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

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    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…

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

    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

    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.

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

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

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

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

    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.

    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

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

    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

    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.

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

    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.

    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?

    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.

    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.
