If you haven’t marked November 17 on your calendar yet, then maybe it’s about time you do. Why? Because that’s the planned release date for the much anticipated Star Wars Battlefront from DICE, Lucasfilm, and Electronic Arts (EA).
Star wars Battlefront is the third entry in the hugely popular Battlefront series.
Battlefront started life as a Xbox, Playstation 2, and PC game back in 2004. Since then there have been 4 other games in the series, and the new Battlefront from DICE will be the 6th release.
Based on the same Frostbite engine that has powered the most recent Battlefield games, Star Wars Battlefront will allow players to fight on their feet, in a variety of vehicles, and in locations inspired by iconic corners of the Star Wars universe.
If you’re thinking that this game will basically be Battlefield with a Star Wars skin, then you would be half correct. The look and feel is somewhat familiar, although the subject matter does give it some personality of its own. Electronic Arts has gone to great lengths to play down the Battlefield comparisons, but considering that the two games are highly similar underneath the hood, we think the comparisons are fair. That’s not a bad thing though, the game play in the Battlefield games is some of the best shooter action that you can find on any platform.
Check out the new trailer and make up your own mind, and save some time for November this year when the game releases for Microsoft Windows, Playstation 4, and Xbox One.
