Star Wars Battlefront 2 - Leaked

GIFs in the article, the trailer itself is vanishing from most sources online.

And unsurprisingly people start going nuts over it. I swear, it doesn't matter how poorly developed a game is or any previous installment in the franchise was, if it's Star Wars people fall for it hook line and sinker every time. It's just a licence to print money.

"Oh I won't be buying Battlefront 2, not after how badly they handled the original."
"The sequel has Darth Maul."
"Just take my debit card!"

Yeah. I didn't buy into the first one and glad I didn't as it seemed to take a long time to get right and get content in. Ill wait for reviews on this one also and maybe get it later.

Watched Ep VII last night so I'm in the perfect mindset to start throwing money at EA.
This looks pretty cool.

I mean, I can't imagine it's going to be much better than a typical Battlefield campaign, but yeah.

Also: It looks like 'Star Wars: Battlefront II' will ditch the Season Pass
I could get behind this. :o

The last campaign by them in bf1 was better than most games I've played this year. Try it if you haven't already.

Good news on the season pass thing completely.

What EA are forgetting is that for many the damage has already been done. I am a huge fan of the Battlefront series but I never bought the game even when it dropped down to as low as just £9 because it just isn't the Battlefront game I wanted. They got greedy with the way they slithered out the extra content that should have already been included in the main game and the player base shrank and shrank and shrank some more and by the end of 2016 it had dropped down to just 2k while the PS4 still enjoys numbers above 11k. Dividing the player base so much between vanilla and season pass hurt the game badly.

Go back and play Battlefront or Battlefront II. That's what a true Battlefront game should be and I for one will not buy into it once more until it is.

Oh right!
I completely forgot Battlefield 1 was a game. #-o

Good thing they're taking the Titanfall 2 approach, at least. We've yet to see what the rest of the game looks like.

No season pass would be a great movie if it's true. Fragmenting communities with ludicrously overpriced maps has always been the main thing that has put me off most EA games.

I agree. As much as I love bf1 it's annoying to see this pay gating affecting the game.

Has there ever been a SW single player game other than Tie Fighter or Clone Trooper thingy were you play as the Empire? It's a good move I think.

Strictly speaking Republic Commando had you playing for, well, the Republic, who at that time were considered the good guys. I think with the exception of TIE Fighter, every game that started with you playing a bad guy had you playing for the good guys by the end. I hope that doesn't happen here as it gets a bit dull.

Battlefront 2 (the first one, that is... the first second game, damn naming conventions) had a pretty good campaign where you played as the 501st Republican clone unit, so half way through the campaign you technically become the bad guys when they swap to the Empire.

I hope the single player is decent. Bot skirmishes and the galactic conquest campaign was actually quite a solid part of the original games and DICE overlooked that massively with their barebones first effort.

I watch a youtuber called jackfrags now and then. He did a lot of great coverage and guides on BF1. He devoted an entire episode talking about how badly pay gating and season passing were affecting the game. I really hope that when they release the next BF game that it goes the same as this new battlefront and ditches the season pass.

Split screen co-op coming to consoles but not PC. EA is why we cant have nice things.
