A couple of days ago I was having a conversation with a housemate about picking up Star Wars: Battlefront. They ended up picking it up on release mainly because Star Wars is totally awesome and we both have an obsession with being X-Wing/TIE Fighter pilots. But after a couple of weeks with it, they put it down because it's basically, well, the Diet Coke version of a multiplayer game.
By that I mean, there isn't much to do in it other than level up your online character. There aren't enough maps and only a couple of the modes are fun. Of course I mean that subjectively, so I might like flying around in spaceships while you love that kill the hero mode. When I thought about picking it up last week, I decided against it because I'm not really convinced it's worth the retail price of 60 dollars.
And when you add in the 50 dollar Season Pass, the full experience of this game will cost you over 100 bucks. Sure, I'm all for Season Passes for DLC (I've purchased some before) but when the new additions are as underwhelming as this, I still don't feel convinced that I should purchase the game at full price and the Season Pass.
Recently, EA outlined what will be included in their Season Pass:
And out of all of these packs, the only one I'm interested in is the Death Star expansion. Mostly because I have no idea how it'll be implemented and part of me wishes we could recreate the trench run from A New Hope. So if I were EVER to buy this game (and this isn't one of those Rainbow Six: Siege debacles), a couple of things would have to fall into place.
-- The game would HAVE to be on sale for 30 dollars or less.
-- It would have to be after the Fall 2016.
The first one because I can't really justify spending 60 dollars on a game that doesn't have enough content to keep me engaged. And the second one because I really want to see what the Death Star maps are about. But even then, I could probably find a YouTube video just to see everything.
What do you all think? Have you spent full retail price on mainly multiplayer experiences? Or do you have Battlefront? Are you enjoying it? Or is it just not enough?
