Star Wars fans seem awfully excitable lately, and it’s not just about Star Wars Battlefront [official site]. Surprisingly, for a fanbase usually so discerning and wary of merchandising, they’re worked up about a new Hollywood movie adaptation of EA’s video game. Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits the silver screen later this month, and fans are going wild even though the only connection is the movie’s inspired by a level that wasn’t even in Battlefront at launch.
That inspiring level, The Battle of Jakku, has sorta arrived, with EA unpleasantly holding it back from people who didn’t pre-order Battlefront. Oh, and a new patch is here.
