I know the new game isn't all that great but it's a heck ton of fun playing with friends online! If anyone wants to send me a friend request ( PSN godzillaVSyou), feel free too. So far it's only me and KaijuCanuck.

To be honest looks like once again a SW Battlefront series isn't getting a third game from the looks of it......

I have it on psn will look for you guys. Its a shame Battlefront II has to suffer from EA's microtranactions because there is a good game here with a lot of potential.

Alright, so now that this has been out for a bit now, is this worth picking up?

Okay, the TIE Defender in the BFX mod for the original/good BFII is a beast. It can rip through a Y-Wing, shields and all, in seconds, and can go very fast and very slow.

Of you have the original BFII on PC, you should definitely get the BFX mod.

I hope the devs plan on adding a few more offline modes, or else this game is not going to last past a hypothetical sequel’s release.

Oh Hedorah, EA making a third battlefront game... scary thought.

The heavy needs stronger guns. I kind of like the DC-15E with explosive rounds, but it still gets out DPSed by just about everything. A lot of people agree with this sentiment too. Hopefully the new guns that they teased will pack more of a punch. Right now I'm using the specialist and I kind of like the snipers they have. They work a bit more like DMRs though, requiring often up to 3 headshots to kill rather than 1 like a traditional sniper rifle.

^ Agreed that the guns lack lethality.

I got the game for XB1 yesterday, and tried a few rounds of Galactic Conquest out earlier today. Seems fun, but doesn't give the same level of "Oh my God, I really do feel like I'm playing a Star Wars movie" immersion that was the highlight of the first game. Or maybe the first game just got me used to it. *shrug* The cross-era heroes are a bit odd, too, but not a deal-breaker. I do like that they brought back the class system, and the level design for Galactic Conquest, replacing generic 'control points' with actual objects like Turbolaser batteries or power sources that must be attacked or defended, is an improvement over past games.

I also got the game for Christmas on PS4, and while I absolutely detest what they're doing, or should I say TRIED to do with the progression system (let's face it, it is basically gambling because there's no guarantee the loot box items will help you in any way, I can certainly attest with the EARNED loot boxes I've gotten thus far as can Angry Joe in his review), I gotta admit, as a game, it's loads of fun. I suck at the free Last Jedi Crait map, though, I can't find, let alone kill anybody with them trenches and smokescreens, man.

And yet, even looking at this strictly as a game, corporate politics notwithstanding, I still can't help but marvel at the loads of wasted potential much like MvCI, no pun intended.

To steal a line from Plinkett, how they mess up Star Wars Battlefront? That's like messing up mash potatoes

Just give us more hero costumes. I would play as a helmetless Darth Vader, red robe palpatine, swole Kylo Ren, and old man Han. :lol:

Agreed, heck me and my brother discuss what could be better about the game, then I ask myself why aren't these things in the game to begin with?

They're revamping the progression system entirely. Microtransactions will be cosmetic only from now on. The system takes effect on March 21st.

When is this game getting ANY new content in the form of new maps, weapons, characters, etc? t's starting to get kind of boring. Heroes vs Villians is the only thing that has lasting replayability. Matchmaking is meh and more often than not you're put up against stacked teams that never get shuffled in the next round, so you just end up losing 10 games in a row against the same team.

This isn't EA Battlefront related but I thought I'd share this for anyone who might be interested:

Spoiler:


This is a scrapped Space Kamino campaign mission, with some changes done to the map (just fixes, the Venator was incomplete). The mission itself was recovered and ported to PC from an PS2 beta version of the game. VO was actually recorded for the mission, though are only present in the PS2 version of the game.

When Pandemic made the decision to scrap the mission, they took the dialogue recorded for the Space Kamino journal and used it for the ground Kamino journal. Luckily, the PS2 beta has the Kamino journal with its original dialogue, which I personally find superior to the version in the final release. It's even voiced by Temuera Morrison!

Spoiler:


Thought this was a pretty cool discovery. RIP Pandemic.

Recent leaks have revealed that EA is planning on giving this game the Battlefront 2015 treatment. In other words, most of the developers have moved on and the game will be killed off by January of next year, if not sooner than that. Bugs will be ignored and left unfixed as they were in the 2015 game. Most of the developers have moved on to new projects. What may be the final season will be released some time after August and will consist of Geonosis and General Grievous as a hero (and potentially the clone skins that have been sitting around in the files since launch). So much for being a live service game, huh?

As for the Solo Season, part one releases this month and it's just Jabba's Palace from SWBF15, skins for Leia and Lando, and a 2v2 Hero Mode. Oh and a no holograms version of the UI.

