Star Wars: Battlefront is still the main topic for Star Wars fans and producer Jesper Nielsen is continuing to speak with the Reddit community about the upcoming game.
The first comment is about why the prequel trilogy and the Clone wars were left out of this game.
“Sometimes you have to make choices, and those choices may be hard. We are the ones making the game and have to make hard choices sometimes. One of them was to focus solely on the Original Trilogy. The reasoning I’d rather have someone like Figge comment on.”
He continued saying that Battlefront does not compare to Battlefield in any way.
“I can absolutely guarantee you that it feels nothing like Battlefield. That would be like saying Halo or COD feels like Battlefield. Or the original Battlefront games.”
He also mentioned that the Battle of Jakku DLC will not have any solo player missions.
“Oh yeah! : )
Ya know, all the details like that… just really makes the experience feel so rich.”
He stated that space battles may be available in the future.
“We have and are still discussing space every now and again. We know it has some very exciting prospects. So of course that would be fun to explore! When and if that will happen is impossible for me to say, but no, we’re not saying that space battles are evil and that we will never, ever touch them with a ten-foot pole.”
Some features that may not be in the original game could possibly be added later into a DLC, according to him.
“TBH, by far the majority of ideas and main decision-making is not made by higher-ups, but by the team. And yes, what you see in DLC is sometimes the result of things that you started thinking during the latter part of development.
We have a word in development for constantly adding new features: it’s called feature creep and it’s absolutely paramount to avoid that in the latter stages if you want to build a good game. It’s hard though! But as you will quickly learn as you embark on game development; the truly hard part is finishing and shipping the game.”
He continued the conversation to give his opinion on the replay-ability of the solo player missions.
“What I will say is… I haven’t tried every single mission yet and obviously we’re not done with the game yet, but from what I have played, I think they offer some great experiences and I think for at least some missions, they will have great replayability.”
