    Alright guys. We are gonna get more info today, but this game is going to be better than the first. Theres a lot to like, just from the Clone Wars stuff. They are using lots of TCW aspects, it seems.

    It looks pretty sick. Matthew Wood voicing Droids, Baker voicing Clones. Pretty sure they got Witwer doing Maul and the sequel cast is doing their own characters.

    Nice effort by the developer team.

    Kashyyk, Kamino, Naboo all in the launch game. Yavin confirmed for the OT this time probably with Hoth and Endor as well.

    I have 12 planets confirmed so far. Kamino, Naboo, Kashyyyk, Yavin IV, Tatooine, Endor, Hoth, Jakku, Vardos, Takodana, Crait (free dlc after release) and Starkiller Base.

    * Da’qar (or however its spelled- Resistance Base in VII) is possibly that asteroid field in the trailer.

    * A guy leaked info a lil while back about what would be shown here today, he was right about everything. This guy claims Geonosis is in the game, so this is considerable.

    * Weapons, designs, and voices from TCW. The CIS “Announcer” is a tactical droid voice. As you pointed out, the SBD and B-1 have their TCW voices, the Clones have Baker as the voice. The clone Jumptrooper is a design lifted straight from TCW, its just recolored, and the officers are also use TCW designs. The DC-17 is the sidearm, and the Z-6 rotary blaster is in game. I think the shields are even notable, as they look kinda like Mando shields but bigger, while also working like gungan shields and riot shields seen in TCW.

    The ATRT moves much more like TCW than like in the old battlefront, it looks very nimble and swift.

    The N-1 is playable on Naboo! V-wing is one of the republic fighters. Vulture droids- duh.

    I’m surprised they brought Jakku back… it wasn’t very liked in the first game and it doesn’t seem relevant to the new movie as much. Was just around for a bit at the start of TFA.

    They announced all the DLC is free, however the game is going to have micro transactions. I have a feeling it will be like Halo 5, free DLC maps but micro transactions specified towards one game mode. Halo 5 had warzones and the transactions were in the form of weapons and vehicles for that specific game mode.

    They could do the same for say Galactic Conquest here or something

    Do you know a list of Heroes by any chance?

    My guess is launch Heroes will include:

    Boba Fett
    Han Solo
    Luke Skywalker
    Darth a Vader
    Emperor Palpatine
    Leia

    (The original 6 from last game)

    Yoda
    Maul
    Jango
    Obi-Wan
    Finn
    Phasma
    Rey
    Kylo Ren

    Also on the Ambush Games, people are speculating that the Tantive IV will be in the game.

    At the start of the gameplay trailer when it transitions from first order to Stormtrooper to clones. When it’s on the Stormtroopers with Vader walking by it appears to be in the corridors of the Tantive IV

    Yeah I kinda assumed that was maybe just for the trailer.

    We will be boarding a rebel capital ship in the story though.

    Jakku is back because its part of the story. I think they will be making newer maps for it.

    Wookiees will be playable special units on Kashyyyk! They are not done with droideka yet (also a special unit), and arent sure whether it will be ready by launch, but they are trying.

    I’m guessing they will have a DLC focused on each era. Prequels, Originals and Sequels.

    Personally the only other prequel maps I could see them adding are Geonosis and Coruscant really. That’s assuming Geonosis isn’t in the launch game but as of now we only have Naboo, Kamino, Kashyyyk confirmed.

    I still wouldn’t mind a Rebels DLC, I think Lothal would be a pretty interesting map. It feels a lot like a real life city/ town. We don’t really see that civilian aspect in Star Wars much, so could be a nice close quarters place

    This looks sooo good!
    Yes, Newan, I’m kind of surprised there isn’t at least like a Lothal map or something.

    They could make a Mandalore map if they want to do a Rebels focus somewhere. It should be a major focus in the final season of Rebels.

