Star Wars: Battlefront announced as in the works at DICE

Monday, 10th June 2013 21:16 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

EA labels boss Frank Gibeau came on stage at the EA press event to talk about Frostbite 3 and EA Sports Ignite to show games built on those engines. DICE game shown first. It’s an “all new blockbuster.” It was Battlefront, and a small glimpse was shown. A tease rather. It’s below.

We don’t have platform details as yet, but as EA said its conference was all about next-gen this year, you can probably lock in PS4 and Xbox One at the very least.

The DICE shooter is a successor to an almost legendary series; a third Battlefront game has been rumoured for donkey’s years, and is believed to have been initiated and cancelled at least once. That DICE is now working on the game is a result of a Star Wars licensing deal following Disney’s acquisition of Lucasfilm and LucasArts, which seems to have resulted in the cancellation of numerous in-house projects as well as third-party titles.

    @1 If they can bring the awesome online ability and appeal of the Battlefield series, then it will sure be a winner. It MAY even convince me to get Origin just to play it. /sigh lol

    @3, exactly what I’m thinking, ground vehicles, air vehicles, destruction all on Frostbite 3? Sounds pretty epic.

    Don’t want a Battlefield reskin but something along those lines would be awesome.

    @Lewis
    Nearly every EA game is Timed exclusive, has exclusive DLC or is exclusive to MS’s rigs.

    @12 Yeah, but this isn’t no ordinary EA game, It’s frickin’ Star Wars. It’s without a doubt going to be on PS4 and XBONE.

    I hope so anyway because I’m not getting an XBONE at this rate.
