Sounds like we might finally be getting a spiritual successor to Rogue Squadron (bout fucking time).

I'm cautious though. If you read up on it, there's rumors this is primarily a multi-player game with a tiny ass single player campaign. That's gonna be some fucking bullshit if its some Call of Duty type multi-player game with a shit ton of microtransactions.

Trailer released today. It's all game engine footage but no actual gameplay. Some details:

-Releases Oct 2 for PS4. Xbox One, and PC (will have VR support for PS4 and PC as well as crossplay for all systems)
-There is both a single player campaign and multi-player mode
-Multi-player is 5v5
-Single player campaign takes place directly after the events of Return of the Jedi as the newly formed New Republic is fighting off the last of the Imperial Remanent. You'll play as characters from both sides. You'll be able to pilot many different types of fighters.
-In multi-player mode, you can earn various types of upgrades both performance and cosmetic based. They claim its all earned meaning there's no loot boxes and microtransactions but we'll see.
-Some cameos in the trailer; Wedge from the Original Trilogy movies and Hera from Star Wars Rebels animated series

I heard battlefront 2 was "repaired" and is a great game now. I had trouble connecting to servers when it was first released, so returned the game. A shame what EA did, but I think they learned their lesson.

non-performance enhanced lootboxes are common it games now (i.e. skins, colors, voicelines etc...). I expect it will have those.

Dude. First time hearing about this game. VR support? Love to see how this feels with the VR on.

So...anybody get it? There's some BF deals where you can get it for 20 bucks. Reviews say its solid but the learning curve is pretty steep
