Good News Everyone!

SW BF is first and third person playable!

There's free dlc!

Up to 40 players! No confirmation about bots, I'm guessing not, but there could be a mission based mode... hmm. (Source: The Verge... hmm)

Also there's reveal-age happening at 6.30pm GMT.
...and if you tell that to the kids of today, they wont believe you!

I just posted the same thread! (Deleted it though so it's okay).
Way more excited by this stuff than The Force Awakens.

November 17th release. Confirmed Empire vs Rebels, but I hope they also have Republic vs CIS.

Ha I did not see it sorry. Other news I've read;

No space battles. No prequel content (sorry again, Max, ruining your day).

I have heard of killstreaks or something too, or experience points with kills, my interest is slowly disappearing again.

Thank the gods. Please EA, don't just reskin battlefield with a third person view - PLEASE. I need more space battles, more diverse hero characters, dogfighting, everything that made Battlefield 2 great. I lost more hours than I count in hero only jedi battles against my brother. (spoiler - Darth Maul always wins)

Any links for the reveal?

They have hero characters, and you can pilot the falcon but no prequel stuff, no space battles - lots of dogfighting and vehicles but my guess is battlefield jet style Sad

I don't mind Battlefield, it's just more on the twitch shooter end, I want the battlefront end where it's fun and has bots and you don't have to grind for new gear and you live for longer than 5 seconds.

What's this about it being playable soon on Xbox One? That would literally make my life..
EA, please do not mess this one up.

It isn't funny.

Nice, looks like I'm re-subscribing to EA Access.

Im with you Bezza - that and the lack of a campaign is a real downer to be honest. i don't know why I liked the space battles - I can remember they were always a bit sh*t, firing at the same parts of the same shops over and over again until they blew up. But even so, they broke the pace up fantastically to stop it being just another shooter. Imagine what the next gen could do with it - hero characters appearing in fighters, different ships with different layouts. Alas, not to be.

Hopefully there's like destroyers in atmosphere that you can attack from the ground, I'd love that.

But seriously bots. I need to know it's not online only, it would crush my dreams

ARGH. Right in the Jangos. Now I will just have to settle for crushing Rebel scum.

Despite the lack of space battles, I do believe that there is aerial combat above the planets (in atmosphere).

Hopefully the killstreaks could be the equivalent of the "hero" system from 2. i.e. get a 10 kill streak and you can play as Vader for a spawn.

It's not the same to me without star destroyers to board, run around in, shoot the engines off, etc etc. A few battlefield planes reskinned to look like X wings and tie fighters wouldn't be anywhere near cutting it.

For the record, there is no campaign, but there is what they are calling 'crafted missions' to be played solo. Unless you spend twenty minutes running around an empty map, im presuming that means bots are confirmed.

Interested to see how they balance the heroes online - Give it as a bonus to the winning side and f*ck up the balancing even more as Darth Vader will (Should?) hit double figures alone. Hand it to the losing side and that doesn't seem very practical - Your reward for playing well is you aren't allowed to be a Jedi.

And last edit, promise - I dont think their should be a first person mode at all. Why the hell would you choose the impractical camera angle of third person when the classic viewpoint would presumably improve your FOV? I can see a situation where using third person outside of heroes puts you at a disadvantage competitively and thus no one will use it - Then it feels even more like a Battlefield clone.
