I'll wait for gameplay. It's respawn so I trust they'll be able to deliver in that department, which in the end is what's most important.

But holy shit, as far as game reveals go that was fucking underwhelming.
- No gameplay
- Nothing interesting in terms of concept, story, setting, or art direction
- Main character looks and sounds like he was taken straight out of some generic young adult movie adaptation (and no, not because he is a white male)

I guess creating our own character in a third person, Star Wars game is so 2003

I'm sorry but isn't this literally the plot of Star Wars: The Force Awakens but 25 years earlier and with a dude?

The empire is gone in TFA. This is the empire in their height. And there are likely more remnants of the Jedi since order 66 just happened.

Have to agree the trailer isn't massively inspiring. Need to see gameplay. I am excited for this though. Could be fantastic. I have so many fond memories of single player Star Wars games.

  • Third-person, action adventure, story-driven.
  • Takes place after Order 66, playing as a Padawan called Cal who survives the event and is on the run.
  • No microtransactions.
  • Single player only.
  • Being developed in Unreal Engine 4 instead of the modified Source Engine used in Apex and Titanfall.
  • Stig Asmussen (Director of God of War 3) is leading the team as game director.
  • Chris Avellone (KotOR2, Fallout 2, Fallout: New Vegas) did some story work, story/character reviews, and wrote cinematic scripts for the game.
  • Jason de Heras is the Lead Combat Designer (Senior Combat Designer on God of War 3 and Ascension).
  • Canon to the Star Wars universe.
  • Will be like "Force Unleashed without the Mountain Dew qualities".
  • Game has a "dark" tone and vibe to it.
  • Narrative lead is Aaaron Contreras who was the lead narrative designer on Mafia III and narrative designer on Far Cry 3.

I'm not a big fan of EA but hell, if they are truly backing an SP only game for once and it actually turns out good I'm going to support it. Hope the gameplay delivers. Looks decent enough so far.

Does anyone think that was in-engine? Looked good enough and not quite good enough not to be.

The trailer should be this post with Star Wars music in the background. Way more informative.

It was just nice to finally see a single player Star Wars game. Also, I won't get into it details, but bravo to Neogaf for being civil and not insane like some other forums regarding the trailer.

Can I shoot people in this, or is it neon blue penis waggling?

I like Respawn’s gunplay.

The trailer was meh but having Respawn in mind makes me optimistic. Waiting for the gameplay footage for now

Seems like Jedi Knight 3 in spirit, hope it's good, the only thing hinting at gameplay was the guy's cut-scene wallrun, maybe you can do that stuff as in Titanfall 2.

I guess it's gonna be third person, I hope the combat and overall control feels really really good, the studio's only really done first person/shooting well.

The graphics in the trailer take a big hit after 1:15, I guess after that point it's mostly in-engine stuff while before that maybe not quite the same.

Hope this is good cos the VR game didn't look promising, like a SW themed Life is Strange type thing with puzzles and dodgy combat.

With the studio behind it I was hoping they'd make it like a new Dark Forces (1) or Republic Commando. We'll see how they do.

Everyone knows this game was rushed. Guarntee it will have like 4-6hrs of content in single player. Will be a boring game.

Really glad to see nobody trashing the game because of the skin colour of the protagonist.

The reveal was pretty crap but I do think it'll be a good game, I expected an FPS so I was pleasantly surprised.

Looks okay, but going to give it bonus hype points as it's got the other forum fuming that they didn't pick a female or black lead character.

The only thing I can feel and see are the tears of the shareholders / shares which will fall.

EA totally facked up with all their SW Games since the Disney Deal.

I can’t believe this happened.
I knew EA is dumb... but this extreme?

1313 I miss you!

The 5 seconds of the Amy Hennig SW Project was more impressive than this.

No it is an Action game. Lie the Force Unleashed with a focus on the story and characters. There is a reason they hired the GOW3 game designer^^

One really creepy thing I do is just repeatedly shit on GAF while sarcastically calling it a "top tier gaming forum" so feel free to report me if I keep doing this.

Some of are trying way too hard, need to relax seems like you’re trying to be cool on the Internet.

The trailer looks alright I feel it would’ve looked a lot better if it was made with the frostbite engine

You guys are so era obsessed you can't discuss anything without referring to them. Every time I come back to talk games after a hiatus some of you post like you're actively trying to get me to gtfo again.

Nice trailer, and the combination of pedigrees of the people involved here makes it a fair guess that the gameplay will also deliver.

Respawn has more than earned a positive outlook, and I enjoyed the last Stig Asmussen game I played, so any doubt or cynicism just feels forced at this point.

Didnt care for GoW3 or any of respawn's previous games so I expect it to play like ass. I'm also bored of order 66 survivor stories too.

That said, it doesnt look as terrible as I expected.

All joking aside, it looks orders of magnitude better than... ugh... "The Rise of Skywalker"... Jesus, what an awful title.

Looks decent but to be honest I'm more hyped about this summary than what was shown :)

  • Third-person, action adventure, story-driven.
  • Takes place after Order 66, playing as a Padawan called Cal who survives the event and is on the run.
  • No microtransactions.
  • Single player only.
  • Being developed in Unreal Engine 4 instead of the modified Source Engine used in Apex and Titanfall.
  • Stig Asmussen (Director of God of War 3) is leading the team as game director.
  • Chris Avellone (KotOR2, Fallout 2, Fallout: New Vegas) did some story work, story/character reviews, and wrote cinematic scripts for the game.
  • Jason de Heras is the Lead Combat Designer (Senior Combat Designer on God of War 3 and Ascension).
  • Canon to the Star Wars universe.
  • Will be like "Force Unleashed without the Mountain Dew qualities".
  • Game has a "dark" tone and vibe to it.
  • Narrative lead is Aaaron Contreras who was the lead narrative designer on Mafia III and narrative designer on Far Cry 3.
Also a moment of gameplay would be nice.

Best part about the trailer was having a release date. I'll wait for some gameplay before I decide but with what I know about it so far such as dev's, no microtransactions, setting and more has me interested but not yet ready to jump.
Trailer didn't make me any more excited sadly.

It seems to have quite an unusual style, sometimes looks as if it's going for realism and other times looks a bit cartoony.
That's a good sign in my book. Means they will likely go for more fantasy and fantastical things, instead of trying to be too precious about their realism like Naughty Dog. Makes me think the gameplay might be more interesting.

It says you get lots of force powers and have to really dodge and parry, so that's good.

You guys are so era obsessed you can't discuss anything without referring to them. Every time I come back to talk games after a hiatus some of you post like you're actively trying to get me to gtfo again.
Well the good thing about this site is that no topics are off limits like that retarded site. Some people dwell on Era too much. Just let them and ignore them. Lots of other people are just talking about the game. And this way everyone can post what they want.

We just had a nice topic free of bs and then it was filled with oh woo so glad nobody mentions race here like that other place... Until I just mentioned race. Sorry. Moving on.
