  2. I'm excited, but still cautious.

    40.9%
  3. I'm neither overly hyped, nor pessimistic. I'm the one in the middle, like the Bendu.

    9.7%
  4. I'm not convinced until they show me more of the actual game.

    3.2%
  5. I think this game will just end up being a bunch of overhyped Bantha poodoo.

    This looks crazy. Granted, it's just a trailer, but I can't imagine them not improving space combat greatly compared to the first Battlefront. I loved the flying stages in Battle Station, but other starfighter modes leave much to be desired.

    The design of the maps in the trailer looks amazing. In the basic starfighter mode of the original game it sucked that you were basically flying in the void. Now they put emphasis on flying around some constructions etc. and rightly so.

    Can't wait for that game.

    You know, generally, I'm never excited for the space battles in any of the Battlefront games. I don't even play the space battles in the original ones, and I only play space battles in the 2015 Battlefront when I have to. I've always preferred ground assault. But after watching this trailer, I'm actually somewhat excited for the space battles. I still don't anticipate I'll be doing much with them in contrast to the ground assault, but I really like that there appear to be so many improvements in every area of this game so far. I really hope that this is as good as it looks!

    Awesome clip, it seems like generations of starfighter warfare have come to together for one epic showdown.

    I had my reservations about the space battles but after all the Gamescom footage, I'm blown away. Also what I love about this game is that each map will have it's own objective or spin on it. Definitely preordering and ready for the beta in October at least.

    Agreed, it's amazing quality gameplay & that our piloting skills be tested in these epic battles.

    A Redditor with a solid history of leaks has just leaked the supposed contents of next month's Beta.

    • The beta will have three maps: Galactic Assault on Theed (40 players), Starfighter Assault on Fondor (24 players), Strike on Takodana.
    • Offline mode Skirmish will also be available and contain solo, split-screen and co-op gameplay for two players.
    • Available Heroes during the beta will be the same ones we saw at EA’s EA Play event at E3.
    • A new vehicle called the “LAAT gunship” will be present in the beta, but it’s suggested that it’ll be on a predetermined flight path and cannot be controller by players.
    • Size of the beta is expected to be 14-16GB.
    • Five to nine emotes will be available for soldiers.
    • Players will be able to earn credits and collect Star Cards, but all progress will be wiped once the beta is done.
    • The Battlefront II beta graphics will be further improved compared to the E3 build.

    Naboo
    Kamino
    Kashyyyk
    Endor
    Death Star II
    Hoth
    Mos Eisley
    Yavin IV
    Jakku
    Takodana
    Starkiller Base

    I copied the answers from someone on Twitter, but it wasn't hard to decipher. It looks like this confirms the leaks/rumours. No surprises. It's actually quite a lot of maps for a single multi-stage mode.
