Star Wars: Battlefront is a bit of light, almost fun – and it certainly can be fun; especially if you’re cycling through its modes. It’s not particularly deep, it’s not especially complex, and its lacking a few modes and maps that would elevate its longevity. And it’s getting more of both, soon.
When it comes to esports, few games dominate the scene like Blizzard’s Starcraft 2 or Counter-Strike, the latter of which regularly encourages fans to cyka my duck if I’ve translated that properly from the Russian. But you don’t really see EA headline the esports scene these days.
EA has a bit of a tarnished history when it comes to acquisitions. It’s bought up some of your favourite game developers, and then unceremoniously shut them down when it felt they were underperforming.
