Sith’ll Help: Star Wars Battlefront Gets More Servers

I'm feeling less and less enamoured of Star Wars: Battlefront [official site]'s current beta now I'm over the initial 'OMG! AT-ATs!' excitement. It feels so very game-y, and so very dominated by people who, for one reason or another, seem able to pull off endless pixel-precise headshots. The industrial sci-fi fun is being overwhelmed by frustration and the hamster wheel of unlocks - but that…

Has Solo: Star Wars Battlefront Beta Offline Mode

As if millions of 30 and 40-something voices cried out in delight, and were suddenly interested. If you're an ageing nerd who loves a bit of Long Time Ago / Far Far Away but worried that DICE's upcoming original trilogy shootybang game Star Wars: Battlefront [official site] would involve far too much fraternising with terrifyingly skilled and extremely sweary children, rest easy. The offline solo…

That’s No Server Browser, It’s A ‘Skill-Based Matchmaking System’ In Star Wars: Battlefront

Oh dear. There I was, getting all excited about AT-ATs in DICE's Star Warsy Battlefield doohickey, and missed the new disappointing news that the game will not feature server browsers. The game will instead auto-matchmake for you, then drag you off to a server of its choice - meaning you'll have no choice about ping, server capacity, and perhaps not even modes and maps.

Hothtober: Star Wars Battlefront Beta Out Next Month

I've felt so little about Star Wars for so long now, and had so much distance from a fictional universe I threw myself into in my late teens that it no longer feels quite as over-exposed and cynical as it once did. This means I'm starting to find it vaguely appealing again. Nostalgia inexorably returns, God help me. Whether that will be aided or undermined…

Oceans Recede – EA To Release UK Games On Thursday

It is with a mixture of hope and utter despair that I greet the news from EA that they will be aligning UK releases with the rest of Europe, and putting out new games on a Thursday in RPS's mother isle. Hope, because of what it represents in terms of a major publisher pushing back against the control of retailers. Despair because it's still two…

Pew Pew: Star Wars Battlefront’s Fighter Squadron Mode

Twenty players will soar through the skies shouting "Zwap! Zwap!" and making noises like a trumpeting elephant driving a car on wet pavement (true story) in Star Wars Battlefront [official site], backed up by more AI ships, in the newly-announced Fighter Squadron mode.EA teased the mode recently, but at Gamescom this morning gave Fighter Squadron the old reveal-o treatment with a trailer and details and all…

Blasted: Star Wars Battlefront Dogfighting Mode Teased

Star Wars Battlefront's [official site] newly announced team deathmatch Mode goes by the name of Blast and pits 10 against 10 in hot rebel v. empire close-quarter action, according to details coming down from on high by way of Lead Level Designer Dennis Brännvall. It's one of two modes EA's alluded to in the run up to Gamescom - The other is something they're keeping relatively mum…

Star Wars Battlefront Gameplay Trailer Stomps Over Hoth

Update: Now with a co-op trailer too!I don't trust most people's opinions on Star Wars-y things. They're weakened by nostalgia, too keen to remember the time when they were young and beautiful and free. But you can trust me. I barely saw Star Wars as a kid and hold little affection for it. When I say "Gosh-o! Star Wars Battlefront [official site] looks pretty swanky…

Star Wars: Battlefront Will Have Fighter Squadron Mode

Whether in-engine or not, cinematic game trailers offer plenty of hints as to what you'll be able to do in an approaching game. For example, we can assume that if speeders, fighter ships and Darth Vader are in the Star Wars: Battlefront trailer [official site], then the game will let us drive, fly or be those things.And now there's a little confirmation. The first real…

Star Wars: Battlefront Will Aim For Authentic Vwoms

Developer diaries from big studios rarely contain any actual insight into the development process, but they do provide a first-rate glimpse into the marketing pitch. For example, Star Wars: Battlefront [official site] first developer diary is desperate to tell you how authentic its Star Wars experience will be.

Totes A Moon – Star Wars: Battlefront Trailer And Details

I'm not one for Star Wars myself, but the trailer announcing a release date for Star Wars: Battlefront [official site] - November 17th, forcefans - still made me coo and aah at its many exciting explosions. Spacemen and their weird vehicles buzzing around exotic locales look great, yeah. It's got all your favourites: the robocow, crossjets, hoverbikes, the notorious Crumpet Eagle, Johnny Rockets, and even…

Star Wars: Battlefront Awakens Next Month

Oh lordy-lord, there's going to be so much Star Wars this year, isn't there? You won't be able to move for stars here and wars there. It'll be like late 1998/1999 all over again, and we know how that turned out, don't we? Just added to what's a rapidly-bloating list of Forceful things to happen in the long run-up to the film itself is an…

DICE Halting Future Projects Until Battlefield 4 Is Stable

Like Battlefield 3 before it, Battlefield 4's launch hasn't exactly been graceful. If our baseline metric for grace is a lithe, ethereally beautiful swan, then BF4 thus far has been said swan getting squashed into a writhing mass of meaty chunks by a thousand levolutions. Bugs, glitches, crashes - you name it, BF4 has grappled with it on PC and consoles. DICE, unsurprisingly, is aware…

Hoth, The DICE Planet: Star Wars – Battlefront

We know very little about Star Wars: Battlefront but it is in development and perhaps that in itself deserves mention? When EA took exclusive control of the well-tilled license, some observers no doubt feared/expected a procession of games in which Jar-Jar Binks must match three ewok faces in order to unlock new catchphrases. Fear not. DICE are taking a Frostbite of the Battlefront cherry, presumably…
