Star Wars: Battlefront Gameplay Footage Received Standing Ovation At GDC
Only shown to Gamestop though.
So earlier this week GDC was bouncing around, spewing vast amounts of hyperbole across the internet. Well EA were showcasing something behind closed doors recently at GDC, and wouldn’t you know it, there was a fantastic fan reaction according to EA COO Peter Moore.
They were showing the new Star Wars Battlefront, which was first shown at E3 2014. Moore took to Twitter to say, “A GREAT show with my friends/partners @GameStop. Superb ovation for latest gameplay footage on @starwars Battlefront.” The showing consisted of a new trailer that contained some new footage, which is nice. Though nothing official has come out, the rumour mill predicts that the footage will be getting a public showing soon.
Typically, I’m not a fan of “behind closed doors events”, I find them constraining and counter productive to expanding the gaming media environment as a whole. But they do serve a purpose and can help generate some hype. This was a perfect example.
