    saw this today .I thought the core of the last game was great but it just felt lacking in content,and for some reason wasn't that much fun after a while

    seems like they are trying to fix that with this game. looks pretty epic right now

    Looks quite pimping. I'll definitely be checking out the beta next weekend. Playing Starfighter Assault with a joystick will take me right back to my youthful glory days of X-Wing vs Tie Fighter. Those minimum/recommended specs on PC are no joke though.

    I'm very excited for it, this looks like everything the first game should have been.

    Looks good, but gonna wait and see on it after the first one was so bare bones (oddly enough, the season pass was recently free on PS4 a week ago and I bought the game digitally on sale a few months back).

    Anyone played the beta yet? The PC version is unbelievably polished and looks amazing. I'm eager to give it a shot when I get off work.

    It's pretty fun on PC, plus it looks amazing. Haven't tried starfighter assault mode yet but galactic assault and infantry only missions are pretty good. Naboo is a huge level with lots of nooks and crannies to hide in. I really like running around with the specialist and using their infiltrator skill or the assault class with their shotgun skill. Grenades are an ability so you can't spam them. If your weapon overheats there's a gears of war style active reload.

    I enjoyed the beta. Galactic assault was kind of a cluster but the strike was really good with a nice, focused objective. I think starfighter assault by itself might convince me to buy though, the flying is super smooth and addictive. The game looks amazing overall and I hope they add SLI support for the full release.

    yeah the fact that they tied the crates into progression and that it's such a grind for heroes really pisses me off. 60k credits each for darth vader and luke...

    apparantly they have dropped them to 15 after the reaciton on reddit
    .
    but still as a father of a 2 year old with limited time what does that make them 10 hours ? I'll probably never even get that far for both

    jackfrags said that it shouldn't take 10hrs if you're doing missions/hitting the milestones where they reward you with credits.

    Now there's people coming out and saying EA hasn't changed anything, which wouldn't surprise me at all

    I'm a realist when it comes to DLC and stuff. I know games are expensive to make. especially games like this .I've always bought map packs and stuuf for games I've liked and not had an issue with it

    but how the fuck do you make a freaking star wars game and hide luke and vader behind a paywall ? yeah you can grind them for free. but not everyone has the luxury of the time to do it.

    see that's the problem they can hide behind the "oh it's not p2w, you can totally grind out the credits and time to unlock everything" and actually cover their ass since it's somewhat true. The system heavily incentivizes people who get impatient and drop money on credits to unlock luke/vader/etc (though whether they're significantly better heroes than say darth maul or rey, i can't comment). If luke and vader are basically the best heroes in game then yeah, it's p2w. If not, then it's just annoying microtransactions/overly grindy gameplay (just like getting bf1 crates is kind of a pain).

    Hats off to any dummy that still purchases the game.

    The industry is so fucking dirty now, it is a shame.

    yeah

    and for this to be a dick move luke and vader don't even need be the best heroes in the game . they could be the worst and people would still want to play as them as they are the most iconic in the whole series.

    pay to win or pay to play. either way its sucks when you are paying full retail price for a game
