Star Wars Battlefront will allow fans to live out a wide range of heroic moments and intense battle fantasies of their own – firing blasters, riding speeder bikes and snow speeders, commanding AT-ATs and piloting TIE fighters and the Millennium Falcon. These battles will take place on some of the most iconic planets in the Star Wars universe, including Endor, Hoth, Tatooine and the previously unexplored planet, Sullust. Gamers will be able to play as some of the most memorable characters in the original trilogy such as Darth Vader and Boba Fett. Star Wars Battlefront will feature a wide range of modes tailored for different types of battles, from larger 40-person competitive multiplayer to crafted missions that are played solo, with a friend via split-screen offline or co-operatively online.

Fans who pre-order Star Wars Battlefront will be among the first players 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.

Star Wars Battlefront will be available in North America on November 17 and starting November 19 in Europe for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One™, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft and on Origin™ for PC.

If it looks anywhere near as good as this during gameplay, I'll eat my own bollocks.

The livestream video said it was in engine footage, and I believe these images were taken from it. I doubt it will look like this even at max settings on PC.

Well here is something that just went up now. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XLaoiNUhDeQ
Hopefully they will put it up on their real asset site and Gamersyde can get it up then :)
(Put the EA UK version up now.)

I seriously cannot believe the visuals of the trailer becoming real in the PC version.

Looked just too good.

I expect actual gameplay to get pretty close to the trailer in terms of visuals, I mean BF4 is 1.5 years old and the visuals still blow my mind every time I play it.

Dice is talented as hell

No single player. No game.

I'm all for multiplayer-only titles. Sink those resources into the part of the game that people actually play.

How many times have you played the BF3 and 4 campaigns, just out of curiosity? I vaguely remember playing BF4's, and I wish I hadn't. That was a few hours of my life I won't get back, so if it means they are concentrating on the actual part of the game that people will be buying it for, then that's a good thing. The game might actually turn out to be good on day one.

It might get close. But people get too excited when they hear the term "in-engine" thinking that it's basically how the game will look. Not so. There's virtually little difference to "in-engine" compared to actual offline CGI these days. The only real difference is that they are using the game's rendering engine, albeit with everything maxed to the testicles and about as much high end resources of the game assets they can throw at it, with a side of performance killing post effects that you wont see in the actual game. It all adds up to something that looks the part and still looks like a game.

They should have released those 5 mins of gameplay instead of this cinematic meh.

Agreed. The SP was never GOOD in Battlefront anyway.

Eh, this isn't that much better than BF4 visually. It lokos pretty awesome, but I expect playing on my 980 that this is absolutely what this game will look like.
In engine is more like "PC max settings with special animations."
It's not CGI at all.
Keep in mind we haven't seen a nicely compressedversion of the trailer either, and compression hides flaws. When Gamersyde gets us a nice 1080 version (fingers ccrossed) we will see what it REALLY looks like.

That can't possibly be in game gameplay PS4 graphics.....can it?

Sure it can, pigs also fly and this weekend I will hold a party for Santa and the Easter Bunny. =P

Looks great, maybe wont look like that when it comes out but Frostbite engine is awesome especially when DICE uses it and i think BF4 looks great.

But with time until this releases they will just improve upon it, but yeah, loved the trailer!

Same here dude. Barely play games online lol. Downgrade incoming for sure
Commented on 2015-04-17 21:13:04 In reply to MordeaniisChaos
Yeah, but no. This looks a hell of a lot better than BF4 does visually, especially given the fidelity of the actual models and the effects involved. That, and of course there's the destruction element. The game will not look like this, and I think you've taken what I've said about there being little difference to offline CGI out of context. The workflows are almost entirely the same, and there's no need to worry about performance issues.

Thanks -SD- and Gamersyde for the trailer in high quality!

It looks fantastic at this quality. The Boba Fett scene, for example, almost looks like a scene from one of the recent movies.

And the sound quality is top notch as well, this even made me rewatch it just to hear the sounds again, they all feel so authentic - like if I was watching one of the movies.

In-engine shenanigans aside, this looks very promising. I hope to see some mind-blowing gameplay at E3 2015.

Can I come to the party. I've always respected Santa Clause for giving me free stuff, when I was little. He's a very great, great man.

After seeing the new GTA and the levels it reached, I expect it to be kinda close to this quality
DICE games generally are pretty nice looking too
Commented on 2015-04-17 22:46:17
Will it look like this? Probably not. Will it still be really impressive? Probably so. I'm super excited. You actually can see some aliasing on that scene near the end with the X-wings. I think the visuals may actually get close to this but I can't see them pulling that off on the PS4 without 30fps. Xbone, 30fps sub 1080. Either that or visual downgrade and 60fps. I think the PC will get close to what is in the video. Devs are now able to concentrate on better hardware and leaving old consoles behind. I think next year will show some surprising visuals for the consoles, and therefore the PC to an even greater extent.
Commented on 2015-04-17 23:59:07
I wonder if there will only be 4 maps. 4-5 planets confirmed. But does this mean multiple maps on the planets?
Commented on 2015-04-18 00:09:42
Crysis 1, 2016 reloaded edition?
Looks like it could kill any high end PC even a year after release.
Commented on 2015-04-18 00:26:12
it looks great but as always it's "in engine" which means nothing really. I'm sure it will be downgraded to oblivion. Game looking like this in full hd and 60 fps on consoles... LOL
Commented on 2015-04-18 01:05:41
Frostbyte engine still has ugly water and reflections. The graphics will surely be downgraded and a blue or grey filter will be added, just like all BF games.

    GriftGFX I love my Thinkpad Yoga. Shame they don't really make it anymore. There are like 50 Yogas/Flips and one thinkpad but it's bigger. (2 minutes ago)

    KORNdog @GriftGFX: there are a fair few apps now that do the job well enough for me not to miss stuff on desktop. i'd likely return to desktop to finish anyway. (2 minutes ago)

    GriftGFX Maybe I'll grab a new Mini soon and a 9.7 inch pro after the refresh. Maybe they'll be "cheap" (3 minutes ago)

    KORNdog @GriftGFX: it wouldnt be mine either, but it would be a replacement to my ipad, so i kinda want a bigger upgrade...plus i like more canvas size. (6 minutes ago)

    GriftGFX They're just stupid expensive. $700 for a ten inch ARM tablet is kinda stupid. That Apple tax. (7 minutes ago)

    GriftGFX I'd be satisfied with a 9.7 since it would not be my primary pen input device. I think. (7 minutes ago)
