It takes a certain type of genius to construct a headline that is both informative and comprised only using words beginning with the letter 'B'. One day perhaps, we'll get there. In the meantime though, some explaining. Star Wars Battlefront is officially out tomorrow! For those without EA Access. Which means millions of Imperial Stormtroopers and Rebels going at it on places like Hoth and Endor. And based on feedback from the recent public beta, some notable changes are coming.
- Spawn Camping! - The bane of any multiplayer shooter, and one that a lot of people spoke up about in relation to the Hoth map during the Star Wars Battlefront beta. Well, message received. As spawn distances and combat areas have both been adjusted to mitigate this issue.
- Walkers Be Trippin' - One of the biggest issues, again in the Hoth map, was the fact that Imperial Walkers were just about built like real-world tanks. They were incredibly hard to take out. Unlike in the movies, where Ewoks managed to take them down with nothing but pebbles and twigs. And so, once again the message was received. With AT-AT and AT-ST walkers getting designated 'weak spots'. Plus, the silly Cycler Rifle has been given bullet drop and slower projectile speed, to make it less of a rail gun that can kill anyone from anywhere.
