  2. I'm excited, but still cautious.

  4. I'm not convinced until they show me more of the actual game.

  5. I think this game will just end up being a bunch of overhyped Bantha poodoo.

    That I believe that is one of Palpatines droids that are sent out to high ranking imperials that in the event of his death they carry out his last orders. They turn up in both the Aftermath books & the Shattered Empire comic run.

    You're right that it's Palpatine's face - but they are Sentinel droids, projecting a recording of his image.


    Edit: Gah, hadn't scrolled far enough down to see that @Addi Ras had responded already!

    I'm beyond thrilled. I was apprehensive after the dismal Battlefront release, but my perspective has completely changed after hands on time and getting to speak with the developers; I attended EA Play as a part of my channel and this game is truly a sequel to Battlefront II (2005) that we deserve.

    The team listened to the criticism and took it to heart, building a game deserving the Battlefront brand. When I got back I pre-ordered, I truly support it that much.

    When they say they're having trouble working Anakin into the game, because they don't see how they can have him fight Darth Vader...
    [​IMG]
    LOL. But in all seriousness, I am still kinda hyped for this game, even though I know I probably won't even play it. As for characters that I think we'll see:

    PT/TCW:
    Anakin
    Obi-Wan
    Padme
    Yoda
    Ahsoka
    Mace
    Captain Rex
    Commander Cody
    Count Dooku
    General Grievous
    Darth Maul
    Asajj Ventress?
    Tarrful?

    OT/RO:
    Luke
    Han
    Leia
    Chewie
    Lando
    Jyn
    Cassian
    Chirrut
    Baze
    K2SO
    Nien Nunb
    Greedo
    Boba
    Bossk
    Dengar
    IG-88
    Darth Vader
    Emperor Palpatine
    Krennic
    Ben Kenobi skin

    TFA:
    Rey
    Finn
    Poe
    Kylo
    Hux
    Captain Phasma
    Han Solo skin
    Leia skin?

    TLJ:
    Rose
    Captain Phasma
    DJ?
    Snoke?
    Luke skin
    Rey skin
    Finn skin
    Poe skin
    Kylo skin

    (Rebels?):
    Ezra
    Kanan
    Sabine
    Zeb
    Ahsoka skin
    Grand Inquisitor
    Thrawn?

    These are just my guesses and I'm sure there will be more characters/skins than just these.

    Pretty sure its something from the canon comics- something called (if I remember correctly) a Sentry Bot. Made by Palpatine to enforce his will in the event of his death.

    Kinda weird that they didn't show up in the Aftermath novels, though.

    Not sure if anyone saw this, but they've confirmed the following heroes:
    • Luke
    • Han
    • Leia
    • Chewbacca
    • Lando
    • Rey
    • Finn
    • Yoda
    And the following villains have been confirmed:
    • Darth Vader
    • Boba Fett
    • Bossk
    • Emperor Palpatine
    • Darth Maul
    • General Grievous
    • Kylo Ren
    • Captain Phasma
    • Iden Versio

    I really hope that this game gives us more characters. Now that they're expanding this game to all of the films, I really want to see every major character, including those that were snubbed in the initial 2005 Battlefront II (Qui-Gon, Padmé/Queen Amidala, and young Obi-Wan/Ben Kenobi immediately come to mind). I have a feeling we will still be pretty limited, though.

    It would be nice to see them include Jyn, Cassian, and Krennic from Rogue One at the very least, the aforementioned characters from the prequel trilogy, and characters like Anakin as a Jedi and some of the other Jedi that were featured in the prequel trilogy and The Clone Wars.

    I'm hoping for a lot of new maps, too!

    Has anyone pre-ordered this game or the first EA Battlefront through Amazon?

    I was going to pre-order it for the Xbox One, but if I do it through Amazon, you get a code instead of an actual disc. I'd rather have an actual disc just because if my Xbox Live expires, I want to still be able to play the story mode without having to connect online, and I'm afraid if I only have a code, the game won't be playable unless I have Xbox Live. I just got an Xbox One a few weeks ago, so I'm not really familiar with how this works, but considering the pre-order is $80, I want to make sure I know what I'm doing before I do it!

    Great find, I look forward to visiting Kamino again & hopefully Kashyyyk too, nothing quite like returning home for Battlefront.

    I wanna see Darth Revan and other old republic characters in the game. Also they need to change rocket launchers back to the old version.

    Images of some of the new special characters were released via Twitter:

    Death Trooper (Empire):
    [​IMG]

    Wookiee Warrior (Presumably Rebel Alliance):
    [​IMG]

    B2 Rocket Droid (Confederacy of Independent Systems):
    [​IMG]

    Flame Trooper (First Order):
    [​IMG]

    So far it seems as though each faction will have, at least, 2 special characters. So there are some that have yet to be revealed.

    Officially confirmed special characters (So far):

    Republic:
    • Jet Trooper
    Confederacy of Independent Systems
    • B2 Battle Droid
    • B2 Rocket Droid
    Galactic Empire:
    • Death Trooper
    Rebel Alliance:
    • Wookiee Warrior
    First Order:
    • Flame Trooper

    Speculated:

    Republic:
    • Clone Commando - Referenced in alpha code and in droid voice lines.
    Galactic Empire:
    • Jump Trooper - Stormtrooper with a jet/jump pack seen in cover art.
    Rebel Alliance:
    • Jetpack Equipped Trooper - Unconfirmed, but likely.
    First Order:
    • Unknown - Considering the pattern so far, it seems highly likely that this will be a jet/jump pack equipped stormtrooper. That, or they could break the pattern and give us a stormtrooper equipped with a riot shield and electro-baton, ala TR-8R.
    [​IMG]
    Resistance:
    • Unknown - Likely jet/jump pack equipped trooper of some sort, if the pattern holds true.
    • Unknown - Each faction has, at least, 1 unique special unit. That said, I'm at a loss as to what the unique special unit for the Resistance would be, as so little of them are shown in The Force Awakens. Perhaps this is something that can be taken from The Last Jedi?

    They need to buff Lando Callarisian, he is the best team support for hoth maps but needs work on others.
