  • Kirill Neko Steshin

    Considaring WHO writing the game…. Let’s just temper our expectations…. Can be full garbage..

  • Uncle Ocelot

    It’s nice to see them depict the empire as the good guys they always were for once.

  • Uncle Ocelot

    Who’s writing it?

  • Gale

    The Empire did NOTHING wrong.

  • Jumping Pearl
  • Mr0303

    The trailer was pretty good and suggests an interesting story, but the preorder crap is just a sore reminder that EA will mess things up again.

  • Guest

    I got the first one as a gift and I still kinda felt ripped off. There was just so little to actually do, and the multiplayer felt like a mindless shooting gallery. Not at all like the Battlefront I remember, I played that shit for years with my friends. Won’t pick this up unless there’s some big improvements, but it’s EA, so it’ll probably be the same shit.

  • Scorching Sirius

    It’s the same goddamn strategy; release the game before the movie in order to sell it based on hype instead of quality…

  • Kirill Neko Steshin

    Ex-IGN review Editor and ex-Yager Development team lead.

  • Kirill Neko Steshin

    so far there is no season pass…..

  • patyos

    Doubt it’ll be as big of a game as the original Star Wars Battlefront 2 ……….

  • patyos

    The true Battlefront 2 is already released on steam ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

  • catazxy

    How about a new jedi academy or jedi outcast instead, actually scratch that, they can’t make a true sequel to my favorite games anymore, not in today’s climate.

  • Fenrir007

    Interesting trailer, and I like this take on the Imperium (who always looked like the nice guys to me), but I have no hopes and dreams since this is EA we are talking about.

  • catazxy

    Female lead in SW7, in Rouge One and now in SWBF2, its almost like they are trying to push an agenda rather then good characters…

  • catazxy

    Yeah there is no season pass, but they said that they will replace it with something else, perhaps a even shittier solution…

  • Eden

    They’re also ending the only male led Star Wars TV Show and apparently replacing it with an all female casted Star Wars show lol…they’re a little too transparent

  • Eden

    I thought the empire was nothing but cis white males lol I wonder what this chick’s wife is like…

  • Eden

    Would’ve been cool if you were able to make your own Jedi similar to how Destiny works

  • STARSBarry

    oh great so we get the ONLY person in the empire without a British accent to be the lead, WHO THE FUCK WAS RETARDED ENOUGH TO CALL THAT SHOT?

  • STARSBarry

    was that announced somewhere as far I know EA are working in conjunction with Amy Hennig as writer for there new star wars games…. you know the fine women who put together the scripts for the likes of uncharted, Jack & Dexter and legacy of kane, doubt EA would overlook that level of talent for a fucking IGN review editor.

  • Magnifico Ginormous

    If the prequels are aids this is full blown cancer.

  • Uncle Ocelot

    I can’t wait to see Han Solo get upstaged by his stronk fierce and independent female sidekick in his movie.

  • Uncle Ocelot

    I don’t know if Amy is writing for this game specifically, but they definitely have an IGN review editor.

  • Kirill Neko Steshin

    Micro-transactions for cosmetics?

  • Kirill Neko Steshin

    We talking about different games.

  • Neojames82

    At least she looks better than that mutant face from Andromeda.

  • Urobolus

    Emperor Palpatine is such a nice guy, hiring all these stronk independent women into the major military roles of his sith empire.

  • AnarKreig

    Hey! I actually liked the lead in Rogue One.

    Rey is shit, thoroughly and completely made out of excrement.

  • AnarKreig

    Calling it now, the imperial protagonist will have a change of heart and defect.

    Because we can’t have relatable characters in nazi orders.

  • Uncle Ocelot

    A plank of wood would make for a better main character than Rey. Haven’t seen Rogue One yet, Felicity Jones a qt though.

  • Forgotten One
  • Neojames82

    I agree. Rey was just…meh at best but whatever, we are stuck with her. Rogue One was a shit ton better than Force Awakens though, hands down.

  • Neojames82
  • Kiwi Hoy

    Literally the only reason to come to this site anymore

  • Forgotten One

    Basically this:
    Game has promising or bad trailer -> nichegamer comments: “it will be garbage/let’s whine about the female characters”

  • Kiwi Hoy

    Alternative version:
    Game is all about anime tiddies -> “OMG BEST GAME EVER PLZ NO CENSOR”

  • Forgotten One

    I wonder if people that complain here actually invest that much time playing that very game they complain about

  • Kiwi Hoy

    It’s also very hilarious that your comment included whining about female characters because there are several people on this very article doing just that

  • Forgotten One

    Yeah I know right, because clearly the design of one single female character can doom an entire game -_-

  • Kiwi Hoy

    No see here’s the thing, this woman wasn’t a submissive half naked loli so she’s been censored. That’s the only explanation for people finding any other kind of female appealing

  • catazxy

    I dislike them both just as much, mediocre acting at best and 0% character development. Just a bunch of overpowered women inserted without any decent explanations.

  • Mr0303

    Mitch Dyer – this doesn’t bode well. The game will likely have SJW garbage.

  • Forgotten One

    Stop saying stuff like that or people will realise that you don’t like women at all. After all, if you’re against such things, you must be gay.

  • Kiwi Hoy

    And all of the gays are part of the SJW agenda and therefore must be trying to take away their lolis. HOW DEEP DOES THE RABBIT HOLE GO?

  • ForsakenEagle

    Single player or gtfo!

  • OldPalpy

    I’m surprised Disney haven’t gone back and patched Tie Fighter into being about your pilot having a change of heart and defecting.

  • OldPalpy

    Yeah it’s not like that just didn’t happen with Mass Effect Andromeda ;)

  • Forgotten One

    Thx confirming the mentality of this community ;)

  • TheOnceAndFutureKing

    Another piece of shit that will fail because too many “misogynist neckbeards” don’t care to play an underdeveloped, over hyped, and over priced game that stars an androgynous mulatto wymyn.

  • Jesse (RIP Iwata)

    I’m so glad I’m not the only one that thinks this. I was destroyed on Facebook when I made the notion. lol.

  • GuyGuysonEsquire

    Except EA already all but said bluntly that you get to, suprise, suprise, betray the Empire and join the rebel scum.

  • ProxyDoug

    Have you two considered getting a room to continue this circlejerk?

  • Forgotten One

    you misspelled “original”

  • Zack Attack

    If I want to be honest, I enjoyed The Force Awakens. However, people shouldn’t be mocked for opinions, especially if the fanboys assume its because of the female lead.

  • Jesse (RIP Iwata)

    Oh, absolutely. Though, the whole Ghostbusters debacle with James Rolfe was a far cry from that ideal. lol.
