The lights are on
Do you like Star Wars? are you a megafan who feels strongly about a particular movie or character? or are you just into the starfighters and lightsabers?. Whatever category you fall into, you'll find something here.
(In case you missed it)
I won't restate what has already been reported, but here again is the quote from EA Labels President Frank Gibeau:
“Every developer dreams of creating games for the Star Wars universe. Three of our top studios will fulfill that dream, crafting epic adventures for Star Wars fans. DICE and Visceral will produce new games, joining the BioWare team which continues to develop for the Star Wars franchise. The new experiences we create may borrow from films, but the games will be entirely original with all new stories and gameplay.”
Disney co-president John Pleasants:
“This agreement demonstrates our commitment to creating quality game experiences that drive the popularity of the Star Wars franchise for years to come. Collaborating with one of the world’s premier game developers will allow us to bring an amazing portfolio of new Star Wars titles to our fans around the world.”
Nothing has been confirmed yet, but lets examine the studios at work here:
DICE: Battlefront 3 with Frostbite, anyone?
Bioware: Please let it be KOTOR 3.
Visceral: Dead Space + Star Wars = :O
Has your mind exploded yet?
Battlefront 3: Get the exclusive Kashyyyk tropper skin and Kashyyyk map free with the *** pre-order of the game. You need to be online to play Galactic Conquest and Intant Action sold separately.
Bioware- creators of Mass Effect 3 and The Old Republic MMO.
Visceral- okay, but they need to tone it down on the micro transactions.
After playing Mass Effect 3 and the fact that I could not even play coop in Battlefield 3 missions with my brother because of the damn online pass, I would not be interested in a bit on those games, except 1313 and Visceral but that is it, 10 years of wait just so that publisher gets to make those games.
Sorry for the first world, but memories from Sim City and past games have stroke me. Oh, I forgot: Empire at War: with an always on Internet connection requirements.
Oh man...Battlefront 3 running on Frostbite. That would be godlike!
Easy there, Luis! Just remember that nothing's been confirmed yet. Just try to stay positive:)
Sorry about that, but I have some scars because of that publisher.
I made a blog while trying to calm myself down
But I am welcome for the idea of a Imperial Commando done by DICE/Visceral.
And by the way, why did the publisher used the most famous line from Darth Vader when he was trying to kill someone? The is the following: "The Force is strong with this one." And he later said: "I have you now." That does not fills me with confidence.
And Bioware told the gaming community to consider The Old Republic MMO game to be KoTOR 3. I cannot found something solid but it makes sense, the game has tons of Reavan references and features 8 stories. What we MAY expect from Bioware will be something tying up KoTOR and The Phantom Menace, NO MMO PLEASE.
Saying the worst, expecting the Best.
