File this one under the “duh” category: After getting its gaming franchise started thanks to Star Wars, LEGO (which has had over 20 licensed property games under its belt since, by way of developers TT Games) returns to the saga to humorously cover the new film with LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens. More details below on what you can expect to be playing and what exclusives you’ll get if you buy it for PlayStation consoles.

Star Wars: Battlefront’s Launch Trailer is Impressive Highlight Reel

Battlefront’s launch trailer captures the one aspect of the game I thoroughly enjoyed in its open beta: it feels, in looks, sounds, and scope, like Star Wars should in video game form. The folks at DICE saved the best for last, laying on the cinematic quality of the game’s graphics in a truly impressive compilation of footage from the upcoming game. Details on the new Heroes and Villains, plus some thoughts (see: hopes) about the DLC plan below. Continue reading “Star Wars: Battlefront’s Launch Trailer is Impressive Highlight Reel”

Star Wars: Battlefront Beta Impressions with Video

Whether it’s the volcanic splashes of Sullust, the icey hallways of Echo Base, or coarse-rough-and-it-gets-everywhere sand of Tatooine, I’m sure we’ve all played a lot of Battlefront over it’s open beta weekend (there was 9 million of us who did!). I have my video impressions for you above (my first video for the site!), while my slightly more detailed thoughts reside below along with some of the latest news and some very entertaining clips other players captured.

Battlefront BetaSet your blasters to kill because the Star Wars Battlefront Beta will be hitting PS4, Xbox One, and PC via Origin on October 8th and will last until October 12th.

I’ll be playing as much as I can on my PS4 under the PSN name BrushYourTeeth, so add me if you want someone to target on the enemy lines or as a buddy on the battlefield. More details regarding what’s available in the Beta, including details on the Companion app, below. Continue reading “Star Wars Battlefront Beta Dated: October 8th – 12th”

A public beta will be coming in October across current-gen consoles and PC, so get your blasters ready to see if it’ll be worth 60 bucks to you in November.

More details for both below. Continue reading “Battlefront Beta, Galaxy of Heroes Mobile Game Details Announced”

Star Wars Battlefront Fighter Squadron and Blast Modes Detailed, Trailer

Fighter Squadron

Two new modes have been revealed for the upcoming Star Wars Battlefront, joining the several already announced, and they are Blast and Fighter Squadron, the latter of which finally has me truly excited for this revival (besides just the gorgeous graphics). I’m so excited I’ll likely end up playing Fighter Squadron so much you’ll either be lucky to see me flying your wing or be deathly afraid of me as I get you in my sights. Probably. Hopefully.

E3 2015 Star Wars News: Battlefront Gameplay Footage, SWTOR Expansion, Disney Infinity 3.0 Sets, and Mobile Games

While it feels just as staged as the demo us Star Wars Celebration Anaheim attendees saw behind-closed-doors, there’s no denying how beautiful Star Wars Battlefront looks, as seen in the above gameplay trailer. But that wasn’t all for Star Wars gaming news, as The Old Republic MMO had a new expansion announced, some more details on the Disney Infinity 3.0 playsets (like where you can get a Boba Fett figure first), and unfortunately another dang mobile card collecting game. The only disappointment was the lack of any news (not even a title!) for Visceral Games’ project. Head below for more video and details.

Battlefront Trailer, Gameplay Demo, Battle of Jakku DLC, and Novel Details (SWCA 2015)

By now it’s pretty likely you’ve already seen the Battlefront trailer, though not as likely as The Force Awakens or Star Wars Rebels Season 2 trailers, but definitely likely. Once you’re done soaking in the lush forest moon of Endor graphics from the trailer, I have details on the behind closed doors gameplay demo on the show floor, the new information released about the game, the Battle of Jakku DLC pack, and details on the tie-in novel Star Wars: Battlefront: Twilight Company.

Star Wars Battlefront Confirmed for Celebration Anaheim

SW Battlefront 2015EA’s developer DICE have announced—through EA’s dedicated Star Wars siteStar Wars Battlefront will be making some type of appearance at Celebration Anaheim in April. With a Holiday 2015 release date still expected, it’s a given we’ll get a glimpse of the first gameplay footage from the game. The details are still forthcoming for what its debut entails, but I’m expecting at least a gameplay heavy trailer, a possible panel, and desperately hoping for a hands-on demo, or at the very least a behind closed doors event for the press. Of course, it’d be even better with a surprise appearance from the other EA developers, Visceral and BioWare, to tease what they’ve been working on for SW too. One can certainly hope.

Star Wars: Battle Pod In Arcades Now!

Announced back in October, Battle Pod has been installed at where ever you can find a local arcade, which for most people nowadays is probably a Dave & Busters. The video above was uploaded by the official Star Wars YouTube channel and it shows off some of the crew behind Battle Pod, the immersive screen technology, and all the levels the Pod contains. Below is a trailer from Bandai Namco showcasing a big chunk of gameplay footage.
