EA: Star Wars Battlefront 'May Not Have the Depth' Experienced Gamers Want

EA isn’t stupid. They spent a lot of money to get this license. With this game particularly, they want to hook kids. New movie, new fans. I want to the the Action game they’re working on at… Visceral? And i’m sure there is a 3rd AAA property they have in the works.

Electronic Arts’ CFO Blake Jorgensen has acknowledged that Star Wars Battlefront “may not have the depth” experienced players want in the sci-fi shooter.

Talking at the Nasdaq Investor Conference in Europe, Jorgensen said that the game was intentionally designed to be accessible for those new to first-person shooter games, or kids wanting to play with their parents.

“Star Wars Battlefront is a first-person shooter, but it is [one of] the only teen-rated first-person shooters,” said Jorgensen. "We had designed it to be a much more accessible product to a wide age group.

"So, an 8-year-old could play with his father on the couch, as well as a teenager or 20-year-old could play the game and enjoy it. It is more accessible.

“And for the hardcore, it may not have the depth that they wanted in the game.”

Is that a bad thing? Shouldn’t there be some shooters that are more accessible? Or will that upset Reddit because something was made for the “filthy casuals”?


Sometimes fun>depth

It’s star wars what else do you need. where else you going to go to kick vader’s robotic backside. or see La La playing as slave leia. that’s why these games are called fun.
