Star Wars: Battlefront Already "Well Into Development"

BTW, the original BF series was an FPS with 3rd person components so I don't know why people be hatin other than "Oh look, EA news! Let's roll out the hate wagons."

It was mainly third person, with the FPS option feeling like an afterthought.

The way they say 'Third person components' makes it feel like it'll be the other way round in Battlefront 3.

Hell, 'components' makes it sound like there's not even an option for full third person. It makes it sound like there'll be a bit now and again where we can go third person, like in vehicles or when using turrets or something.

It's just EA that's stupid right?
I mean, yes, DICE is heavily rooted in Battlefield, but they wouldn't uproot all the qualities that make the game good... would they?

Cautious optimisim over: I do find the idea of destructive environments in the star wars universe appealing. Ohh, how about when playing as a Jedi/Sith, you use the force to destroy a wall that'll allow your troops to enter the enemy outpost and then pick up what's left of the debris and throw it at the enemy team?

-OR-

While piloting an AT-AT, you can stomp on an enemy occupied building and destroy it that way because you just can. I remember in Bad Company 2, I would just drive the tanks into the buildings and then take a couple of shots at the enemy team as well as blowing out the supports on the other side.

It makes me laugh how people are saying "Oh this better not just be Battlefield: Star Wars edition." EA already not only confirmed that it WOULD NOT be Battlefield: Star Wars edition, but they would hate to do that because "it would be boring." Don't believe me? Google it. I was skeptical too, but with that earlier post and the fact that there WILL be third person, I'm super fired up. :D

When I see the title all I can think of is the title translates to "EA is rushing Battlefront 3 out ASAP to steal your $$$ before you realize its crap".

I would love to be proven wrong but I don't believe any AAA developer today could make a battlefront 3 that does the series justice. There is too much homogenous BS in the AAA market these days to think that it wont make it to battlefront 3. Especially at the helm of one of the greatest offenders in the game industry.

Remember when Bioware was on top of the world and said that your decision in the Mass Effect series would have a real implication to the way the story concluded? Yeah companies lie and change direction so please don't be so naive.

Choices having a real implication within a game isn't exactly the same as how all of the techniques and gameplay mechanics come together to make the game what it is and give it a certain feel. You may choose to remain skeptical, and that's fine, but I've chosen to take it for what it's been set up as and I will support it until I play it for myself and determine whether it was worth it or not.

The second I they say it is only origin exclusive, they lose my potential sale forever. It's a shame because Battlefront II is one of my favorites.

Still...

"will have a third person component".

Oh shit don't tell me you fuckwads are turning this into a primarily FPS title, are you? It's not squad based tactics in outer space, where you pick and choose your loadouts. It's a human wave simulator with distinct class based warfare. Get it right or don't do it at all.

This does make me skeptical.

^Aye!^

Forgive me if I don't share the optimism of some members, but seriously, I just don't get why a lot of people have stellar hopes about this. I mean this is EA, these are the guys who will not let a great game stop them from becoming the most hated company on release date. If DICE gets this right, EA will slap anti-consumer business practices up the ass to antagonize its customers to the max. If DICE gets it wrong, layoffs to the max! So many other things can possibly go wrong outside the game. There is Origin and the possibility for, always-online, insane price tags, microtransactions, poor customer support, terminating servers and support too early, rushed, poor and short game content, other DRM issues, etc.

If that doesn't change your mind, think about this, if your boyfriend or girlfriend took your money and cheated on you, how many times would they have to do it before you finally say "It's over"?

Sim City, Dragon Age 2, Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Pt. 1, Pt. 2, Star Wars MMO, Dead Space 3, FIFA, Dark Spore, Command and Conquer 4, etc...

ok, i am not an EA fan. My butt is still hurt from mass effect 3 and dragon age 2. BUT they are still making it, we didn't have that till they got it so please stop complaining, at least until we see the product.

well into developement probably means they took the engine and assets from Battlefield 3 and all thats left to do now is re-skinning to resemble space and maybe slight alterations to maps not to call them copies.

I'm just gonna stop by and say that I'm looking forward to this game. I don't get why this game attracts so much blind hate for EA.

I bet most of you still like to say Jar Jar Binks raped your childhood and Attack of the Clones is the worst movie evar(!) made, so it's not like they can ruin Star Wars for you any further, right?

Um it's EA they get hate for breathing.

on topic this game sounds like it will be fun.

Yep, but they're in charge of Star Wars: Battlefront. If you want a new SW:BF, you'll play this. If not, then don't. Easy.
