i hope so :)

Sounds slightly promising. I do like playing games with Star Wars dogfights.

Nope. I'm boycotting Star Wars games until those idiots get their heads out of their asses and start back up and finish Star Wars 1313. And if they don't...well my loss
jlabatman - 12/17/2013, 12:42 PM
Need to bring back Battlefront already!
McMeatFace - 12/17/2013, 12:43 PM
@jlabatman, BWHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

@ MonkeyBalls

X-Wing, Tie Fighter, and X-Wing vs. Tie Fighter were the greatest flight sims ever made, so yeah, I hope this is just like them. Those games have needed an update for such a LONG time!

@ jlabatman

They are bringing Battlefront back. Star Wars: Battlefront 3 is coming to PS4. DICE, the people that make the Battlefield games is making it.

That can be a GREAT game.
NovaCorpsFan - 12/17/2013, 1:23 PM
The sound makes it seem like it's from a headset...

Why not let SquareEnix make a SW video game?
Humperdink - 12/17/2013, 1:39 PM


I missed the part where 'Head-man" with a garbage-can lid for a shield came out to battle.

^^^^^ lmao! The force 😂

Looks like junk. This preview was boring and stiff, terrible voice acting and I'm especially sick of how everything Star Wars related as the same throwaway lines and sounds. That flat Han Solo 'yahoo!' ... That dumb R2 noise. Nothing original or interesting has come out of the SW universe since the Thrawn saga.
GhostXIII - 12/17/2013, 2:22 PM
I wouldn't mind a decent console game again. Missing the old Rogue Squadron days.

Knowing entirely that it is a rehash, I am quite excited. I spent so many hours as a teen playing X-Wing, Tie Fighter, XW vs. TF, Alliance... I am certainly open to hopping back in a star fighter. I've played Alliance a lot with the crowdsourced HD skins, custom missions... but this seems like it will be a breath of fresh air.

I bought this imperial gunner so that he would do my taxes.

SimyJo - 12/17/2013, 3:32 PM
Oh for ****s sakes!..... All we want is a modern update to x-wing vs tie-fighter - not all this F2P multi-player EA-crap that is stuffed to the rafters with overpriced micro-transactions.
TheDpool - 12/17/2013, 3:41 PM
This could be good I like the idea of customizing ships and such would be cool if you could get Slave 1
MCott - 12/17/2013, 3:42 PM
@orpheus, it's like you don't know the Star Wars universe at all. R2-D2 is an astromech droid. And uh...ALL ASTROMECH DROIDS MAKE THAT SOUND!
Panoramacon - 12/17/2013, 3:47 PM
The ships move more like cartoons then like they did in the movies.
orpheus - 12/17/2013, 4:16 PM
@mcott
As a child I was a big fan. I know astro mechs make that noise when damaged, but it was thrown in there as fan service without reason or a newer, original spin on it, just like most of modern Star Wars is - weak fan service at the expense of anything new or interesting. I'm not an original trilogy purist, either, but bored of the same thing repackaged and sold.
UncleBurnsie - 12/17/2013, 5:35 PM
wtf?? They stole my playbook!

"Squadron left, squadron right, squadron FLY!!!"
DetBullock - 12/17/2013, 5:43 PM
Dear god, I do hope they're going to make something single player too, because of my crappy internet and win7 issues with older games I'd be stuck forever with playing Rogue Leader on the gamecube I "borrowed" from my brother.

Disney, do you see how us X-wing and Rogue Squadron fans are reduced to play acadey Star Wars space sims with *gasp* a gamepad?
If you make a single player game on PC like the free to play trailer thing you can have my money.
Pretty please?
HeadPool420 - 12/17/2013, 5:48 PM
The sounds on this were like the special editions. Remember every time something new showed up it had to make noises so you saw it. The sounds on this game are so loud that it's saying "hey it's Star Wars" cause the powers that be think we as fans are stupid.
Pox - 12/17/2013, 5:58 PM
If I'm promised the chance to pilot a Mandalorian Bes'uliik, I will run out and buy a new computer just to play this frelling game.
TyrantBoss - 12/17/2013, 8:39 PM
Whoever was voicing the pilot SUCKED! That was actually a pretty lame teaser.
mgeoff88 - 12/17/2013, 10:49 PM
Yah, bring on SWB3!!!
MightyZeus - 12/17/2013, 11:48 PM
Looks good. I'll be sure to check out the reviews and buy the game if it's worth buying.
RetroFit - 12/18/2013, 7:47 AM
Wow, that's some horrible voice acting. Sounds like boring actors reading lines off a page, not pilots that are surprised by enemy fighters and about to engage into battle. At all. And that R2 scream is being done to death. To. DEATH!
RetroFit - 12/18/2013, 7:49 AM
I just watched it again with my eyes closed. Hands down that is the WORST voice acting I have EVER heard in my ENTIRE LIFE!
FerFogs - 12/18/2013, 9:43 AM
MightyZeus - It's... f2p?

BTW I really dislike some F2P aspects... like paying for an X-Wing early access / shortcut. And paying more for a Millennium Falcon.

Write it down. It will happen.
