it apart. Really hyped to see what this game will end up being like.

Is it bad that I came here for Halo but I'm writing my first post about Battlefront?

 

I just hope Dice won't let us wait until e3...hopefully they give us something after they released Hardline!

A Star Wars skin Battlefield is still incredible. Either way it's awesome

So I've never seen a single gameplay/trailer/article of battle front. 

 

If someone wants to explain why this game is so awesome? What type of game is this? what's with all the hype?

If Battlefield was good, it would be Battlefront.

Hopefully when we get more info and the hype builds up Battlefront will get its own sub forum. If it at least lives up to Pandemic's Battlefront there shouldn't be a problem with keeping that active.

Go watch some gameplays of SWBF I and II. Battlefront is it's own type of FPS game and is one of a kind. Probably one of the better online games to play due to its diversity and style. Between conquest (think modern day domination, but with a twist), and space battles in fighters with every faction of ship. At certain times you can spawn in as a Jedi or Sith based on the map type.

 

I could go on and on into detail but I'd be here for hours. Check out some gameplay of the older games and imagine what it will be like on current consoles/PC.

Is there any skill involved in 1v1s tho? i think it's random. I remember outslaying my buddies team hard and continuously lose. Didn't matter how good i was doing my team would just suck.

It feels random to me. At least BF2.

Depends on the class you choose. Each had their pros and cons due to their starting weapons.

This should be really fun on the PC, 64 man servers, blasters every where. EA better not fuck it up, but I'll give them credit for at least recognizing they fucked up. All the bad press really made them want to change.

My main hope is that they include bot battles like the previous games, if you're just learning the game or have had enough of random people talking on their mics then you at least have something to fall back on.

 

But apart from I'm so hyped for this it's unreal.

Back then the A.I. was somewhat decent, at least for 2006. You either started with blasters (think stormtrooper type of weapons), sniper, rockets, or shotgun. All depended on the planet and type of factions facing each other. Although the A.I. shot you, they weren't very accurate or intelligent to say the least. But they did spawn as random classes.

I just hope DICE doesn't screw up, having a hard time trusting them after BF3/4.

Hey @, is it possible in the future when there's more news and hype around Battlefront to have it's own forum section? I've noticed a lot of people on the site were big fans of the original so there's potential for it to be active.
