    off topic but BTW EA is revealling a new space combat star wars game tomorrow.
    Fingers crossed for some VR mode developped by Criterion, as they made that insane VR mission for Battlefront.

    I thought Microtransactions were dead? No? Too naive? ok.

    They're dead. All hail our new masters, a gazillion special editions and the season pass.

    Heard rambling of multiplayer focused like Battlefront, interest drastically dropped. But let's see where next gen Frostbite would take us.

    Is it confirmed that the game will be shown tomorrow?

    So far, EA confirmed that the game is called Star Wars: Squadrons.



    It's a space combat game, but other than that I only know that Jason Schreier commented it's a "small project", so I don't expect this to have enormous production values.

    another poster


    I'd die for another Xwing vs tie fighter game.
    Also just my take but I wish we would play more non-human characters from Starwars universe in solo campaigns.

    Oct 2nd release $40
    VR support xbox one , ps4 and pc via steam / origin / epic

    No next gen announcement.

    Immersive vfirst person 5v5 dog fights and fleet battles.

    Tune in Thur for gameplay demo.

    Single player confirmed.

    Galton and yaven are playable locations
    Game play only customization weapon/ hulls to customize performance hull and interior stuff to customize looks

    Single player - after death star 2. You go through new republic and empire squadrons. Diverse cast and cameos from familiar faces

    I loved the old x wing and tie fighter games

    Super excited for the VR stuff going to look great on my index and some of the newer headsets at work. Hopefully my dual stick can work if not I might invest in a hotas going to need it for star citizen.

    /sigh gameplay really needs better ways of being described.

    Wonder if they'r sharing photogrammetry derived assets with the Battlefield games. It seems to look the part.

    I tried to type out information quickly . But my thoughts are this the pricing is good , the seemingly lack of Micro transactions are good and vr support is great. So I will buy it on steam and play vr if the game play looks good.

    it will look better than this, that was not even PS4 pro optimized (and not for PC)

    sorry I was typing fast as it was happening.

    It has Vr Support and the game is going to be on the xbox one , ps4 , and pc via steam , origin and epic game stores.

    I am not implying the xbox one has vr support

    Sorry, info was appreciated.

    Immersion is my trigger word!

    Purple is my safe word.