Here's all of the leaked information:

Spoiler:
This post is meant to put an end to all the wanted roadmap or fake poluting people with their fake posts and rummors. First, they don't have an established 100% roadmap that is putted in stone, they simple adapt and sometimes chnage over the night but I can provide stuff for the next coming months which should be 95% accurate.

They focus on small modes to catch your eyes, earn time to finish Geonosis. Yep you heard me well it is going to be Geonosis. Not going to provide in-depth details, you will have to wait a lot more, maybe 3 more months from now on until it will go live. They want to make it epic and worth the wait. There will be some bad-ass skins for Grivious (some that were already posted here) It is going to have phases (it won't be just an opened space desert as some of you suggested, so probably you already think of what will be to one of the game phases based to the movie). I've noticed geonosis was leaked incredible earlier than now but that guy seemd that he retreat his words and later pretended to be uncertain.

New modes: HVV 2v2, star fighter on arcade, HVV on star fighter, more multiplayer strike maps, some for blast, some racing maps, more skins for heroes (some really 'legendary' ones like the lando skiff and leia boushh costumes)

Devs are eager to share inofs with you but they are not let to do so. The only way they could say something important is by receiving approvalas by prod and others.

Unfortuantelly the sad story that happened with 2015 will repeat again... the devs are moved to another project due to another big title launch (this time an AAA game with at least the high expectation from the last time)

The two studios that worked for the game (criterion and motive) are not working anymore with the game for a few months already , the only studio that is managing it right now is DICE and only DICE. One of the studioes is already with battlefield 2 for a while. No idea why people are still tweekting them with Q&A.

The bugs are usually tried to be avoid with simple "were looking into this" or "aware of the sitaution" wihout a certain fix. Their database is incredible full of unsolved bugs that are since beta stage and are aging well (until they will be probably igorned forever) What you can do about is to make fuss about the bugs you want to be fixed, continue to pressure and pressure, give them a good explaiaong on how that bug happened because their devs are not experienced enough to know where to look in the code for an easy fix (and if they can't deal fast the bug is pushed away for later patches).

Me and my kids are just very frustrated to see it is May and we still don't have a real season. The Crait is more like a small DLC (remember Jakku when it was launched just for the movie with a map and a few mods) same it is with this one. Season 2 will be just a copy of another map from BF2015 (yes you heard me well) + a brand new planet.

Hope that developers will be let to talk again to the players, even with the encrypted ways they did.

I understand some stuff cannot be told, since they are part of the Disney/Lucas agreement but other coming stuff like Geonosis, modes other stuffs could be done much eariler told.

They are collecting a load of poop about you (redditors) what you like and dislike don't like (taking your pulse and your main concerns about the game, which is great) basicaly you are their main source of inspiration, bug fixing, suggestions, complaints, compliments. You'd be surprised to hear that are many other devs (that are not having a badge next to their names) that are getting the top on the front pages with suggestions that are actually under development (a well-written title with other fancy ideas can do a lot)

The devs are not let to write as freely as they'd like to or at least the same way they did only a few months ago. There are profesional live services going on now that are to prevent what happeend with that holocaust at the launch of the game, they can't afford another cataclysm like that so there must be people to temper you guys with a well written verbals/words. Unfortunately they still don't give a direct answer to yoru questions but psotpine you to earn time, forget and do this repeat / over again. (This is a with a faint of manipulation to redirect you in the way they want.)

Next patch will come next week, then probably a month later season 2.

This one might be tough but... no new heroes, no new weapons, no new vehicles, no new star cards. The new map from the new planet will be a small sized one and it will have tunnels (similar to 1st phase from crait)

PS:

This is going to be my first and last message, hope that EA/DICE/Whoever read this will learn this time and not going to keep their secret roadmap for themselves.

This post is made by me and some tips thanks to somebody special. The provided stuff is 1 month old but over 95% accurate.

Geonosis will come much later at the end of the summer, 0 chances to come before August.

If you don't believe a word I am writing let me know below. If I am proven right, come back and apologize.

If there is any lie I said above I just wait a developer to deny or crtisize this message in any aspect whatsoever. I am done, transmision is over. Not going to be seen again. Enjoy!


All of this so far correlates with the information released by EA. Additionally, the leaker provided a screenshot of Boussh days before an official image was released, so this guy is definitely legit.

And with that leak and Star Wars Battlefront 2 (the original one) coming backwards compatiable on Xbox One I have no reason what so ever to go back to the EA SWBF2. Thank you for destroying one of the greatest game franchises of all time EA
