While the Internet debates about whether Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer is any good, can we all agree that Star Wars: Battlefront’s TV ad captures the force of our nostalgia and a new hope for a good Star Wars game?
While there’s undoubtedly more epic Star Wars weeks on the calendar (like the actual release weeks for The Force Awakens and Battlefront, and, arguably when we do commentary for the original trilogy on Monday Night Movies via Patreon), this is undoubtedly the best week of the year for Star Wars trailers. While millions of Star Wars fans tune into Monday Night Football for the first time ever, there’s a possibly better Star Wars spot that released today in a (relatively) quieter fashion. Check it out:
Season Pass ickiness aside, we’ve had fun with the brief time we’ve spent with Star Wars Battlefront beta, and the TV spot for the upcoming shooter seems to evoke the same sense of nostalgia that occured when we downed our first highly detailed Stormtrooper, saw Darth Vader for the first time, or even piloted an AT-AT during the ever-so-brief testing period. We’ve been playing Star Wars with our friends for the last 38-plus years, and Star Wars Battlefront may be the best way to do so with those friends who aren’t a bike-ride away anymore.
What do you think of the TV spot? Is it a better live-action ad than Fallout 4? Would you have liked some gameplay footage up in this trailer? Are you going to get Star Wars Battlefront? If so, will you use our Amazon link? Use the force and sound off below!
