Star Wars Battlefront footage shown behind closed doors

Star Wars Battlefront is being shown to retailers. Now we want EA to show it to us.


Star Wars Battlefront is expected sometime this year, so it’s about time EA gave us a look at DICE’s latest.

It turns out that while press and gamers have had to twiddle their thumbs, EA is showing it to retailers behind closed doors. Normally we’re not supposed to know this sort of thing goes on (ir happens all the time), but cheerfully outspoken EA executive Peter Moore just tweeted the heck out of a recent visit with Gamestop:

What a tease. Peter, if I didn’t love you so fervently I might even be mad.

There’s some small hope that a new Star Wars Battlefront trailer might be released at GDC 2015 this week, but I’m not giving it good odds; I think EA will make us wait for E3. The short PR cycle thing has been working out for triple-A recently, after all.

All we’ve seen of the game so far are a few snippets as part of a feature video shown at E3 2014.

Thanks, StarWarsHQ.