    Empire vs Mandalorians. Gar Saxon as imperial lead, Bo-Katan or Sabine as Mandalorian lead. Though if any Rebels character was to be a hero in this game, I’d want Kanan

    The good thing about their new system, they arent doing set DLCs past the first one, it sound like they will keep updating us with stuff occasionally.

    They often do that for free DLC games. Problem is that we don’t know how much bonus content we will get, and they could stop doing it suddenly after a few months for no reason

    Still sad we don’t get TCW characters like Ahsoka. 🙁

    We don’t exactly know that yet, there’s defintley some Clone Wars stuff in the game already.

    No Heroes that we know of yet

    I feel like they will try to make this one last, and support it longer than the first.

    We don’t know Nam. They will have to knock out the obvious ones first (Obi Wan, Yoda, etc) before getting to Ahsoka. But she should be high on their list of characters for that era.

    They’ve lifted a lot of things from the shows for this game. Im hoping to see some starships like the Republic Y Wing and droid Hyena bomber.

    Reworked flight gameplay coming the 21st! Will show a trailer and release gameplay footage for Space Assault. Map is Fondor Imperial Shipyards, its really cool looking. Shipyard itself is based on the shield gate station from Rogue One. Some hero ships confirmed are the Falcon, Black One (Poe), Scimitar (Darth Maul).

    In the background you can make out an Arquitens command cruiser. What role it would have is unknown, could be decor… could be more? We’ll see!

    Not sure why they made the Fondor shipyard look like the Rouge One shield station, seems like prettt lazy design since they likely just ripped that from the Scariff DLC and added a bit on.

    Tbh I’m less interested in space battles, I never really liked them in the old Battlefronts either, I prefer land modes

    I think they are trying to give the Empire a cohesive look in regard to space stations. I like it, they beefed it up and added a ton of extra parts. The model for the Scarif DLC doesn’t look as good as this one. It kinda reminds me of some concepts for Rogue One, where Scarif was depicted having shipyards instead of a shield gate.

    Teaser leaked. We were going to get a trailer and gameplay monday. From this you can see:

    * Republic Y-Wing, V-Wing, ARC-170.

    * Good look at Venators, can see Arquitens among Republic ships.

    * Droid Tri fighter, Vulture droids

    * Good look at Kamino’s stormy environment.

    * Looks like some dynamic things happen with capital ships (Venator crashing).

    * Hero ships: Yoda, Kylo, Poe, Falcon, Slave I, Luke, and Maul.

    * Since they have shown us TIE bombers and now Republic Y-Wings, I think its safe to say all factions have a fighter-bomber. So Hyenna bomber is likely for droids.

    * Resistance, First Order fighting around (and apparently in) the Resurgent class Battle Cruiser.

    Giving Yoda a ship is kinda weird, but then again we really don’t have any other heroes for the Republic. They only confirmed Yoda right? No Anakin or Obi-Wan? Giving one of them a ship is more reasonable.

    It seems they’re putting quite a lot of effort in this Battlefront but now they have more resources to spend on gameplay this go around as before they had to design the engine and graphics and everything, now they can just reuse that stuff and they can reuse a lot of the OT models

    Longer trailer with some location labels.
    OT: Fondor, Death Star Debris
    PT: Ryloth, Kamino
    ST: Unknown Regions (just out in space I think)

    I dont think this is all they have either.

    One speculation I see is it is possible we are hearing Anakin and Ahsoka at one point over Ryloth. The female does sound like Ahsoka.

    The Battlefront 2 beta that is going on now is a lot of fun, I really like the heavy and specialist classes, but I also have a super good perk for the heavy as well.

    The officer seems underpowered to me but I don’t have any perks for him. Anyways the Naboo battle is awesome, I wish they had more heroes/ villains in the beta but there will be 14 at launch. Can only get perks for Han and Boba right now which makes playing Maul and Rey kinda useless tbh since they won’t be as powerful.
