Star Wars: Battlefront reveal trailer reveals no gameplay

On April 19, 2015 by Aaron Meehan


EA and DICE has released the reveal trailer for the third Star Wars: Battlefront game (first one by DICE), but while the reveal creates a lot of hype it fails to reveal any gameplay.

The Star Wars: Battlefront reveal trailer, which premiered at Star Wars Celebration, gives fans an idea of what to expect from the game when it is released on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in November.

The focus of the trailer was showing off the action. To that extent, a large portion of the trailer shows the Empire and Rebels fighting on Endor (from Star Wars: Return of the Jedi) and during the battle we get to see speeders, AT-ATs, AT-STs, and Y-Wings. We also see an X-Wing chasing down a Tie-fighter through a canyon, a quick look at some air and ground battles, and few shots of Darth Vader and Boba Fett.

While everything shown was sweet, there is the nagging sense that the game probably will not look anywhere near, the game’s developers took to twitter to point out that the footage in the trailer was not CGI and it is what the game looks like. While the CGI part is true, as the start of the trailer states, that footage in the trailer is “Game Engine Footage”, and at the end of the trailer, it says “Frostbite game engine footage representative of PlayStation 4. NOT ACTUAL GAMEPLAY”. I’m when we get actual gameplay it may look similar, but I do not think it will look at clean as the footage in the trailer, mainly because I doubt the consoles could handle it.

Apart from the reveal trailer, EA announced a pre-order incentive for Star Wars: Battlefront. Those who pre-order the game will be among the first to experience the Battle of Jakku, the pivotal moment when the New Republic confronted key Imperial holdouts on a remote desert planet on the Outer Rim. Taking place in the aftermath of the Rebel victory in the Battle of Endor, players will experience the events that created the massive, battle-scarred landscape of Jakku shown in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Players who pre-order Star Wars Battlefront can fight the battle one-week early starting on December 1, 2015. All other players will get access to this free content on December 8, 2015.

EA also announced Star Wars: Battlefront will be available for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on November 20th (November 17 in North America).
