Star Wars: Battlefront Summary
A new update for the multiplayer online shooter Star Wars: Battlefront has been released, with an aim to balance gameplay, which has brought with it an outcry from the community about certain weapons being "nerfed".
Today, EA hosted a livestream event from their UK branch in which they discussed the upcoming free DLC for the Star Wars: Battlefront, The Battle of Jakku, which releases tomorrow (December 1) for those who pre-ordered the game and December 8 for all other players. In concluding, EA dropped a new cinematic reveal trailer for the DLC showing off a Walker Assault battle on the new Jakku map.
If Star Wars: Battlefront does one thing particularly well, it's building an experience that really does its best to make you feel like you're fighting in the world of the original trilogy. Nonetheless, there's a mod in progress out there working towards making the visuals of the game look almost perfect.
Star Wars: Battlefront is turning heads for certain and is turning out to be the greatest game launch in the history of the Star Wars franchise, as well as the strongest digital launch in EA's history. An open letter from Patrick Söderlund, Executive Vice President of EA Studios expressed gratitude, but also hinted at plans for free DLC outside of 'Battle for Jakku'.
