Star Wars Games Being Re-thought by EA
Good day Battlefrontians. A few little tidbits of information has floated to the table via an interview with EA games label Patric Soderlund (Source: Polygon.com). He has stated that the new Star Wars: Battlefront will be the first in a series of games that aim to rethink how games treat the Star Wars universe. I think we knew most of that anyway, but he also went on to mention:
I must say that Batman: Arkham Asylum was absolutely brilliant. Polygon.com also reported that although Soderlund couldn’t tell them much about the new Star Wars game, he did says that:
This means they also have the unfinished Star Wars: 1313 and what to become Star Wars: First Assault… i.e. Attack Squadron perhaps??? The first images and leaked gameplay of First Assault looked AMAZING!
Some additional comments from Soderlund:
“I didn’t think they wanted to build it,” he said. “I thought they only wanted their own IP. But it’s a really good fit.”
The team working on the new game will be looking at everything as they work on this new title, he said, including the work put into Star Wars: Battlefront 3 before it was cancelled.
“We didn’t toss anything out,” he said. “We’re looking at the old games. We have access to everything that was done during the LucasArts era. But we do want to take our own stance.”
That’s awesome that they are taking in everything and going to make us a kickass game! The old Free Radical version looked pretty good as well but I think DICE can improve that model by 10 fold!
