DICE: Star Wars Battlefront won't be just another Battlefiel

I'd buy it even if it was a battlefield clone, I love Star Wars battlefront. I would probably buy a new console for this game alone, as long as they don't mess it up.

I just love the whole double bluff thing they had going on. They said "yeah we cancelled Battlefront 3" to make us ALL want it more, the kind of "we want what we can't have" kinda thing. Very smart way of promoting a game, cannot wait!

I think LucasArts did genuinely cancel it. That's because they are and have always been idiots. Meanwhile EA aren't which is why they've now got Dice making a new one.

We don't want Star Wars plus Battlefield, because that would be boring, right?


I have a very long memory. I will be watching you DICE.

'That's because they are and have always been idiots.'

I would contend that their early point-and-click stuff was pretty good, Grim Fandango and all that. But they have recently been bad - I just wanted to say that they're not all bad people.

I don't think they are all bad, and agree that a lot of their early point and click stuff was very good, but for the last 15 odd years the heads of LucasArts have made one baffling decision after another, particularly with the Star Wars franchise and it's resulted in a long sucession of very mediocre games

Since I've never had the pleasure of Battlefront I am really looking forward to this.

I wouldn't mind seeing some of Battlefield's elements creeping in, like destruction, I like the sound of escaping from Echo Base with it crumbling around me.

YOU HAVEN'T LIVED MAN!

but totally agree that destruction would be great, the (vehicle) damage models and explosions were great for their time so Frostbite could do some great things

I hope they bring back a new and improved version of my favourite mode: Galactic Conquest. Awesome stuff.

Biggest fear about the game was it becoming Star Wars battlefield, don't get me wrong, Battlefield is great, but Battlefront is a different ball park, or pimps territory delete as applicable.

I want the third and first person coming back, with vehicles utilising fp better. Space battles that go into planets like what BF3 was going to be.

I'd sell my soul for this if it's done right, I have it on steam if there's any takers for Battlefront 2?

"A simple BF3 Star Wars re-skin, a Battlefront 3 would not make" *poorly impersonated Yoda*

Pretty much what I'm hoping aswell, not that Battlefront wouldn't benefit from some BF3 elements - destructible environments, greater emphasis on team-work, more vehicles, more game modes etc... but a simple SW paint job won't do it. Hope they keep the 3rd/1st person aswell. I'd be interested if they're going to keep NPC's in, or what the player cap will be.

I'd be interested in Battlefield 4s player count actually too, and wouldn't mind seeing a map pack for battlefield 4 tide us over with a star wars theme whilst we wait - if they're starting from scratch should be 2 years off.

They really need to do it right, they already have Battlefield 2142 for their Battlefield sci-fi shooter.

Hopfully they'll add the third or first person option too.

Wasn't it confirmed as 64 players on consoles? (along with the 'Commander Mode' announcement). After playing BF3 on a mate's computer, there's quite a difference...so I'd have thought that would be the minimum for Battlefront, depending how large the maps are, and whether space/land battles are 'simulanteous' (which would be epic!).

SW map pack? How about expansion along the lines of BC2: Vietnam? 8)
