Star Wars: Battlefront Won't Use Battlefield's Battlelog System

The game will use a new system built from scratch, not what you know from previous Battlefield games.

Star Wars: Battlefront won't use Battlefield's server browser and social network Battlelog to connect players to online matches, one of the game's developers has confirmed.

Writing on NeoGAF, DICE producer Jesper Nielsen said that while Uprise, the Swedish Electronic Arts studio responsible for Battlelog, is working on Star Wars: Battlefront, the game won't use the same service you've come to know in the recent Battlefield games.

"While Uprise has been doing Battlelog, does that automatically mean that we will do Battlelog for Star Wars Battlefront?" Nielsen asked. "No, it won't. That can only be an assumption, and I can tell you, no, there won't be Battlelog for Star Wars: Battlefront."

Over on Reddit, another DICE producer said that whatever system Uprise is working on for Star Wars: Battlefront, it will be built from scratch.

If you haven't played Battlefield games in recent years, Battlelog is an in-browser portal that allows players to find matches, connect with other players, and configure loadouts across multiple Battlefield titles before launching a game.

Electronic Arts and DICE announced a ton of details about the upcoming first-person shooter Star Wars: Battlefront at the Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim, California yesterday.

I am REALLY worried this is going to be Battlefield: Star Wars. Not pre-ordering this game. I need to see it before I buy it. Not buying Battlefield: Star Wars. Not with what Battlefield has become. Hoping this is truly Battlefont, not Battlefield re-skinned.

Just because it doesn't use the current Battlelog, doesn't mean we'll get something better. It could be a new, from-scratch web-based service called something like Starlog. It could suck equally, greater, or less. But since Uprising is doing it, it is safe to assume this will be another Battlelog-like system.

You don't have a second studio working for what is probably over a year on an in-game menu. It'll be another web-based platform of suck.

@Tekcor: Starlog is exactly what I was gonna say :)

Yean, it's highly likely they will re-use lots of code.

Battlelog is useless. Never worked consistently in BF4 even to this day. And I've never got it to work on Hardline. If it weren't for bfhstats.com I would of never seen any of my stats.

There were aliens in the trailer. Does that mean you can customize your character's race or do you have to buy every one of them standalone?

@han328solo: For the low-low price of $120, you can get the first-day Gungan head in hot pink or zebra stripes... how could you NOT go Premium?!

Remeber when they announced Star Wars 1313? I still remember comments like "f**k 1313 give us BATTLEFRONT NOW" and so on. AND NOW WHAT?! You have your Battlefront and you're throwing shit at devs for cancelling 1313?? Jezz people you can't have all at once

And on the other hand bitching about lack of space combat and Clone Wars?? Correct me if I'm wrong but first BF had no space battles and almost none of the Clone Wars era.

And stop throwing shit at EA. They're not as bad as they were when they rushed ME3 and so on. I think they're actually trying to appease Star Wars fans these days

PLAY THE GAME FIRST THEN JUDGE IT

And after all it's DICE, they're still good devs. They gave us Battlefield 2, 3 etc

But it will evidently force you to log into an Origin account.

@the_real_VIP: It's a given that on PC the game will require origin.

Battlelog is the gateway from Origin. I'm sure you can buy SWBF off of Origin, but that's it. And on the consoles, Origin will be nonexistent.

I rather wait to see where EA is going with this before putting any money down.

I'm worried EA will come up with something even worse than battlelog, if that is even possible

Thank god. The Battlelog system on PC is horrible. I don't want to go to a browser just to play a game.

@m4a5: There are single player and co-op (including offline co-op) missions to play, but no dedicated campaign. The focus of this game, which really shouldn't come as a surprise to anybody, is the online multiplayer.

@Mogan@m4a5: kinda natural from a shooter, nowaday making things online is much simpler in a way and it has more chances of being sold, at least this is my idea due to the fact that many games end up becoming mmo or they add a large side to multiplayer
