As we all know by now, DICE is currently developing the eagerly awaited Star Wars: Battlefront. Rumors and speculation of a new Battlefront game have plagued the internet for over eight years, and news has finally been dropped of a release time frame.
The announcement came during E3 2013 and Electronic Arts’ Media Briefing. According to Blake Jorgensen, CFO of Electronic Arts, the current release date for Star Wars: Battlefront is in the summer of 2015. There’s no doubt for the reasoning behind this specific time frame; Episode VII is slated to release in the summer of 2015.
Details are still slim regarding the game itself, but every detail that has been released to the public thus far is very encouraging. I know many people are worried that Battlefront will be a Battlefield 3 clone. Is that really a bad thing? Truthfully, that’s exactly what I want. Battlefield 3 was and is an amazing game. The action is intense, the sound is impeccable, and the graphics are light years better than any other FPS on the market today. I don’t want third-person, I want in-the-trenches first person action. Sure, I really enjoyed Battlefront 1 & 2, but they were a bit too arcady for my taste. Give me grit. Give me grunt. Give me realistic war-like action set in the Star Wars universe. Imagine deploying as a Snowtrooper, running between the legs of AT-ATs, as lasers zip by your head and Snowspeeders zoom over you. First person please!
Stayed tune folks! Our Star Wars dreams are about to become a realty in 2015. A dream team is making Episode VII, and an amazing game developer is taking the reigns of one of the most eagerly anticipated Star Wars games of all time.
