EA’s Frank Gibeau had a lot to say about Developer Dice’s new Star Wars: Battlefront.
Specifically, Gibeau said “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 then added, “They have 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 have got space, you have got the surface, you have got infantry, you have got AT-ATs. That’s the table stakes that they come in with. They know how to do that. They are really good at it.”
After stressing that the new Star Wars: Battlefront will not be just a re-skinned Battlefield, Gibeau continued, “But [DICE isn’t] just going to ape what we’ve seen in the past. They are 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 will go after.”
