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:

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™.

That's going to be a shitload of repeated maps!

Let me know when it's under $20!

Is this another lazy, insulting, lackluster excuse for a console port like Fallout 4 and CoD Black Ops 3 were?

4 Maps!

The only mode that looks interesting to me is walker assault and that has 4 maps...

And from what I've seen only two of those look good. (Endor and Hoth) Ugh, if it's on sale on black friday for $40 or less I might buy in. Best buy is having a $10 coupon offered when you buy it right now and I get it at $48 there because of that gamer club thing but I don't feel any urge to run out and get it.

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

It's really a shame DICE locks down their engine from modding. Imagine all of the amazing Battlefield 2 mods that could have been made for Battlefield 4.

This will be under $20 in less than 6 months. Too bad DICE didn't seem to have the same love and dedication that it appeared Free Radical had.

Reviews are being pretty brutal about the lack of content and I found the beta entertaining but only in small doses. Pass.

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.

Yes. Some pretty mediocre, consolized games at the end of the year.

Even with my blind fanboy enthusiasm it isn't hard to see the faults in this game. It's Star Wars game so it will print it's own money but outside of the graphics and presentation this is a major letdown.

Never in my wildest dreams did I think that if a Fallout game and a Star Wars game were released in the same week, I would end up not just playing but preferring the Fallout game. Seriously, I am the poster child of a stereotypical over-the-top Star Wars fanboy. The only positive thing that has come out of my Battlefront purchase is that I will most likely start working on a Star Wars mod for Fallout 4.

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..

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.

Don't start anything you can't finish. Preferably to component atoms.

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.
