The ominous thud of an AT-AT stomping down. Rebel forces firing blasters. Imperial speeder bikes zipping by. Intense dogfights between squadrons of X-wings and TIE fighters filling the skies.
DICE, the studio behind the Battlefield franchise, has taken on the development of the Star Wars Battlefront series with a heavy hand. This is the first trailer to reveal footage of the game in action, and all I can say is I'm bubbling with excitement. I remember playing the old Star Wars Battlefront games as a kid, and I'm sure DICE will bring the series to bigger and better things. DICE will *hopefully* give this series what it deserves.
The only thing worrying me about the development of this game is EA. EA has been known to push its development teams to release games that are unfinished. Take Battlefield 4 for example, it was DICE's first release on the new console systems, and it was pushed to be one of the first games available. Because it was pushed, day 1 bugs weren't fixed until it had been out for over 6 months.
That being said, Battlefield 4 is a great game and not it is as polished as could be.
There are a million things that could go wrong with Star Wars Battlefront, but I'm hopeful.
Now for some beautiful Star Wars Battlefront screenshots!
