Star Wars Battlefront Released

The official website for Star Wars Battlefront reminds us that today is the release date for the Force-powered action game, saying it is now available for Windows, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. A week-long Twitch stream is underway to celebrate the news, and the Windows edition can be picked up now on Origin Games. Here's the game's official description:
Feel the ominous thud of an AT-AT stomping down on the frozen tundra of Hoth. Zip through the lush forests of Endor on an Imperial speeder bike while dodging incoming blaster fire. Engage in intense dogfights as squadrons of X-wings and TIE fighters fill the skies. Immerse yourself in the epic Star Wars™ battles you’ve always dreamed of and create new heroic moments of your own in Star Wars™ Battlefront™.

I'm not sure something as distinct as Star Wars holds up too well in an MP only game. It's more of a one-shot, have an amazing experience, then move on kinda deal.

A generic army setup like BF works because it's not as repetitive looking or sounding after a few months. If that makes any sense.

clearly you never played jedi knight online.

Reviews are brutal and on point, game is pretty but ultimately a very shallow mess of a game. Also, being a DICE game, it's reported as being plagued with tons of issues, from not being able to connect to servers to BSODs.

Guess not even all the shills and the subreddit bribes could save this.

In a world where the past 5 years of multiplayer shooters have just been Call of Duty and Battlefield sequels, Ive finally found a game that fits what I enjoy playing.

The flow is different than the "im the god of the map" arcade game feeling of CoD, and its no where near as serious and hardcore as many battlefield games can be. Its more of a happy medium for me. Fast paced action that doesnt take itself too seriously. Easy to get into, easy to get out of, and easy to focus on just the fun without much of the rage inducing elements of other games. This is one of the few multiplayer games where I can die 20 times and not care. (because im having fun regardless)

Im not sure why so many people complain about lack of maps. I wonder how many of them play League of Legends for hours on end, that basically has 2 maps. Variety is nice, but in games like this, your primary focus is on competing with other players, not going on some sight seeing tour. (although, the games visuals are spectacular)

Fantastic graphics. Too bad it's multiplayer...ugh. How about a reboot of Knights of the Old Republic using this engine?

This right here, would be full of win

I will say that what they've built in the time frame they had is amazing. EA announced this at E3 2014 and I don't think they got the rights to it very much sooner. It could have been in the works sooner than when they announced it but at best I don't see how they could have had more than a year and a half to make this.

The game is the best you could hope to get in that short a time frame.

It's still not worth $60 but that is only because the market is way to competitive to allow it. With games like Destiny getting "rereleased" this year again, fallout 4, assassin's creed, call of duty, etc all coming out those $60 are fiercely contested and this game doesn't stand up to other games at the same price point.

It will be very interesting to see how long the $60 price point holds. There is enough excitement around the new movie that this game could sell like gang busters between now and the new movies release and even a bit after.

I'll bet EA is going to hold that price high in hopes that fans of the movie will come pouring in as we get closer to release.

Getting it out the door before the movie is 2,400% the driving factor. If they were short on time, someone goofed. This is the biggest game company securing the rights to the biggest franchise property. No room for amature management.

Ya I did the open beta buy me ad. The graphics are indeed gorgeous.

I just didn't like the popcorn nature of the NPC stormtroopers. Weave back and forth while spraying in their general direction and they die.

I dunno, button mashing feels tired and leaves me cold these past few years. I see a placeable turret and want a dozen to put in high areas and sit back and watch, but I only get one off a drop ship.

Admittedly, that IS a huge draw...

If I buy it five months from now, all the nooblets will have gone to yell at each other in something else, and I'd have to endure playing the game without all that joy. Sigh

I'm enjoying it. The gun play is pretty tight and you can actually take more than 3 shots without croaking. The unlocks look pretty cool and I like how the powerups are all over the place (including the ships). The heroes you can become seem a bit OP but maybe I just don't understand how best to defeat them yet (they are heroes, though). Graphics are great, as is the score.

I also like the map design. It feels more like a classic arena map (on a huge scale) where you actually have space to move in and out of without being shotgunned every step (like Destiny) or killed in one burst (like CoD). There are paths and while rushing is not recommended, it is also not insta-death like all other games now-a-days. The game reminds me of Bad Company 2 a bit (which is great).

As for the weapons, it's too early and I haven't played with them enough. The sniper I have is cool, but only 1 shot every 20 seconds or so, something like that. There are other weapons like that but I haven't unlocked them in MP. Pistol are great for upclose dps, blasters come in all types. The perks are going to be fun to mix and match. Inviting a pal to play and splitting perks to compliment one another (and the objective) looks to make things more fun (and survivable).

The Missions seems like horde-mode but are a nice way to get sort of easy offline XP. I think the split screen co-op will be nice on those. I wish they had online matchmaking...maybe they do but all I can see is to invite a friend to them. I've only done the command point and team DM mp modes so much more to explore.

I need a break from Destiny, and I think this is the one that will fill the void until new Destiny content/raid is released. FO4 for when I want to just explore, CoD single player for some popcorn action.

It's a good Q4 for gaming, and there will be plenty to do over the holidays.

Yeah I'm not paying $60 for that. I mean it looks great, but so few maps...

This game has amazing fan service. The look, the feel, the sound is all absolutely flawless. Unfortunately the gameplay and most game modes are a joke. This is an arcade game masquerading as a full fledged AAA shooter. It really, really feels like they severely limited the scope in order to make the hard deadline for the upcoming film. Hopefully the same thing happens as did with BF4. It will be fixed about a year from now. It's a definite pass for now.

Star Wars for my little boy yep...

But Fallout 4 has my interest - 47 hours and I've done like 4 missions maybe - the rest has been walking around being a klepto - I also have 6 power suit frames I've collected while walking about - I think Fallout 4 has found the right mode for people that were "pickup" junkies in previous games - I feel like now I have a reason to walk home over weight...

Oh sorry Star Wars ... um..it's very pretty.. um...music's good.. um... speaking of music I've had to add Fallout 4 radio mods to help with the repeats..wait sorry Star Wars....um..yeah..
