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.
Umm calm down? People are excited and it clearly (if you have eyes) looks stunning and better than BF1.

Same boat for me but if I was a huge star wars fan I'd still be excited.
That's the most disappointing for me.
I'd love a great Star Wars game, as It's been way too long since I played one, but this one just doesn't do anything for me.

People running with their lightsabers out makes no sense to me, just click it off surely?

Ive never seen a star wars movie.

Same. Maybe it looks better than the first game but I sure as hell can't tell from this video.

Not a fan of the first one, but hopefully this one will grab me. Looks stunning !!

Are there any gamemodes without heroes ? I don't remember from the 1st game.

I wasn't really impressed by it graphically, its running on PC (you can see mouse controls on the bottom right) so yeah it's going to look good but a lot of stiff animations and what not much like the first BF. Granted this says pre-alpha so we'll see what happens.

Hero only gameplay doesn't really give you the full spectrum but I thought it looked pretty bland. Certainly seems like Heroes are toned down though so thats a good thing.

come to think of it, when did Maul ever block blaster fire in Episode I
That's a weird excuse, just because he didn't do it doesn't mean he can't do it. Lightsabers should be able to deflect shots.



and even if it's just for a few seconds.

Maybe have it on an ability cooldown or that you can only deflect shots being fired from the front. It just seems wrong not to have that in-game.
Exactly.

This footage is a bummer, because it really doesn't show any of the promised improvements. It looks way too much like the last one right now. I hope the EA press event actually make this game look better. Otherwise I can probably cross it off my list.

I really need to see regular gameplay, the first was so embarrassingly shallow that I need some large changes to how the game plays.

Exactly.
As someone mentioned above, the player maybe just didn't know blocking was a thing.

Improvement suggestions to DICE based on my YouTube experience:
- speed the game up by 50%
- add Yakety Sax in the background

HYPE STAR fully operational!

Side note, is it a requirement for people who get early access to a game to suck so bad at actually playing the game?

Looks good and I'm excited considering I sunk 100 hours+ into the last game.

I'm just surprised an immediate swap wasn't done with Boba in favor of Jango. But I guess maybe he'll appear in whatever dlc is planned.

The trailer from weeks ago looks stunning. This, no. Youtube quality is shite as it is and can't be used to judge graphics in a meaningful way, but looking at blurry 720p footage and pretending like it looks vastly better than the predecessor at 1080p on your screen is nothing but hyperbole.

Can't understand how can someone not be impressed by it graphically I can fool people who don't play videogames into thinking this is real life footage almost, or CGI at the least.

Looks great! Initial thoughts:

-Theed looks gorgeous.
-Temuera Morrison doing the voice of Boba and Dee Bradley Baker doing the voice of the Clones is weird.
-Was that Daisy Ridley doing the voice of Rey?
-Rey's theme playing when she enters the game is great.
-God, I miss command posts.

So you collect battle points during the match to spend during the round. Interesting one of the end of round stats is most allies buffed.

That looks really, really good. I hope singleplayer allows for third person as well (it likely will)

While they were only playing as heros, nothing showed me that the game plays any different. May be the mode but no capture points for both teams, no respawn locations, looking real similar to the first 1.

Any word on if the classes actually have roles, or are they just loadouts that slightly do something a little different than 1 another. Any engineer stuff? You know, Battlefront 2 stuff (the original one).

So can Jedi switch lightsabers? Why name them if their only tied to that specific character?
