    Question DICE Star Wars : Battlefront (Beta)

    Hi all !
    [Didn' post it in the "Other Timeless Games" as its not officially one at the moment (is it ?) If I'm wrong please replace topic in the right section of forum]

    What are your first impressions about SWBF ?
    I'm not able to play on online servers because they dont show up (no servers" says the game...) but I did the solo mission and !
    -Good sound ambiance
    -Very nice destructions
    -Smooth gameplay
    -AI... well its AI ^^
    -Graphs are very good (didnt play BF4, only beta, but at least same level according to what I can remind)

    My PC rig (i7 2600K 4.4, R9 280X HIS, RAM 16G) is enough for the beta, getting 60 FPS easily on Ultra !


    Never surrender !!

    Just keep clicking on multiplayer, it should eventually find you a server.

    Gameplay wise I don't really like it because of 3rd person view and no aiming down sight but visually this game looks awesome. Also, the sounds are epic.

    3rd person ? When playing solo I can play 1st person (default 1st person is a choice in settings) I'll try on multi as soon as I can connect on a server.
    If 3rd person is not obligatory, its not a problem, on me

    EDIT :
    Eventually succeded in joining a server ! Impressions following :
    -Obviously made for games consoles............ I know its a beta, but you cant even assign a joystick to the air vehicles commands ! In place of joystick, gamepad is set by default !
    -Spawn system needs to change, and if you can only get into a vehicle by reaching the point where the action logo appears (for those who didnt still play SWBF, like in Scavanger mode for BF3, several points fixed on map have a logo above them and when you get on the point, you get the ability to drive a vehicle, air or ground one) except many if not all spawn points are spawnkillable ! And when you reach the vehicle spawn point, you need to take cover (if not, 90% chances youll die) before activating the vehicle, takes 2-3 seconds where youre very exposed under fires ! Dont want your ennemies have vehicles ? Just keep 1 sniper guys shooting at each guy trying to reach the vehicle point. Just played 4 games and each one is the same : taking some vehicles is just impossible as soon as snipers are in position ; in a word the worst vehicle system ever seen (on me). Infantry spawns are very dangerous too, as soon as ennemies reach a certain line of front, there is I'd say 50% chances you get spawnkilled without being able to move or take cover or do anything.
    -Sound is far better than I experienced before (just the solo games this afternoon) very good sound immersion !
    -Of course some bugs like keybindings not working.... but its still beta.
    -Graphs are very good too, animations, explosions, colors, lights, shadows, ground, impacts... Nice work !
    -As said in first post, my rig can easily handle SWBF (for now...) I get almost the same FPS than in BF3 in Ultra settings.
    -Dogfights looks good, but dam' allow us to use joysticks !!!
    -Sadly (but expected) BF3 spammers, baserapers, spawnkillers... are in the place yet...
    -I must admit that 40 players servers are cool, 64 players would be better but unlike I was thinking before testing myself, 40 players is enough. BUT...! Hoth is a (very) little map... and obviously, 40 players on a map that would be 2 times bigger and you'll get tired for searching ennemies... Show me Hoth or Endor bigger maps with 40 players and I'm ready to bet 70$ (yes the price of the game :p) that 40 players is not enough.
    -Healing sustem : after few seconds you get 100% health back instantly.... what ? Is it just for the beta or is it for the final version ? If for final : Ok I know BACTA is much more efficient that actual surgery, but for God sake NO ! Its gameplay-killer first, and not even mentioning realism (if we can think about realism in a SW mode...for BF...) but you get shot in the chest or head or even in arm by a laser blaster, BACTA wont be enough to heal you instantly...! At least use same system as in BF3/4 !

    Thx for reading, hope it'll help you if youre still hesitating in pre-purchasing ; personnally, I used to say I wouldnt, and after testing, I still say the same thing.


    Never surrender !!

    Imagine, I'm fond of playing with jets/air vehicles in any game, and I think I'm not bad at it, so imagine how disappointed I was when I saw they did even not implement Joysticks as possible "keybinding" ??? Tried to use mouse (what I hate to do) and was still the king of the airs (ok, their pilots were very, very bad) but I lost 200% of my pleasure to play.
    Its those little things that made me going away from EA productions, and it will keep going this way...

    It plays like MOH and i think it is just a re skin of that game. All the game play i have had so far is MOH with lasers.. I dont think i will bother either for now..

    Thermal: So last night playing with KrisB, I got straight onto the Saiga, asked KrisB why not use one too, to which he replied "that's Joel's Gun"

    yeah i tried it and its fun but not enough fun for 70e, i'll get back to BF4, tbh i think it runs as fine if u limit players to 40 or 48 like that game does.

    Not sure if this is a free DLC or one map they couldn't finish before the release date. But those sounds
