They also confirmed that it will appear on current gen consoles... although I swear they confirmed that ages ago.

Kewl. Looking forward to it, though I hope they worked on the SP more than they have done with the BF series. If we don't get IA, I at least want a campaign as engrossing as the Bad Company games.

EA said they are going to release a new Star Wars Battlefront 3 trailer on April 17 at 10:30 a.m. Pacific / 1:30 p.m. Eastern

Post by: Gistech on April 03, 2015, 01:37:56 AM
Maybe you could field some questions if they're taking them too?

I'd like to know hwo they're differentiating this game from their Battlefield series, because some people still think this will amount to "Star Wars Battlefield". And what they are going to do with the single player experience, given SP is as big a factor in previous entries in the SWBF series as MP.

Well I didn't know the exact type, but it just looked heavier than the classic E-11. Probably a heftier support class we're seeing there. Kinda hope they keep it class based like the old ones, and that rocket gunning is still a thing (oh I love my rockets!)  :wub:
Title: Re: SWBF Reveal at SW Celebration
Post by: Gistech on April 14, 2015, 01:56:55 PM
I wonder how much they'll be pulling from the old EU material. Other new media has done so (such as the Purge Trooper, TIE Defender and AT-MP being in Star Wars Commander or the B2 Grapple Droid from the ROTS game)
Title: Re: SWBF Reveal at SW Celebration
Post by: Commander Awesome on April 14, 2015, 02:11:29 PM
I hope they at least bring back the Rebel hovertanks. It would suck to have no ground vehicles for them.

There's a play-tester (which he satisfactorily proved) on another forum who just confirmed it's 1st person and 3rd person... 3rd person by default!
He won't confirm anything else due to the non-disclosure agreement.

Take it with salt obviously, because he might just be a really good fake.

Ooh! That's interesting! So they do get Battlefront. I wonder what will be up for Single Player. If they got that much right, then Single Player may be more than just a campaign. Count me sold if that's true.

Otherwise, that does look pretty epic. I was anticipating the new Episode VII armor instead, but this is still awesome.

Title: Re: SWBF Reveal at SW Celebration
Post by: Gistech on April 16, 2015, 12:55:50 AM
You could easily have told this was going to be based on the classic stormtrooper, especially as a picture of the Episode VII stormtrooper was posted a few hours back.

I'm curious as to what this unit will actually do. Looks to me like the equivalent of the classic Shock Trooper unit, so probably heavy weapons.

Considering that looks really close to how the Frostbite shaders look, (the new shot with the scout trooper) I'm pretty sure that's an in-game shot. Could be wrong, but considering it's only going to next gen and PC I think it could look that good in-game.

Okay so while I'm debating if the Delux is worth the five additional items, I'm wondering if there will be a hard disc version later? Hard to say since it's just through Origin right now, I just like having the option of a hard copy when going all out.

I'm sure you can pre order a hard copy a little later since it was just announced today but you will still have to use origin to play the game.

Im wondering what the requirements are, probably a GTX 660 recommended.

Well I'm gonna have to wait this one out to see about that then (cuz dats got me written all over it). I'll be moved into another place by that time so I gotta make sure it would even go to the right address. I'll still be running it on my older GTX 580. May not be able to max it, but it still handles pretty good on these newer games.  :cheers:

After the disaster that was the campaigns of BF3, BF4 and Hardline, I think this is the sensible route. However, in counter to that, it's not like they'd have to make up an original story.

I'm at the celebration anything you guys want me to ask them tell me here and ill ask them first hand Anything And do it like relatively quickly ill get back to you ASAP

What will the single player experience be like? Will it just be the 'crafted missions'? Are those missions equivalent to the classic Instant Action mode of the old games?

A game this amazing surely won't have mod tools. Especially since I saw something about custom troopers. What a shame.. It looks like everything SWBF could have been and wanted to be. I doubt there will be much more of a community than any COD game, but it still looks like they did SWBF justice with their EABF. You will never win the hearts of modders with your 'controlled' modding, DICE!  :P

Still pre-ordering. I think people are overreacting to the no space combat thing. SWBF1 certainly did fine without it...and if the space mode was going to be tacked on like SWBF2's sorta was, then maybe it's better to leave it as expansion content.

