I’ve been playing the Star Wars Battlefront Beta for the past couple of days this week.
I’ve heard many mixed expectations from my friends and the internet on the new Battlefront; some are excited and looking forward to the game, others weary of EA and underwhelmed by the revealed content. I’m somewhere in the middle, I’m excited to play a new Battlefront but also worry about EA’s influence creeping into the title. Having played the beta, I’m relieved to find that the game is at least an enjoyable experience. I don’t know that DICE will be able balance the game perfectly, and the game will likely not be a competitive title like other DICE Battlefield games. It’s nice to see Star Wars in HD with Frostbite, but it’s also strange to play a game that is like Battlefield 4 but with less features.
I will probably get a good experience from the game when the full title is released, and I hope that EA doesn’t go too crazy with DLC content.
