Star Wars: Battlefront Announced For Next-Gen Consoles

Star Wars Battlefront Announce News Edit

Star Wars: Battlefront was announced moments ago at the EA E3 2013 press conference.

Frank Gibeau, President of Electronic Arts, revealed the game. The cinematic trailer was brief, only showing a snow speeder and an Imperial AT-AT Walker's giant foot. We'll learn more about Star Wars: Battlefront throughout the week.

Ooh man, EA...DO NOT FUCK THIS UP, YOU HEAR ME?!?!?!

Cannot. Wait. *SQUEEEEEEE*!

So they are rereleasing the original? Cool.

This better be good. I hope this makes it to PC and is somehow not fucked up by EA. I also hope this is free of Origin. Sadly this won't ever happen ever. But this might be the game to break my long EA abstinence...... if it holds up.

Heheheh.

I wondering how many EA "boycotts" will be broken on account of this.

Remember folks, it's EA, so the PC version - if there is one - will be on Origin.

EDIT: Heh. Ninja'd... kinda.

I'm not surprised that DICE is making a new Battlefront game. I am only surprised that they announced it so soon.

The cinematic trailer is already filling me with dread. I'm worried this is going to be another Star Wars game that doesn't feel like Star Wars at all, just Battlefield reskinned. The Old Republic felt like WoW reskinned and the Force Unleashed felt like a generic hack 'n slash reskinned. It's been a long time since we've had a game that was really designed from the ground up to be Star Wars

I've been boycotting EA for a while now, they've not seen a cent from me. I am not a starwars fan, infact I'd go as far as to say I'm kinda turned off by the IP entirely. I like my scifi to be a little more hard.

You speak for us all my friend. Finally they listen to what the fans want. :-)Hope they dig into the Star Wars universe and add loads of new stuff.....not just stuff from the movies. Hope this will be epic.

I hope its good but I suspect it will be average and a bit rushed.

Yeah with those measly 30 million users origin has been hit hard by the boycotts. Come on ,hold the line, we have got them on the ropes. Now how many origin points do I have......

A new Battlefront game?

The gaming gods have finally answered our prayers! Rejoice!

Well aren't you a ray of sunshine?

The Force Unleasshed was designed ground up to be Star Wars, sure the second one was a little meh, but the first one as i recall was a hidden gem when it was released, something that went generally un-noticed by many, yet was popular within the fandom, for most anyway. A nice little filler between eps 3 and 4

The second one i wont get into for OBVIOUS reasons, but the Force Unleashed was by no means a bad game.

Well that's one hopeful game announcement down. Now I'm just waiting for Last Guardian, Half-life 3 and KH3.

Some people have negative opinions of some games I know =D I didn't like the Force Unleashed, it felt like you were batting stormtroopers to death

OhEmGee.

I might actually have to buy a Next-Gen console for this.

MY BALLS! MY BALLS JUST FUCKING EXPLODED! MY TESTICLES ARE ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE ROOOM!

EA

EA

You have a great weight on your shoulders. You must treat at least this series with respect. Screw Mass Effect, Battlefield, etc. Get this right, or you're so dead to me.

Other than that: prayers have been answered, Battlefront has not been abandoned to time.

Praise Jeebus!

This better be good, or else I'll... play something else I guess. Would be a real shame if it sucked, but I'd be surprised if lives up to Battlefront II (or at least people's expectations).

In a bid to bring players back, EA is toying with forces beyond the comprehension of both it and us. Everyone needs to be cautious here.

It was announced as a Next-gen title using the Frostbite Engine.

If it's not coming out on PC, I have literally zero interest in this. And I'm not becoming a console gamer just to play it.

Excited at the Idea of a new Battlefront game but because it is EA I will remain cautious about how well it will come out.

Luckily it's advertised for the PS4 as well, so goody goody.

Well unless its origin free I can't even get excited about this. Can't wait to see the microtransactions and DLC packs roll in for this game.

Technically speaking I should be excited for this, but in the originals it was the single player that I loved and I can't see EA doing it justice. I imagine the single player will be a tacked on couple of hours with the main focus being multiplayer, multiplayer, multiplayer.

Well, assuming EA does nothing else to piss me off in the coming year, I probably still will not get it because I do not want to use Origin. Just one of those things, really.

Oh well, glad to see it hasn't disappeared to the aether at least.

I don't see a three

It's sad when the best reason to buy a next gen console is EA.

I hope they release it on a console that supports used games, because I'd like to buy this without supporting EA.

They have to generate hype as fast as possible, lest Disney look at how The Old Republic is doing...

I could swear there was a Battlefront II, and that I've played it. WTF EA?

Anyway, interesting to know that the first new game announced is an old game. Who needs new ideas anyway?

EA! I SWEAR! THIS IS THE ONLY STAR WARS GAME-SERIES I'VE EVER LOVED. IT WAS PART OF MY PS2 CHILDHOOD. IF YOU FUCK THIS UP, I'LL COME AFTER YOU AND I WONT STOP UNTIL EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOUR BUILDINGS IS BURNED DOWN. DO NOT FUCK THIS UP.

Other then that, AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!! :DDDDDDDDDDDDDD COME ON DICE, PULL THROUGH! YOU GOT THIS!

And the internet goes wild.

Don't get too excited people. This *is* EA after all, they'll find some way to cock things up...

That's what they do. It's all that they do.

Quite possibly the first best move you could make with the rights to Star Wars video games.

I go away for a weekend and come back to Mirror's Edge 2 and a new Battlefront, am I dead, or only dreaming?

Hey, I see what's going on here, They're imposters! HEY, you, yeah you! I'm on to you, what did you do with the real EA?!

For Next-Gen Consoles?

Damn, I was looking forward to playing this too. Oh well.
