I played a few rounds today at my friend Matt's house in between his shifts. I think it looks fantastic, and we were super giddy the entire time we both played. We're going to get together again here in about an hour and play some more. Usually we play Battlefield, but we both agree this will be taking up any gaming time we both have together once it hits.


I actually only have an X-box 360, but this title, combined with today's $50 price drop, has convinced me. I'm definitely going to be pre-ordering the Battlefront PS4 bundle.

I finally got some time in today. They only have two game modes currently open to us in the beta. The capture the pod mode was kind of fun but seemed to get stale faster then the other larger Hoth assault mode. The graphics are excellent and gameplay is quite good. I'm not too sure about the laser guns they all seem very similar to me at this point. I usually prefer first person but this game you really seem do do well if you change it to 3rd person. I'd say they're off to a good start.

Has anyone pre-ordered or considered purchasing a console since the beta?

Originally I wanted to order the Battlefront PS4 bundle for $350, but I can't get myself to drop that much cash all at once. Plus I don't really game, so my 360 is still doing its job just fine. :lol:

I did pre order before the beta since I do enjoy the BF4 series. The game was fun but replaying the beta maps over and over again I'm not sure how much longevity the game will actually have. I don't believe its a console seller - thats too much to ask of this particular title. It is early yet but I figure we'll see at least 4-5 DLCs to be added if they follow the BF4 model.

In short the game feels simpler then BF4 to cater to the more casual fans but its fun yet how long will it remain entertaining? I wouldn't grab a console solely for this title personally but thats your call to make.

Well, obviously. :P

I've played Battlefield 4 since it's release on the 360, and have been thinking about upgrading anyway. I'd like to play Metal Gear Solid and a few other titles as well, so really I'm just using Battlefront as an opportunity to commit to a new console. :P

Hopefully there's a good enough deal on Black Friday for me to bite on a console bundle, though money would be tight because of a few recent purchases....

Has anyone played it yet? My friend Matt and I played it for about 3 hours yesterday, and I think it's a decent game. I know there's a ton of people complaining about the DLC, but I think it's a great game even without it. Battlefield has always ran just fine for me without any DLCs.

I've played it and I like it. I do agree with some criticism that its a bit light on maps. Although all the different game modes seem to use different parts of the map so even if its the same map it still feels a bit different to me. I find most of the game modes pretty fun - I do like the flight battle but kind of wish it was in outer space with more stuff to fly into like battlecruisers and such rather then just grab all the powerups on the ground.. I played the original Battlefront and in my opinion it was a terrible game - a poor mans Battlefield 2. It suffered from large open maps and not a lot to do were the issues I recall among others.

I find the sound amazing, the weapons all feel pretty good. Overall its a good game - hopefully they do amazing stuff with the DLC! It doesn't displace Battlefield 4 for me though I find that game overall to still be a better game. The biggest issue with DLC is so many people get stuck in the base game that the audience for the DLC no matter how good it is can be smaller and I feel the game only suffers from it. This is more of a problem when they release 4-5 DLCs that the first few DLC's rarely get played only the current DLC and the base game. That's not specific to BF4/SW:BF though.

I'm loving Battlefront, thought more people would be talking about it here. I can't wait for the Scariff DLC to drop this week. I wish they would do a sequel to X-Wing vs Tie Fighter for PC.

I'm on PS4 as CPLCHUD if you want to join forces. I hope I'm getting Battlefield 1 for X-mas. I love the new Scarif missions, just a lot of fun, but haven't been able to play as Jyn Erso yet. Krennic is okay, I just like playing the Death Troopers he spawns.
