Star Wars: Battlefront Definitely Not A "Reskinned Battlefield"
Yes, DICE makes the Battlefield games. Yes, they're also making Star Wars: Battlefront.
But despite what you might think, the upcoming multiplayer shooter set in the iconic "Star Wars" universe is nothing like Battlefield.
The developer has vehemently contested the accusation that Battlefront is just a "re-skin" of the long-running Battlefield franchise. Here's what DICE assistant producer Jesper Nielsen said on Reddit:
"I simply don't get the Battlefield re-skin comment. From what we've shown, in what way does it look like Battlefield? Are you seeing tanks, lots of destruction, etc? This will not feel like or play like Battlefield. That's never been our intention."
Nielsen went on to say that "to some extent, all shooters are similar." He says it really depends on one's perspective and cites other FPS comparisons. For instance, the avid Counter-Strike player would never say his favorite game is anything like Halo. It's certainly true that there can be dramatic differences between shooters, but is Star Wars: Battlefront really that far removed from Battlefield?
Apparently so. Battlefront is scheduled to arrive on November 17 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
