Star Wars: Battlefront is a Fresh Take on the Franchise, Explains DICE’s Patrick Bach

Patrick Bach, General Manager of DICE, recently sat down with the Official PlayStation Magazine to talk about Star Wars: Battlefront. The sitting saw Bach discuss his vision for the game, as well as why space battles are being left out.

On the latter, Bach stated that DICE wants players to stick to the same environment. Opening up space battles would mean dividing the battlefield, and DICE believes that would go against the “Battlefront experience.”

Bach hopes that fans of the franchise understand from where DICE is coming from. For a reboot, it would have been tremendously messy had DICE opted to simply throw everything in the mix.

For that reason, the team decided to analyze the first two Battlefront games and list their respective pros and cons. Instead of “creating a version of somebody else’s game,” DICE went back to the core idea and started building their game from scratch from that point forward.

We wanted to take a fresh stance on the concept of Battlefront, rather than saying ‘let’s take that feature and call it the same thing’, or ‘let’s remove that feature’. It will just get messy. So you have to see it as a reboot.

Star Wars: Battlefront will majorly stay within the first three movies, until walking the bridge into Episode VII with the Battle of Jakku. Bach said that the game will feature the actual battle, which you won’t have the pleasure of watching in the movies.

Star Wars: Battlefront is scheduled for an official release on November 17 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. That is if everything runs its due course and there are no technical delays.
