      Cool, sounds like the game will be massive I really hope so. "biggest game I have ever worked on in my career" quite the statement, seems real positive.

      Also cool that Criterion Games is part of the project too, they have worked with them before so that is a good thing.

      I hope the SP portion of the game will hold its own too and they went full out on it as well, I want to believe.

      Really looking forward to it, I am sure we will see a lot at E3.

        I'm so excited for any big new Star Wars game. But a Star Wars FPS campaign where you don't play a Jedi (well not initially at the least), holy shit! :O

          A reboot of Republic Commando in the new canon please.

            Can't inf enough. Using the three mode weapon in the Scarif DLC for Battlefront 2016 is a frustrating tease.

      No questions about VR missions?!


      Anyway, customizable star fighters and Taun Tauns confirmed!

      The first one was kind of fun for a couple of hours then it got frustrating, someone across the map can snipe you with a blaster.
      All their changes sound very cool so far, i'm also interested in upgraded visuals, the first looked great but making it better would be awesome.

        Weird sentence, I assume you mean a pistol. That has been fixed for a while now. But, there are a lot more pistols in the star wars universe than other weapons so there are still some powerful pistols in the game.

        Nah. I don't think you speak for everyone. BF1 has convinced me that DICE needs to do a lot more to be theme specific. The reskins aren't good enough.

      Played more of the first one last night. Still fun, and this looks amazing as a sequel.

      I also really like the studio talking about the feeling about being a lowly trooper. That has been missed in too many games across the genre lately.
