First up on this week’s GD LiveCast Nibble is the thorny issue of Star Wars. Or Star Wars Battlefront in particular. Unless you’ve had your head buried in the hot, Tatooine sand for the last few weeks, we’ve had the latest Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens trailer unleashed on us, along with the Star Wars Battlefront beta, which has been played by every man and his Wookie by this point, judging from the 9.5 million downloads.

In the days since, EA and DICE have announced a hefty $50 Premium Pass, promising to provide players with four additional themed map packs containing additional levels, vehicles, weapons and cosmetics. That’s on top of the $60 asking price for the base Star Wars Battlefront, so it’s not a cheap proposition for Star Wars fans. As you’d expect, it proves a contentious issue in this latest GD LiveCast Nibble.

Thanks to those who watched the LiveCast! Remember you can catch it each and every Saturday, and you can see a live countdown to next one on GD’s front page. If you subscribe to the Game Debate Media channel you can keep up to date with all the latest GDLC’s, and receive Nibble breakdowns throughout the week.

As always, if you enjoyed it, please remember to give it a thumbs up and subscribe to our dedicated media YouTube channel if you havent already. The more support we can get, the more neat stuff like this we can do for everyone at GD.

This game is pathetic, not only has it done nothing to improve over Battlefront II but has less content than even the first Battlefront at the get go and the very few rest of it they expect you pay a fortune for, its stupid.

Yes, probably we will see this from EA in the future, but at least they can give us ALL the maps, because in four or five years, when they want to deactivate the servers of the game, people who buy the game will have nothing...

it should go under a lot of fire. 50 dollars for a few extra maps or a game mode or 2 with some weapons is not worth the price of a full game!!!

The only reason this is being brought up now, is because it's Star Wars, which attracts a lot of attention. They have been ripping us off with season passes and premium content for years at the same price. Maybe finally, it will get the attention that it deserves and we can abolish this sort of thing.
