Star Wars Battlefront

This week, a beta trial for the new upcoming Star Wars game, Star Wars Battlefront, was released. Since I am a huge fan of the series, I simply had to check it out! The first thing I noticed was that the game looks and sounds beautiful. I was stunned by how the sound designers at EA DICE were able to capture what the movie's sounded like but in a much larger scale. Some sound were obviously taken from the movies and iterated on. On the other hand, some sounds had to be created from scratch and my favorite by far was the thermal imploder. This is a special "grenade" that can be obtained and it really does sound like it is imploding and sucking out all other sounds from the game. There is also a noticeable amount of side-chaining taking place when the implosions occur in order to emphasize the blasts.
