    Que the blasting Lucas orchestra, Star Wars battlefront is on its way to our galaxy!​
    EA has finally shed some light on its upcoming Star Wars title, with an avid mindset of having the game come out this holiday 2015. There is a high chance that the game will be released in conjunction with Star Wars: The Force Awakens, releasing December of this year.​
    EA has also confirmed more light will be shed on the project at the upcoming Star Wars celebration in Anaheim California, April 16 to 19th.​

    The game is most likely going to run on DICE's frostbite 3 engine, the exact same engine used in the Battlefield franchise.

    Needless to say, I am very excited for the release of the next Battlefront game. In conjunction with The Force Awakens this coming holiday, I think Star Wars fans alike will have a lot to keep them busy this season!

    I'm excited but very weary for this game, if it's riddled with DLC and microtransactions I won't pick it up.

    If it's limited to just battle packs like Hardline was, I'll be perfectly fine with it.

    If they try to charge me per character, per map, per weapon, per ANYTHING, then I'll kick it into the same pit Darth Maul's rotting in.

    I will buy it regardless of the DLC situation - the more extra content the better as long as the core game is top notch.

    Looking forward to this. Quite liking the Battlefield series atm, even tho Hardline was a bit too expensive for what it had as content.

    Weary:
    adjective - reluctant to see or experience any more of; tired of.
    verb - grow tired of or bored with.

    Either or works in this instance.

    The movie is more than likely going to be shit, but this should make up for it.

    Holiday 2015 isn't news, they said the same thing at E3 last year.

    Same here, I used to be a hardcore FPS fan but there's been nothing good over the past few years. I actually built my PC anticipating this, though I'm thinking of downgrading my PC and getting an Xbox One as I'm not happywith the current state of PC gaming. But I'm worried they will shaft visual quality in favor of an unnecessary framerate on XB1 like most companies seem to do these days.
    This part concerns me though: "EA Digital Illusions CE's take on what the "Battlefront" series should be."
    I wasn't a fan of EA's take of Mass Effect nor am I a fan of their other shooters.

    Moving from pc to xbone sounds like a downgrade indeed. I can understand people who get ps, since sony usually has some nice exclusives but xbone ?

    Well, Xbox has Halo, a highly regarded FPS series.

    As of Budokai 3's multiplat remaster that is no longer true.
    I can't see any reason to buy a Sony console, Dragon Ball games are always multiplat now (the only real reason Budokai 3 didn't get a GC release was due to disc size) and play much better with an Xbox controller, in addition to better versions of Dragon Ball games there's Halo, Perfect Dark, Conker and a more stable and secure online service on Xbox.

    I wonder how this will do. One one hand, The old ones were really good, and this one is made my Dice, who handled the battlefield games very very well. However, on the other, I hope I am not just looking at this through rose colored glasses.
