  1. The curtain has fallen. EA and DICE unveiled the first substantial trailer for the next-gen reboot of the beloved franchise. Players will be able to battle across the Galaxy on planets like Hoth, Endor, Tatooine, and Sullust. Like previous games in the Star Wars Battlefront series, expect to be able to pilot a variety of vehicles running the gamut from speederbikes to AT-ATs. Another returning feature will be the ability to take on the role of powerful figures in the Star Wars universe, like Darth Vader or Boba Fett. Players will be able to swap between 3rd and 1st-person perspectives while fighting as either the Republic or the Empire in online multiplayer supporting up to 40 players or offline in single player or co-op through a crafted series of missions. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like there will be space combat maps like in Battlefront 2, but there is always hope for post-release additions through DLC. Even though space combat appears to be off the table for now, players will still be able to get their TIE fighter fix. Spacecraft like the X-wings, Y-wings, and even the Millenium Falcon will be able to take to the skies and dogfight for aerial supremacy. “Like so many others around the world, everyone at DICE is a tremendous fan of the Star Wars universe,” said Sigurlina Ingvarsdottir, senior producer of Star Wars Battlefront. “To be working on a Star Wars project and knowing we are helping to represent the universe we love to our generation and a legion of new Star Wars fans is truly an honor. Thanks to the access and knowledge shared with us by Lucasfilm, and the passion and talent of our team, we plan to deliver an amazing game that puts you right in the middle of the Star Wars battles you always imagined playing.” DICE is even offering a tantalizing pre-order bonus for hardcore Star Wars fans: Early access to the Battle of Jakku, an important battle that occurs after the Battle of Endor and precedes the events of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens. Those that pre-order will be able to play on the two maps set on Jakku come December 1st, while those that don't pre-order will have to wait for the conflict to unlock for free on December 8th. Star Wars Battlefront is slated for release on November 17 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

  2. Star Wars Battlefront II was undoubtedly EA’s centerpiece attraction this E3, with the company dedicating more than half an hour of their press event to the team shooter juggernaut. After a new trailer that featured never before seen maps, heroes, and vehicles, EA presented a long look at a single multiplayer match. Keep reading for a full rundown of everything we saw. EA’s live demo featured the new “Assault on Theed” map, set on the lush and architecturally luxurious planet of Naboo. The map seems to be taking a lot of inspiration from the final battle of Episode One: The Phantom Menace, where Separatist droids fought with the Naboo army in the streets and palace halls of Naboo’s royal city. Much like the Hoth map in the 2015 Battlefront, the assaulting team (Separatists instead of Emperial this time) must escort a siege tank to the front doors of the Naboo royal palace, tear down its defenses, and shut down enemy activity inside the palace. Players are able to take the form of your standard Star Wars prequel trilogy characters, including variants of battle droids and clone troopers. The live demo showcased players competing for every inch of a sprawling, dense, yet surprisingly spacious lane of activity. When players weren’t fighting building to building on either flank, they were sprinting across the large center roadway along the siege tank’s path. Clone troopers were able to make use of AT-RT “chicken walker” tanks, bite-sized prototypes of the original trilogy’s AT-ST’s. The AT-RTs are capable of sprinting long distances in mere seconds, although it seems their attack capabilities are withdrawn as a result. When they are firing lasers, droids are easily mowed down with ease, though the lackadaisical pace puts clone troopers in a vulnerable spot. Separatist droids have their classic battle tanks at hand, which can shells at a modest pace or lock themselves into siege mode, which provides greater power but zero mobility. Clone troopers won’t have to rely on just AT-RTs to get around though. Higher class troopers can spawn with the same jetpacks seen in 2015’s Battlefront. However, the droids might have air superiority in the skies above Naboo, with their numerous vulture droid starfighters dogfighting clone V-Wings. Players were able to zip around the city at daringly low altitudes, in between large stone arches, though any level of contact is of course instant death. Heroes and villains are sure to get their due as well. After the first stage of the battle is complete, and the palace doors blown to bits by the droid’s siege tank, Darth Maul made his debut by chopping up clones into itty bitty pieces. He’ll have some deadly moves, including a lightsaber toss and spiral lunge that can decimate tightly packed groups of enemies. Rey showed up, too, but her player couldn’t hold a candle to Maul’s malevolence, so it was a bit of wash. Evidently, Rey will be able to make use of her Jedi mind control powers she tapped into in “The Force Awakens” to momentarily stun enemies. The live demo ended with the droids taking the palace throne room, essentially walking all over the clones, and ensuring their victory by numbers. While the Frostbite engine will always impress, and while Naboo is certainly a colorful locale to do battle in, it remains to be seen if Battlefront II will be able to differentiate itself from its predecessor. Make sure to check out the gameplay trailer for a more varied look at where Battlefront II will take players later this year. View full article

