The concept art looks pretty good! But I'm not sure about this Tor Valum being Palpatine's master...

There’s also artwork of Rey with a double bladed lightsaber, a Kylo Ren that looks exactly like Revan, and Hux stabbing himself with a lightsaber.

This doesn’t mean all of this stuff would appear in the movie, but it looked pretty gosh darn cool.

Honestly Battlefront II is a pretty decent game aside from the whole loot boxes bullshit that EA shoved in. And with those removed the game is quite fun.

Does EA Battlefront 2 let you have massive Jedi battles around the streets of Mos Eisley set to the original ending song from ROTJ? Chekcmate, atheists.

But it was free just a few months ago on xbox one man....got pick up on those free star war deals.
Most of my star wars games on my xbox were free ranging from both classic battle fronts to jedi star fighter and everything in between...i had to buy Kotor though but it was literally a few dollars for both.

Meh....people have already said majority of what is was gonna say so ill just point out the kylo ryn died like three times, The knights of ren sucked, darth sidious did a wardrobe change in the middle of a scene(not for the better i might add),
Why the hell didnt it show landos epic journey gathering the galaxy to rise against the empire(im not saying first order), Rey sucked in lightsaber combat and had to be helped by leias cheap distraction, and last but not least the unlimited power that shocked half the freakin sky didnt take out a single ship.....because reasons

To each is own, I liked the use of force healing in that movie tbh. Might be beacuse like a month or two ago I finally finished watched all of Avatar the last air bender and water bending healing kinda grew on me.

The lightsaber duels where epic to me. The fight between Kilo Ren and Ray on the ruins of the second death star was sweet. Wouldn't call that ray sucking at combat.
The power did take out lots of ships. Kinda like the Ion cannon from the Clone wars tv show. Ray was just able to stop it tho.

It seems like January 2020 was a good time to pick it up, since a quick look at the update history suggests it used to be pretty unbalanced and progression used to take longer.

In case anyone didn’t know, apparently the planet Starkiller Base was built around was Ilum and not just some ice planet, as confirmed in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker: The Visual Dictionary. That’s kinda sad. Ilum was sacred to the Jedi, but it ended up a superweapon with the lightsaber crystals used as a power source.

Not to mention all the desecrated graves of the Imperial and Republic players that died in the great SWTOR pvp war.

Also there was a cool easter egg showing that in Fallen Order.

Surprised it took so long.

I mean, one of the characters from the campaign was a Shoretrooper on Scarif, and Kylo Ren briefly sees Scarif in his playable segment.

I guess they wanted to focus on PT and ST content first since Battlefront 2015 was mainly OT.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is a success. Selling 8 million units so far. Surpassing all of EA's projections.

Looks like EA was wrong, this is a triumph of single player. For a long time- companies like EA insisted that only multiplayer/co-op/online services only games were profitable because of the more opportunities for micro-transactions it allows for. There is obviously still a market for games with few to no lootboxes and no recurring monetization.

What if the Second Sister from Fallen Order had been Barriss Offee? :thonking:

For real though, it’d be cool if they did something with her again. She went crazy. They put her in jail instead of killing her. Seems like prime Inquisitor material.
