Yeah, that trailer looked awesome. Real question is how the actual game will stack up to it...

I loved the first Battlefront, that one looks like it could be just as fun.

I just hope the levels will be as expansive as they look. Also, Lightsaber combat... I hope they don't make it an annoying aspect of the game, or a tacked on afterthought. At least make it decent like in the Jedi Knight games.

All I've heard people say about this game is how many different ways EA WILL fuck up and ruin it. The worst part is that they're right, because it's EA. Do not trust in trailers, especially ones that do not show actual gameplay.


DLC, DLC everywhere!

I dont know about this, I want to like it.. but.. I don't know.

I'll probably wait on it until I see Episode VII and need more SW in my veins.

Well, since my gaming Clan IS a Star Wars Battlefront based Clan, I'm certainly going to get it. I, like Y'all, also have my misgivings about this game, but since they are going to add a new dogfighting mode, it certainly changes things for me about it; as I'm the leader of our Gaming Clans' "Black Squadron". I have to admit I didn't want to like this game with the changes they made from the original two, but it does look amazing.

Okay, N/M, that embed code doesn't work on this website, so try this one.

Fixed the embed.. it DOES work, but you have to use the youtube.com link not the yu.tub.e or whatever.

They need to add space combat already.

I want a true Tie Fighter sequel.

Thank you for pointing that out to me. And on the opinion of a new Tiefighter, I strongly agree. It's my favorite Star Wars game hands down. That game is why I'm a die hard Imperial, and member of the 501st.

Tiefighter is listed in the top ten video games ever made. They made a collectors version with updated graphics, but they never made a sequel for it; and with an awesome back story like this: Maarek Stele - Wookieepedia, the Star Wars Wiki , I'm really baffled by that. He's such an amazing loyal Imperial pilot. I loved that the game took such a twist in the Star Wars where the rebels are the "bad guys".

Quote:
Why do we hate the Rebellion?"
"They're criminals. They're trying to disrupt the peace and order of the Empire. Little better than pirates."
"I don't know. I mean, before I joined up, I heard a lot of talk."
"We all heard that talk. But that's all it is. I've seen what the Empire stands for. We bring peace to warring worlds. We bring order and prosperity for everyone."
―Xeal and Maarek Stele

Yeah I loved TIE Fighter (And X-Wing, and X-Wing vs TIE Fighter!) but the story for TIE Fighter was fantastic, especially at the time.

Would love to see a new one with modern graphics.. set between the trilogies maybe.

Awwww yeah, the Beta was great, until I couldn't get into any match after 10:30. I will say the Imperials have a major advantage starting weapon-wise over the Rebels. My K/D spread was markedly different depending on what side I was on.

But it's fun? I was really bummed there isn't a single player.. I will probably get it after I see the new movie. Halo 5 will probably take up most of my November.

Yeah it's fun, you should give the beta a shot, I'll be on this weekend. And yeah, Halo 5 is going to take up a large amount of my time. Shit, I took my week long staycation on its release week.

I couldn't get past the loading screen whenever I chose which map to play.
It was in a constant loading loop.

Well finally got on.
I had to repair my install.
There needs to be an off button for the heroes.
I hate the way they made the vehicles accessible.
The map seems useless to me. Sure it tells you where the enemy is. Yet I have no idea where I am terrain-wise. It is more or less just radar.
The random spawn points annoy me.
There are no squads. You only get a "partner". LAME! At least you can use his load-out.
No classes. I see this going badly. Everyone will just pick the overpowered weapons now.

Yeah, supposedly it's more casual like COD.

I wouldn't call COD casual, but Battlefront definitely feels more casual. I'm ok with that though, it'll be a great game to hop on with some of my less hardcore gamer friends and just dick around in. I've enjoyed the demo so far, once you're in a match the gameplay is rock solid, though I definitely hope they do some balancing, some of the equipment is significantly over powered, like the sniper rifle.

I played Yesterday thanks to my cousin
I am no hardcore gamer
IMO it was really fun ! Strange choices are made by the makers like how to pilot a vehicle but it is really fun to run surrounded by blasters' shots

That is why they need a sniper class.

To be fair, there really isn't a class system, that's kind of the issue.
