It seems that EA’s licensing deal with Disney for the Star Wars- franchise will last for the next ten years and covers the whole universe, including the spin- offs.
“It’s a big effort for us, and I don’t think there’s a human being in the world who hasn’t heard of the Star Wars movie coming. And so, [it’s a] great opportunity,” EA CFO Blakr Jorgensen told attendees at the UBS Global Technology Conference in San Francisco, as reported by Gamespot.
“We struck a licensing deal with Disney a few years back that’s almost ten years in length. The game that comes out tomorrow, Star Wars Battlefront, is a traditional first-person style shooter game. Our goal is to make future Battlefront games as well as other style games around the Star Wars franchise, both on mobile as well as console and PC. It’s a huge opportunity for us.”
Star Wars: Battlefront is out today for PC, Xbox One and PS4.
Digital Foundry has spent some time with the final game of the PS4 version of Star Wars Battlefront, and says that the game has improved since the beta
“What we have here is basically a very stable 60fps. It’s not perfect – there are duplicates popping up here and there in select situations – but the overall level of performance is remarkably stable here, a far cry from Battlefield 4,” the site said.
“DICE has achieved a level of performance on par with the likes of Metal Gear Solid 5 and Halo 5.”
The report is based on 30 players battles, full 40- players battles are yet to be tested.
Star Wars: Battlefront will launch on November 17 on PC, Xbox One and PS4.
When Darth Vader accidentally finds himself facing off against the Rebel Fleet on his own, the rebels will learn the true strength of the Dark Side of the Force! Once Vader crashes on a nearby planet, the Rebellion is willing to risk everything for this once-in-a-lifetime chance to take out one of their biggest enemies! Luke! Vader! Leia! Aphra! Han! Chewie! And all manner of Droid, good and evil!
