"The teams tried to approach it as if it was real" well... that is how ALL GAMES should be approached, and I imagine MOST do, to an extent... But, I am more of a Halo fan to Star Wars. But I have a soft spot for most all sci-fi media. Not sure this game is worth my time though. I like the idea and concept, but a game with a story and multiplayer, is there any co-op? Bots? I am not much of a PvP person anymore... so, yea. I don't want my co-op to be limited to PvP.

You got to give a heads up to these guys, they made a game what lots of us dreamed since we seen the trench run as kids. I was really suprised that this game actually come out and highly enjoying it. Thanks guys !

I just wonder, whay the bombs are ejected downward and don't just travel forward in the trajectory the ship has during their launch or just slightly faster (so basically a bit like a dumbfire torpedo).

Ummmm x-wings can go vertically up and down that’s how they take off and land... I guess that would be repulsorlifts tho

The best part in the story it that your character do not betray the empire, long live the empire, by the way flying a tie is a delight, who needs shields when the enemy can't shoot you down.

X-Wings can raise up, hover and turn I thought. They did in a New Hope when Luke was flying one for the first time and exited the hangar on Yavin. Or is he talking about something else I missed.

They’ve made a mistake here. What gamers want is an aesthetic that feels familiar with the original Trilogy. It should enlighten gameplay. Gamers don’t want to be shackled to 70’s visual effects and gimmicks.

With all this thought-out detail, I'm amazed that they got the yaw and roll animations so wrong in every single republic fighter. When you yaw, the joystick moves, and when you roll, the pedals - it's backwards. I really like this game but it makes playing for the republic jarring. Hopefully they fix it.

I was convinced that the B-Wing would be impossible to effectively convey in this game. It's massive compared to other ships, and the gyroscopic control seemed to complicated to pull off. I'm so glad I was proven wrong. EA has a stellar team here and I would happily pay for expansions to this game.
TheL4W 2 måneder siden
Yeah, expansions... Just give us another campaign, even if it is just "the old days" during the rebellion. Or give us a coop mode or better: Both. I would pay 10 to 20 bucks for that and I think, other players would do the same.

I unfortunately could not contribute to the live stream however it appears that your camera is overheating the photo sensor after the 4hr mark. Hence, the blue frames that kept occuring and the randomness of it.

Consider the cockpit layout of the TIE Fighter variants and Rebel Alliance/New Republic starfighters, it does make sense because I always wonder what would a immersive cockpit in every Star Wars starfighter looks like in a video game. We do not get to see that much of starfighter cockpits in the Original Trilogy and the Prequel Trilogy because some parts and instrumentation doesn’t do anything. We did get little more focus of different starfighter cockpits in Star Wars Resistance and the Sequel Trilogy with the Fireball and other Aces’ starfighters, First Order and Special Forces TIE Fighters and T-70 X-Wing. Nerds want to know about fighter plane technology and Star Wars starfighter technology. I consider myself as a nerd.

the idea of the A-wing "Is able to hit hard, but a single blast bolt can ruin your day." Nooo. Your fighting a WAR, a single bolt should never ruin ur DAY!! The game is WEEEEAAAAK, a Single Bolt Should never ruin your Day, and A-wing could take a small volley, and an X-Wing could take a huge volley. STOP redesigning, stop thinking the GAME Devs Better.

12:21, "A wing is my favourite, ship and we had a lot of fun redesigning it," true it no longer feels like an A-wing. You really did redesign it, and change it.

@Brent Phillips I miss the Idea that A Wings Had Dual Concussion Launchers and Laser Canons, I hate being regulated to fighting other Star Ships when the A-wing much like a Flight of X-Wings could take down a Star Destroyer an A-Wing squadron, wouldn't ever AIM to take one down, but doesn't mean Thier Speed, grace, and (Legends,) Firepower wasn't up to Snuff. I feel like the New Star Wars Ships have all been weakened and no longer follow sound Military Docterin.

I dunno, feels a lot like what I figured an A-Wing would fly like. Small, fragile, and fast. You can even hook it up with some of the same loadouts as in the Rogue Squadron series.

11:48 there's clattoner and rattling, like ur ship is being held together by duck type. Never in comics would that be the case, because you know I'd rather be satisfied with craft I am flying that Certian it will fall apart around me But you know disney can keep pushing Thier Propeganda through the video games as they dumb down an entire sub genre of books

They focused to much on Making "Thier," star wars, they tried reimagining Star Wars, and they lost it. It's a 3/10 flight simulator, that is Skinned to appear in space.and the Flight Mechanics are janked, and old. They can't be fine tuned, and there is no ease of access. And the Ability to Stop and go dead stick but still be able to maneuver on an invisible Y=axis (is unrealistic, for you'd sti be slowly drifting, and space craft moves fast enough dead sticking to aim makes it harder.) The speed of the Air Crafts is actually quiet slow, I don't feel impressed by this game.. I feel let down.

9:11, "Etheric Space that's the medium ships flu through,"??? Was never Canon, this sound like Disney progedanda as they try to spin and push Thier brand of star wars. There was no "medium," it's the vacuum of space, go pick up a book, and out down game Developing talking to the Game Devs not anyone else btw

Sooo... they could've given us better FOV in TIEs by following the production error but decided against it... Hey guys, it's not fun flying a TIE in VR. It feels like a chore because of this limited visibility thing. The production error should've been followed.
