Star Wars Battlefront is one of the most highly-anticipated upcoming games, winning numerous awards at Gamescom (including “Best of Gamescom,” “Most Wanted,” and “Best Online Multiplayer”), but not everyone is sold. The game’s development is being handled by EA DICE, the developer behind the highly successful Battlefield franchise, and many are worried that Battlefront will just feel like a Star Wars-skinned Battlefield game. DICE general manager Patrick Bach recently addressed this, asserting that the two games are as far apart as any two shooters can be.
“I don’t think we have a single system in the game that is the same as in Battlefield. They are as far apart as any shooter would be to any other shooter. I think people will be surprised that it’s even a DICE game in some cases, but I think that the quality of the game and the quality of the audio, the visuals, the emotion it evokes will hopefully feel very DICE.”
