After unveiling that amazing trailer yesterday, the Star Wars: Battlefront crew may have alienated some potential customers. IGN spoke with Patrick Back, General Manager at DICE, and Battlefront Producer Craig Mcleod about the game at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim and got some interesting details about the game. First off it was revealed that there would be no prequel trilogy content and that the game would focus entirely on the Original Trilogy era.
Also revealed is there will be no space battles in the game. “It’s not much about space,” Back said. “Most battles are planetary battles, so our focus right now is to make sure we only get that right. The core of Star Wars battles — the Endors, the Hoths, etc.— you want to take that to perfection. You want to do it right."
I have to say I am really disappointed in this news. I was so pumped after seeing the trailer and hearing this was disheartening. A game like Battlefront should represent the entire saga, not just half.
