One of the most anticipated games of all times, Star Wars Battlefront is finally going to see the light of the day.
There have been scores of rumors about the game, and so far, we did not know much about it other than some occasional footage of the game and the fact that DICE had big plans for it. Battlefront is another in the long line of games based on the hugely popular Star Wars franchise. The only difference is that this one actually looks respectful. So far, Star Wars fans have been very disappointed with the kind of games that have been coming up through the franchise. It seems that their woes would end soon, now that EA and DICE have set the release dates.
The reason Star Wars Battlefront has been so anticipated is that it was first announced in 2013 at the E3 2013. Since then, fans have been eagerly awaiting more information on the game. DICE was sympathetic to their expectations and continued to give them updates on the game. In fact, DICE continued to offer footage and information on the game through the stages of development, attempting to engage the fans meaningfully. A lot has happened between the teaser trailer that was showcased in 2013, and the game that will finally be released next year.
What Do We Know About the Game?
EA has been kind enough to let fans know that Star Wars Battlefront 3 will be designed on the Frostbite 3 engine. The Battlefront franchise, which was established in 2004, is finally getting its third installment, and this one is going to be bigger than the previous two combined. The game is likely to be a relaunch of the franchise, rather than being a continuation of its predecessor. In the first showcase of the game, EA also divulged some other details of the game, including the fact that Hoth and Endor, both would be playable maps in the game. Hoth is a faraway planet, while Endor is a forest moon, both of which have figured in the Star Wars series. Apart from these facts that came straight from EA and DICE, we have also seen some random footage from the game, and some interesting concepts. There have been rumors that this time around, the gameplay will also include several vehicles and ships that will be set in the Star Wars universe, and can be controlled by players.
EA has been developing Star Wars Battlefront 3, which will be distributed by LucasArts – a name that has been associated with Star Wars since a long time. The game should hit the markets for PS4, Xbox One and PC sometime in the summer of 2015. The release date has been strategically placed to be close to the release of the Star Wars Episode VII, a highly anticipated sequel to one of the most popular movie franchises of all times, and the franchise on which the game is based. It is highly probable that the game may benefit from the success of the movie, which comes out after years of waiting around.
