    On discounting, let me just make it really clear right now so all you guys don't have anything to write about on Black Friday. We bring the game
    out right before Black Friday, so you will most likely not have discounts at Black Friday that we pay for. That doesn't mean that you might not see
    some stores choose to discount games on Black Friday out of their own pockets. We will most likely discount the game like we did last time around
    the movie launch, and maybe you'll even see some selected discounts around the holidays, either Thanksgiving or Christmas. That's the way the
    games business always has worked. And so if you see the title on discount, don't read anything into that other than the fact that, that's the way
    you sell games in the holidays.

    Probably buying it. I enjoyed the beta thoroughly, and honestly don't give a shit about microtransactions.

    Is the "three day early access" the full three days, or is it EA's usual ten hour trial?

    Pretty sure it's the whole thing, though I think there's a free trial on origin as well.

    I'm enjoying the one little Arcade mission I can play while it downloads. The graphics and sound work is spot on, as per usual for DICE. Kylo Ren is a very fun hero.

    they tried to pull some shady loot box BS to get characters im holding off an any games from their publisher until they stop being greedy microtransaction cunts
    there was some post on plebbit talking through some math about how it takes nearly 40 hours of in game play time to unlock one character
    its a trap to encourage u to buy loot boxes that dont even have the garuntee of giving u a character
    imo look into the shady shit all tripple A titles do IE activision copyrighting a microtransaction based match making system to sell u more shit

    the fact that videogames dont respect your time and yet seem to charge you for it under the guise of it being "optional" irritates me

    like in gta online for example if you want to buy one of the super cars its literally a few days worth of painful grinding on the same heist, or in world of warcraft its walking everywhere

    where's martin luther when you need him

    the campaign was pretty fun and filled some of the missing pieces betweeen the empire strikes back and the Force Awakens. I honestly enjoyed it a lot, it was very fitting of the Star Wars universe. Filled with very serious and tense moments and then some brief comedy. Lots of fun, only thing i wish for was for it to be longer :(

    The very principle of this game, even without the microtransactions scheme is kind of disgusting to me. I guess I'm sort of bummed that I'm missing a mildly interesting single-player campaign that's only marginally better than that of any other Star Wars themed polished turds released in the last seven or eight years, but I can get the same experience watching it on Youtube for free.

    Joke's on you, guys, I bought this game in 2006.

    I'm hung over and I can't shake the sense that this is relevant somehow:
    "I allow Sangtiago the last word. Toward the end of her presentation, she shows a visual with six circles, which represent, I gather, the components now forming for her brave new world of video games as art. The circles are labeled: Development, Finance, Publishing, Marketing, Education, and Executive Management. I rest my case."

    Practically the entire multiplayer progression system is linked to RNG loot crate drops. I only can say what the fuck.

    Edit: I also forget to mention that sometimes you can get FUCKING DUPLICATE DROPS OF THE SAME FUCKING CARD YOU ALREADY GOT WHICH JUST GETS CONVERTED INTO MORE FUCKIN CREDITS FOR YOU TO DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

    tbh we should just bankrupt EA by demanding women's fifa and women's NBA
    nobody will buy them after they sink millions of dollars
    then maybe we'll get a publisher that doesn't choke us down with loot boxes

    If you think it's that easy to bankrupt EA, you clearly don't realise that there's a lot of teenage girls out there who are happy to spend hundreds of monies on Sims 4 alone

    Everyone crying about spending 40 hours to get Darth Vader are retarded, running through the campaign and doing the arcade game modes will get you enough credits to buy him. even then, Darth Maul and Kylo Ren are better characters lmfao.

    honest question though, aside from better presentation/graphics, what makes this game different from Pandemic's Battlefront II?

    The new trilogy, Arcade mode, a real campaign mode, more weapons, more heroes, better space sections. The presentation/graphics are a very big part of the jump, I think, too. Pandemic's BF2 was a great game, I poured endless hours into it as a kid, but the controls continue to feel clunky and it does look dated.

    Edit: I'm not pleased with all the directions taken by the new game. I absolutely adored the old vehicle system where you could just run up and hop into a speeder, now replaced with a pointstreak style system.

    There are 4 weapons per class, to a total of 16(not counting hero classes), I think that might even be less than Battlefront 2015 at release, haven't checked though.

    Certainly more than Pandemic's Battlefront, though, which was the question ;)

    Pandemic BF2 had the same amount actually, one weapon for each class for each faction, with each era having its own weapons. So 4 weapons per class(droids, empire, rebels, clones), for 4 standard classes, which is also 16. That's not counting upgraded weapons you could get through killstreaks(flechettes etc.), which would make it have more guns.

    Keep in mind that's a game that came out in 2005 with a much smaller team too.

    Edit: Admittedly most weapons were the same gameplay wise(outside of having their own name and model) except for the super battle droid.

    It’s fun af idk why you guys are on the hate train lol. “Micro-transactions” honestly they aren’t that big of a difference, I’m just using the default weapons plus a few bonus cards i got for preordering and I’m maintaining positive k/ds and having a blast.
