DICE claims they've managed to get the most or max out the PS4. Yeah, we hear this for almost every game and in every gen...but could DICE finally be on to something given how sexy Battlefront looks?
DICE Explains Why Battlefront Doesn't Have a Campaign
Here's what studio GM Patrick Bach said on why they didn't include space battles right out of the bat (isn't "normal" air battles like in space but with a different background?).
We want players to stay in the same [environment] – we don’t want players to fly off and do something over here. It’s about the Battlefront experience, so we want to keep you in-atmosphere and fighting with the infantry.
[As a studio] we have to start somewhere. You can’t do everything at once. We want to build something that’s great for what it is, and have a holistic view on what we’re trying to achieve, rather than tossing everything in there from the start.
I'd wager, we'll see space battles in one of the expansions, no?
