Well, I saw the following story about EA not going to have SP for Star Wars Battlefront and it just
proves how it has been going around killing the SP that the other game companies had previously done nicely.

Looks like I'm not going to be buying this game either. Sorry EA, no money from me, unless. It says that there is
a Coop mode. Don't know if that means it will have bots or just only humans.

Just tried this and offline MP with bots, full maps, full AI has been added. How times change. Apparently DICE were hit by a lot of people requesting this and now it's been announced that the sequel will have a full campaign. At last !

Some screen shots here: http://blog.michaelzfreeman.org/updated-si...rs-battlefront/

Thanks for the review. I'm going to check it out.


No problem ! Probably the shortest review ever laugh.gif.

This is a win for bot fans. smile.gif

Let's hope this translates into other Dice titles.


Hey, yes, this is what I'm wondering. DICE had to write the pathing and AI routines for Frostbite 3. They will probably use all that in the campaign for the sequel. If the "Skirmish" maps bring more people to the party and sell more games then we may see them getting interested in user made maps, which needs an editor ... but maybe I'm getting ahead of myself there ...

full AI has been added.

so, this is an automatic upgrade? i.e. i install the game, and then it will patch itself online, and these features are part of the patch?

if it's a seamless integral part of the game now, i'm suddenly a lot more interested than i was previously...


Hi Clive. Not sure when it was patched in. There has been a recent patch but that was not AI stuff (not that I can see), It just comes with the full game. There's the "Missions" which is not just a tutorial. It includes "Battles" that which are sort of BF2 like. Tokens replace tickets, but there's no bases and hence no ticket loss. They are collected, first side to 100 wins. "Survival" mode I have not tried yet.

"Skirmish" includes 7 "Walker Assault" maps with both and ground and air game play. "Fighter Squadron" is 6 maps of air only play.

I've not figured out yet if buying the DLC adds the DLC map to these modes.

Forgot to add currently 10.99 on cdkeys.com

Well, I finally got it. It has bots and it seems ok, but just starting out. I've only done a few maps, so maybe I'll warm up to it later. Flying is no fun with the mouse, for me. I guess I need more practice. I much prefer BF2.
Now that I bought it, I found this review on YouTube. Caution, bad language.

I don't think the AI is anything as sophisticated as BF2 AI but they might upgrade for the sequel. But it's interesting. There's the multiplayer-like game modes but Survival is more like a short episode of a single player campaign, plus DICE really nailed the Star Wars atmosphere. I keep feeling like I'm running around in a Star Wars dream I'm having.

According to some sources, we might get offline update for DLC maps too. Very few time passed after last dlc and DICE seems to listen to feedback of their fans.

Have DICE/EA ever made any noises about further bot battles being added ?

So full SP campaign in the next release of this game is gonna be cool. Plus DICE might get carried away with adding AI to MP as well but I'm not going to bet on it.

With a planned full SP campaign, Multiplayer bots are not planned. .. but if there is enough of a demand, there is a possibility it could be added in a patch.
