Despite the lack of content in base game of the last one, I'm exited! :toot: Hopefully this will have better loading times and more control over which modes you can play on a certain map. Anything but the Battle Station mode in the Death Star DLC was boring for me.

Only CGI so can't really tell what in that trailer will actually be present but hopefully we get some feature bullet points this weekend.

Looks like it could be more like the old games rather than the last one which can only be a good thing.

I didn't realise how badly I wanted to play through a campaign in a modern Star Wars game until seeing that trailer... can't wait!

It's in-engine and, if the trailers for the original are anything to go by, that's what the game will look like.

Also, Darth Maul :wub:

"in engine" is totally meaningless :lol: however I wasn't talking about how it looked, I really don't care about the visuals, we all know what they will look like. I was talking about game content.

Dice arn't working on the single player \o/

So there's a glimmer of hope the campaign will be good, at best decent.

I wonder how it will work, the trailer seems to be showing scenes from all the movies (along side Yoda vs Darth Maul :? )

Unless the story is based around the Tie Fighter pilots you see downed at the beginning. The Tie Fighter pilot is also central on the promotional art.

I wonder if the TIE pilot thing could have something to do with The Last Jedi? I mean, the trailer made no mention of a singleplayer story.

All eras represented! :wub:

My wishlist:

  • Sabotage to become one of the central game modes. It's just so much fun in the Bespin map pack for Battlefront I, and I'd love to see it taken to Coruscant, Jedha City, Theed, Mos Eisley and other places. Substitute Tibanna Gas generators for whatever makes sense in the context - Kyber Crystal Containers, Spice etc.
  • A Phantom Menace map set in the middle of the Boonta Eve Classic Pod Race? Lets EA gauge interest for a new Pod Racer game, and it'd be hectic as strawberry float to have to dodge the incoming pod racers.
  • Playable Y-Wings and TIE Bombers. The Rogue Squadron games let you conduct your own bombing runs on Star Destroyers and enemy ground units, destroying turbolaser batteries, AT-STs etc at your leisure. I want that capability back.
  • Heroes/Villains confined to the eras they lived in, at least in the 'main' multiplayer modes. It'd kinda spoil it for me to see Count Dooku tearing it up on Eadu, or Luke Skywalker taking on Darth Maul. Save that for the Hero Battle mode for all worlds/eras?
  • Jynn Erso should get a complement of bodyguards in the form of her squadmates from Rogue One. It's not very fair that Krennic got his Death Troopers and Jynn got nothing.
  • VR/4K content should not detract from the base game, or its DLC.
  • Slave I should get to use those awesome seismic imploders from AotC.

Jupiter is in your sun sign this week, making it pretty crowded in there, what with Jupiter being the largest of the planets and all.

Map DLC killed the first game for me. Having playlists split between the haves and have-nots just fragmented the player base to the point it was impossible to get games going in some modes.

Ridiculous when you consider the bare-bones experience when the game launched.

Compare that to Uncharted 4 where there have been free maps added monthly (on top of a fleshed out campaign) and it's just another reason why people hate EA.

They'll probably make it free with every purchase of the latest Star Wars movie Blu-ray.

I think with the Titanfall 2 maps being free EA said that's the template they want to follow for future games, and monetise other aspects instead. But this is star wars so maybe they'll charge for these :fp:

Every game I've ever played, whenever paid map DLC or expansion discs came out it killed the online part of the game. Generally the new maps aren't very good anyway, which is why they never made the game in the first place, add to that them being ghost towns pretty quickly. It penalises both the group that paid for the content and the people who didn't.

I dunno, Battlefront's DLC maps seem pretty active to me, and IIRC that's paid content.

Wow new trailer looks great, 3 Studios in this Dice, Motive and Criterion. Dice are doing their usual, Motive are doing the Single player, so that leaves Criterion, hopefully they are making sure the Vehicles do not suck like Battlefront.

Still though single player Empire story? Well that puts me all in

Graphics are gorgeous, you could mistake some parts for the recent Last Jedi trailer, the Millennium Falcon skimming the lake :wub:
