We've all heard the news, the new BF will not only bring in new eras and content, but it will also EXPAND ON THE ORIGINAL GAME!!!!!!!

So, first order of business: Let's KickStart a campaign to raise enough money for the poor and penniless people at EA, so that they may pay for the Tarkin and Ben Licensing Fee.


Don't you want this?

    Nah, Ben would be too similar to Luke and Tarkin would be too similar to an Imperial Officer.

  • CTown, there are no licensing issues for Ben Kenobi and Tarkin. EA has an exclusive contract for Star Wars games from Disney (who own the rights for Star Wars). Not to implement Ben and Tarkin was the decision at DICE.
    In my opinion an childish and illogical decision with the argument that a Jedi is similar to another Jedi.
    We shouldn't collect money for them doing nothing, we better send every dev the Star Wars movies to watch.
    For General Ahsoka Tano!

    Argh, you're right!

    Yet we will see Jakku, the Tatooine wanna be, Finn, the Solo wanna be, Rey, the Luke wannabe, and so many other recycled aspects from the OT. But hey, people will buy whatever has Star Wars written on it, so why not?

    .......PRE-ORDER, NOW!!!!!!!!

    Jakku may be a Tatooine wanna be, and Rey may be a Luke wanna be

    But there are 0 similarities between Finn and Han :D

    I ain't Ctown my friend. This wasn't a post to take seriously hence the /s. Regardless, I still hope that Tarkin or Ben make it only if OT is returning for the 2017 release, because lets face it, they are Iconic. I also hope that more other heroes make it into the base game of the 2017 release.

    Also, 3 heroes/villains per side at the Battlefront 2015 release was simply insulting. I expect for there to be at least 5 heroes/villains per side. Cheers.

    Given by the fact that this game right now has 7 at each side , i except AT least 13 for the imperials , 13 for the rebels , 6 for the First order and 6 for the resistance

    Oh and one of these 38 heroes NEEDS to be this guy , i don't care about your reasonings dice , just do it

    latest?cb=20150812072244

    I don't know if you are being serious or not, but if you are, I generally agree that there should be more heroes/villains. After all, the original hero/villain assets are already made and well-designed (arguably), and simply don't need any graphic updates considering that Battlefront 2015 is arguably the best looking game in the current market. Anyway, I don't pretend to be a developer so I can be dead wrong in any of the things I said, but that is just my 2 cents.

    I think we could work something out for Ben Kenobi. But yeah, Tarkin is going to be a bit off. Mostly because I really don't feel Tarkin should be displayed as a combatant.

    Here we go again......

    Its not about realism. Its about Iconicity. Besides Tarkin IS a military officer, just like Krennic.

    Tarkin was the main villain in ANH, destroyed Aldeeran, destroyed Scarif Base, practically killed Krennic, and almost destroyed Yavin 4.

    This man belongs in Battlefront.
  • If they can add Yavin 4 and Mos Eisley into the game why not Tarkin.
