Neither do I
Star creed: assassin Jedi That's what I expect
My God do people realize that this announcement does not mean Ubisoft now has exclusive rights or that SW games will now be shared with EA/Ubisoft? This only means that more developers will now be able to make SW games. It just happens that Ubisoft is the first out of the chute.
Yep and they also said they have more to announce later on with different studios
Disney sees $$$$$$$$ the more games the more $$$$$$$$$ Star Wars is a money printing license
It will be monetize heavy
Why the division 1 and 2 wasnt, you never had to buy a damn thing if you chose not to, not TD2s battle pass which had a free tree to go through nor buy up the cosmetics. Sorry to say but I do not mind have cosmetics that are paid for on a star wars game if it helps fund further DLC . Also it still shocks me at how some people still moan to this day over Cosmetics that you must buy, where were you all at the time that Cosmetics became paid for content, no where in sight, you brought them then and moaned later on. I'd rather have a base game where you pay for the game play it and have the option to say yes or no as to whether you buy those cosmetics. Like I said you do not have to buy any of the cosmetics.
I wasn't excited for Disney Star Wars but The Mandalorian turned out pretty great.
The mando show is great. The rest of the movies leave something to be desired
It had some great moments that I appreciate and it helps the scenes that are walking simulator crap and various filler.
mandalorian was nice....but the rest are [email protected]
Itll be a generic open world we all know that. But hey Ill take a ubi assassins creed, farcry, division-like star wars game over anything EA has a part in.
I dunno...a generic open world Star Wars does not interest me at all... And while EA fell short most of the time, and I have little respect for their practices...Respawn DID knock it out of the park with Fallen Order, which was under EA's banner. I will take more of that than what Ubi will likely bring anyday. But we did not expect that from EA either, so who knows maybe thet can suprise us.
How do you know it will be generic? And to be generic would require a previous open world SW game to compare to....which there isnt.
Itll be a generic uni game, set in the star ears universe
@GameZenith I mean in terms of a generic Ubisoft open world game. Star Wars wpuld just be a theme using the same formula they have used for everything over the years.
Because it will be monetized MMO that nobody asked for.
if it was actually another mmo, like a genuine one with a monthly sub i'd buy it
I'm excited for any company that isn't EA working on a Star Wars game, let's see something fresh. Also, Ubisoft just knocked it out of the park with Fenyx Rising. Given the two options of no extra SW game, or potential Ubi SW game, I'll take something over nothing.
I'm always willing to give a developer the benefit of the doubt. It could turn out to be amazing for all we know. Let's wait and see, if they mess it up then you don't have to buy it.
Exactly. I'm just excited someone else besides EA is getting a shot at the franchise. Wait and see, but at least Star Wars games are actually being made.
agreed, it's not like the world is worse off with more Star Wars games. And like you said, it'll be nice to see what someone else can do. Maybe they will surprise us all. Or maybe they will do what Ubisoft does. Time will tell, lol.
It's hard to get excited about anything Ubisoft related. The last period of time they were coming out with multiple great games on a consistent basis, was back in the 2000's.
I'm not as well until I see some interesting gameplay.
Of course we dread another bloated open-world game lacking content to be sold later as DLC... it’s what Ubi does best. Lucky for them EA didn’t really set the bar too high either. Fallen Order was decent.
You clearly are not playing the division 2 anymore or haven't for a long time if ever did to begin with to make that comment.
I beat both Division games, both were bloated, both had bland near non-existent narratives, both had much of the good MP content behind DLC. I fail to see your point...
Because it's Ubisoft
Why people dont care about your personal opinion about a game ?
Skip the Ubisoft version, waiting to see who else jumps on this! A shred of amazing news in this shit year, good to hear it!
I am excited by it. I am a division 1 and 2 player, have been playing Ubisoft games for a very long time since before the online world came. I always said I thought if any developer could make a massive star wars game it could be Ubisoft and I stand by that. So long as they put the time and work in as I'm sure they will, then I dont see why people are stressing before anything has even come to light.
I'll withhold any judgement til they actually give ANY details about the substance of the game or better yet show some gameplay. At the very least it's good to have such a huge license be non exclusive again because it gives gamers more options to enjoy the Star Wars universe.
I dont rate massive entertainment - The division 1 and 2 were average, generic online shooters in my opinion.i'll keep my eyes open for this but it'snot sounding promising
I'm not huge on the franchise, but I tend to enjoy many of the games. That said, I find it hard to get excited by yet another Ubi open world, which will likely use the same template virtually all of their similar games use.
Thank you for saying it. Same games, different skins = Ubisoft
