Guess they didn't have quite enough access to create spaces battles...

Lol. If you thought we were going to get that big of a game by this november you are a lil delusional. 2 1/2 years isnt enough time to make that good of something out of scratch.

Big black environments and a skybox with a couple planets and stars in it, and some asteroids or whatnots are way too much to make. Much easier to do worlds and environments.

Otherwise, why give people a complete game when they can sell the things people want with DLC.


More like 1-1/2 years. It'll be close to 2 years in development when it's finally released.

and yet I LOL'ed at the trailer. AT-AT in the forest?!
Run of the mill storm troopers on speed bikes?!
That trailer plays like gumbo soup.

It wouldn't be that hard to clear trees for it when you have lasers at your disposal.

I thought it was a cool video all things considered but I want gameplay.

Weren't there AT-AT's on Endor's moon? Not roaming around, those were the 2 legged things, but near the landing port I remember there being one.

Hopefully EA gives us unprecedented access to a cool pre-release demo, because I'm still on the fence after two mediocre Battlefields.

A beta is a must for a game like this. Hopefully they do one.
