Why this has Piqued our Interest
First Gameplay and Survival Mode: First things first - This game looks FANTASTIC. DICE have taken the Frostbite 3 engine used in their Battlefield series and really pushed it to 11. Those visuals, combined with the spot on audio work and terrific use of the original score means that this title screams Star Wars - BIG grins all round whilst watching it. Whilst the demo does seem a bit scripted at times, I feel it does a good job at retaining an organic feel and reminds me of times playing the battlefield series - Whether that’s a good thing or not remains to be seen. Fingers crossed the game has enough differences to still feel fresh after years of playing those titles.
The new title will have a raft of new features all of which are outlined ion the press release below the trailer and Screenshots. The one I would like to pick out though is FIFA Trainer, if anyone has seen my gameplay videos for FIFA they know I need help as do the large number of new players coming to the game every year. If this mode works well then it will be a way to help players learn and hopefully turn a new player into a returning player for future releases in the FIFA franchise.
