The unveiling of the Star Wars Battlefront 3 teaser trailer at E3 last year jacked up die-hard fans’ heart rates all over the world. It was a beautiful trailer too. Short and sweet, it starts out with the scene of a snowy blizzard, explosions and flashes of lasers.
For all we know it could be any science fiction war game. But then the trailer incrementally added distinct Star Wars elements in, such as the iconic sound of the AT-AT’s laser cannons, the crashing snowspeeder, and then finally the gigantic foot of the AT-AT.
Star Wars Battlefront 3 Trailer, plus LEAKED GAMEPLAY here now!
It was clearly directed mainly towards fans, and the ending was DICE’s was of saying "It’s finally here"!
Star Wars Battlefront 1 & 2 were great games. Unlike most games in which your character is the centre of everything, the Battlefront games put you in the boots of a regular solider in battle, and you are just as useful as everyone else. Your health bar deteriorates quickly just like everyone else.
You feel very vulnerable as a result, and I would imagine that’s what war feels like in real life. I think it’s a great concept because it forces the player to really put in effort into not dying, and the idea of knowing that you don’t have unrealistic endurance like in most games, is exciting.
Battlefront 2 added the space battle feature and the war-hero feature where players get to plays as famous star wars characters such as Luke, Han Solo and Darth Vader. Although I’d say the pacing of the combat was more well timed in Battlefront 1, while Battlefront 2 seemed a little unrealistic and rushed in that sense.
I hope DICE keeps that in mind while producing the upcoming game, because until [Star Wars: Episode VII](movie:711158) comes out, this could be the closest we get!
