  • And finally... The Grand Army of the Republic is on the Offensive!! Nice!
  • Very exciting news! Great work :D
  • Many people have complained about the amount of content released compared to the original, and I somewhat agree. I wish there were a lot more maps and heroes/villains, but...I think there is some good quality work being done, and it looks like they are putting a lot into Geonosis. I can't wait to play and test it out myself.

  • This is some awesome news. Looking good! Thanks DICE and EA for all the hard work. And Yes! We love the final stage battles in Galactic Assault. My personal favorite is the Throne Room on Naboo. I have been in some awesome overtime battles that rage on for long periods of time in there. What a blast!
  • This looks awesome! I can't wait to see how it turns out! I'll have my DC-15 ready.

  • We can only hope DICE added a CHAT system as a surprise for better game play in multiplayer
  • This looks like its going to be fun!!! But please fix the issues with matchmaking !!!!
  • Wow!!! Truly this looks impressive. Consider my hope renewed in BF2. Thank you for the in depth news Ben!
  • Looking forward to this massive update! Dice is really adding a whole new aspect to the game! This new game mode sounds outstanding! I like this strategy of releasing little details and pictures of content coming soon instead of waiting until a few days before it's released. I appreciate not having to wait for a leak. I'm glad Dice hasn't given up on BF2, and I think it has a bright future!
  • Looking guuuuud, DICE!!

  • Fantastic. Any word on if Republic Gunships will have an increased or major role on this map? It wouldn't be Geonosis without them. Reinforcement wise it would be great to finally see some Destroyer Droids, or on the Republic side ARC Troopers or Republic Commandos. Looking forward to this, in the original SW:BF Geonosis was easily one of the best maps, so much potential for epic battles. Obi-Wan is looking interesting too. So standard and robed appearances then? An old man Ben Kenobi would also make an excellent skin option. Keep up the good work DICE.

    please add this skin to the Kashyyk map

    Yes, this is needed, or just have him replace the sniper (Specialist) class for the appropriate Clone regiment. Perhaps have this Clone era Scout Trooper as an alternative skin for that class or something?
  • This is definitely gonna be fine time, wish I could select more than one opinion to the post. Both insightful and everything else, I love the communication and news, cannot wait.

    Holy. Absolute. -removed-!!!

    Ok, now, while this still isn't the best game out there, the amount of effort that has gone into just this one update is beyond extraordinary. Thank you for continually supporting this game.

    We need a Tier System for the Heroes. It would justify the "op-ness" of Vader over Han and Chewbacca. It would cost much more to unlock Vader, and would require you to save a lot more than for other heroes and vehicles, but it would be rewarding in the end...

    Here's something really cool from Peter's interview...
    Those are three key characteristics of Geonosis that Peter elaborates on from a level design perspective, saying, “From the beginning, we actually had our new game mode (featuring capture points and capital ships takedowns, set to arrive early next year) in mind. Typically, we design our locations for Galactic Assault and add the smaller game modes where they sort of fit.”

    “But for this one, we designed the level to be totally open, and closed it off for Galactic Assault just to keep the gameplay streamlined. We saw a few cases in playtests where people got confused and thought they could go to areas that we’ll open up for the new mode.”
    We won't even be playing on the whole map! They'll open it up further for Conquest. Sounds rad to me!

  • HYPE i can not wait omggggggggg
  • Arcade?
  • Or other modes?
  • Oh my gosh, that is awesome. We don't even have to get a leak to see Obi-Wan a month early. Great job, DICE.

    The concept is awesome. But I would much prefer to see characters such as Qui-Gon, Mace Windu, Padme, Ashoka and Ventress before I saw these two come into the game. Just my personal opinion, but I know that these all are much stronger characters in Star Wars than Poe and Hux.
  • With the soon releasing Obi-Wan and the release of Anakin in February of next year, does anyone else this that we should definitely be getting MUSTAFAR, where the most ICONIC duel had taken place between these 2!!
    Would also love to see Battlefront 2 build around Anakin's character, including things such as:
    •Mustafar
    •Padme
    •Ashoka
    •Ventress
    •Jedi Temple (on Coruscant)
    All massive factors on the creation of Darth Vader

  • I can't put into words how excited I am for this update! It sounds so amazing!

    I'm happy the AT-TE, BARC Speeder and STAP are finally being added as playable vehicles (I hope the STAP will eventually be added to Naboo), but it'll be a crying shame if the OG-9 Homing Spider Droid does turn out to be non-playable. I'm hoping there will be LR1K sonic cannons for players to utilize.

    I would've loved for the SPHA-T to be added as a new Artillery class for the Republic, and the IG-227 Hailfire-class droid tank and Nantex-class territorial defense starfighter as new Armor and Fighter classes for the Separatists, though. Oh, well.
    "All wings report in."
  • With all of these Prequel Heroes and Villains coming out, I think it's about time we got our heroes and villains:
    • Luke
    • Obi-Wan
    • Anakin
    • Darth Maul
    •(Possibly Kylo Ren and Rey)
    To do flips. This is something that is a must to further this games development. We got front flips and back flips in the Original Battlefront 2, so I don't see any reason as to not making this available for this game.
    Would love feedback on this, cheers.
  • New content is nice. Shame it is more Clone Wars period though.
  • What about ETA ? And also not at the last one ,two days of November cause game is messed up since, last update and there is one to many bugs anyhow at least i hope we will be able to get updates sooner then what we used to..
  • Ah Nevermind i see on 28....

