Star Wars: Battlefront Latest News
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'.
Free Star Wars Battlefront DLC Battle for Jakku available December 1 for preorders, introduces new game mode
Electronic Arts has announced that The Battle for Jakku, a free downloadable content pack for Star Wars: Battlefront, will be available 1 December 2015 for players who preordered the game, and a week later on the 8th for those who didn't. The DLC adds a new game mode, Turning Point, and two new maps.
One of the more curious omissions from Star Wars Battlefront was the lack of any wars among the stars. Space battles were something that the developer actually teased early in the year by mentioning Star Destroyers involved in dogfights.
When EA Dice posted a screenshot from Star Wars Battlefront on Twitter asking "Have you seen better StarWarsBattlefront moments than these?", the fan reaction was swift and sarcastic, along the lines of "yeah, space battles".
Star Wars: Battlefront hosts a bunch of nods to the classic trilogy like the Wilhelm scream or the numerous classic lines delivered by heroes, but there's an Easter egg that was discovered recently featuring perhaps the most infamously hilarious bit from Star Wars movies.
