Don't get too excited as it by EA and theirs supposed to be a big reveal on Monday, but my guess would be some sort of online nonsense like the Battlefront games.
Wonder if this was the game EA was working on when Double Damage pitched their StarWars game.
Yeah I heard we were going to get a new game.... this could be a great game IF they stick to the old game models in the X-Wing games.... Or even just like some of these well done mods that are out there. They could really make a great story based game here if they wanted, I wouldn't buy this if it was online only.
Supposedly the video is going to be displayed here:
Nice CGI but no gameplay footage but looking on the game sites they say it will be 5v5 multiplayer and cross platform support also a single player campaign but no word on how long it will be as well as VR support.
Think we will get some gameplay footage later in the week.
You can definitely tell from the trailer that its weighted more on the MP side of things. But they could also build on the SP side of things where you build on your squadron, leveling them etc... making you care about your squad like in Wing Commander 🙂
They could have something here IF they make a SP/MP that has good gameplay, but we won't know until the gameplay trailers hit... it is releasing this year though
Supposedly there will be a gameplay reveal on Thursday
2nd of October according to the Steam page https://store.steampowered.com/app/1222730/STAR_WARS_Squadrons/?snr=1_4_4__118
looks like you have to have a origin account as well, it's on the cheap side for a full price game, makes me think that single player campaign might not be very long. Think I will give it a miss until some time next year although I would get it if it's going to support PSVR. As the free VR DLC that was given away with the BattleFront game was pretty good.
Gameplay trailer... Note bad, I will be interested if all these customizations and skills can all be attained by playing or if there is some sort of loot box setup? But they have of course player vs player and single player elements and playing with bots. So the game has got some promise, and personally they are setting the mood, it feels like it will be a nice Star Wars experience.
Better than expected, looks like EA are learning how to make games.
Will be interested in seeing how they do the power management with a joypad and it looks like the VR will be on the PS4 version as well. so I will be buying it some time next year.