    Nice! So do the clones get 100 ATTEs, or 100 damage counters on the ATTEs? I prefer the first one. ;)

  • ... from the start lets us have a screen lag free experience. You don't have to sell the game so you can turn down the graphics resolution to avoid the type of day one GA lag experience... All these background graphics and player controlled ATTEs feel like a lag source in waiting... design sounds too linear so predictable?
  • need Mace Windu to lead the attack in sandstorm, then Jango Fett to face off with Mace
  • We can only hope obiwan will not be bugged as grievous ...
  • Sounds great. B)
  • Truly looks awesome! Thanks Ben and the DICE gang. You guys are doing a great job, keep it up !
  • Any - even just a tiny bit - love for Starfighter Assault in any of this?

    It’s great GA is getting additional bits but the game does have two core modes - one of which has had no significant content added since launch outside of some remodelled existing ships.

    Even just a confirmation that there is nothing would be nicer than the silence so far.
  • All of this sounds great! I cannot wait to set foot on Geonosis!
  • Very Nice! However, I'm disappointed to hear that the Spider Droid is unplayable and the AT-TE's are only controlled by one person. Is there going to be a chance that this will change in future updates? I want the Spider Droid to be playable and the AT-TE to have multiple people riding it. One to steer and shoot, one to shoot one gun, and one to shoot that other gun, and so on. I hope this does happen eventually, even many people are complaining, so EA might secede to the players? I hope this does happen.
  • This sounds like it's gonna be amazing, and I liked seeing a good old fashioned test map!
    I believe these transmissions have the best way to show excitement for this.

    YOOO YALL HAVE TO FIX A COUPLE BUGS!!!! Luke’s double tap first hit NEVER lands which is very important for that character. General grievous kills a hero within two hits IF coming up from the ground. Among other things. I also think we’d alllll appriate if Chewies ability’s are knocked down just a taddddd bit. I mean he’s easily the simplest and most over powered character in the game. (Grievous kinda is too) OORRRR you could make it so at least one villain light saber could block his bow caster maybe not the furious ability but just the regular blaster. Maybe even all then villain light sabers can block Chewies regular blaster and just the stamina go up faster. Just to consider for HvV but seriously tho fix the Luke thing bc he’s powerless without it. Oh and just a quick thought for the future have sometime of combo scheme with light saber strikes. Maybe having a specific swing with the way you push the view stick. For example, pushing right on the view while attacking will swing to the way the character is looking. Or swinging while looking down would swing down. Just something more with the combat of the light saber that makes you feel like you’re really weilding the light saber. MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YALL.

    Very awesome indeed.

    However, is this the only thing coming in the update? Does it release with any Blast maps?

    This is alot of excitement and time to just have a single game mode release, on essentially one map. Look how boring Extraction became, and that had 2 maps.

    It reminds me of the build up to Grevious, he dropped and people had nothing but the same game still , only now with a waiting line to try and play as this "new" addition.

  • I was hoping it would have been more a Conquest mode on Geonosis.
    What is presented has potential, but I see many ways it can go south in a hurry.

    Maybe I will be more prone to pull away from RDR2 when this comes out. As it is, been loving that game like crazy.

  • So excited! Really.
    Just make it so that I can play. ;)

    It's not a new game mode, this is the galactic assault version of geonosis. But unfortunately it Looks like it won't be available for the other modes.
  • Hero’s and vilians are very dull. No double jump, no flips, 3 attacks, also what about the ogs? Mace windu? Qui gon? Jango? More reinforcements? More guns? It’s almost exactly a year since release, where is everything? Love the concept of geonosis but we should have had this last summer instead of a Han Solo outfit and lando outfit.
  • Why does GA, Blast, Ewok hunt, Extraction always get "fixes" and NEW things, and us Strike players never even get fixed OR new boards like them?????
    The bombs sometimes takes 3 attempts to even set, OR they are "PRE"set when the second round STARTS and can NOT be shut down!
    At times everyone is standing at the package pickup spot, because it don't show where the package IS and/or, don't show who even has it...
    I mean really, you fixed a CHICKEN for GA, but can't do anything for Strike players?
    Are you trying to phase Strike out of the game or something?
    Also you said people was crying about "Heavy's" Turrets, so you made them ussless now...
    You can run right up to them an stop, and not get shot BUT the "Officers" Turret's, will still cut you in half is you even look around a corer at one "really fair"...
    Seeing as no one crys about the Officers turrets, why not take Heavy's "ussless" Turret away and give us the Officers Turret ALSO, sense it's "fair" for the Officers to have???
    Heavy players lost pretty much lost TWO things no one else did!
    Any half way decent player can avoid both, so why take one away and leave the other?
    Or at least take it away, and give us Heavy users something usful...
    Even a Ewok stick or a ROCK TO THROW, would be better than Heavy's useless Turret now...
