Looks like Battlefront. Can anyone explain to me what in this gameplay looks different from the first one?

Don't get me wrong, looks good, very beautiful but trying to start keeping my hype in check, burned too many times.

Somebody's in trouble lol

It looks like heroes aren't as powerful (thank god). They can still take some hits but they were just unstoppable in the first game. Took me out of the experience.

Damn the sound effects are banana's, lighting is amazing and the sabre marks on the pillars is just crazy.

The gameplay was fine. It was the lack of variety, customisation and barebones progression system that made it boring

Graphically speaking it looks a ton better than the first (at least from what I remember). The hero movements also seem to be more fluid.

Do you need to pre-order to play the beta?

Doubt it, i think preordering prob gets you 1-2 day head start on the beta.

Can't wait to play this on Scorpio
Yuppers!

Lighting looks really good, even from the footage shown. Need to see some more open maps to judge. Also, not a huge fan of Hero modes but I guess that's their thing.

Sign ywah. It's beautiful but I really really didn't like the actual gameplay of the first one.

The graphics are gorgeous but the gameplay looks so damn bland.
Was hoping they would build upon the first game but it seems not.
The first one didn't grab me for this reason, so this one will get a pass as well. Shame.

Looks amazing but so did Battlefront. Definitely holding off at launch if it's anything like Battlefront 1. That's the one game I've gotten at launch in the past few years and played for maybe a couple hours, admired the audio/visual aspects and had no real desire to play after that. Probably burned out by playing the Beta a bunch and the gameplay feeling pretty bare bones.

Same boat for me but if I was a huge star wars fan I'd still be excited.

You are all crazy. Are you watching this on your cell phone?

This is the first game running on PC.

And you compare that to a blurry 720p video (actual resolution is far below that) and make statements about graphics improvements? Really? BF2 will look stunning, no doubt about that, but this video is proof of the opposite if anything.

Look for me on the local news, I'll be the guy arrested for trying to burn down a Nintendo exec's house.

Looks pretty different to Battlefront 1 actually with all the leaping and different abilities.

Can already see there needs to be punishment for people hanging out in menus waiting to spawn as their precious heroes.
