I'm happy that they are going to have prequel era in the space battles as well.

A bit disappointed that Yoda seems to be using a regular sized Jedi starfighter instead of his cute little custom one.

Kylo Ren Tie Silencer at 5 seconds
Yeah, given one of the segments involving Poe and Millennium Falcon in the last big trailer and that tidbit just now, I think we're getting a post-TFA mission in the campaign akin to what they did for Rogue One/VR mission.

Yo is that Rey vs Kylo part gonna be part of the campaign?? o_O
Nah, pretty sure that one's just for frills.

The spaceship combat was so dull in the last game and felt just awful. Who played it and thought 'what this games needs is space battles'?
Everyone one of you fuckers who kept bitching for it prior to the previous game's launch and long afterwards.

They really had to make Yoda a pilot and not just Anakin, Jedi known to be a brilliant pilot (or Plo Koon with a classic Jedi Starfighter)?

Nearly everyone who played said space controls were improved.

Criterion Games is handling the space combat in BF2. The impressions have been positive so far.

No boarding enemy flagship?
I don't they'd be able to do those seamlessly anymore without compromising scale and detail. It's more likely that it'll be akin to the Death Star DLC where everything is separated through different phases. Although that's just my guess.

I liked the aspect of BF2's space battles where you could infiltrate from within the star destroyers though, and this doesn't look like it has that.

And they probably just spawn you inside of the ships too. I loved having the hangar.

Same here! I loved trying to sly into the other ships and sprint into the different rooms to blow stuff up.

Regardless of how it will play, you have to give them points for nailing the visuals. I hope this time there is a better thought out game underneath the nice paint.

God damn this looks good. I like what I'm hearing about vehicle combat being completely revised by Criterion because in the first game it was obviously nothing to write home about. Player impressions were good from EA Play but I think gamescom will really let us know how flight is.

I really hope we eventually see some campaign footage. What are we at now? Less than 5 seconds of campaign gameplay?

"Across All Eras" = Theed, Kamino, and 4 heroes from the prequel era... I guess.

I feel like we're not getting Prequel era Anakin, Obi-Wan, Plo Koon, etc.

Anakin -- you already got Rey and Luke. It'd be redundant.

Obi-Wan -- Probably later on as free DLC, but again, he could be redundant given the other Jedi.

Plo Kloon --

Towards the end Fighter Squadron was pretty much all I played in Battlefront 1, so I'm definitely interested in whatever they come up with this time.

Still need another TIE Fighter game, though.
