Star Wars Battlefront Beta Overview

Recommended Posts

Electronic Arts and DICE have release Star Wars Battlefront in a beta version. This has attracted attention from every gaming front, and =ADK= will be sponsoring a Battlefront section.

 

 

Thirty-seven years after its initial release, it seems the American epic-classic Star Wars will be enduring for years to come, both through the December 2015 release of the seventh movie, and through Electronic Arts and DICE's new game, Star Wars Battlefront. 

 

Battlefront is currently a free and open beta running from October 8th through Tuesday the 13th. Battlefront is EA's second Star Wars game, the first being the successful Knights of the Old Republic. Battlefront uses the same Frostbite 3 engine found in Battlefield Hardline and Battlefield 4, also EA and DICE games. The game takes place on the planet of Tatooine, a familiar setting to those with previous knowledge of Star Wars. 

 

The graphics in the snow filled and bombed hills are incredibly detailed from the snowflakes and icicles to the player's footprints in the snow. The detail continues to the ships and war machines, making the overall scene of war on a wasteland strangely beautiful.  The maps are limited to 16 players for smaller matches, and 64 on the bigger maps. The players can play either as the Rebel or the Empire sides, the latter of which has been commented on as notably more powerful. Battlefront has also been reviewed as a very straightforward run and shoot game, but challenging in its fast paced warfare. 

 

 

"Overall the game looks great.  Coming out of Beta I was impressed on how well the game looks. The beta limited the game play, but for what I was able to play I liked it."

-Cagregorio, =ADK= Lead Veteran Admin

 

"Though you don’t have to look far to find its Battlefield roots, Battlefront’s a dramatically faster and more straightforward affair. You’re dead after a couple of shots, respawns are instant, battles are two small waves of infantry crashing against each other, receding, then racing straight back. Meantime the skies are filled with convincing but far distant battle, and the ground shakes with explosions."

-Alec Meer, Writer for Rock Paper Shotgun

 

 

Like every game in its beta, Battlefront has some bugs which include latency and spawning. Hopefully EA and DICE will be able to repair these before officially launching the game. Click here to play Star Wars Battlefront.
