Good god I hoped they learned their lesson from the Battlefront II debacle.

I don't own a VR set but a Rogue Squadron VR game (or X-wing vs TIE Fighter) would be amazing. That brief little tease they had on PS4 was just that. A friend let me try it. I'd buy a VR set if that was a reality, which this likely won't be. :lol:

Oh wow a sequel to Rogue Squadron?!

But this is EA so I guess I shouldn't get too excited yet.

I hope it controls better than the vehicles in Battlefront. For some reason the controls always felt really strange when controlling the vehicles. Too loose or something.

Pre-orders are up. Price is only $39.99. Interesting.

Kind of indicates to me this will be a blown out, stand alone version of the flight combat mode from BF2. Or maybe thatís just the end of a generation price. Who knows.

Itís the right price, I liked that mode in BF2, and lived the Rogue Squadron games, so Iím in regardless.

Looks pretty good so far. Honestly though I didnít even finish Jedi: Fallen Order yet. Good game, but I got tired of it after a while. Need to go back to it though. I might wait until this is discounted.

My last SW fighter experience was SW Arcade on the 32X and the awesome snowspeeder stage in Shadows of the Empire. If this can be fun without being an overbearing flight sim type of game, I might grab this.

K&AJones 06-15-20 01:18 PM

Re: Star Wars Squadrons - EA
 
Well...if this follows EA's Battlefront and Battlefront 2...the Single Player Story/Campaign will be more or less a small add-on....and with a price of $40.00 right now, that pretty much tells me there is not a whole lot invested in the SP Part. Shame as it looks good but something like this would be really fun solo or with co-op in mind but not with some 7-10hr campaign....

LorenzoL 06-15-20 02:02 PM

Re: Star Wars Squadrons - EA
 
I'm not finding the control for the vehicles on BF2 very intuitive. If it's similar to that, then I'm out.

Rob V 06-15-20 02:34 PM

Re: Star Wars Squadrons - EA
 
I can't get excited about this... it looks like BF2 in every sense (and that's a bad thing). EA has completely shite the bed with regards to SW games.

Deftones 06-15-20 04:20 PM

Re: Star Wars Squadrons - EA
 
Now up for preorder on Amazon at least for PS4

I mean their last game was both critically and commercially well received and on numerous best of the year lists so I would say they're at least heading in the right direction.

I hear ya.. Jedi New Order was well received (although many of us found it bland on this site) but that was by Respawn. While BF2 is visually awesome, I cannot quite nail why it doesn't resonate with me. I'll give this game a shot... it's SW and I'm a sucker for it.

I heard her say you can play the entire campaign in VR, right? That was the best feature of Battlefront on the PS4.

Michael Corvin 06-19-20 07:54 AM

Re: Star Wars Squadrons - EA
 
Yeah, so I got my wish. Full game in VR but I have no VR.

I know this is current consoles, but I'm sure a PS5 & Series X are already in the works. Has Sony mentioned anything about a new/updated PSVR for PS5?

Rob V 06-19-20 11:11 AM

Re: Star Wars Squadrons - EA
 
^^ Not to my knowledge. I hope they do but it can't be bogged down with wires. Having the Quest has spoiled me and I can't see going backwards now.

The new Star Wars game is coming to PS5 and Xbox Series X. More specifically, Star Wars: Squadron, the latest Star Wars game since Jedi: Fallen Order will release on PS5 and Xbox Series X, however, there's some bad news for those upgrade to the next-gen console. While the game will be available on both PS5 and Xbox Series X, these versions of the game will not feature any upgrades. In other words, they will be just like the PS4 and Xbox One versions.

https://comicbook.com/gaming/news/st...ies-x-release/

It looks like if the game is well received, EA would consider upgrading the game.

EA not going the extra mile.... shocking.

Michael Corvin 07-30-20 03:11 PM

Re: Star Wars Squadrons - EA
 
So theoretically you could have a PS4/XBO version for $60 and an identical copy on PS5/XSX for $70? :lol: Okay EA.

The Cow 07-30-20 03:19 PM

Re: Star Wars Squadrons - EA
 
PS5 and XSX are both backwards compatible, right? :lol:

Wow, I somehow missed that. But this is EA. So is this game going to run on a subscription model or something like that?

ďMore satisfying than Rise of SkywalkerĒ Yeah, I believe that. Of course that bar ainít high.

No microtransactions, no subscriptions.

Re: Star Wars Squadrons - EA
 
I've been eyeing flight sticks to go along with this. One of the old X-Wing/Tie Fighter games was probably the last time I used one. This looks like a good reason to pick one up again.

Polygon Review :
(Opening paragraph)
Star Wars: Squadrons is every inch the spaceflight simulation that fans have been dreaming of for a generation. It accommodates players in extraordinary ways, from the quality of its many controller options to its ability to form parties across multiple platforms. It’s also one of the most focused games that Electronic Arts has produced in the last 15 years.
(Closing paragraph)
Simply put,
Star Wars: Squadrons is the total package. If all you have at your disposal is a console, a decent TV, and a working controller, you’re going to have a wonderful time. If you have a throttle, stick, and rudder pedals, you’re really in for a treat. And, if you happen to be able to afford VR, you may never want to take that headset off again.
