Default Staw Wars Battlefield II open beta

Just came across this on Fileplanet.

http://www.fileplanet.com/promotions...wbf2_home.aspx


Open beta for subscribers


Just thought I would share, DL'ing the client now, haven't even tried it out yet, but just thought I would share for all the Star Wars geeks like myself

I hope its better tham the first PC version. I actually like it on the X-box but the first PC version was rittled with bugs on the multi-player, so guess we will see how this one pans out

well just got done playing for about an hour. I must say the graphics took a big step forward Much much better. The wookies actually look like wookies now instead of 8ft tall wet carpets like they did before.

And can I say....THEY HAVE BOTHANS!!!!!! Sorry all my old SWG buddies know I have a soft spot for the old doggies

Over all I really like the changes they made, added more classes..including Jedi but have yet to figure out how to play one yet, or seen on in game, but they are there It still feels like battlefront, just looks a whole lot nicer and plays alot better.

Will be nice to see how the Jedi pan out, and would be great to play one..of to the boards for some research.

Thought you might like the inital impressions

Oh I hope they improved the gameplay over the original Battlefront. The die hard StarWars fans deserve a FPS for their genre that doesn't suck.

Cool new stuff I saw after about 20 minutes of play: Some classes can only be unlocked by playing for a while and getting enough points (I'm assuming this is how you get to use the Jedi too) . Also, there's a commander class similar to Paladins in Diablo 2, where allies get benefits from being nearby.

Anyone playing it?

Don't bother. Unless something has changed there are no aussie servers. While the graphics have been slightly updated, the gameplay is essentially the same. The game would be fun I think if anyone else actually played it but for us here in Aus, that doesn't appear to be happening anytime soon ...

Just read in another thread that Internode is setting up a server ... could be worth another look
