Battlefield minus the super-boring modern military setting? I could get on board for that. Sadly, without really having done any research, I fear this game might loose a lot of potential by trying to squeeze the age rating down, like most or all Star Wars games..

Yeah but GL isnt on the helm with this one, the same guys behind battlefield is.  I am sure it will probably be T for teen.

ESRB T equals something like a 13-14 year rating, am'rite? (We use PEGI here in Norway)

Still, I don't really see a serious FPS working out with anything less than a M/17/18 rating..

..we'll see.

I dunno, the last 2 battlefront games were marked T for teen (must be 13-14 or older).  Most of the star wars games aimed at little kids are E (everyone).  I am optimistic that they make it gritty or at least just as violent as the others.

Well I'll be frank, I see this video as nothing more than "so ok, we bought the Star Wars rights, now we have to show our stock holders that we're actually doing something with this." Is there any gameplay out? Chances are this thing was whooped up in a month.

I fail to see you're point. It was public knowledge that work was being done with battlefront 3 the same month disney closed down lucas arts and that it had been in development by DICE instead (as the teaser showed). Them showing the teaser is less for the stock holders and more to rile up interest to probably start a viral marketing campaign as this is a highly beloved series.    I can see you're pessimism based on EA's track record but considering that this game is pretty much battlefield (one of their successful franchises) with star wars I think DICE and EA can deliver.  And if they did whip this teaser up in a month, who cares?  As long as the game itself doesnt seem thrown together than what does it matter?

It's just that videos like these are just empty promises, it's obvious that it's been pre-rendered. So what are they showing? 20 seconds of what I assume is the fight for Hoth, in a perspective from which nothing can be seen in detail.

Yes this is a hype video. And that's what is disturbing me so much about it. I've been hyped by EA before, they're good at that. What they are not good at is to actually deliver on the vague promises they give their customers. For the longest time, EA claimed that they were building Battlefield 3 with a PC first mentality, only to redact that statement shortly before publishing the game.

The thing I'm just trying to say is that I am not willing to give EA the benefit of the doubt anymore. They messed up way too often, and I would be super pissed if they messed this up too. I love Star Wars, but seeing it in EAs greedy hands just makes me incredibly sad.

Teaser trailers are pretty worthless in determining anything about the game. It suggests that it'll be first person, but otherwise there's nothing. Gonna wait for gameplay before I decide if it looks interesting.

If it's just a reskinned battlefield, then I can't really see any reason to get it. And if I know my modern shooters, they've found a way to make Star Wars brown.

Hoth needs to be put in the goddamn vault for at least one or two games. It's basically the Star Wars version of the Sewer Level in fantasy RPGs. It's just fucking lazy as shit.

This!

Everyone, name a game that has been set in the original trilogy and NOT featured Hoth. I suppose one good thing about the prequel games is that they started basing everything on Naboo instead. And if they absolutely need a snow level, bring back Fest.

There are some amazing XL-size map mods for Battlefront 2 floating out there on the internet that make the original Hoth level look like a child's playbox.

DICE is probably one of the most experienced in this sort of multiplayer format, and imo probably the only AAA developers out there at the moment capable of pulling this off, what with fan expectations and all.

I just cant believe the Hoth hate.  Its the only big land engagement in the original trilogy.  Endor was just a guerrilla battle with a small force.  Hoth was where the empire's might hammered down on the rebel's main base.  Its iconic! :psyduck:

would love to see some tatooine urban warfare or perhaps some naboo wilderness combat like heavy metal or harvest day in BC2

@satsugaikaze: DICE so hard!  :-D I agree with you 100%!!!!

I played it on the xbox so it wasnt that big (maybe 8 players on each side with a ton of NPCs running around).  I just hope that the next will be like BC2 and BF3 in that it supports a large number of people and no NPCs.  I got battlefront 2 for the cpu when it was on a steam sale but not sure how to play it online or if there is a large player base for it.  I know there is a star wars mod for CoD4 which looked fantastic!
at work so I found this real quick.  There are a few out there.

No. They haven't shown any gameplay at all, they don't deserve the hype. All they did was say "we're trying to stay true to the original source" and played a PR firm of how great their studio is, to combat the bad reputation EA has.

That trailer showed nothing of value.

Being that DICE is doing it, I am actually excited.  They have done great work with the battlefield license (even under EA!) and I hope they bring that to the battlefront license considering its the same kind of game but set in the star wars universe.

So because they fumbled a bit with BF4 that makes BFBC2 and BF3 failures? That article is 6 months old.  Are the bugs and other issues fixed? Honestly if a massive multilayer game didn't have bugs when it came out I'd be suspicious (though grateful). BF4 seems to work just fine for my friends and online gaming clan.

That game was three months old when the article was published. Are you telling me that EA, with their INFINITE FUNDS can't publish a working game at launch? They've become synonymous for shoddy business practices. You can't publish a half finished game, not when you're AAA and publishing YOUR FLAGSHIP GAME FOR THE SEASON.

So at E3 many people playing Battlefront on the Hoth battle noted that the air combat was terrible and very limiting.  I am hoping that with this new trailer the devs took the feedback and fixed it, and added an all air combat only mode that is not limiting.