Also, if I get to slaughter ewoks from the cockpit of an AT-AT, that's worth $60 right there  :moo:

Now this man is a true fan. I'm only waiting to see if it'll remain only Downloadable, otherwise I'll preorder once if that's all there's gonna be for PC. Just something about having the actual game in your hands. Nothing gon beat that.

But on another note it's stated that it's gonna be really setup for friends/squads as I'm hearing. So we need to establish a group representing us in the game when it comes out. Not sure if there's gonna be community managed servers (optional community servers?) or if it will be all EAs stuff hosting it. Either way, as we're pretty much longtime friends here, we ought to press on with the new SWBF in style. Get'n organized, be'n readying for release you know?

Yeah, a while ago we discussed some type of confederation of SWBF1 clans. I think if I like it enough I will bring back =AaTc= full force, in which case I will gladly join any SWBF1 clan group. I have a feeling it'll be like a reunion with all the old players coming back to try the new game. We need to make sure they know we are here! I think we will make a separate thread to flesh out ideas sometime this summer.

What I'd like to know is whether there will be private servers that clans can host and recruit on, or if SWBF3 will just use a matchmaking system. I'd like to be able to join a server that plays heroes mode all the time, or has a set playlist of maps like in SWBF1.

Hi guys,

Don't know where I should post this, but I'm pretty excited about it:

So it seems this is the equivalent to Instant Action in older games.

Don't say "this is it" yet. EA haven't shown us everything for usre, and more will definitely be revealed at E3.

I want the jetpack and missile launcher.  And while I'm at it, throw in that air strike too.  Also, give me excellent graphics and explodey things, and that's a game that I want.

No UI shown yet but man I get the feels when I see this shot.

Honestly I feel the only other game that made the E-11 really cool was JK2: Jedi Outcast, and to me that shot really retains the cool factor (as well as correct scale).

Shoutouts to no story mode.

Not like we played SWBF for story mode to begin with.

The game looks DANK. All we need is real gameplay now.

Regardless of what's in it or not from the original games, I'm still hyped, and will probably get more hyped when we see some actual gameplay. DICE has, for the most part, done their homework.

I do love the irony that some are calling this a 'Battlefield reskin' when SWBF is a Battlefield clone to begin with.

It looks like amazon has the PC disc version for pre-order, doesn't have the deluxe edition for some reason.

Interesting, I might go for the Amazon pre-order, it looks slightly cheaper. :P

And for those too lazy to have clicked the link, this is apparently going to be the box art:

Looks reminiscent of the old Battlefield 3 box art to me.

I really want a disc version of the game, but the fact that they don't have the Premium version available is a bit of a bummer. I'm guessing it is unlikely for them to add the premium version later?

And just a side note Gold Man, but that is the cover art for the Standard version, the Premium version of the game apparently has a black cover. (Just solid black.) I wasn't sure if you had seen that yet.

Yeah, I noticed the Deluxe Edition had a flat black color on it. Still, you have to admit the standard box art looks pretty nice.

I just hope EA/DICE doesn't go mad with making multiple different versions and have various content for every version. (Referring to how Watch Dogs had 10 editions of the game, with varying degrees of exclusive content, and not one single edition contained all of it.)

Yeah, I like the art from the Standard version much better. :)

Agreed, that would quickly become a nightmare. The whole idea of "premium pre-order" exclusive content is just a bunch of baloney, and the thought that they might DLC it to death is just dis-heartening, but having "blah-blah-blah" version only content would be over the top.

Hmmmm.... better box art or premium stuff? Decisions, decisions, decisions.

It'll either have the release version, or a code for Origin. I was looking at that yesterday trying to decide if it was a digital download code, or a disc version. If it's a disc copy like I think, then I'm totally getting that.

I'm glad it's only GCW, makes it much easier to pretend the prequels never happened.
