The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

DICE To "Try New Things" With Star Wars: Battlefront

Posted on Wednesday, June 19 @ 10:30:43 PST by Alex_Osborn


Despite the fact that DICE is easily the most qualified studio to handle theBattlefrontseries, and simply re-skinningBattlefieldwould be enough for many, EA doesn't want its talented team of developers to play it safe, as innovation within this newStar Warstitle is of the utmost importance.

According to Electronic Arts exec Frank Gibeau, DICE is going to push the envelope with this newBattlefrontgame.“Battlefront is a vehicle experience, it’s a character experience. DICE has proven, in how they develop Battlefield, as far as being able to do air, land, sea combat, all the way up to F-18s fighting," he toldIGN.
They’ve been able to demonstrate through the Frostbite tech and through their design capabilities and talent that they can create these huge, epic set-piece wars. That’s kind of the dream of Battlefront. Hoth, the battle of Hoth. You’ve got space, you’ve got the surface, you’ve got infantry, you’ve got AT-ATs. That’s the table stakes that they come in with. They know how to do that. They’re really good at it.

But [DICE isn't] just going to ape what we’ve seen in the past. They’re going to bring their own sensibilities and design ideas. We want to innovate. We want to try new things. From our perspective, it’s capturing that epic, Star Wars, all-out huge scale. That’s what we’ll go after.
