The multiplayer beta got announced recently and we'll probably see a lot more game footage from the upcoming days. Who else is excited for this game?

Cautiously optimistic. First one was a step back from OG Battlefront II but I'd be lying if I said this Battlefront II isn't looking hype

i'll wait a few days after the game comes out, i've been hearing some troubling things about this game, so i'll just wait.
And after buying the base game of battlefront, (which had about as much content as a free to download demo) I think it's better to be cautious.

Was huge on the original series growing up, but I just can't get into this. My brother recently pruchased Origin Access and I was trying out all of the games available. I honestly don't like EA's games. Maybe I just don't like games at all anymore, I don't know. If anyone plays it let me know how it is!

I'll rent the game at Redbox later this year. If it's great, I'll buy. If not, move onto other games.

It's hard for me not to get excited about any Star Wars game, but I'll keep away from getting this one until I know it's going to be good. Bought the last one too soon and got disappointed. Still, from what I've seen of this, they've improved(and removed) some of the stuff I hated. I still don't get why we can't have vehicles in the map that you have to run to and enter(I've heard claims about everyone getting a chance to use them, not just the first people who run to them or something but I don't buy it). It has worked for every battlefield game, it's not like that needed a change.

And I still really want a ground-to-space gameplay. Not a separate ground map with aerial combat and then space maps.

I've been tempted to pre order this for a long time but yeah, after the last game iam cautious, despite them adding a campaign mode and apparently learning from their mistakes and improving the multi player.

Plus i dont love what they did in the latest Battlefield 1 DLC(crap new maps, bugs/server performance issues, etc) so really anything Dice/EA iam a little put off of. Even thought Battlefield is my favourite game series and i do like Star Wars..

But Player unknown battlegrounds seem way over hyped and not all that fun to me so i probably will end up getting this.

I'm gonna wait for reviews to come out first. I don't trust EA one bit. The space combat looks promising though. It reminds me of when I used to play Rogue Squadron 2 on the GameCube.

EA should have respected the originals a bit instead of taking their exact names. Are they trying to rewrite history here or something?

Sorry EA, but even with a decade worth of technical improvements you still made something inferior to what we played in 2004. And that's really pretty sad.

The campaign will have to be pretty damn incredible to impress me after their last ho-hum release of a game.

So anyone got this game lately? :o

I've been holding it off since the lootbox controversy. Oh and this just happened:

For me they lost that sale with Battlefront 1. That game had too few maps for the price point. So since I overpaid for the first one, I'm either skipping the second one or buy the GOTY edition when it's in the bargain bin (if it still has a player base at that point).

I only care about single player, so I will either Red Box it or wait until it drops under $30

The single-player campaign was pretty decent. Its plot/story is canon to the Star Wars universe.
It tends to take place between "Return of the Jedi" and "The Force Awakens" (if you are a super Star Wars nerd and care about that).
You do see some familiar faces in the campaign, especially closer to the end (no spoilers).

The progression/rank system is probably the only issue I have with Battlefront II.
If you're a platinum hunter like me, the main goal is going to be getting to rank 50 (and yes, this does take some time).
The issue with the progression system is that, while it is easy to get to rank 50 on your account, getting all of your classes their max rank will take quite some time (endless amount of Trooper cards).
It takes some time but that's alright.
I've dealt with more grind in jRPGs and this just feels like an expansion from Overwatch's leveling system.

I should likely get Platinum by the end of the day.
