Star Wars Battlefront EA II: some thoughts

I have a really bad feeling about the teaser trailer. Judging from what I've seen...we MUST play Multiplayer to play as Clones and [email protected] NO! The Campaign seems to only cover Episode 6-9...and completly ignores the Prequels...DICE, Criterion or Motive are you kidding us? Unless you somehow give us Instant Action back I doubt that the Game will not be criticised for not having the Clones in singleplayer. I really feel off with playing as Frostbite Engine Clone Troopers in a mode with bad Power-Ups (which should never have been put in Battlefront EA 1 in the first place) and laughable Star Cards. The Multiplayer of Battlefront EA I scarred me for life...while it was my first video game with only Multiplayer, I'll never forget the rage.

So, what do you think about this?

  • I think that you should've waited for the full announcement. May not be playable offline but supposedly hero pickups are gone, star cards are gone, etc. so a lot of the shittiness of the first game is gone.

    Just be thankful there is even prequel content in there.

    Don't think instant action will exist, only campaign and mp. Don't get your hopes up because Dice is very not instant action friendly, at least so far.
  • They have an offline mode with all eras, customization for heroes and troops and "skirmishes against ai" in co-op (only consoles tho) and solo. They also got rid of star cards

    Nice and yet I'm still doubtful things will go as planned lol. Either they'll cut things and put the second half of the game behind the sp paywall like they always do or keep releasing glitched patches and overtweaking things. My trust is forever broken after this Battlefront.

    @TheStalker88, were you EVER a "fan" of these god-forsaken Power-Ups?
  • No not really. They make the game even more random and crazy.

    The Power-Ups should be taken out forever and should be forgotten
  • Agreed lol.

    Honestly BF2 might be alot better than BF1 (unless you really only like the OT era) because of classes, old BF2 type mechanics and offline instant action, but I really doubt EA is ditching the sp thing, especially since everyone's in the trend, even Nintendo. Question is, how complete will the game be when it comes out without the sp content? Will it be like this Battlefront at launch? 75% yes imo.

    Then let's not forget about their abysmally slow patching record and new bugs with every patch... Still excited for Battlefront 2?

    I'm still somewhat excited for the Game. I just hope DICE doesn't butcher it

    Where was all eras in offline mode confirmed?

    I haven't seen anything that specific about it.

    I still hope they don't screw this up too much and If so, then EA has to do something to make Star Wars games no longer mediocre

    Unbeliveable, I finally have a reason to like this game: Free DLC and no Power Ups. Without these Power-Ups I can finally fully enjoy this game

    Biggest worry for me as if now are the microtransactions. People seem to have their heart set out not to buy them, and EA has to make their money somehow.

    I fear it may follow a slippery slope.

    Maybe people might be more likely to buy them if they are actually able to buy the item they want, without having to buy a battlepack with the item you want hidden behind a randomized chance. I think people are not as likely to buy something if they have the chance of wasting their money
