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.

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.

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.

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....

I'm not finding the control for the vehicles on BF2 very intuitive. If it's similar to that, then I'm out.

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.

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.
