Star Wars: Battlefront First Reveal Trailer Released

Earlier this week, EA released the first reveal trailer for its upcoming game: Star Wars Battlefront. Available for PS4, Xbox One and PC, Battlefront is the much anticipated successor to Pandemic Studio’s previous instalments in the long running series: Star Wars: Battlefront and Star Wars: Battlefront 2. Rest in peace Pandemic, you glorious buggers.

Displaying in-engine footage, the trailer shows off a number of well-loved environments from the Star Wars universe, such as Endor, Hoth and Tatooine, and reveals a couple of fan favourite characters that will hopefully appear, or maybe even be playable in the final release. It should be considered that the trailer is a promotional video and therefore, not necessarily representative of the final product. However, if the flow of combat displayed is anything to go by, we can expect a constant escalation between faction based firefights, air to ground vehicular combat with fan favourites like the AT-AT and Tie Fighter, as well as the mid-fight appearance of ‘hero’ characters like Darth Vader and Boba Fett.

With the big set piece reveals out of the way, the trailer also presents a number of smaller details for fans of the series to get excited over. Keen-eyed viewers will notice a rebel fighter dropping a bubble shield to protect him from getting his face blown off by laser fire, the Jawa sandcrawler that serves as a backdrop for the Tatooine battlefield, or the star destroyer hovering over the battlefield at the beginning of the trailer. Needless to say, the combination of these details are enough to get any Star Wars veteran excited for the series reboot. If that’s not your thing, then there’s a hell of a lot of shootbangs and explodey goodness to tickle your fancies all the same.

No doubt that Dice and EA have a lot to live up to, and the expectations of many a sceptical fan weighing heavily on their shoulders. This reveal has many of us waiting with bated breath, questioning whether the legacy of the Battlefront series can be upheld, or even improved upon in its latest iteration. Here’s hoping, eh?

Hi folks, I'm Tom. I spend most of my time ignoring university deadlines, eating biscuits and making sarcastic remarks about the state of the video games industry. Sometimes I write about these things. Mostly its bad.

Bandai Namco has confirmed that the Tekken Shop in the upcoming Tekken 8 will offer a mix of paid and free content. Premium items will be purchasable using a currency known as Tekken Coins. The Tekken Shop will undergo monthly updates, with the developer emphasizing that the intention is to enhance the competitive fighter with new customization items rather than solely for financial gain. However, there is no reason why it cannot be both.

Revealed in a recent Tekken Talk Live stream, chief producer Yasuda Esports shared some of the upcoming features for the Tekken Shop, seemingly aiming to address any potential criticism proactively. “It has been reported that certain individuals may experience an adverse response upon encountering the term’shop”; however, the focus remains on enhancing the game by introducing new customization options to maintain its appeal.”

According to Mr. Esports, the format will be similar to Tekken 7, and the focus is on improving the game experience rather than just making a profit.

Do you think Bandai Namco is establishing the Tekken Shop to maintain the game’s appeal, generate revenue from microtransactions, or perhaps a combination of both? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below.