  4. EA debuted a sizeable amount of Star Wars: Battlefront II gameplay footage at E3 Saturday. A two-minute in-engine trailer showed off a load of Star Wars universe icons, including clone troopers fighting Separatist battle droids in the streets and palace hallways of Naboo, heroes and villains like Darth Maul, Rey, and Boba Fett. The trailer also featured unique locales, such as an as-of-yet unnamed ice planet, a jungle planet with wildlife, and our favorite space bears, the wookies. New vehicles were also featured, including the Naboo starfighter, a V-Wing, droid starfighter, and ground units like the Trade Federation armored assault tanks and AT-RTs, small walker units similar to the much larger AT-STs meant for individual clone troopers. Space combat makes its debut as well, featuring a heated dogfight between Empire TIE fighters and rebel X-Wings and the Millenium Falcon. Check out the trailer for a full look at the gameplay and Naboo map, and make sure to check back later for a full rundown of EA’s live demo of Star Wars Battlefront II. There was a ton of footage and gameplay to chew through. What has you most excited for the next iteration of Battlefront? View full article

  6. DICE has announced that the second bundle of downloadable content for their Star Wars shooter will be heading to the gassy planet of Bespin this month. Season pass holders will have access to the Bespin pack on June 21, while non-pass holders will have to wait a couple weeks to dig into the new content. The developers are aiming to bring back some of the scale that many felt was missing from the first batch of DLC. On top of that commitment, players will be able to blast around Cloud City as Lando Calrissian as well as the bounty hunter Dengar, best known for being lampooned on Robot Chicken. Two new blasters and some additional maps have been stated to be on the way as well, though DICE has remained tight-lipped on what those maps will contain. Of course this news comes in advance of EA's pre-E3 press conference on Sunday, at which time we will probably know more. Though the publisher will not be at E3 proper, it is throwing its own event several blocks away, overlapping with E3 itself. Perhaps we might even hear something about the Star Wars Battlefront sequel that EA has stated is in development next week? View full article

  8. The classic Super Nintendo title Super Star Wars has made its way onto the PlayStation Store as a cross-buy for both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. The last time Super Star Wars was re-released was 2009 on the Wii Virtual Console. Sony touts the various ways in which they have updated the new version of the 1992 SNES game. The update brings saving, leaderboards, achievements, display modes, and controller layouts. As a cross-buy title, a single purchase of the game unlocks it for play on both PS4 and PS Vita. Currently Super Star Wars is listed as $9.99 on PSN. View full article

  11. EA did it. They finally did it. After years of hopeful gamers waiting for a third installment in the Star Wars Battlefront series, a hope that was nearly crushed with the recent closure of LucasArts, EA released less than a minute of cinematic footage, which you can watch below. The trailer clearly meant to invoke the feeling and memories of the Hoth invasion, which has been seen in numerous Star Wars games throughout the years after dazzling generations of original trilogy film fans. It has been nearly eight years since Star Wars Battlefront II was released and finally there might be a new reason for fans of the series to be excited for a polished follow up to one of the most successful Star Wars titles of all time. What do you think? Is this something worth getting our hopes up for? View full article
