I've been summoned?
So looks like this is a total rush job, no real way to deny that. It's a paltry amount of content if you compare it to previous releases in both the Battlefront series, and in DICE Sweden's previous releases. I'd be very upset if they don't plan some free DLC to roll out on BEFORE they do their season pass stuff... I think it can be forgiven if that's the case. They obviously got handed this contract too late to have a well fleshed-out development cycle to really just create tons of new content. I mean, everything in this universe is from scratch. So it's a lot of work, and with their timeline, not a lot of time to do it in. I think that much is obvious.
Again, this is all public knowledge, they aren't hiding the fact that they only have 8 maps, 2 heros (is that confirmed? surely there's more?), 4 planets, 4 classes etc etc. they aren't pulling the wool over anyone's eyes. There's no bait-and-switch.
But especially comparing it to the likes of DICE Sweden's last game, BF4, the amount of content is just not in the same league at all. these are just the game modes
for BF4. There's a lot to do in that game.
Although Battlefront's co-op stuff looks mildly interesting, i don't really care for shooting AI but i know alot of people do, so i guess that's something.
*also i will be eternally grateful if anyone can somehow hook me up with alpha access ^_^
