Star Wars: Battlefront (or Battlefront 3) will be a reboot of the infamous franchise of the Star Wars universe.
Developed by DICE, the game excited everyone when it was first introduced at the E3 2013 press conference, but not much new information about the upcoming title has been released to this point, leaving fans to speculate and create rumors. With so many rumors going around the web it is hard to keep track of the official information about the game. Can people expect to hear more about Star Wars: Battlefront at the E3 2014, or is it just a hot rumor created by an enthusiastic fan?
Even though at this point it is speculation, there are certain factors that make most rumors about Star Wars: Battlefront quite plausible. Expected to be released in the second or third quarter of 2015, it has been said that the game will be featured at E3 2014 in the last couple of months. However, it wasn’t until a few days ago, when the CEO of EA, Andrew Wilson came forth with an official statement both announcing their new project – Battlefield Hardline, as well as confirming that the EA press conference will feature the long awaited reboot of Star Wars: Battlefront.
Even though Star Wars: Battlefront is in the lineup officially for the EA press conference at E3 2014, people and fans are not certain about whether gameplay footage will be shown or just another teaser. As EA and DICE have received significant criticism because of their falsely advertised and full of bugs Battlefield 4, that fans cynically called ‘Betafield 4,’ critics and players are quite interested to know what exactly the reboot of the franchise will bring. However, it can’t be stated with certainty whether gameplay footage or a teaser will be shown at the annual E3 2014 event.
Star Wars: Battlefront is built under the Frostbite 3 engine and due to the hundreds of bugs in Battlefield 4, the developers of the game had to put a pause on their other projects in order to deal with the issues in the game. This further set back the release date of the reboot of Battlefront with a couple of months, as most fans wonder if this won’t actually harm the overall gaming experience. Even though the game will be built on the Frostbite 3 engine, the developers ensure that it will deliver a true next-gen experience to the players and it will be the interpretation of DICE of what Battlefront should really be. The game will feature certain elements that make it similar to Battlefied 4, such as an extensive multiplayer combat and decent single player campaign and options. However, it will feature some of the original elements of Battlefront that made the game so famous in the first place.
Star Wars: Battlefront is expected to be released in the second or third quarter of 2015 for the next-gen consoles, the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One, as well as the PC.
