EA and Disney in a multi-year agreement for Star Wars games

Want to know about a game? Should we buy that new upcoming release? Post your thoughts on new games and ones you have...so others can know whether to buy it or not! All non-SWBF, non-modding topics should go here.

I agree, DICE being in development of a Star Wars game does feel like a battlefront to me....lets hope they don't catch BF3 contagious "mess every development company up" disease

Well, nice knowing you, DICE.

What do you mean? This sounds like a good thing. :angel:


Every developer that has touched Battlefront 3 has turned to Diet Dr. Pepper. Free Radical went into administration. Rebellion churned out the least-liked game in the entire series, Elite Squadron (word is, they tried to create an actual SWBFIII but somehow failed to do so), and LucasArts got shut down. I do hope DICE has better luck, honest-to-God, I do, because it WOULD be awesome to see SWBFIII on Frostbite, so long as they got SP right (I'm thinking of BF3's somewhat underwhelming campaign - I know they can do better, just look at Bad Company 2).

Oh yeah forgot that battlefront 3 is cursed :runaway:

There's no way Dice will go under, Battlefield 4 will see to that... the only thing to stop Battlefront 3 now is if we get hit by a meteorite. Oops, now I've done it!

This so reminds me of the trainwreck Starsiege Tribes turned into.

Everyone was screaming and begging for a faithfull update to the engine but everyone that tried, tragicly destroyed it, piece by piece till you have the Tribes of today which is a generic free to play class based shooter.

Their community still exists... in the form of 20 guys playing the same 5 maps for decades.

Awesome squad based fps (Better than SWBF in every way except for the graphics), flushed by being sold and changing hands so many times.

That may not apply here. DICE is very capable of producing a good Battlefront game.

Looks like our star wars games will not have online passes...Thank goodness. Reading into this, doesn't directly co-insight with Ea having the rights to make star wars but this decision affects it in a way that will impact future titles inlcuding star wars games.

I freaken hated online passes. :wink: Very smart move EA. If they can just get rid of those yucky microtransactions (Or reasonabley model it diffrently) then I will be a happy camper.

Wow that thing was pretty cool. :wink: Anyway just reading the first paragraph made online passes sound bad. I'm really glad they aren't being used :)

It was a pretty nastey operation. More of a restriction I would think than a feature, didn't do all that much for online(Except enable it), was bascially free money for them.

Something I wish they could also do is release BF1 and BF2 on PSN/Xbox Live Arcade Marketplace and also bring back online gameplay.

Hidden/Spoiler:
It would also be neat if they included jabbas palace for BF1, and the expansion pack for the original Xbox from battlefront 2 , for the arcade version
