News Comments > Star Wars Battlefront Offline Update Online
2. Re: Star Wars Battlefront Offline Update Online Jul 21, 2016, 14:07 maddog
 
"Play Walker Assault or Fighter Squadron against AI bots together with a friend in online co-op". Can I play skirmish mode against bots as well? The link above only says "for all players"

But I thought it was sp only on PC and split screen only on console?

This would indicate that I can play with a buddy, on PC, against bots.

Can anyone confirm?

So someone help me out here...this new mode is sp only against bots and can be played in Walker Assault and Fighter Squadron.

Are these game modes not available in "mp" mode where I can simply play with a buddy (say on a local LAN) against bots?

Beyond solitaire, I am not a fan of the mobile gaming experience.

There was the cool AC-130 game where you blasted zombies but haven't played it in years.

Could someone help me out...

Is this game like Left 4 Dead but with aliens?

At the end of each level there is a boss fight?

Can I play solo with AI teammates?

Thanks!

So when I pause the video, the instant action screen says "one or two players"

So then I am guessing that on PC, I cannot play these modes with a buddy or two on my LAN? We have no interest in playing COOP horde mode that every other game already has.

Meh, no buy then. Will go back to Battlefront 2.

My father in law and I were going to start playing this game but now I am worried. We loved Ghost Recon Future Soldier and was hoping for the same style of gameplay.

Does one *need* to go into the dark zone to enjoy and play this game?

We grew tired of the samey gameplay of Warframe and was looking for something new to try.

Any suggestions?

From above:
Later he expects bots to be added to the game.

When did this game become a sci-fi shooter? Those guns and mechs and all are cool but don't fit the setting.

Now if they added an alien invasion ala Independence Day, that would be kinda cool. As it is, I haven't played this game in months and this will probably not entice me to do so.

I enjoy the TW series of games but know nothing of the Warhammer universe.

Would I be lost in this game with all the units etc?

Meh. I am more interested in Ghost Recon Wildlands and the Homefront sequel.

I view the CoD series as reskinned versions of games past. Corridor shooters and on rail vehicle segments. Yawn.

I want variety and options in my gameplay. The blockbuster games just don't do it for me any longer as I get older.

Pysonix is a San Diego company. (my hometown and current residence.)

I hope they continue doing well.

Probably won't throw money at them for this DLC

Boy, are you in for a surprise! :p

Love this game and company, will forever support (even when they don't ask for it).

It's on the taskbar.

After installing Windows 10, the little white and black icon that looks like a paper bag with the MS logo on it is the app store.

Beamer wrote on Apr 8, 2016, 14:45:

I actually like it a ton, really only having two minor complaints.

But I've had it for two months and don't even know where the Windows Store is, let alone have any interest in finding it and finding things on it. I've never seen anything in W10 advertising it or pushing me to it or even linking to it. I literally wouldn't know it exists if not for everyone discussing what a failure it is (those could also be connected.)

I don't really mind Windows 10. It's been okay for me so far.

But I will not be buying games in the Win10 app store. Was burnt by GFWL so no more buying into MS.

Too bad really. Was wanting to play this game.

Thanks! Probably will give this a try anyways. L4D has grown stale on me and need something to fill the zombie killing void.

Funny, I had ALL these games on GameTap when it was in it's prime (and still around).

Sad really, it was an excellent gaming service...when it worked.

No, there is no cockpit view.

Can you play in cockpit mode?

P.S. Origin has no user reviews? What kind of digital distribution platform has no user ratings? Weak.
