Jedi Fallen Order

Apparently, you're playing a padawan on the run soon after Order 66. Hiding your powers could be an interesting dynamic.

Of course, EA will probably fuck it up.

Deus Ex: Star Wars could be interesting.  Using your powers to stealth or fight your way through sprawling levels.  Gaining more abilities as you progress but also using them too much can get you detected.

I'm sure it wont be that, but that's my best case scenario.

Since Respawn is making it, it'll probably be solid as long as they're allowed to use the engine they want. If they got forced into Frostbite though then it's probably fucked. It's Star Wars though so it's going to take a lot to make me give a fuck now anyway.

Action Adventure?  Hmm.  Force Unleashed was fairly entertaining, even if it felt a bit sloppy compared to the old Jedi Knight series of games.

And probably that is the point.  They should completely fucking copy how those games were constructed.  I have been waiting a goddamn decade or more already.

Good trailer  that obviously begs for some (hopefully not faked) gameplay during E3.

Stay tuned :P

I find it beyond boring, but maybe it's time for me to acknowledge and admit that for as much as I will always madly adore the holy trilogy, I have outgrown Star Wars and everything about it feels uninteresting. Minus Rogue One.

Lovely presentation, fantastic music, gameplay will be boring shit. Destiny Wars.

I really felt sorry for the poor composer watching that, as he did really good work, and was trying his level best to wring out the emotion, but I really felt nothing watching it. It was a totally by the numbers trailer that implied a lot but said nothing.

Oh is there any gameplay footage around? Also, I doubt it'll be first person, or is it?

Might be a mix.  But it won't matter.  In first person mode, hitting "X" will fire your blaster.  In third person, hitting "X" will have you stylishly unsheath and ignite your saber in a gorgeous flourish, have you twirl it behind your back whilst switching hands spinning and moving into a leaping lunge followed by a quick parry/riposte-counter sequence to get you ready to perform your real power attack, which comes via hitting the "Y" button.  Don't get me started on the "Y" button.

In other words, it will lack any real soul or connection to what you are doing, while looking pretty enough to move a couple million copies.

I was inferring that from the section where dude walks on the walls in the trailer, because it looked EXACTLY like the wall-walking in Titanfall. And I'd be shocked if EA let Respawn wander too far from what they've already built in TF1, TF2 and Apex.

Let's not get carried away quite yet - it was just a CGI trailer, after all. We don't know anything about the actual gameplay - even if you trust(?) Respawn to make a good game (under EA).

They posted on Twitter it won't have microtransactions or multiplayer. People are shocked and a bit in disbelief since this is an EA game. We'll see if they're lying or not I guess.

What EA means is they won’t be in at launch. They’ll add them in after launch and the reviews are in and most people who want the game have bought it like they did with Battlefield 5.

Edit: they being microtransactions.

The tweet didn't give them any wiggle room. It's out there now and seen and if they go back it'll get flung in their faces and cause another huge controversy.

No microtransactions. No loot boxes. And no, we won't be adding them. A single-player Star Wars story for those of you who are ready to become a Jedi.

I don't trust EA at all, this is why I suspect this came straight from Disney. Disney doesn't seem to care about the video games but they had to have been aware of the controversy last time and this hits right before Episode 9. I imagine Bob Igor called and said something like "I can buy your company with pocket change. Don't make Star Wars look bad one month before our next movie comes out."

EA said in 2014 that it was tired of being regarded as one of the worst Companies in America and from now on their motto was going to be "Player First." Maybe they are actually going to try it. 5 years later. Um.

EA has totally changed  Ohhhhh, I see. swamp poop ACK!

I cannot imagine this game being any good. It won't have the story chops to make gameplay secondary. It won't have the tight gratifying gameplay to make a by the numbers story ok. And it sure as fuck isn't going to break any kind of new ground and be worth it for the feeling of playing something new and interesting.
