More leaks are bound to happen with the Alpha starting tomorrow.


But here the first screen of the Main Menu from the Alpha



Not my picture.

Some people are already looking into the Alpha files:
So from the last few minutes of looking at the files...ect i have been able to see and pull what we will be getting in this closed alpha to test.
First off i see that we will be getting both the Walker Assault on Hoth and the Wave mode (possible) or the Walker Assault mode on Tatooine.
Also for people wondering what the Frontend folder is in the levels folder that is the MainMenu.
Secondly i was able to pull these from the files a list of weapons in the Alpha.
Here is a list of weapons in the closed alpha that i was about get out so far via the weapons.sb file
E11
A280
DH17
DL44
DLT19
DLT20a
EE3(most likely for Boba Fett Only)
Rocket Launcher
SE14c
T21
I will post more as i keep looking at the files.\
EDIT:
It seems there is many many different types of Emotes in the game from when you are low health to general clapping.
It also seems there is a Dawn and Sunny versions of Tatooine making me believe time passes as you play on this map just like BF4 DawnBreaker.
EDIT:
Vehiles so far but i guess we already know
T-65 X-wing
Tie Fighter
Lambda Shuttle
Y-wing
Tie-Bomber(found a link to this in one of the files but don't think it's in the Closed Alpha)
Corellian Corvette
Nebulon B Frigate
ISD (Imperial Star Destroyer)
Mon Calamari Capital Ship
Home One (Admiral Ackbar's Ship)
ATST
AT-AT
Tie Interceptor (found a link to this in one of the files but don't think it's in the Closed Alpha)
74-Z Speeder Bike (found a link to this in one of the files but don't think it's in the Closed Alpha)
I didn't find much of anything else other then the stormtroopers can be customized beyond what we seen in the trailer cause they have some kind of blueprint system but this may not be in the closed alpha.

It's not a server based alpha this is a technical test and has nothing to do with the servers atm well it may have a little but this atm is more or less testing how the game plays on pc.
Plus i found stuff in the files pointing to no server browser but a Matchmaking system just like COD.

Alpha leaked to torrent sites too...

I see things like Admiral Ackbars ship there, but wasn't there news a while ago there'd be no space battles?

What's the point of torrenting it... it isn't like you are going to be able to connect the central server.

But proves the thirst for the title, I guess.

Assets to be used for future DLC, doh.

There could be a way to at least force load that survival mode. That doesnt really need a internet connection.

Background stuff. If you've watched the official videos, there are starships duking it out in the skies.

It's possible those giant ships are just models for background decoration, like the Star Destroyer crashing onto Jakku.

You know I've been seeing this word used a lot around here recently so I have to ask. Da fuck is an emote?

It's a dig at Destiny, which currently has 4 emotes, Dance/Wave/Point/Sit. They are adding a few more in the collector's edition for the next expansion, and those emotes + a few other small things cost $20.

An emote in this sense is the character performing an onscreen action such as waving, fist pumping, dancing etc. when the player hits a corresponding button or key. Some fighting games have taunt emotes, other games such as Destiny have a salute and dancing emotes. My comment was a jab at Bungie's handling of their 3 new emotes which apparently will cost 20 dollars to obtain.

Ah I see thanks. Fuck that.

Specific animations that represent a mood, a taunt or something like that. You could have googled that.

I did, nothing gaming came up. You didn't have to reply to me you know?

This is going to be the biggest game of the year, isn't?
Black Ops > FIFA > Battlefront

I only put FIFA ahead of Battlefront because I'm really not certain on how much draw Star Wars has outside the US. Either way it will sell many, many copies.

edit: and ya'll best not underestimate Fallout. Skyrim has sold over 20 million LTD. Bethesda put on an entire show at E3 more or less dedicated to F4. It's gonna be huge.

Uhm Star Wars is very big in Europe too... You really underestimate that.

And Black Ops 3? lol I havent seen much hype around it. Everyone seems bored of CoD at this point now.

People need to bear in mind they have already warned us the alpha runs like ass and to expect flaky servers.

The BF4/Hardline Alpha's were also missing geometry and textures so people should reign in expectations not freak out when the game runs and looks terrible.

Minimum specs are

CPU: Quad Core CPU e.g. Intel Core i5-2300 @ 2.8 GHz or AMD Phenom II x4 955 @ 3.2 GHz or AMD FX-8350 @ 4.0 GHz
• RAM: 6 GB
• OS: Windows 7 SP1, Windows 8/8.1 (64-bit operating system required)
• Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 or AMD Radeon HD 7970 with 2 GB of Video Memory


Maybe in terms of movies, but not in games.

people are really over hyping Fallout, the last 2 were hardly sales behemoths

I feel very confident he wasn't talking about sales potential.

Well "biggest game of the year" can mean a lot of things so i didn't know he was talking about sales.

Sales i'd agree, everything else i don't.

That's definitely not referring to sales.

I love Metal Gear but Star Wars is way more recognizeable of a franchise and this is launching alongside a new movie and this game has EA's marketing behind it and will have "from the makers of Battlefield" on it. It's going to be huge and I expect it'll be a driving force for people to upgrade this holiday.

Yeah for clarification Baker was not talking about sales.

Adding on to the initial quote, Baker says:

"... Just in terms of everything you can do... Skyrim looks like an afternoon playpen next to it."

There was no Hardline Alpha. The game had too Beta's. And both had no unfinished stuff in it. Besides the a bit worse performance in the first beta, everything was the same until the final game.
