Star Wars Battlefront: 10 Things to Know After 3 Weeks

The Star Wars Battlefront release has hit the three week mark and there are a number of things current players and prospective buyers need to know about EA’s game for PC, Xbox One, and PS4.

In November, EA and DICE released the latest game in the Star Wars series of video games. Star Wars Battlefront for PS4, Xbox One and PC has received mixed reviews but that hasn’t stopped the game from flying off shelves.

With the Star Wars The Force Awakens release and the holidays just a few short weeks away, interest in Star Wars Battlefront should continue to climb during the month of December.

We’re now three weeks removed from the Star Wars Battlefront release and we continue to see new information emerge for all three versions of the game.

These details include new Star Wars Battlefront problems, issues that EA and DICE are tracking, details about the Battle of Jakku release, and some tempting Battlefront deals that prospective buyers should keep an eye on this month.

This roundup at the three week mark gamers through all of these details and more. These are the things you need to keep in mind as we push away from the Star Wars Battlefront release date and as we get deeper into the month of December.

Battle of Jakku Release Date Reminder

Last week, DICE and EA released the first bit of Star Wars Battlefront DLC. The company's Battle of Jakku DLC is now available for some gamers and it will become available for those that didn't pre-order in a few short hours. 

The Battle of Jakku is free and it comes with new maps and a new game mode called Turning Point. If you pre-ordered the game, you can download it right now to get the maps into your rotation. If you didn't pre-order, you'll get the DLC tomorrow.

EA and DICE will release Battle of Jakku for everyone starting tomorrow. As a reminder, it's a fairly big file so you'll need to make sure that your Xbox One, PC, or PS4 has enough to space to accommodate the DLC and its contents. 

The Battle of Jakku DLC is over 1GB in size.

    @adam mills This isn’t a response to people complaining about a progression system, progression systems don’t give games depth, movement, gunplay, vehicle handling and balance, these are things that can be a deep or shallow experience and they are extremely shallow by any means. it doesn’t matter how much you can “unlock” or “progress” a shallow game is shallow.

    this irks me because I am tired of developers throwing ridiculous amounts of gimmicks and gadgets into games that really upset balance and depth. all players should be on a relatively even playing field with satisfying movement and gun feel, that way the best will always conquer, not some noob hiding away in the corner of a map with thermal optics and a homing missile

      To be honest, I’m okay without a progression system. Team Fortress did just fine without it. I’m okay with the standalone shooter play. I feel like the addition of the Star Cards, skins, traits, and weapons (some say no distinction…I say let me shoot you in the face with a DL-44 and you be the judge) were just fine. What is causing me the most grief is that after a very short amount of time and a free DLC — we’re seeing PC die quickly. Games are hard to find and the forums (http://starwars.ea.com/starwars/battlefront/forums/categories/star-wars-battlefront-pc) are blowing up about it with no response.

      The game is gorgeous and immersion is very easily met. I’d like to NOT see this go poorly. I really do enjoy it. :)
