Good stuff, but because it's EA I'll hold off until the "mega super edition" comes out with all of the downloadable goodies included for free.

Wacky, Half Joking Prediction:

- Game disc comes with Prequel Maps, and Clone/Seperatist characters only
- 1st DLC: ANH Maps
- 2nd DLC: ESB Maps
- 3rd DLC: ROTJ Maps
- 4th DLC: New Weapons
- 5th DLC: Play as Jedi/Sith
- 6th DLC: EWOK/GUNGAN MADNESS
- 7th DLC: Lightsabers/Force Powers
- 8th DLC: Episode VII Sneak Peek Map/Weapon
- 9th DLC: ZOMBIES

No, they would never do that... switch PT and OT around and you could be right.

The first Star Wars game to be excited about since Battlefield II. 

Hopefully it will be available for PC.

Here's hoping for Meebur Gascon mission briefing scenes.  :D

Since it's EA, you won't be able to buy a used version of the game without additional fees. The game will stop working after six or seven year because EA will turn off the servers.

I've got Battlefield 4 pre-ordered with the Playstation 4... but I'm having a hard time getting excited about anything EA or DICE touches, anymore.

Just in time for fans to be disappointed that it doesn't include stuff from the new movie!

I never played the old one. I did pick up Empire at War at a yard sale, have yet to install it.

Don't worry, that will be the first DLC/expansion packet they put out! $$$$$

I haven't played any of the old Battlefronts in forever.  I doubt I pony up for this one, but I'd probably play a free demo. :P

If I have a new system and this has a SP story too ill buy it but SP is key to me...  COD has SP campaigns and I'm looking for at least that level of quality.  Something great like a HALO SP campaign would be incredible but not counting on it. :(

So I got tired of DICE shenanighans and cancelled my PS4 preorder. I am sure the production values will be completely epic for Battlefront III... but the new model in FPS consoling makes me sick. Pay $60 for a half baked singleplayer with awful 'on the rails' corridor shooting at awful AI... pay a Premium fee for the multiplayer experience, say another $50... now you can pay $30 a month for your own server, or get used to being booted from someone elses server because you killed the admin. P.S. there's an exclusive skinpack here or there that will set you back $5. And a soda promotion with, say, twelve codes... that's $1.75 x 12 plus tax.

I'm done with the console experience. For $1,200, I got a decent gaming rig and practically all of my ganes I have aquired for pennies through bundles and sales on Steam. And I don't have to tolerate nearly as many foul mouthed children in lobbies.

Sounds like we might get our first real look at Battlefront Monday afternoon:

Quote
Electronic Arts' E3 press conference will take place this Monday at 12:00pm Pacific on Twitch and Spike TV. Packed day that's going to be -- there's also showings from Microsoft, Ubisoft, and Sony.

Confirmed games for the event include Battlefield Hardline, Dragon Age: Inquisition, The Sims 4, FIFA 15, Madden NFL 15, EA Sports UFC, NHL 15, and "behind-the-scenes" looks at what DICE (Star Wars Battlefront), BioWare (Mass Effect 4), Criterion (?), and Waystone Games (??) have been up to lately. I'd hope and expect to hear a lot more about Mirror's Edge, too.

Official Trailer on YouTube

Not much in terms of actual game footage but I assume we'll see more this time next year.

Thanks for posting this link - I hadn't seen this yet.

Is it safe to assume that the Endor Rebel jumping on the speeder bike at the end was game play footage? Cause if so, that looked great!

I really enjoyed the other console two entries in this series (and even the PSP entries for what they were) - so I am keeping my fingers crossed that this will be epic.
